Mr. Maldonado demanded payment from Mr. Roope of Pacific West Communities, and received partial payment today. Board discussed possible structures of the repayment of the remaining balance due to MLH. The Board is willing to phase payments to MLH as long as Neubauer – Jennison are paid in full first and in a timely manner. If necessary Mark can give Mr. Roope more time to pay but interest will accrue on the balance.
