Town Engineer- Pat, Hank, Rich and Laura met with him 12/7/14 at the ball field. No one has heard anything yet from him. He looked at drainage, parking, basketball courts – Pat to check with Rich Williams to see if he talked to him. – We will want the town to inspect everything we do. We can get a permit but no fee.
Hank sent the letter to the town for the rental of the baseball field for the Black Dragons Rugby team renting the ball field to practice –on 12/17/14 the board approved it – but we need town named as additional insured on their insurance policy and waivers from each of the players - $40-50 per hour was fine. We start with $50 per hour.
Start a schedule for groups using the field.
Rafts –Marguerite will meet with the vendor after the holidays. Maybe we can re-deck our rafts
CSLAP Applications – Hank approved all forms.
We need to get prices for tree and vine removal. Talk to a few tree guys – start at the Odell’s house and go to undetermined point (to be decided) Then put an RFP for everyone to give us prices.
Bill Henry was recommended, Hank will talk Bill Peragine for an estimate.
Boat removals – Nick will volunteer to help remove boats – next year we will have boat tags made up. We need to buy boat tags, bracelets and car tags for 2015 – Patricia has the details. Order the same amount as last year and the same colors for all three – need all of these items to enforce illegal parking, beach access and fishing. Tag all boats & kayaks. Effective 2015 all boats on the lake need a tag. Laura will call boat owners on Friday. Garbage boats will go into a dumpster as well as pallets and planks and 2 by 4’s.

Neighborhood watch - $1600 collected for signs to date – to be put on existing poles signs
Vandalism – get graffiti remover and remove it ourselves so we do not have to file an insurance claim. Check to see if a police report was filed. What should we do to prevent vandals – install lights to stay on for 10-15 minutes – what type of video equipment should we put in?
