SPECIAL MEETING:  RENTAL EXTRACTORS

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

At the January General Membership Meeting the PPBA Board announced its intention to get rid of the motorized extractors that the PPBA owns and rents to its members and replace them with manual extractors.  Some members voiced opposition to that plan.  We did not have time at the January meeting to hear from all opposed to that the plan and discuss it, but the PPBA Board committed at a meeting at a future date and time to resolve the issue.

 

The PPBA has a room reserved at the El Paso County Transportation facility (3275 Akers Drive, between Constitution and N. Carefree) from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, March 18th.  All who would like to come and discuss this specific issue with the board members are welcome.  Please let me know if you will attend as we will need to put names on the access roster for that day.

 

If you are unable to attend but have input, e-mail Mike Halby at this email address with your comments no later than March 16th.
