According to receiver representative David Manning in a letter to the court, September's work focused on procurement and permitting activities as well as the implementation of the cart roll out program. Manning billed 143 hours for that month, for a total of $35,750, while GBB Vice-President Chace Anderson billed $38,110 and Vice-President Chris Lund billed $33,485 for the month.
