Treasurer’s Report: Mike Schirmacher was welcomed as the new interim Treasurer. Treasurer’s report was given and accepted.
Payment of Road Dues – Discussion…those who do not pay their road dues by August 1, 2010 should be sent a letter reminding them of nonpayment. Only those property owners who have paid their Road Dues and Club membership can participate in Laurel Falls Association Club functions/activities.
Vehicle Permits – Property owners continue to purchase Vehicle Permits…comment was made they are not wearing well and the coating comes off…President will look into this.
Club Liquor License – Tabled from last meeting. Decision to pay 2009 & 2010 LCB fees ($400)
to keep liquor license was tabled as Davey Cook will look into whether we can sell the license or just give it up.
Bridge – Bruce Saia will be able to build the pilings for the reconstructed bridge on lower Laurel Falls Road after July 21, 2010. Joe Saia, Road Manager will schedule work to have the steel beams set and wooden decking installed….this will be done with volunteer labor. Perry Yoder has acquired the wooden decking and will deliver it when we are ready. Payment will be sent to Perry for the wood. The road will have to be closed for a minimum of 2 weeks as work will take place over 2 weekends.
Laurel Falls Assoc. Annual Picnic – Voted to hold the picnic in the pavilion on Saturday, August 21, 2010. Since Sudor’s will not be supplying the beer, decision was made to charge $5 per person (adults) and ask everyone to bring a dish to share. The $5 will cover meat and beverages. George & Janet Senka will take the lead.
Propane Tank – propane tank is full and not being used. Question is whether the company that owns the tank and supplies the propane will take it out due to low usage…we’ll wait to see if we are contacted.
Dumpster – Joe Saia asked that we get a dumpster put back in the parking lot at the Club to be used by those permanent and part-time residents who will pay an annual fee to use it. Only a once a month pick-up will be necessary. It will have to be “bear proof” and locked. Mike will look into getting one the same size as the previous dumpster.
Beach at the Lake – Joe Saia (for Bruce Saia) asked permission to dig out the grass on the far side of the lake and replace it with white sand to make a “real” beach. Bruce Saia would do the digging and purchase the sand…NO COST to Laurel Falls.
Mowing – The field across from the Club needs to be mowed. Davey Cook will check with Paul Plosser and Dave Gnagey about having this done.
NOTE: Next Laurel Falls Association meeting will be held on Friday, July 16, 2010 at 7 p.m. at the Club.
Meeting adjourned at 8:25 p.m.
Respectfully submitted by Janet Senka
