At the Council Meeting, items were presented to the City Council related to Gamble.
1. It was suggested that the pump at Gamble was operational when the City assumed responsibility for the property; but during the period the City held the property, it stopped functioning and was not repaired. According to Susan Lovallo and Glen Walker, the pump was operational for a short period of time when the property was under City management. It did stop working. After consultation with the Museum, it was decided not to repair the pump. When the City left, the pump was still on property.
2. It was stated that there is no water at Gamble. The City did extend water to the property. When the City left, we did disconnect water service to Gamble. The meter is still there. Water service could easily be established by the Museum simply by putting up a deposit and having water service turned on.
3. The plumbing at the Gamble House was disconnected. It was a joint decision made by the City and the Museum. There was a concern that water lines would break because of their age and would damage the building.
4. There was a discussion about the septic tank. During the renovations process, the septic tank was damaged. The contractor made repairs to the septic tank and pumped it out. When the City left, the septic tank was in place and functional.
When our maintenance staff left Gamble, an inventory and condition of the facilities was recorded. I have asked Susan to provide the City Council with a copy of the inventory and the condition of the facilities as of October 1, 2007. That was the date the City turned over the facilities to the Museum. Also, I have asked her to provide all of the other information related to the pump, septic tank, water service, and plumbing at Gamble. I think it is important for the City Council to have copies of these materials in place.
