Staff Issues/Concerns

1.        Much larger television and floor mats for exercise classes; Great participation!

2.        Seeking ways to implement a more stringent protocol for offenses committed by patrons of the HWHCC

3.        Two-way Radios

4.     Significant drop in children attending center, typical during this time of year. There is an increase in adult participation in Parkers' exercise program and other forms of adult recreation. 

5.    Kitchen stove needs to be replaced.

6.     Budget Compliance
