Jerry offered to contact Steve Nelson to assist in Steve’s duties as Blue Lake Commissioner. People want to launch their boats.
- VICE PRESIDENT, Laura Cohen Seale:
Laura was concerned about safety issues due to road closures around the neighborhood during the triathalon. Many members experienced the inability to travel or long delays over the weekend. Jerry offered to contact Metro and the Park Manager to express the need for changes to the current handling of human and vehicle traffic.
- SECRETARY, Michelle Monson:
A motion was approved to give gift certificates to the out-going board members: Bob Torheim, Gary McCoy, and Roger Keast. Laura agreed to purchase the certificates from Bumper’s in the amount of $50 each.
Accompanying cards will be signed by current board members at the next meeting.
- TREASURER, Kevin Morrow:
Funds were expended to cover park refurbishing expenses in the amount of $287.70. $300 went for Welsh Park landscaping via billpay, and PGE was paid via autopay.
The current checking account total is $15,472. Roger Keast prepared an Operating Budget dated June 1, 2016 for the 2016/17 yearly expenses
in the amount of $23,110, with anticipated expenses estimated at $22,900 leaving a projected $210 in the account.
Currently, we have 84 paid members, 8 associate members, 2 honorary members, and 19 boats are registered for Blue Lake.
- FLPOA/IWPUD LIAISON COMMISSIONER, Debbie Weaver:
Debbie reported that FLPOA and PUD are developing a plan to improve the boat ramp access to Fairview Lake. The current gravel drive will be paved.
Tom requested an invitation to be included in the next meeting.
An herbicide application is scheduled for Fairview Lake. Residents will receive notification soon with the date and time. Tom requested the applicator’s name.
The City of Fairview has park improvement plans using free labor from Mt. Hood College students.
- BLUE LAKE COMMISSIONER, Steve Nelson:
- ROADS AND PARKS COMMISSIONER, Tom Burns:
Tom will submit receipts for expenditures for asphalt, labor, and a light for the pump house on Welsh Park for approximately $220.
The portapotties will be set up very soon in Welsh Park. Jerry requested
they be placed April through October.
Tom has spent a great amount of time with county officials and the City of Fairview in order to determine just which agency is responsible for paving the area at 216th and Lachenview. Both agencies denied responsibility for the area. Curt Knight, a previous parks and roads commissioner for Interlachen, Inc., said that the area was and IS under county maintenance.
Tom will continue to seek documentation as to whose duty it is to keep that part of the road paved and safe.
Special gratitude to Don Blain for restaining and painting the Interlachen sign at Marine Drive. It looks spectacular! Don needs to be contacted regarding his expenses so we can reimburse him.
4. REPORTS FROM COMMITTEES:
- SOCIAL COMMITTEE, Debbie Weaver and Margie Rieff:
The Pancake Breakfast is coming up on June 18, 2016 at 9 am. Margie expressed the need for more volunteers and added a few names to the schedule. Kevin Morrow and Ed Flanagan will pick up the griddles and fuel. Thanks to everyone involved for their hard work.
The social committee prepared a flyer listing upcoming events which will be distributed soon.
5. OLD BUSINESS:
- Welsh Park/Ownership and property tax payments:
Michelle obtained the Quitclaim Deed from Mel Reiff and will provide a copy for Tom Burns as well. This document clarifies the easement to Welsh Park, giving access to PUD as needed.
6. NEW BUSINESS:
Margie Reiff suggested that we install a security camera at both entrance points on Interlachen due to thefts in our neighborhood. Tom would install and maintain the cameras and necessary equipment. The cost was estimated to be $1,500. Because the expenditure exceeds the $1,000 limit, approval by members is needed. Also, there was discussion about placing a camera at Welsh Park.
It was suggested that a notice be included on the back of the Pancake Breakfast flyer explaining the need for a special meeting to authorize the
expenditure for the camera/s. The meeting could be held at Blue Lake House.
Margie expressed the need for BLIA to organize and have meetings. Apparently, John Wissler volunteered to take over as president for Jeff Townsend. Communication needs to continue between BLIA, Metro, and the Blue Lake Park management.
The next Board Meeting will be held on:
MONDAY, JULY 11, AT 6:30 PM
at the home of LAURA COHEN SEALE
21511 NE Interlachen Lane
