THE WEEK IN REVIEW
Morris Lake was 21 inches below the top of the spillway on 4.4.16.

Document review continues on the exciting RPM Newton Town Centre project with the financial agreement, ground lease, developers agreement and deeds being worked on as we speak.

My quarterly meeting with Dr. Greene went very well – lots of exciting things happening on both ends of Trinity!
