      Sadly, Ted resigned his position due to health concerns. We will miss Ted’s positive attitude and thoughtful contributions to discussions. Steve Nelson volunteered to do the “meet and greet” for new neighbors in the interim. Roger will see to the paperwork and collection of membership dues.

      Richard did not attend the meeting.
  5. OLD BUSINESS:
    1. Welsh Park/Ownership and property tax payments: Gary will obtain documentation on current title information; then, he can look into hiring a title company to provide documentation that the Welsh Park property is owned by Interlachen, Inc. PUD will be provided with an easement for pump house access only. This would leave Interlachen, Inc. responsible for payment of property taxes on the park, which are minimal, and would relieve PUD of any responsibility for the property.
    2. Form committee to liaise with Multnomah County Sheriff, Debbie: Debbie was not able to attend the meeting.
    3. Art in the Park: Organized by Laurie Martin-Cohn (lmartcohn@gmail.com) for August 8, 2015 from 10 am to 3 pm in Welsh Park. This event is co-sponsored with FLPOA. A request of $150 from the social committee’s budget is requested to hire a band.

Much gratitude goes out to Allen and to Bob for being our voice during this process.
