III PUBLIC COMMENTS
IV APPROVAL OF MEETING MINUTES
Mike motioned to approve the meeting minutes from the October 10,
2016 regular meeting and Art seconded. All were in favor and the minutes were approved.
- Sidney gave an Administrator report:
Ann McNeil has approved the bronze memorial plaque for Jim McNeil and it will soon be poured and shipped to the cemetery.
The Veterans memorial stone commemoration has been postponed to a more appropriate date; Memorial Day, 2017.
Sidney contacted Matt Mire with regards to Board member terms and appointments. Matt reviewed the District bylaws as well as some other District documents regarding appointments of past Board members and advised that 2 six-year consecutive terms is the maximum amount of service and then there must be a four-year waiting period before being appointed again. Six year terms of appointment are currently in place for Mike and for Art. Dick’s term is a “partial” term filling in for Jay Raiola’s 6 year term. Mike commented that “six years is a long time” and the Board all agreed that we may want to have a future discussion about changing the term limitations.
- Ray gave a Property Management report:
Ray reported that the driveway drain was repaired and is now recessed into the ground as it should be.
Soil prep was completed for the area below the upper rock foundation wall where staff planted many tulip bulbs for the spring. Peggy and Ray are just about finished with cutting down and fall clean up.
We had a cremains burial in the upper cemetery that required extra work to break through the ground. Unfortunately, the soil in the upper cemetery has a lot of rock
in the soil (about 70%). Digging casket burials we run into the same problem but they are less hassle due to the size of the digging area. Ray recommends that a
used to dig some of the cremains burials and says there is an appropriate attachment that we might purchase for the machine. The price is roughly $10,000 and the Board is not certain of the positive ROI (return on investment) for this piece of equipment.
