“We know that we have a backlog of maintenance needs and those need to be addressed before we start expanding. We’re always constantly working on maintenance trying to keep up on what’s needed. Continually trying to reduce the backlog, we have a big backlog of maintenance that we have scheduled or know about, we’re just trying to work on that backlog of maintenance,” said ITD’s, Wade Allen. >
