Minutes – not available 2. Treasures Report – WTA will be paid tomorrow. Money is owed for the CAN grant. This will bring the balance down to approximately zero. Presbytery funds can be used for utilities and building expenses over and above the rents we are receiving. Conversations with tenants regarding rent now that we have a property agreement. Administrative Commission agreed with the idea that there should be a lease with option to buy related to the building so that grant funders know that we have that in place.

Michelle from First Ward would like one of the after-school programs to be housed here. This would be another source of income
