President’s Report (Sally Elliman)

Secretary’s Report 

Dick stated that he would work with the new secretary during the transition period, and that he would continue to work with the Board during the coming year, especially with respect to the updating of the By Laws. 


Treasurer’s Report (Jim Fergus) 

Jim proposed that the Board look at establishing restricted accounts for some of our most important future capital projects.


Water Commissioner 

Scott Burkhart stated that he foresees that the State Inspector will be able to come to Blakely this summer to test and certify all of the currently installed CCC devices. 


Property Manager (Barbara Sullivan) 

Barbara had nothing new to report. 


Roads (Barbara Sullivan) 

A member reported to Barbara that the rocks that have been placed along the road adjacent to the runway may present a hazard to vehicles, especially to two wheeled ones.  Removing the rocks,  however, leads to another possible hazard.  Without the rocks, riders leaving the road kick up gravel onto the road.  Two riders have been witnessed as having lost control of their motorbikes when they  slipped on the gravel that was on the road.   In all three cases, the riders were thrown from their vehicles.

A motion was made to keep the rocks in place until a better alternative for keeping vehicles on the road  could be found.  The motion was seconded and passed unanimously. 


Fire and Waste (Bob Breidenthal) 

Bob is thinking about holding a wildfire training session this summer.  He will also inspect the emergency fireboxes that are located at various places on the upper island. 


BCF Liaison 

No report at this time. 


Facilities Manager (Jim Davis)
