The project should be complete by the end of the month. This would make the project under time. The original projection was 18 months. They’ve been working on it since the spring of 2011, so it’s only been about 16 months so far. GM said he thought it would take two years minimum, so he admits he was wrong about that.
New GERMS ambulance. In case you didn’t know, GERMS is a fantastic free service Georgetown students provide to the community. It’s a free ambulance service staffed by trained EMTs. You ought to add their number to your phone: (202) 687-4357.
