MINUTES OF THE MEETING –January 5, 2012

The meeting was called to order at 7:15 p.m. Present were Gordon Sylte, Gordon Stephenson, and Eva Maxfield. A quorum was established. Also present were Tim Sullivan, and Bobbie Hunsinger.

There were no additions to the agenda

Gordon Stephenson moved to accept the minutes of  the meeting for  December 1, 2011 S/P/U

Tim Sullivan reported the lake level of 8.48 with 50cfs going out.  It was discussed that without much snow, the water going out should be slowed to retain the lake level. Tim reported that he will be leaving in 12 days and Lauren Scarcello will be taking over while he is gone.

Eva Maxfield moved to pay the following bills: normal payroll;

Frontier, $24.54; Verizon Wireless, $40.47; Cd'A Press $23.40and Twin Lakes Village $300.00 S/P/U

There was a discussion about paying more on the loan for the dam if funds are available.  The board will revisit this next month after the tax distribution from Kootenai County.

Gordon Sylte read a letter from Herb Nagle pertaining to an old agreement Mr. Nagel feels the city of Rathdrum has, and a response from John Eixenberger .  The board is in agreement with the response.

The sandbar removal was discussed.  With the current water level and the possibility of keeping the water level high, there is a possibility that it will be necessary to postpone the sandbar removal.  If the area gets more precipitation, there is a possibility of lowering the lake level and removing the sandbar.  There was a discussion as to where to approach the removal and where the gravel will be placed after it is removed. 

After several trips and telephone calls Gordon Stephenson found out the permitting will be done by Department of Lands, permit should take two to three weeks.  The bid will be for 400 cubic yards and then based on an approximate  of the 1,300 yards that was removed the last time the sandbar was cleaned out, we will be able to figure approximate cost.

Tim will try to burn the pile of debris and that may give us a good place to access the lake for the removal.

Eva Maxfield moved to elect John Eixenberger Chairman S/P/U

Bobbie Hunsinger was asked to send a card of support to Father Mike Scarcello in care of Wells Fargo Bank.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:48pm

Bobbie Hunsinger reported on the Sandpoint accounting firms' action.

The accounting looked correct and several entries were made to take care of old items.  Going forward the depreciation entries will be made on a yearly basis.

The sandbar removal was discussed.  There is no way of knowing at this time if it will be possible because current water level. Gordon Stephenson has been working with Greg and a permit has been started.  Lauren Scarcello mentioned contacting Twin Lakes Improvement Association, Don Ellis, they have been trying to get a grant to dredge the channel and may have contacts of companies that have suction equipment.

Lauren Scarcello, reported he has the aluminum for the cover and will try to get it done time permitting.

John reported that he did snow measuring at  Ragged Ridge and at that time  snow measure was 38 - 40 inches.  John reported that the ground was frozen and would like to bring the lake down to 8 feet in case we get warm temperatures that could cause quick run-off.  The snow is very wet and heavy with about 30 to 40 percent water.  The board feels this should be monitored in the coming weeks.

There was a short discussion as to what might have caused the computer readouts to fluctuate.  There were no apparent reasons, and it appears to have worked itself out.

OLD BUSINESS -

Cover for the pump - It has not been completed and Tim will check with Lauren Scarcello to see if we should get someone else (Lauren is very very busy and doesn't seem to be able to complete the cover) We have paid for the material, but not the labor.

There has been a problem with the pump switching off when it is cold out.  Tim will talk  to Empire Electric and get them to trouble shoot it and get recommendation on the best way to keep it from happening again.  It was discussed that we need the cover, maybe a strip heater to keep it warmer and to try caulking the tubes.

Gordon Stephenson reported that he had checked with Peck & Peck on the price to use a vacuum to remove the gravel bar in the lake and that it was twice the price.

NEW BUSINESS -

John Eixenberger reported that he did snow measurements and could only do one side.  Snow drifts were too deep to get to the other site.

There are trees in the creek and they are causing problems as we have high water.  There is nothing to be done at this time.  A crew needs to go through the creek bed and remove debris when the water is down. Areas we know where the flow of the creek is being affected are- a tree in the water at Sturgeon Road, and trees growing in the creed bed before Church Street.  We will put in the August or September agenda a note to hire a crew to get the creek cleaned up.
