Bob T. motioned to delegate Doug and Greg to make a decision on which insurance company the ELRA will use to cover the general liability. It was seconded by George. All of the Board was in favor.

Olomana Heights/Goodfellows Greg informed the Board that he and Bob B. had a meeting with the developer and engineer about the runoff in the lake which were documented by Bob B. and Cindy. The efforts they are making is exceeding the grading requirements that were set for them and they are looking at doing even more, such as creating a grass filtration system. Muddy water was noted coming from the bike trails. Greg stated that the ELRA and Olomana Heights will put pressure for a fence to be put in place to prevent access by dirt bikers.
