Report given by Roy Miller. Discussed removal of abandoned trailers and expansion of storage area.
Manager Tim Fall discussed the Gypsy Moth situation. No state funds this year as the county did not submit us for spraying because of bureaucratic difficulties. We definitely need to be sprayed as our population of moths is high. To do this on our own will be approximately $15,000.00. Letters will be written to the state and the county to express our dissatisfaction with the situation. Steve Bryant moved that we have the manager proceed with the paperwork etc. for Gypsy Moth spraying and report back to the board at next months meeting. Don Kuester seconded the motion. All in favor. Carried. This will be added to the agenda for next months meeting.
Manager Fall also presented to the board samples to labels that White Birch could make on a special printer. We could print our own personalized car stickers, RV stickers and labels. The cost of the printer including software is about $1,000.00. Over time this could save us a lot of money. Board members seemed favorable to this idea.
It was asked if Doug Lake had received a raise as of yet. He was told that Doug had received his raise. He also wanted to know how the security patrol is coming along with getting communication equipment. The manager stated that they have been pursuing this and are still trying to find the best form for communicating with each other.
Frank Zakalowski, lot #1305, asked how the maintenance on our vehicles is doing. The manager stated that it is a continuing process and that Doug is doing a great job of routine maintenance. He expects the equipment to last another year.
Board member, Linda Brabant was appointed chairman for the nominating committee.
Linda Brabant moved to adjourn the meeting. Seconded by Pat Zakalowski. Meeting adjourned at 10:20am. The next meeting will be 9:00am, Saturday, March 13th 1999, at the White Birch Clubhouse.
