RMC: Bill Paschall reported. Sheila Jenkins and Curtis Jeffrey are the other RMC members. This past year we crack filled all of the roads. In the near future more cracks will need to be filled; maybe 12,000 linear feet. In addition, there are some dips and soft spots on some roads. It may cost approximately $1200 per soft spot repair. We may have to reinforce some street corners….mostly right hand turns. The largest alligator cracking
spot is on the front corner of Oscar and Tres Coronas and it might cost $8,000-$12,000 to repair. If the entire corner/intersection is repaired it might cost $17,000 to $18,000. Bids would be obtained prior to any repair.

Boat Ramp: Danna Hancock reported. Amy Fraser and Abbie Shelton are the other committee members. In 2018, volunteers cleaned up the boat ramp and parking area. Two signs will be erected – no trespassing, private property – at the boat ramp. They are getting estimates for repairing the washed out area at the parking lot.

Front Entrance: In mid-March a call for volunteers to clean up area, trim plants and plant new flowers and bushes will be made. Last year volunteers gathered a few times to keep the area maintained.
Boat Ramp area – The retaining wall is cracking. Sue Bennett met with the engineer who helped design the wall as well as with two knowledgeable residents to discuss the severity of the cracking and repairing the damage. At this point it is unknown how much damage was done by the floodwaters that rose above the wall and covered the entire parking area. The water level is still a foot higher than the bottom of the wall. We will just have to monitor the cracking and hope the water recedes soon. The riverbed is unstable and could shift even more.
New Business: John Wray suggested putting a camera at the front gate and made a motion: Put in budget up to $2000 to monitor the front gate. John Martin seconded. After much discussion Nancy Lambros made a motion to amend: To raise the budget to $3,000 and to get advice and recommendations from law enforcement. Tim Skergen seconded. This amendment passed.
The original motion as amended passed with 40 votes in favor.
Meeting was adjourned at 2:25 pm
