Building Report was given by Felix. The spotlights on the front of the building need to be looked at. They don’t work all of the time. Karen has gotten two estimates for rain gutters for about $950. Mike will look into Home Depot and the cost of doing the installation ourselves. There will be more information to follow. Bryan said the meeting reminder road signs were not put out because of snow plowing. Parking lot for the Association Building had been plowed and cleared for the meeting. A suggestion was made to send a check to Alan Bowman to help pay for his gas and show our appreciation. The new half wall counter top has been created and delivered. A work day will be set up to install. Motion to accept the report was made by Paul and seconded by Mike. The motion carried.
Corral Report was given by Bryan. Some of the fence in the lower corral was knocked down by a vehicle. The horses can’t get out onto the road as the upper corral gate is closed. The repair will have to wait until spring. No evidence of who did the damage. The old shed needs flashing repairs. It has been repaired in the past but now ice is forming and dangerous for the horses. The corral boarder agreement is being updated. One major change will be the elimination of a waiting list. New fees for non-members are also being discussed. Motion to accept the report was made by Karen and seconded by Mike. The motion carried.
Pond Report was discussed. The pond is still frozen. The question about dredging will be looked into in the spring. Ice fishing has been going on with holes being drilled all over eliminating an ice skating area. Signs will be created next year to designate fishing/skating sections. Hatchery will deliver trout in June. Al Cook volunteered to be pond manager this year and will begin checking the trash cans. Motion to accept the report was made by Paul and seconded by Mike. The motion carried.
