ON A MOTION DULY MADE BY Ralph Springer and seconded by Jane Weathersby, the minutes were accepted as amended.

There was no treasurer's report. Frank has been working on getting the books up to date and will turn over to Chick.

Burn pit:      Loads have dropped off because of the weather and the pit has been closed for the year. Final balances are down over previous years. Checking account is $2498.89. Will hold back about $1400 because pit is partially filled and couldn't be burned because of snow and will have to be burned in early spring.

Frank has spoken with Bryce Johnson, the potential buyer of the property. Mr. Johnson expects the sale to close by December and expects to continue the operation the same as we had with Mr. Wheeler. Mr. Johnson will be giving us a written agreement prior to opening in spring.

Web site: Virgilee reported everything is working fine. A request was made to post the requirements for burn permits on the web site.

Membership is up to 585.

Frank reported there has been over 7000 hits since the inception of the web site.

Roads: Jack Greenleaf reported on requests for additional "No Left Turn" signs to be placed on opposite sides of road. We will be getting these and if they don't work the county will look into cutting rubber strips in the no passing lane. Spoke with Tom Foster regarding right turn lanes and he indicated he had sent plans to the highway department. The highway department will cover half of the cost if the county will cover the other half. Jack spoke with Dan Garcia about top fill for Larson Loop and hopes to get this taken care of this year.

Discussion was held regarding culverts that have been removed from driveways and dumped on properties. Frank said he was told culvert belongs to property owner and the owner is responsible for disposal.

Community Coordinating Committee: Ralph Springer presented amendments to the board regarding tax exempt status of FLOA. To avoid having to create another non-profit corporation, it was suggested by the CPA that Frank has been working with, that the committee become an integral part of FLOA. Ralph read an Addendum to Article VI, articles one through eight and explained it to the board. Discussion was held regarding the Addendum, and,

ON A MOTION DULY MADE BY Ralph Springer and seconded by Edna McKnight, the Addendum was accepted.

Also approved by the board were motions made by Ralph Springer and seconded by Edna MaKnight regarding number and slate of the Community Coordinating Committee, the Strategic Plan developed by the Committee and submitted by the Schaider Consulting Services, Inc. covering the order in which the Committee shall conduct business on behalf of FLOA.

NEW BUSINESS: Matt Ryan from Coconino County has requested that Frank attend County Parks Long Range Plan meetings in Flagstaff. He attended the first meeting and feels it would be advantageous to us to attend the monthly meetings. However, he has requested some assistance in travel expense due to the cost of gas. Frank asked if the board would support him in this matter and if we would compensate him. The plan is to expand parks and physical facilities in the parks in Coconino County. This could be very helpful to Forest Lakes in the future.

Ralph Springer moved that the board provide Frank with $0.32.5 a mile for travel expenses to attend these meetings, seconded by Jane Weathersby and approved by the board.

Frank received a thank you note from the library for our help with the Halloween party.

There being no further business, and

ON A MOTION DULY MADE BY Virgilee Scholl and seconded by Jack Greenleaf, the meeting adjourned at 3:05.
