Call to Order.
The meeting began at 7.05 pm.
Minutes of Prior Meeting
The draft minutes of the prior Board meeting were presented by the Secretary for approval. On motion from the
Vice-president, duly seconded, these were approved as amended by the Vice-President.
Balance in savings is now $50,975.93. Checking stands at $77.25. Interest income for the year stands at
281.81. Tracy and Herman are now caught up. The Glogowsky property is empty at present. Sanders has
made to date 3 payments. The Treasurer moved to institute foreclosure proceedings on Ansari (111,) Brightbill
(117) and Suljak (21, 296, 297.) Motion was seconded and carried unanimously. An outstanding bill from Powell
and Murphy was sanctioned for immediate payment, by unanimous vote.
The assessment request has to date yielded 87 affirmatives, with 49 noes. Since 75% of lots have not
responded in the affirmative, it appears the assessment can not go forward.
Several owners actually sent checks with their assessment request forms. The question was raised whether
these funds should be returned. General assent was that those owners should be asked if their check should be
credited for next year’s dues.
Road Fund Set-aside
The secretary moved to set aside $5,000 out of future received dues, into an Emergency Road Fund. This
should be repeated for next year, with $500 from subsequent years to be added to the fund, should the
Emergency fund not be accessed in the interim. Motion carried on second.
The secretary requested a mandate to investigate the cost of rebuilding/grading of both pieces of Antero Drive in
response to Mr. Willard’s letter, as well as the corner of Rogers Drive opposite the property of Deputy Fijkes. Mr.
Evans stated that the area would need to be surveyed, stakes and levels to be set, then bids could be
entertained on a “level playing field” basis. The president moved to permit Mr. Evans, with his equipment, to
obtain sufficient rough fill to permit winter operation on the stated areas, for a sum not to exceed $10,000. On
second, the vote was 4 in favor, with one abstention.
Communications from Mr. Wagner have expressed gratitude to the Ranch members, and a desire to retain 100-
200 head of heifers and yearlings on the Ranch over the winter, at a fee of $7.50/mo. The president moved to
allow, conditions permitting, which would be a matter of constant contact with Mr. Wagner, up to 200 head to
graze on the south side of the Ranch only, provided he provide and maintain water for the animals.
The president suggested an alternate plan, for fencing off Salt ranch Trail, N to the Ranch boundary. Two
owners would be affected, and their permission to erect the fence would be sought. The scheme would involve
fencing between lots 173/174, and placing a cattle guared on Salt Ranch Trail when the ground thaws in the
spring. The secretary moved to permit the president to prepare a feasibility study to the is effect, and obtain
estimates. On second, this was carried unanimously.
Annual Meeting Date
This matter was deferred by consensus, until the next meeting.
The meeting was adjourned at 9.00 p.m.
