COMMENTS FROM THE FLOOR
Billie Roffe, lot #651, wanted to request that the Gypsy Moth Spraying not be done during the Yard Sales. Manager Fall stated that the spraying should be done before that time.
It was stated that the members who live down state were not receiving the newsletter in a timely fashion. Manager Fall stated that this is something that he has been looking into.
Sue Franklin, lot#909, had concerns about the amount of tree removals taking place in White Birch. She would like to see this more carefully monitored. She also questioned the camping units already placed on lots before the specified time. It was stated that most had gotten “2 weeks permits” and the ones that didn’t were removed. After some discussion about the “2 weeks permits” it was felt that the rules and regulations concerning camping on lots should be published in the newsletter again.
Larry Franklin, lot#909, wanted to address the problem of items left on lots after the camping season ends. A rental storage area was discussed. This item will be put under “New Business” for next month’s meeting.
Steve Bryant moved that we go back to having a brush pile (to be brush only) and to have a supervised burn by the association. Jay Farr seconded the motion. After some discussion Steve moved an amendment to his motion to charge a fee to deposit brush and have it be monitored. Seconder, Jay Farr agreed to the amendment. A vote was taken on the motion with Jay Farr and Steve Bryant voting aye and Don Kuester, Linda Brabant, Pat Zakalowski and Roy Miller voting nay. Motion failed by a 4 to 2 vote. Many board members felt they needed more information about this before making a decision. This will be added to the agenda for next month’s meeting under “Unfinished Business”.

Linda Brabant moved to adjourn the meeting. Seconded by Pat Zakalowski. Meeting adjourned at 11:00am. Next meeting will be Saturday, June 12th at 9:00am at the White Birch Clubhouse.
