President Dennis has sent proposal for Swimming Pool to Lina for funding. Abe said DOC will be meeting in 2 weeks.
Tom will look for a manufacturer who might be able to supply all parts for swimming pool ie: pipe engineering, pumps, play equipment, etc.
Jim advised us that we have $145,000 in swimming pool fund.
Abe asked if we had a back up plan if this funding didn’t come through. Billy mentioned that Soccer has 3 million dollar funding coming in from FIFA for a multiple sports facility and 7 million after that. Suggested we talk to them to get more info and if swimming might be included. Abe will talk to Faivae who is the President of the Soccer Association.
Abe mentioned if American Samoa Development Authority had any funding?
