--May 16 mins approved.
Treasurer – Rod Case
Not much going on other than mowing. Sent a letter to the person a year behind. Will pay $300 this Friday then $150 per pay period after that. A couple more are approaching being a year behind.
Some options for our expiring CD: leave it (rollover), put it in dividend-paying stock, a municipal-bond fund, or a moderate allocation fund like Vanguard Wellington. Rod will do more research including whether the by-laws have any limitations. Board voted unanimously to authorize Rod to move the money into the Vanguard Wellington fund if there are no detrimental tax consequences.
Roads – Terry Deschenes
Cleaned the ditch up on the loop road. Will get a quote on putting the pipe in for the spring (~$800), plus some annual consulting on the roads.
Brenden: have made progress on roadside cleanup work lately, including new “turtles”
Water – Evan Lurton
Six more lots ready to plumb, pending weather and schedule. Held the state mandated public meeting 19 June 2013. Annual report is due July 1….goal will be 2% reduction in water use over six years.
Community Property - Marty Johnson
Ian has done some mowing lately. Otherwise, community property is doing fine. Only a couple gazebo rentals scheduled. Terry will talk with a mole removal guy.
Lakes – Bob Liebling
Adding some grass carp next month. Working on the pipes on Lakes 4-5 and Lake 2 by Aug 17, when our permit expires. Will talk to Glenn about doing some work with his hoe. Probably won’t treat this year, but will renew the permit.
Emergency – Mark Anderson not present, no report
No new info or changes
Hospitality – Brenden Pecht
Met Brian Thompson and his wife. Brian does have experience with entertainment-type committee work. Will invite him to next month’s meeting. Brian is interested in bringing natural gas to Four Lakes.
Entertainment – committee chair open
No update on an official new replacement (Jennifer Shuck is a possible replacement). We also have a couple other candidates, such as Sara Sommercorn and Brian Thompson. Brenden will try to arrange an Entertainment committee meeting. May also schedule a community event to meet the newcomers in August.
Next meetings scheduled for July 18th, August 15th and September 19th, all at 7pm.
