Pledge of Allegiance was said at 5:05 PM, and the meeting was called to order at 5:07 PM by Fred Pendleton, Chairman.
The meeting followed the previously posted agenda.
1 Approval of the Minutes: No minutes were read. Deferred until the next meeting.
2- Review of the Pine Valley Existing Facilities Report:
Law Enforcement: Talk ensued about a full-time police officer for Pine Valley. It would take about $40,000.00 a year. Mike asked about the possibility of having just a seasonal officer assigned to us, but John said that they would have to hire that officer full-time and then use him/her elsewhere throughout the year. Buzz remarked that because most of the homes in Pine Valley were second homes, there should be lots of tax money received from Pine Valley homes, which could possibly go towards the police officer's salary, but John countered back that all the people in the rural areas totaled together would only equal the amount of people currently living in Santa Clara, so it would be hard to justify a full-time officer up here. Ryon added that hiring an off-duty officer to police Pine Valley during peak holiday weekends wouldn't work either because most officers don't have those weekends off, as they are all assigned to work elsewhere on holiday weekends. The town of Enterprise has hired a full-time police officer.
Post Office: All is well and doing great.
Waste Disposal: The garbage is not picked up often enough during the summer months and over the time during Memorial Day, the garbage wasn't picked up for over 1 1/2 weeks. The P.V. Special Service District is calling to see if an extra oversized dumpster could be added. During that busy Memorial Day time period, it ended up taking 27 truckloads to finally empty our dumpster area.
3- Guidelines for Existing Facilities Report: John Willie was not present to give his update.
4- Plan Elements Data Requirements - Recreation Activities: Surveys are still coming in, so this item will also be deferred until the next meeting.
5- Community Survey: 166 surveys have been turned in and tabulated, plus 25 more were just given to Fred. In order to meet the schedule, Fred will just wait for more until Monday, at which time he will compile a report to get to John Willie and the PVSSD before their next meeting. Approx. 550 surveys were sent out, about 1/3 have been returned. Fred discussed the graphs he made, which were based on #9 and #26 of the survey.
Bev suggested that a "comments" line be added under each graph for explanation purposes. Mike suggested picking out which issues might pertain only to full-timers. The results would be skewed for items like snow removal, buses, etc. Fred agreed and said that some of the way questions were answered reflected that.
Bob wanted to know who was covering Fred's printing costs. Fred is himself. Bob wants the County to reimburse Fred.
The 2nd page of the survey results showed a big concern on OHV use. Results were pretty evenly based between those who are not here full time and those who are. Weekenders were just as upset by the problem.
Agriculture use would be exempt by law in the OHV issue.
On the 3rd page of the survey the biggest concern was speeding. Seems to be mostly one person who is a teen of a fuiltime resident.
6- Comments, non agenda items None
6:50 Bob motioned to close the meeting, Trinilee seconded, all were in favor.
