 Old and New Business:

  • ·         Turkey Trot– will use an online sign up, try to increase size of the race to include folks outside of the community,  packet pick up night before, packets will include t-shirt.  Will need to have a “parade permit” for this event.  Form is online. 

 Motion to enter contract with T3 and make this a bigger event.

  • ·         Fence Gate-Jocelyn has a current bid.  We need to make sure it does not obstruct the view in any way.  Fire marshal requires the gates be unlocked on the perimeter-guards need to check this first thing at start of the day.  Is this on the standard procedure checklist? 
  • ·         Boat and Trailer Storage Policy:  this is an off-season boat storage only policy.  No boats are to be stored here in the summer.  Kurt will have the boats that have not paid and should not be here.

 Motion to approve a policy not to have boats parking at the pool.
