Roads:  Jack Greenleaf reported things are about the same with the sub-division roads. He reported that a request had been received for "No Passing" signs to be placed on the opposite side of the road so that drivers might notice them better when they start to make illegal passes. Inquiry was also made about progress in putting in right turn only lanes at Merzeville and Sheep Springs.  Jack is following up and will keep the association advised.

Forest Service Land Sale:  Jack Greenleaf has not heard anything further regarding this but will continue to keep informed.  Elmer Hess will be assisting in keeping apprised of this situation.

The county is now handling the incinerator project with the view toward having it available countywide.

Ben also reported on the all day planning session the grant committee sponsored. Everyone will be receiving a report on what was achieved at the meeting.

$3000 seed money has been received from the county plus money from FLOA. All funds raised will be used for the entire community.  All progress will be published in the newsletter.

There was no Clean-up/Fix-up report.

No new business was presented.

In open forum Diane Mitchell reported on the Block Watch meetings and the progress that was being made. All information can be found on the website.  Also, notices will be placed on the bulletin board.

Ben Froehlich asked about the mess on Larson Loop and what is being done.  Jack Greenleaf reported he had been in contact with the county and had been told that it would be taken care of.  He will follow up with the county, again, and will report back to Frank.

Question was raised about the charge for dumping at the burn pit.  Frank said he was projecting a $1.00 increase in the next year but will try to keep costs at a minimum.  Discussion was held regarding burning, cost to the community, what is being dumped illegally, by whom, and what should and can be done.

There being no further business, and
