Fred Melhman addressed the membership on behalf of the Budget Committee. The electric for February was $9,000. Expenses totaled $227,000.00 at the end of March. The 2008-2009 budget totals $215,100.00. We need to find ways to cut back. Pat Detrick added that we need to cut back 4.5%. It was suggested that an assessment be added for those who stay in the park. Brenda stated that we cannot assess for living in the park because we are not zoned as residential so no one should be living here. Fred stated we may want to look into individual electric meters for each campsite. Fred stated that pumps for the sewer are running when not used. Rex King spoke with Wayne Staulls and is looking into shutting down the pumps during off hours. After allowing members to review the proposed budget, Pat Detrick made a motion to accept the budget as proposed, 2nd by Sandy Nagy. Vote = 58 yes, 0 no, unanimous.

Trustees also want to be able to spend time with their families camping. If you see anything that needs to be done, help out.
If anyone has any suggestions, write them down and slip them under the door. One suggestion received was to have better access to ice. Looking into driving through park during the evening with a golf cart loaded with ice for sale.
Main projects for the near future…Pool bldg. acid tank, electric upgrade, and roads. Ron suggested everyone donate a flat of flowers for Mother’s day and plant them.
