- Pond (Lonnie & Warren): The original company to do the test has not responded to our request to begin the work. A second company, Gehrig, has submitted a bid to perform the test for $8,500. This will be a subsurface test using both core samples and ERT to determine if the lake can still hold water. The Board is to make a decision on whether or not to fund it by April 30.
- Water Tank (Warren): The forms have been set and the foundation base material is to be in place by April 30th. The dig test showed the path is clear and we await the contractor to evaluate the well pump and trench. The fire chief is targeting to have it done by end of May.
- Website (Warren): Working to get a folder structure so that finding the documents is easier.
- Ray made it known that the Bylaws were updated to allow the Board to allow up to 5 people to serve. A formal announcement (email and web posting) will be sent out asking for volunteers.

- Ray asked if we wanted to do brush removal. Group decided to forgo it this year.
- The board is asked to put a plan in place to address the erosion problem behind the Driscoll property.
- Discussion around the neighborhood responsibility of the perimeter fencing. There is concern that several large trees are uprooting the fencing. The Board will look to see what has been done in the past to address the issue.
