Accept Budget per the following – Mary / 2nd Lynda

  3. How are we charged for the attorney fees for the liens?
  4. Can we get statements delivered itemized?
  5. Can we see Pats itemized hours?

E-mail other questions of concerns to Allen by Friday about budget items for him to take up with Pat Moore.
