Sam’s wife is ill and Sam was with her in the valley. Frank reported that there was a need to make a few adjustments and that he would be getting the contract next week.
7. ROADS – Jack
There will be no work on the roads this year as the County is having a Budget crunch. They possibly will be clearing right-of-ways.
8. MEET YOUR CANDIDATES
Frank asked the audience if they would like to have an evening when they could meet their candidates for the Fire and Water Boards. They overwhelmingly said yes. The Meet Your Candidate Meeting will be SEPTEMBER 28TH.
9. LAND SWAP LETTER FROM USDA FOREST SERVICE
Frank received a letter stating that there was no land swapping now, and the swap, if there ever is one, the land must be of equal value. Wayne stated that if a swap is to take place they must notify us, and an impact statement for the Fire, Water, School boards must be presented. Elmer spoke to the Townsen Act where FLOA, Fire, School, Water, and County must be notified if the Forest Service wants to try and square up our subdivision. This would take 4-6 years and must go to Congress to get the OK.
10. BLOCK WATCH – Diane Mitchell
Frank reported that Diane had been attendance to several of the Block Watch Yearly Meetings.
11. SCHOOL BOARD
Jan reported that we have 14 students that we will be transporting as well as 4 children that are here because of the fire. They are trying to get Winslow to accept our section of Blue Ridge. If this were to happen then the School Board would dissolve this district
Jan stated that so far they had made a profit o $15,000 from their Tee Shirts sales. Carol Short has the “God” shirts at her home and you can get them there or at the store. Jan reminded everyone that we would need baked goods for the Bake Sale at the Labor Day Breakfast.
13. NEXT MEETING IS SEPTEMBER 14TH
Frank stated that because of the Town Hall the regular FLOA monthly meeting would be September 14th at 1:30 because of a Thank you Dinner that is being held in Heber that evening.
- Someone asked about the petitions that were signed protesting another RV Park. Frank stated that we still had the petitions and that the owners had withdrawn their petition to build the RV Park.
- Chick stated that she had talked with Pete about the dog problem. Pete had stated that the county would be here once a month looking for any unrestrained pets. That is any dog that is not tied or fenced. The county can come on to your property to pick up an unrestrained dog, but most likely will not enter your property unless there is a problem.
Dianne moved and Chick seconded that the meeting be adjourned. The meeting was adjourned at 3:07.
