Communication received by the Board:
Clayton Jr. explained that a donation of $20,000.00 was received to go for security. Per Mar security was hired to help monitor incoming traffic.Gates will be installed at Caron Drive and Buena Vista about 6 times during the summer to prevent outside atv’s and boats from coming in.
Maggie Adams asked about guests coming in. The security will have a list of lot owner’s names and guest will just have to say who they are coming to see.
John Banzhaf was concerned that it would be a gated community. This is too expensive of a cost but something needed to be done to help with security.
Tom Dvorsky asked if the cost of the donation will cover the expense of the security personal, the donation will cover for a least two years.
Kathy Kauffman spoke about the children that are too young to be riding atv/golf carts and the parents are responsible if they get in an accident. Problems are starting already on Wesley Drive and when she called Poweshiek Sheriff Office did not get a positive response. Lot owners need to contact Poweshiek County Board of Supervisors when no cooperation is received from the Sheriff’s office.
Elizabeth Allison stated that she had never received $3,000.00 for work on Leisure Park. So she can not give back something she never had.
Duane Popenhagen asked if Andy’s had been treated for algae, this has not been done and the cost of treating Bozo will be checked into.
Rose Mattison was going to ask about the gates, but her questions had been answered though out the meeting. She did inquire if additional security could be hired to help Mark Baugh out. This will be checked into.
