Mille called the meeting to order at 9:02 AM.
Updates: The roads are icy but well sanded. M&H is burning brush in the Overlook and the fire lasted longer than anticipated. The pile is still smoking after several days. The Fire Chief is involved. Many properties are still changing hands. If you see something new (a new foundation, or lots being cleared) then let Millie know.
Secretary’s Minutes of the last meeting: (attached) Motion to approve: Jeff Z, Seconded: Mary-Ellen Moroney, Approved Unanimously.
Treasurer’s Report: (attached) FYI We have Zell as a payment option thru Franklin Savings Bank now, as well as the usual check method.
There was discussion about whether the $500 fee for heavy equipment to clear a lot was in addition to the $1000 for house construction or if it would be applied toward the $1000 fee. Varying opinions were expressed and the matter was referred to the Road Committee for discussion and a recommendation for the Board.
There was a round of thanks for the great job Jeff has done.
Road Committee Report: Dave Douglas did not submit a written report, but spoke to Millie and said, “All is good.”
Waterfront Committee Report: (attached) Ed stated that our dock installer has sold his business, so Ed will be tracking down a new installer over the next few months. The next committee meeting will be in March.
Ad Hoc Committee Procedures: (attached) Larry Malone suggested that the Board give this committee specific issues to address rather than trying to create general procedures for anything and everything. He suggested issues be divided into areas such as Safety, Liability, and Cost. For example, untended minor swimmers would fall under liability. Blocking a road would fall under safety. ATVs tearing up the roads would be a cost issue. This was referred to the Road & Waterfront Committee for a list of issues in order of importance.
Other business – none.
Meeting adjourned at 9:47AM.
Next meeting Saturday, March 11 at 9AM at the RFA Lakeside Theater
