Purpose of Meeting: The meeting convened to address concerns regarding the most economical approach to proceed with the Lakeside Project.

Discussion Points:

  1. Encountered Obstacles: During the project execution, unexpected pinnacles of rock were encountered. This unforeseen challenge required a collaborative decision to determine the best course of action.
  2. Decision Making: After careful deliberation, a decision was reached by the representatives present. The representative from Artisan proposed the utilization of a Hoe-ram for rock removal and suggested monitoring the progress closely.
  3. Economic Considerations: All parties expressed a shared concern for ensuring the most cost-effective strategy moving forward. The decision to employ the Hoe-ram was made with a view to optimizing resources while effectively addressing the encountered obstacles.

Action Items:

  • Soil technician Russ Hendrix to provide necessary insights and support as required.
  • NJ Willbanks Grading Company to collaborate closely with Artisan and provide necessary assistance during the implementation phase.

Conclusion: The collaborative effort among the stakeholders resulted in a decisive course of action aimed at addressing the challenges encountered during the Lakeside Project. Moving forward, diligent monitoring and coordination will be essential to ensure the successful execution of the chosen approach while prioritizing economic efficiency.
