Lake Recreation: Bill Smith Board agreed that a payment of $100 be made to Bill Smith for reimbursement of out of pocket expense from tree removal project. The contractor for the tree removal project authorized at the March Board meeting cut eight trees. He did not complete work as originally agreed that was to have included stacking trees. Apparently, someone other than a Board member told the contractor to halt his work without moving the downed trunks. When questioned by Bill Smith, the contractor would not agree to return and stack the trunks without additional payment.

New Business Next Board meeting scheduled for May 13th

New member, Julie Partinger attended and was welcomed. She graciously offered to help with Association activities as she is able. Member Billy Jones, City Council Member, mentioned that City individual permits are needed for yard sales as stated in the latest issue of Normans News. This, however, is not a new requirement. While the City has no penalty for occasional yard sales, the intent of the legislation is to discourage homeowners in the City from conducting regular or weekly sales as a business practice. He pointed out a further inaccuracy in newsletter that indicated that helium balloons are not prohibited. There is no such prohibition. Billy would like to have the Board consider alternatives for boat ramp access that might include access from the dam end of the lake. Adjourn at 8:45
