ELEVATOR MAINTENANCE PROPOSALS:
The purpose of this meeting was to review proposals submitted by KONE, Inc., to improve the operation and reliability of our elevators.
Mr. Stephen LaRocca and Mr. William Myles, representing KONE, covered in detail what each proposal would accomplish and cost.
To provide materials and labor to clean and sand the hoistway door tracks and car door tracks, replace all door interlocks and provide an overall cleaning for each of the four elevators. KONE INC.’s total proposed cost to complete this work is approximately $10,500. Karen will attempt to reduce the proposed cost prior to Board authorization.
To provide an upgrade to car door equipment by installing a specialized door operator which would improve performance and reduce operating noise; to provide an upgrade to each car’s signal buttons and floor call buttons; to install cable lubricator boxes and provide a complete elevator hoistway cleandown. The cost to complete this work amounts to approximately $134,000 and would cover the two elevators in Building I and the main elevator in Building II.
Due to budgetary restraints, the Board decided to go with the identified work within Proposal I which will satisfy the immediate requirement for reliable functioning elevators. The motion to accept was made by Barbara Cooledge and seconded by Jeanne Kiley. Further review of Proposal II will be part of our budget process in the Fall.
There being no further business to discuss, the meeting adjourned at 2:50 pm.
Jeanne Kiley, Secretary
