Air conditioning units, once operating at half capacity, are now at full strength, according to Arena Operations Manager Greg Moss.
“They had to replace two to three compressors along with some fan motors,” said Moss of the work completed to the four 120-ton units. “It was things which had gone down over the years.”
A catwalk was also added to make the units more easily accessible.
Lawson Welding did the work on the project.
In other board business, a new vice chairman and secretary were voted on by the seven-member group. Jane Clark Summers was elected vice chairman. Summers takes over the position after Sam Tull was replaced by Corinth Board of Alderman on July 2. Tull, whose term was slated to expire in August, was voted vice chairman in a June 19 meeting.
The board had been without a vice chairman since March after Alva Dalton resigned after six years as part of the board. Penn Majors was selected by aldermen to take Dalton’s seat.
Dr. Hardwick Kaye was reelected as chairman of the board and Sharon Franks was chosen to assume Summer’s role as secretary. Jackie Coombs will join the board next month to fill Tull’s spot.
“Jackie is eager to get to work,” said General Manager Tammy Genovese of the new board member.
Discussion was made about the forming of five committees to assist the board. The proposed committees, which will be chaired by a member of the arena board and made up of other members in the community, include executive with a sub-committee of finance/personnel, events/activities, marketing/sponsorship, building/grounds and community advisory.
Kay and Genovese will serve as ex officio members on each committee.
