1st Ecology Meeting Tonight May 8 2013

The meeting is tonight at 6:30 in the GVM Office lower level. Here is the agenda Judd sent out.

1)      Budget

a)      $1,200 for the balance of this year, to June.

b)      $2,500 beginning in July.

2)      Mountain Pine Beetle Spraying

a)      Timberline has begun spraying, done my trees

b)      Spraying for the association will be the same as last year, except nothing on the Porter Trail since all trees are burned, 165 trees @ $11 = $1815.

c)      REA’s removal of hazardous trees in GVM – Linda Bell called Steve Murrow Manager of Operations, 282-6440, and asked him to consider not cutting in areas where residents are paying to have their trees sprayed against the beetle, at least when the beetles are actively searching out new homes. Do we need to do any follow up actions?

3)      Trails

a)      Routine maintenance

b)      New signs on trail network to reduce confusion: walk the trail with Steve and confirm changes.

c)      Constructing new trail from Mt. Sherman Court down to Sloan Trail: Frank will help us flag it.

4)      Noxious weeds

a)      Water treatment plant: removing weeds, then plant grass and flower seeding – to create a nice view visible from the road

b)      Mow meadows

c)      May contract with County instead of Fortay, or invest in Quad and do it our self.

5)      Consulting with neighbors on weeds and defensible space.
