She informed them that the County Attorney has graciously donated funds from the Diversion fund to purchase 2 upright freezers and refrigerators to help with this project. Also, she suggested that the use of the Community Building would be the best place as a temporary station to help with storage of commodities, access of picking up the items for the public with a drive through access effect. She requested them to consider to contributing funds to this project in the amount of $20,000. Kristi asked Jeff to speak to them on the operations and the effects they are dealing with.
