Skip made a motion to accept the minutes of the regular August meeting as written. The motion was seconded, all so voted and the motion carried.
3. Public input:
4. New Business:
A. The Rec. Commission will walk the SHRP trail and discuss fitness stations along the trail and the possibility of a bocce court. If there is time, the Roy Marsh Trail will also be walked to assess its condition. The tentative date for the site visit is November 2, at 9:00 am.
B. Mike made a motion to match a $500.00 offer from Bill Butler on a new liner for the ice rink. The motion was seconded, all so voted and the motion carried. Bill will be invited to the November 21 meeting to discuss and finalize the setting up of the rink. Dave will contact him.
C. There is a large pile of brush and debris (burn pile?) on the Knee Deep trail in front of the Donahue residence making the trail impassable without trespassing. Karin will draft a letter for Dave to sign and send to the Donahue’s.
D. White’s Beach plans for 2014 were discussed. Mike noted that the power pole that is very near the road is owned by Fairpoint, not VEC. He has been unable to contact Fairpoint about the cost of moving the pole.
E. One soccer shelter has been built and it still needs a roof. Carol made a motion to pay Greg Smith Contracting $300.00 for the work done on the shelter and to install the roof. The motion was seconded, all so voted and the motion carried. Also, Ben and Jerry’s has donated $1000.00 to help pay for a 2nd shelter. The design needs to be finalized as it may be different than the first one.
F. Mike discussed the ski club at Folsom. The school will take over the 5-8 students and the K-4 students will form a separate club. Mike will get more information and the Commission will discuss scholarship opportunities when more information is received. Perhaps the head of the ski club can report to the Commission at the next meeting.
Mike made a motion to adjourn at 8:20 pm. The motion was seconded, all so voted and the motion carried.
