Got the latest progress report from the builder.
Now 97 percent done. Only the electric coming up out of the floor, some concrete and landscaping in front and the asphalt in the rear remain.
We have also been delayed by several weeks by the refusal of the power company to get off their asses and run the wire down the high voltage lines along the Strip in front down the pole and into our new transformer. For the first time we now have a date, this Tuesday Feb. 2nd. We have been using a temporary power hook up with only 40 amps of 110 volt so far in the construction, coming from the Airport property to the rear. The full hookup will allow us to test fire systems, air conditioning and BIG ASS FANS in preparation for final inspection and CERTIFICATE OF OCCUPANCY.
The signage is on the agenda for the County Commission meeting this Wed. Feb. 3rd. (We are not inside the City of Las Vegas, but in the unincorporated County). Staff has recommended approval, so it should be a done deal.
Around the old place things are picking up a little. Still not a lot of out-of-state plates in the parking lot, but a few more locals are venturing out of their bunkers. We also got a thousand dollars to rent out to a Hollywood movie shoot featuring 5 FINGER DEATH PUNCH. The credit card used for business purchases had a $2000 rewards balance that we claimed. We have also begun selling t-shirts, now that we won our case with the State Tax Commission. All these and other little things we are doing will add up to more help to get us across the finish line.
But the main thing that is going to make the difference is DONATIONS FROM YOU! AS shown by our Gofundme total so far, we are almost half way to our goal! Spread the word, send a little, or a lot, and together we will get this done.
