Financial reports were reviewed and are posted on the website ( Current bank balance as of 3/31/05 was $20,601.09. $3,060 in dues was deposited in April and will be included in the next bank statement.

There is approximately $6500 in unpaid dues from residents that have not paid in 2004 and are anticipated to not pay in 2005. About half of these residents live on Lake and Visitar and use the road in which the funds repair. The other half live way up Upper Lake and do not access this end of the road. Discussed collecting these unpaid dues pursuant Civil Code 845 which states “all persons with a common right of way must pay their fair share for maintenance of that road, enforceable through Superior Court”. Legal organization of our association and creating By-Laws will need to be done and Debbie Loewen has done some of the necessary research towards this goal. Chris St. Germain will pick up the information accumulated and follow through. Any one interested in participating in this task is welcome to contact Chris at 335-7616 or

Expense reimbursements were made to:
Don McVay $226.11 Road repair supplies last fall
Chris St. Germain $62.48 Postage & PO Box rental paid
Jim Zehm $3,050.00 For hauling away slide on Lake

Discussion regarding the $5000 paid for road grading and paving on Upper Lake was discussed with much energy. It was felt by some that the agreement to pay for the supplies was not done with a consensus approval. Others stated that when the check was agreed to be written that it was agreed by those attending a meeting although the date was uncertain. A breakdown of expenses paid by both the residents and the LBRA fund was presented. It was agree that three more signers would be added to the checking account (Lyle Fleming, Lynn Stipes & Don McVay) and all checks issued in the future would have two signers.
