September Board of Directors Report

The following actions were taken by the Bent Tree Board of Directors at its meeting this week:

· Approved a rule change to prohibit fishing at the spillway

· Approved a measure requiring boat space renters to be assigned specific spaces in the boat storage area.

· Established a $100 fine for fishing in prohibited areas.

· Approved the Bent Tree Activities Committee officers for 2024: President, Dave Stewart, Vice Chair Muzette Randall, Secretary, Laura Chambers, and treasurer, Barbara Foerst.

· Approved a lease agreement with Tim Carver, long-time Bent Tree building and grounds manager, to continue living in retirement in the home he owns on the Campground property, in exchange for him providing security for the site.

· Authorized Administration to work with the Lake and Wildlife Committee to contract for a $3,000 study of sedimentation control for Lake Tamarack, and $30,000 for silt remediation work to Coffey Cove Creek and Mulligan Creek.

Other information that emerged from the meeting:

· An ad hoc committee was created by the president to work with General Manager Jim Pryor to develop a vision plan for Bent Tree using the results of the recently released community survey. The group will be composed of Arty Allen, Robert Calhoun, Laird Carmichael and Rick Patterson. It is expected that the plan will be reviewed and updated annually.

· Work has begun at the Tavern designed to make it handicapped compliant. It will include creation of a accessible bathroom, installation of handicap ramp and other work.

· A nearly three-year effort to make the Lake Tamarack sluice gate operational was completed successfully.

· It was announced that about 600 property owners have signed up to take part in a volunteer effort with the Wildcat Community Firewise Grant. It’s possible several million dollars could be available to remove fire hazard debris and improve forest fire prevention at homes. Contact public safety if you’d like to participate.

· Administration has met with Amazon officials to discuss delivery problems in Bent Tree, which resulted in one delivery person dumping packages at the mail center. Amazon logistic officials visited Bent Tree and agreed that our roads do not meet their standards for delivery, but have turned down the idea of installing a lock-box facility. We’ll keep trying.

Glen Harris, President, Board of Directors.
