Why will it take a month for staff to remove items from the Activity Center?
Staff continues to have their regular assignments that they are required to do. Removing equipment and furnishings is in addition to their existing jobs. Moving out is more complicated than it first appears. Items need to be inventoried, sorted for keeping or discarding, protected and packed, and then moved out and stored. We are trying to keep some assets like some audio-visual items rather than replace them. This takes coordination with the architect and contractor. In addition, staff are trying to squeeze in their vacations during the summer months. We will try to speed the process, but we would rather allow for the added time.
