Report by Manager Tim Fall. Discussed the 27 units at the storage area that are to be removed. Discussed acquisition of a radar unit for the Security Patrol. Also discussed the pump to be installed at the lakes for fire control and the removal and burning of the brush pile at the Maintenance Area. Manager Fall also mentioned that the Sheriff’s Department will have a meeting in White Birch after school starts to set up a Neighborhood Watch Program. Linda Brabant requested that the meeting be on a weekend so homeowners who work during the week can attend that meeting.
Manger Fall stated that he has done some research into the removal of the brush pile. He stated that it would be more cost effective for us to remove and burn the pile ourselves instead of contracting it out. But he feels that we should chain off the road to that area and monitor what goes in and when. Some discussion ensued. Roy Miller moved that we place a chain across the entrance to the Maintenance Area and have it be used by members only in a monitored and controlled manner. Seconded by Linda Brabant. All in favor. Carried. Ann Hobart, lot #453, requested a sign be placed at the entrance stating when the area will be open, what can be brought in and an alternative area in the county that it can be hauled to.
An audience member questioned the missing birch trees at the entrance. Manager Fall stated that they had been vandalized and they will be replaced.
The manager stated that he is taking reservations for the storage of trailers at the campground and wanted to know if they wanted the fee changed before he started taking the money from members. The board agreed to leave the fee as it is for the next storage year. There was some discussion on the storage area and the progress that is being made to upgrade that section. Also discussed the idea of “storage units”. Jay Farr would like that item added to the agenda for next month’s meeting. Manager Fall would also like to have “2 trailers per lot” added to the agenda for next month’s meeting. Manager Fall and Roy Miller will research previous information on this topic.
Linda Brabant moved to adjourn the meeting. Seconded by Pat Zakalowski. All in favor. Meeting adjourned at 10:10am. Next meeting will be Saturday, September 11th at 9:00am.
