REPORTS OF OFFICERS AND COMMISSIONERS:
PRESIDENT, Allen Johnson:
See “Old Business” below.
VICE PRESIDENT, Don Jacobson:
See “Old Business” below.
FLPOA/IWPUD LIAISON COMMISSIONER, Bob Torheim:
Bob reported that PUD has contracted the services of a certified water operator to fullfil the requirement. PUD is financially sound at this time.
There is some difficulty locating water mains and shut off valves to individual homes. PUD board members are devising a map for a record of locations.
The City of Fairview is reportedly concerned about the sewer system on the north side of Fairview Lake. As of now, no plans have been presented.
The boundary codes for riparian zones along Fairvew Lake shorelines continue to be inconsistent and violators do not face penalties. FLPOA is attempting to obtain clarification from the many bureaus involved in riparian zone ordinance development and enforcement.
TREASURER, Roger Keast:
Roger presented the current budget. Check numbers 1310 through 1319 were approved by the board.
ROADS AND PARKS COMMISSIONER, Tom Burns:
Tom was absent. He reported via email correspondence. As for the road repairs by Stanley and Sons, the speed bumps are in need of striping. In lieu of the paint job, Tom is negotiating for repair of the pot hole at Interlachen Lane and 216th (after learning that homeowners are responsible for that stretch of road).
Tom requested that the board consider a budget plan to install a sprinkler system in Welsh Park. Tom has contacted Yuval Golan, Terry Schultz, and Ted Skipper to design the project. He has one bid and wants to pursue more. Allen and Roger replied via email, noting that the sprinkler project must be approved by the membership prior to commencement since it is not in the budget for this year.
See “Old Business” for more information on roads.
BLUE LAKE COMMISSIONER, Steve Nelson:
MEMBERSHIP COMMISSIONER, Ted Smits:
SOCIAL COMMITTEE, Erika Teyema:
Not present. Allen will contact Erika to request a flyer be distributed with holiday events, dates, and times.
- Troutdale Energy Center (TEC) update:
Mel Rieff and Allen drafted a statement, “Motions for Discovery,” which was rejected by the TEC lawyers as it was not “in their hands” by October 31, 2014–the statement was sent as an email prior to the deadline.
As for the “Memorandum of Understanding” to ensure our water rights are not violated, the TEC attorneys drafted a document stating that we can never sue them under any circumstances. The request to sign this document was rejected by Interlachen, Inc.
- Road Repairs: Tom is negotiating with Stanley and Sons to return to
repair the pot hole on Interlachen Lane and 216th in lieu of painting stripes on the speed bumps (see “New Business” for more information).
- Flyer for Blue Lake:
Allen intends to prepare the flyer for distribution the first week in February, 2015.
- Committee on Boat Rules: Don will form the committee targeting
completion of the changes by the 1st of March, 2015, in advance of the
annual board meeting in April.
- Pedro’s Licensing Documentation and 1099: It was decided that a 1099 form will not be provided. Pedro presented a license.
- Lake Fill Committee: Allen will chair the committee and will arrange a meeting in January of 2015.
Think about budget proposals for next year. Also, interested members need to draft a “Declaration of Intent” as consideration for board membership to be decided at the annual board meeting in April, 2015.
THE NEXT BOARD MEETING WILL BE HELD ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 6TH, 2015, AT 7:00 PM AT THE HOME OF DON JACOBSON
