Food service discussion and a possible solar panel initiative topped SGA’s agenda this past Tuesday.
Representatives from Sodexo attended the first part of the meeting, looking for feedback from SGA on behalf of the students on what they think about the changes both in the caf and the Hub. Many of the representatives noted that there needs to be more hands behind the deli counter in the caf. Chef Todd noted that he will look into getting more staff as his next project. Sodexo also mentioned that they are looking at offering some more options in the Hub for students. SGA thanked Sodexo for coming in and listening to their concerns.
Last week, the executive committee met with people from the solar initiative on campus on using some of the ConServe money for solar panels on campus. A company called New Vision offers equipment for solar panels for people to build on-site. Instead of selling them pre-assembled (or assembling them themselves), they sell the parts and train people within the community to build and service them. The executive commitee presented this as a possible idea for the ConServe funds. Questions raised included where the savings would go, and how much outside money would be raised by the solar initiative group.
In other business, SGA will be serving pancakes with toppings at Morning on the Green for a nominal cost. The AAC representative position is still vacant; however, SGA does have a few more candidates up for consideration.
