Purpose: The maintenance committee is to make sure that all of the facilities and maintenance items in the parish are being addressed or covered by someone, whether paid or volunteers. This includes routine and preventive maintenance, upgrades, and new capital investments. This means that they are to assign to the responsibility to someone who the office management or anyone can call if there is a problem. They are also responsible along with the office management to keep a preferred list of vendors used and reliable. The committee is advisory to the pastor on major projects and will get bids and the information necessary for them to make a recommendation to the pastor on a given facility/maintenance item. Those on the committee can do the work themselves or make recommendations as to who can do the work.
Membership: The committee consists of around 7 members through a process of appointment or volunteering. All are responsible to help out where they can, helping get issues tracked down and other things. The term is left to the discretion of the pastor.
Ideally the maintenance committee should have (3) elected officers: Chairperson, Vice chairperson, secretary, and should meet quarterly. Additional meetings would be added if needed.
Anyone interested should contact Fr. Francis or the parish office at 419-499-4274.
