Over a period of time, the procedure in which facilities operations handles individual requests for painting maintenance or improvements has evolved into a situation which requires a review of the department’s policy.
It has become necessary to revise this procedure as a cost containment measure. The purchase, handling, storage, and inventory of several accent paint colors are driving cost increases that we can no longer sustain.
Painting requests will be initiated as they have in the past. The request will be reviewed by a facilities representative to determine if the painting is a required maintenance issue. If the request is denied by facilities, the request may be re-introduced as a departmental charge.
Henceforth, base paint color shall be Antique White, with the option of using one of eight accent colors for a single wall and/or room trim (if desired).
Contact Facilities Operations at 5601 for access to the accent colors.
