Mel reported that we are within budget in light of savings on roof and income from pancake breakfast.
He recommended renewing CD at the highest rate for 8 mos with Bank of America. The board wanted to explore alternatives to Bank of America. Mel will look into credit union across street from Fairview post office.
Blue Lake Commissioner – Joe Horton
Joe advised that Metro and DEQ are not cooperating with our lake consultant, Joe Eilers. We now have a certified diver for the lake – Rick Meyers, who will periodically check the integrity of the Solarbees and notify Joe if any maintenance is needed. Water quality is reported to be much improved along with improved fishing. Fish have been observed feeding at the base of the Solarbees. The need for nutria control was raised.
Road and Parks Commissioner – Curt Knight Interim
Landscaping—The charge for trimming the Blue Lake vacant lot was $900. While this seems high, the landscaper (Chavez) trimmed more than usual (the trimming was $300 higher for the additional work). Lance and Curt monitored the job.
Roads and parks–Curt is contacting Ferris boys for help on road.
Membership – Sue Meyer
Non-members continue to be contacted.
FLOPOA – Vacant
Social – Bettianne Goetz
The pancake breakfast was most successful ever. Expenses were lower, about $350 compared to about $400 last year. Dues and banner/dvd sales totaled about $610. The next picnic in July is country with a folk singing group.
Lance advised that the PUD intends to bill addresses for lights between the light poles. Lance will provide the addresses to the PUD.
Next meeting will be August 6 at Sue Meyer’s home.
The 4th of July boat parade on Fairview lake is 5:00 pm starting at lighthouse on south shore. Parade will move clockwise hopefully making a complete circuit. Awards for boat and lakefront decorations will be awarded. Let’s knock ourselves out!!!!
