Mr. Reimel provided his opinion that the proposed plans were great drawings, but that they might be a bit too grand for the borough's current needs. Two different builders, he stated, had given their opinion that the plans were viable, but as designed they would be quite expensive. Mr. Puzo addressed the questions which council members had that evening, and readily agreed to attend a builders' meeting.

Mr. Puzo stated that some in the field felt 30 year to be more reasonable; Mr. Yeager agreed wondering if anyone had been around long enough yet to test 50 year shingles. Mr. Reimel acknowledged Mr. Yeager for his work in keeping this entire process moving along. A meeting date and time were established.
