  1. Trailer – Dianne – said that she had found an advertisement in the Republic for a 16’ trailer for $849.00 at DB Trailer’s.

Dianne said that she would donate metal roofing material to cover the trailer.
  2. WELCOME TO FOREST LAKES-DIANNE for CONNIE See Attached list of recommendations. The list, of recommendations, was very well received. It might be possible to get a donation from some of the businesses wanting to be listed in this packet.
  3. Pine Needle Bailer – Al – did not have good news. He had found that the Forest Service in Florida was using a pine needle bailer. He found that it must be a bailer that can make 2 string bails that weigh no more than 85 pounds. The cost will be around $3,000.00.
  4. Phone Book –Jack – They are in.
  5. Roads – Jack – the report is the same as last month. The county will be working on Larson Loop and Ryan Ranch Road. 

The question had been raised as to what was happening with the right turn lanes. The question was raised when they would start. It was surveyed last year and it was thought that the bid would happen this year and it was to happen this next year. Elmer Hess said that he heard when he was at the Fire Department that that the Federal Government had released funds for safety related projects and he thought that our right turn lanes might be able to use some of those funds. 
The reason that the Preacher Canyon section has not been opened with a higher speed limit is because of a fault on the south side hill appeared and they have had one slide and are making sure the area is safe.

6. COMPACTOR/BURN AREA - FRANK & CHICK – 6 people from Forest Lakes went to Munds Part and met in the Firehouse Bay area. There was standing room only in the area. The people there will go to the Board of Supervisors and they will come back in a couple of months. Frank is still working with John Debrinski. Frank is to meet with Matt Ryan in a week. Matt received 100 e-mails from people concerned on this issue.

7. COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT – FRANK – Met for two hours with people from the States Department of Commerce, about a Town Hall, that will be June 20th. There were lots of ideas being presented. There will be another meeting April 8th in Payson. Elmer Hess presented us with an idea or proposal on the idea of a Community Center with land for activities. Mr. Hess was asked by Dianne to bring his proposal in writing to the next meeting


8. School Board – Jan – There seems to be a down feeling coming out of Phoenix on Charter School. The School board is not getting any enthusiasm from the parents. There will be three graduates from Forest Lakes. Justin Huft dripped out. 

There will be a First Transponder class starting soon. 

A member of the Fire Auxiliary will work with Al on the 4th of July Picnic.
