c. Meeting Minutes for June 2, 2010 were reviewed. Dall motioned to approve the minutes as written. Jeff seconded the motion. All were in favor.

d. Pine Valley Building Permits Reviewed:  N/A 

e. Board Member Reports:

Mary Esther: Will post a notice regarding usage of the fire department buildings. * Mary Esther also sent a letter to the County regarding LaMar Terry’s road grievance. * Beverly gave a letter to Mary Esther regarding Ed Corpe and his request to be exempted from a 2nd annual fee even though he has two separate properties. Mary Esther will address the letter and draft one back to Mr. Corpe. * Mary Esther said on behalf of the Board how very much we appreciate the contributions from the Edith Green Foundation.

John: John said how much we all appreciated the cattlemen coming to the previous meeting about the cattle loose in the Valley. Mary Esther suggested placing a note in the annual fee letter telling the property owners that they need to keep up their fences if they are next to Forestry property. Fence checkers should be on horseback, not ATVs to help protect the land. Fermin suggested possibly getting a team to fix the fencing.

Jeff: Has not heard anything regarding the K-railing on Deadman’s Curve. He will call to check on it.

Dall: Propane bill seems very excessive for the new addition. Dall will call Gilbert to see about additional weather stripping or what else could be done to lower those bills.

f. Fire Chief – (see report).

g. Treasurer Report – George (see report).  * George received recall notices on two of our Ford trucks.  We need to fill out paperwork for class action suits – the Board asked George to use his discretion on whether or not it is worth it to fill those out. The problem on the recall has been corrected already. * Regarding the book that was sent to the PVSSD, George did send his letter telling them AGAIN that we did not order the book, plus he got the Department of Consumer Affairs involved. The publishers have since sent postage for us to return the book.
