Deputy report by Jeff DeBerry: Mountain lions are being very active. There was a bobcat in Perdew’s yard.
Old Business: Paul Ellis had plans for the new shelter and dock for all to see.
New mailboxes to replace those that had been knocked down on Miner’s Way are in at Post Office waiting for contractor to put them up. People are having to go to P.O. for their mail until they are up.
New Business: Ken read a letter from one of our members, Norbert Cygan, thanking the Association for it’s care of the corrals and Association property.
Ken mentioned the right sliding door does not close and either needs to be worked on or a new one purchased. Paul Ellis will look at it. He also mentioned that the drapes on the sliding doors need heavy duty rods as the ones there sag and do not close properly. Paul Ellis moved that we get new heavy duty rods. After discussion, Jeff DeBerry seconded the motion and it carried.
One of our last year’s members questioned our fees when a member joins after the first month of the year. This person felt that when that occurs, they should not have to pay the full amount of dues. After much discussion on this matter, Brad Burk made the motion that first time new members only pay a prorated amount on just the members portion of the fee from the month they join until the end of the year. Cristina Burk seconded. After more discussion, this motion carried.
Next meeting will be March 6th: Joe Burgett, Assistant Fire Chief will present the “Ready- Set – Go” evacuation instructions. We will also vote on whether or not to include the Fish Fund with the General Fund.
Motion to close was made by Kathy Pearson, seconded by Dave Lutter and adjourned.
