Dall brought up that he had attended a County Commissioner Meeting and we had been approved for funding on our Gate Project.

Allen  gave us a copy of a report he received after seeking counsel from the County Commissioners for the Pine Valley Special Service District on fire assessments, rental units and minimum lot size for horses.  These are issues we have had in the last few months and the County has been helpful to our Community.
