Ron reported on the resolution of a board of trustee qualification issue that had been raised at the visit with Mr. Jan Furner of the Utah Association of Special Service Districts. Ron provided a letter with statistics on residence in Pine Valley being taxed as "Primary Residences". He said he had reviewed the stat law amendment with his lawyer of Jenkins & Jensen and said it was almost impossible to determine how many people are or are not full time residents. The PVSSD discussed the 17A-2-1326 Utah State Special District Code (1, a-e). Each board member was given a copy of the code. Ron Snow presented a listing of the approximate amount of residence in Pine Valley. This showed 818 lots total. We have approximately 450 residence at this given date.
There was further discussion about a person having only have one principle place of residence and register to vote in only one place according to the Washington County Clerks office. Board members were aware of this and finally agreed that if a person was eligible and registered to vote in the district, which includes Pine Valley, they would be eligible to serve on the Pine Valley Special Service District. All board members said okay and Ryon Gardner was congratulated as a new member.
Fire Chief, Dall Winn reports:

The upcoming annual assessment letter was discussed with the following ideas presented:
Victor Christensen suggested that instead of putting all of the brush and tree limbs in dumpsters to be hauled to the landfill, they could be piled at a cleared location to be burned in wintertime. After some discussion, it was decided that the board did not want to take the responsibility or liability for this.
Vicki gave an update on the Pine Valley Website progress.
Ron asked about the "errors and omissions" liability insurance coverage. Julie passed around the policy declarations that do list "errors and omissions" as a part of the district's liability coverage.

The board discussed using a tape recording to document proceedings in meetings. It was decided that this was not advisable nor necessary except perhaps in special complicated or contentious meetings in which case, the recording can be used to summarize and prepare written minutes and after the minutes are approved by the board, the recording would be erased.
There being no further business, Lee moved and Vicki seconded a motion to adjourn. The motion carried and the meeting was adjourned at 7:05 pm.
