The meeting was called to order by Marc Droppert at 8:35 AM

Water Usage Proposal Review:
Several constructive comments were received and several concerns were raised after review of the draft Water Usage Proposal. With one ERU per residential lot and therefore the 250 gallon per day (monthly average) maximum per residential connection, the challenge is what to do in the event of recurring excess use. Considerations regarding alternatives for enforcement in the case of recurring excess use were discussed as well as whether a policy for excess use penalties could be developed for submission to the community after the monitoring period was concluded. Marc will re-draft the Water Usage Proposal and re-circulate it again for board consensus and preparation for submission to the community at the Annual Meeting.

Struck Property Status: The building permit issued by San Juan County expires July 19, 2005. BIMC assessments are current. Electric power is not connected. Marc will write a letter to the owner(s) to inquire what they intend to do and what the timeline for completion of construction is.

Managersí contract discussion: The new contract proposal was reviewed and comments and questions were addressed. A motion was made by John Madden, seconded by Ben Dole, to present the contract to Jim and Margo for their review and consideration. The motion was carried unanimously (Cindy Zech left the conference call prior to this vote). Marc said he and John Madden planned to do an annual performance review prior to the Annual Meeting.

The meeting was adjourned at 9:25 AM
