Treasure’s Report;  Louise said she filed a statement of information on the 17th. We have $32,236 in our Savings Account (after moving $17,000 from the Current Year Operating Funds – Checking account). The $32K includes our $5000 emergency reserve.  We currently have $23,000 in the Checking Account for Fiscal year 2013-2014 Operating Expenses.  To date, 74 members have paid.  We also moved the $1,120 main gate allocation fund to the Road Maintenance Reserve fund (Saving Account).  The Board approved the moving of remaining operating expenses to the Savings Account (Our Reserve Funds) in order to maintain our Tax Exempt status; as 90% of our funds must be for the Stated Purpose as declared in the Articles of Incorporation. “Aluffo Rd” or Main Road Fund, includes the launch ramp as it is technically the end of Aluffo Rd.

Treasure’s report was approved by the board with no objections.

Road Mainenance/Point Don reported we need a short term fix on the roads and to begin preparing in 2-3 years for major work. We discussed the 5mph bouys and have been unable to contact lake authorities over the matter.
Motion was made to spend up to $700.00 on 5mph buoys to be placed near the launch ramp. Motion passed unanimously.

DOCKS;
Jesse indicated that with the water level where it is that there was no room to put any more docks. The people owning the docks at the point need to decide spacing issues. When the docks are NOT in the water, we have jurisdiction over them.
Jesse moved we approve all current 11 docks at the point for 2013-2014 and the motion passed unanimously
