He said that he would be calling John Zimmerman. Mr. David said he had received an email from John Zimmerman stating that he had talked with Mr. Talbott. Mr. Talbott had explained that the first step would be finding out if anyone had any interest in the buildings or property. If no one had any ties or interest in the property, then they could proceed with demolition of the buildings.

Mr. Leber said they found a new tractor to replace the old one and were going to install the sickle mower on it while it was there. He said they said that if they couldn’t get the new tractor here in time for the first mowing session, they would bring a loaner out so Dave could stay with his mowing schedule.
