Website/Membership: Virgilee reported current membership at 604. Jeannie Van Lew is working on a full year calendar for the website so all events at the library, fire department, school board, etc., will be available. Newsletter has been mailed and everyone should have a copy in their mail box.
Roads: Jack Greenleaf had nothing new to report on the roads in the subdivision. Surveying is being done for the right-hand turn lanes.
School Board: Vi Hess reported for Jan Walls. Bill Morehead is ready to start driving the school bus as soon as his training is completed. We currently have 16 children going to school in Heber. Still looking at a charter school in Blue Ridge for K-8 to eliminate the 80 mile daily ride. The state will pick up the cost for the charter school.
Discussion was held regarding the fencing around the pond near the burn pit and parking access. This is designed to keep vehicle traffic from the pond area and protect the surrounding ground cover. Vehicles will still be able to use the existing forest service roads but only foot traffic will be
allowed at the pond. Ralph Springer moved that FLOA spend the $3200 needed to complete this project, Bill Henry seconded the motion. Motion passed.
