President's Update:  Linda Redmon contacted Sharon about starting a dog petition.  Some of the dogs in Linda’s neighborhood bark incessantly and are put in unsubstantial fencing.  Sharon told her that it is necessary for her and other concerned neighbors to talk to the offending parties.  Sharon noted there had been complaints about people trying to contact the sheriff’s office for help.

Rollins Park:  Janet reported that the work in Rollins Park will be conducted by the commercially-licensed electrician and LMPOA’s gardener Jim Guerreri.  The permit to do the work cost less than anticipated.  Also, the work to put the Park back in order was less than the predicted cost.  At this time the work is 95% completed.  Two new outlets have been installed and camouflaged. Two water leaks have been repaired.  The backflow meter cracked and leaked.  The cost to repair was $300, most of which was labor.  The insurance on the Park has been paid for a year.

A discussion was held regarding the flag pole. LMPOA does not have a ladder that will reach the top.  Bob MacDonald had called Sharon to comment on the flag pole.  He recommended calling APS.  Chris mentioned talking to the Boy Scouts.

Ron mentioned that the fountain needs help. Janet stated that all or part of the interior may have to be replaced.  She has spoken to Chris Shafer, son of the donors Verna and Frank Shafer, and he has told her that he will repair it.

New Business:  Janet stated that Beaver Creek Transit (BCT) will be applying to ADOT for a smaller, more cost effective vehicle.  BCT is asking LMPOA to agree to provide $3,000 as a match for the new van.  She stated that most of the money in the CD had come from a developer, who wished for the money to be used for transportation. A discussion was held.  Ron moved and Karin seconded that LMPOA provide $3,000 if the ADOT grant is awarded.  Motion carried.

There being no further business the meeting was adjourned at 6:23PM.
