General Business: Meeting called to order by Mary Esther. Larry led the prayer and Bob led the Pledge of Allegiance. The June 3rd minutes were motioned to accept by Mary Esther, seconded by Bob, and all in favor. Kelly Poling was introduced to fill the secretary’s position previously held by Rachel Carignan.
Building Permits: No new permits, anticipating a couple coming. Rick was presented with a $2500 impact fee payment from a resident in Grass Valley as directed by the county. Rick gave her a receipt which was required by the county for build continuation. Fire hydrant was not put in but was told they are required to put in a 1,000-gallon fire suppression tank. Questions arose regarding which areas are covered under our district, and we may need to add an amendment to include Grass Valley. Allen suggested we get clarification from the county attorney whether we are servicing Grass Valley. Rick provided the board with the 2018 approved fee schedule. Emily Nielsen offered to share a document with the board indicating plans for the Gathering Place at Grassy Flats project. Rick agreed to discuss the matter with the county building department to be charging consistently all areas covered by PVSSD.
Board Member Reports: Larry reported on the status of the new well application progress with the county water district. The new well location needed to be relocated as it was too close to a current septic system and needs to be 250 feet away. Easement needs to be approved by the Forest Service and need to acquire a permit to drill. Larry will continue to update the board on progress.
PV roads will be chip and sealed soon.
Fire Chief Report: Report proxied by Rick in Steve’s absence. Ten call outs reported from June 5 to July 1. Three of which were in Central, and the remainder in PV. Three were in the campground and 1 was on Mill Canyon Trail (See Incident Report July 1, 2020).
Bill for $1,719 for Robert Hardy to become a second Advance EMT.
Fire trucks will participate in PV July 4th parade. Flags will be put out July 2nd. Allen will find volunteers for the July 4th flag ceremony.
Treasurer Report: Rick presented the PVSSD Profit and Loss June 2020, P & L Budget vs. Actual Jan-Dec 2020, Prev Year Comparison June 30, 2020, and Impact Fee Revenue Reports FY End Dec 31, 2020 (see Doc. Pgs 1-7).
Consider looking for cement bids for the fire station to improve ease of maintenance through the winter months. Financials motioned to accept by Bob, 2nd by Larry, all in favor.
Jill and Melissa Nielsen contracted to provide janitorial services for the PV fire station and post office. Have already been billed for janitorial services twice in June.
Rick has sent out impact fee late notices. Approximately a total of $5,500 outstanding.

Absent Board Members: Herman Nordbruch
Attending Guests: Emily Neilson, Mary Esther Putnam, Kelly Poling
General Business: Meeting called to order by Larry. The June 3rd minutes were motioned to accept by Bob, seconded by Frank, and all approved.
Treasurer Report: Rick presented the PVLD Profit and Loss June 2020, P & L Detail Jan-June 2020, P & L Budget vs. Actual Jan-Dec 2020, Balance Sheet Prev Year Comparison June 30, 2020, Edith Green Fund P & L June 2020, E. G. Fund Bal Sheet Prev Year Comparison June 30, 2020 (see Doc. Pgs 1-6). Financials did not include interest. Motion to accept financials by Bob, seconded by Allen, and all in favor.
Traffic Report: Rick presented data reports from 4 speed trackers on Main St. from 10/01/2019 thru 05/31/2020 (see Doc. Pgs 1-4). All agreed they were helping to slow down drivers, but still indicated approximately 55% are speeding. Suggested that it may be beneficial to share this data with the Sheriff. Although, the board feels data validates the decision not to contract additional law enforcement services.
Citizen Concerns: Emily Nielsen updated the board on the status of the recreational development on the east side of PV. Issue will likely be on the county’s agenda for September, but not July. She has received over 595 signatures or 92% opposition indicated on questionnaires from full-time residents. She is planning to set a meeting with the planning commission and suggested it may be beneficial to have a board member attend.
The next scheduled PVLAD meeting will be August 5, 2020.
PVLAD Board Meeting adjourned by Bob, seconded by Allen, all in favor.
