Communication from Mr. May:

Oakland University wishes to submit a request to the State Department of Administration for an appropriation of $59,300 to provide eight constant differential pressure reducing valve assemblies.

Last year the legislature appropriated $180,000 for additional heating capacity at Oakland. It has now been determined that these valve assemblies are needed to regulate and control the flow of high temperature water in the new system.

This problem has been discussed with the State Building Division, and the Oakland officials believe the request will receive favorable consideration.

I would recommend that the Trustees approve the submission of this supplemental request.

On motion by Mr. Harlan, seconded by Dr. Smith, it was voted to approve the above recommendation provided the Kahn Company agrees that these valves are needed.
