FUNDING FOR NEW PARKING LOT:   Because the road crew did most of the work on the parking lot we were able to save about half the original cost. We used our stock pile of gravel, rented the equipment, used the McNaughton crew, and spread the fill ourselves, the project should cost around $20,000.00.
