III PUBLIC COMMENTS
IV APPROVAL OF MEETING MINUTES
Mike motioned to approve the meeting minutes from the November 14, 2016 regular meeting and Art seconded. All were in favor and the minutes were approved.
- Sidney gave an Administrator report:
Sidney recently distributed District files via email to the Board regarding the history of correspondence with Vail Memorial Park and passed out copies for Board member binders to keep on hand for reference if needed in the future.
A 2015 Assessed Value by Area chart was distributed to Board members. The chart itemizes an updated listing of tax distribution dollar amounts and percentages as it relates to Minturn, Vail and parts of Eagle-Vail.
Matt Mire was not in attendance; however, Sidney reported that Matt has advised us to the process of amending the Bylaws to exclude the 4 year “cooling off” period (term limitation) for appointed board members. It simply requires an amendment and public hearing process. Mike said he would like to address this item while Dick commented that we do not have an overwhelming amount of people who desire to serve on the Board of Directors for the Cemetery District. Sidney will add this process to the agenda during the winter of 2017.
- Ray gave a Property Management report:
Snow removal has been steady and heavy. The plowing kinks have been worked out and we have been successfully keeping it clear in case we have a winter burial. Ray has seen several inquiries for burial spaces and cremains interments this winter.
