Board Member Newman had a citizen approached him with a question about BBWA staff assisting a contractor at sites.  GM Reblin stated that this does happen occasionally and that the contractor is charging a daily fee for his crew to assist BBWA staff during these times.  BBWA does bill the customer for the extra help.
