There is one household that is a year behind in dues, so Rod will send the standard letter.

Roads committee: Mark Achzenick, Rod, Keith, Jan, Jake, and Glen.

  1. Water:

Zone 3 is in and tests are being done to be sure it works properly. Anderson’s pressure is better, but not the desired level yet.
A leak may exist so that will be the next issue to address.

  1. Community Property/Lakes

Rick Ward’s memo regarding the wet areas was read to the Board. Mowing has been halted until those areas dry out.
Steve Scott is still trying to get permission to address lake levels by using equipment. The county says the permit process is about ¾ finished. Right now we have a variance which allows cleaning out beaver dams by hand only.

  1. Cedar Grove Compost

The June meeting had fairly good attendance. There were 2 Cedar Grove reps there, Claude Williams and Rick Hess from Puget Sound Air Quality were there, and a representative from Regan Dunn’s office was there. Concerned residents made comments, which were taped. A list of attendees’ names is available, so Terry is going to get a copy for our use. Our next step is to organize a group to go to the Puget Sound Air Quality Board meeting. We may want to invite the media to this meeting.

Rod mentioned that we might want to contact Cisco Morris, to see if he has any input.

  1. Passage Point

Rod reported that the community advisory group meeting went good. Residents who filed the lawsuit got some changes made to the plan, and they received their legal fees back. The plan has been changed to include only the first phase of 46 units, and a wooden fence will be installed on the east side of the facility.
Construction has started. The facility should be open by April, 2011. Total population should be 70 people.
YWCA now has to reinstate financing.

Next meeting: July 22th @ 7:00 PM – Terry Deschenes house
