Burnpit: Frank Astemborski reported the burn pit opened about a month ago and was filled within three weeks. The fire department has closed the pit due to extreme fire conditions until such time as they are able to burn the pit. We have a total income of $1182.85, checking account balance is $1707.64, petty cash $18.90, and the total number of loads dumped was 292. This is an estimate as the contractors using dump trucks are putting in the equivalent of two to three loads.

Question was raised as to where pine needles and slash could be dumped while the pit was closed; the answer is no where and please do not dump in the forest.

A member of the audience said we could dump at the new burning center in Heber. They will also take stumps and logs.

ON A MOTION DULY MADE BY Jane Weathersby and seconded by Jack Cartwright, the burn pit report was accepted.

Website: In Virgilee’s absence, Frank gave the report on the website. There is now a new page from the sheriff and articles from the fire department. Weather and road conditions are not currently being posted due to the nice weather.

The newsletter was mailed and if anyone has not received their copy they should contact Virgilee.

We currently have 568 members with 16 business advertisements paid for.

Community roads: Jack Greenleaf reported there was nothing new to report except that Dan Garcia, Matt Ryan, and Mike Anderson, were present to speak after the meeting and answer any questions that the audience might have regarding the roads and community in general.

Clean-up/fix-up: Jane reported that there were new areas that the Clean-up/Fix-up Committee would be looking at for awards. These would include commercial, new corners, people who live here year around. Encourages everyone to clean up their lots. Idea can will be at pancake breakfast for drop off of ideas and to pick up nomination forms. Question was raised about lots that have never been cleaned and what the Home Owners’ Association might do to get these places cleaned. FLOA has no authority but will continue to send notices to owners who do not clean up their property as far as natural matter is concerned. Suggestion that commercial contractors might be givens names and lot numbers for them to contact owners about having their property cleaned.

New business: Frank has dust signs if anyone wants them. Suggestion was presented about forming a block watch in conjunction with the sheriff’s office. Diane Mitchell proposed a committee be developed to work with sheriff. Discussion was held on the best way to accomplish this.

Reminder of Memorial Day Breakfast on Saturday, May 27, at fire department. This is a community fundraiser and everyone is encouraged to attend.

Don Short is providing his water truck to be used to water down the main roads over the Memorial Day weekend. FLOA will pay for the water and Lou Shemek will drive the truck.

Open Forum: Question was raised about start time of meeting. Change was due to board members working during summer. We may go back to old start time in the fall or leave it at 2:00 p.m. depending on how it works this summer.

There being no further business, and

ON A MOTION DULY MADE By Edna McKnight and seconded by Jack Greenleaf, the meeting was adjourned at 2:37 p.m.
