The Board requested that the Secretary, from time to time, report on the status of 2003 Grant Expenditures.

Ron said there had been no building plans to view and consider this month.

Ron discussed a proposal for having some standing assignments for each board member to monitor in the Pine Valley Service District's ongoing programs and work items. Ron said he thought it was a good idea to have someone assigned to keep track of some of these items and report to the board each month. Board members discussed possible assignments and it was agreed that they could be modified from time to time when needed. The proposed assignments presented were:

Ron Snow, Chairman

Lee Carlile

Vicki Frei

Ryon Gardner

Victor Christensen

Dall Winn

Julie Cropper

Victor made a motion to accept these assignments which was seconded by Lee and carried.

Board members had no issues at this time to be discussed.

Fire Chief, Dall Winn reported on the following items:

A member of the audience asked if there had been any fires. Dall said that there were usually several Wildland Fires each year.

Steve discussed a broken fire hydrant on Sage Road and the need to install another one as has been planned. He will contact the Pine Valley Irrigation Company and get this work going. The Pine Valley Irrigation Company may be requested to get a different contractor.

Fred Pendelton, representing the Pine Valley Historical Committee mentioned that he had received 91 of the survey questionnaires back so far. This is 20% of what was sent out and is a good response this early. Fred will summarize the ATV question data and forward that to Ron and Victor. The board discussed the need to prepare an ATV, OHV, (Off Highway Vehicle) Pine Valley Ordinance proposal and present it to the Washington County Commission. We also need to include other forms of motorized recreational travel including snowmobiles. Ron said we will then schedule a meeting to get public input on the matter.

Steve Robinson reported that the Washington County Planning and Zoning work on Sexually Oriented Business locations was proceeding. Three potential sites have been identified and will go forward to a public hearing. None of them are in Pine Valley.

Ron mentioned the new concrete barricades on the entry highway. We are glad to have them and he has asked that the Washington County Road Deptartment extend the ends in the future.

There being no further business, Lee moved to adjourn the meeting. The motion was seconded by Victor and carried. The meeting adjourned at 6:40 pm.
