Letter addressing the Sandy Creek Town Board from 1/13/10 read by Cathy Goodnough.

Old Business: Purchase of Dredge from Wagoner’s Dredging Outfit.  Lonnie Crast was contacted in the fall of 2009 to look into the possibility of the association purchasing the dredge and either donating to the town to operate or lease the dredge to the Town. After numerous attempts to contact Lonnie, we learned this past week that the Town of Sandy Creek is reluctant to take on the responsibility of dredging the Channel.  I went to a Board Meeting January 13th and spoke to the members of the board.

Ralph Wagoner has contacted me several times this winter to see if the Association was still interested in the Dredge as he was looking to sell it.  We need to make a decision as to the purchase of the dredge.

We will have to ask the Town for more money to be put into the  budget, which will probably cause an increase of taxes.  Long discussion by Board members and Lonnie as to who would operate the dredge, cost of insurance, Town’s budget for Highway Department to operate dredge.  Who would lay the piping out.

New Business: Set annual meeting date, letter to membership for 2010, order labels for 2010.

Next Board Meeting will be at March 24, 2010
Place: Sandy Creek Town Hall at 5 PM.

President will entertain a motion to adjourn.

Motion made to adjourn by Pete Backus, seconded by Bonnie Reid. Any discussion, all in favor, all opposed. Motion Passed.

Meeting adjourned at 7:15 PM
