Jon Klima resigned from being in charge of pond maintenance, Scott & Nadine Butz volunteered to take over pond maintenance. Weeds need to be removed – we need 2 tractors & volunteers. We have a Volunteer Signup sheet, to do so….on Sept 12. PTRIA restocked pond with fish. We had discussion about buying “fingerlings” – small size fish to cut down on stocking cost. We will be checking into feasibility to see if it’s a good option for us. Bill Jones said he will donate $150 towards purchase of “fingerlings.”
Pike trails website, piketrails.org, is working again after technical repairs!
We had a board meeting to discuss moving the fuel tank, which is used for PTRIA road equipment, to a different parcel of PTRIA land located on Cougar Lane. This is due to requirement that the tank be moved farther away from the pond that is used for firefighting.
We had cows going thru fences once this year at SW area of Pike Trails. We have had cooperation with one of the 3 area ranchers, Dave Wolf, who owns cows who agreed to help in repairing fences around Pike Trails Ranches.
Bill Jones brought up a problem of trespassers. A black or blue vehicle entered his driveway & gate at about 3am on Eagle Lane. They left when they saw him come outside his home. Please be on the watch for trespassers.
Lee Boswell made a motion to adjourn, Bill Jones seconded, motion carried.
Thank you, neighbors for making Pike Trails Ranches a great place to live! Submitted by Cindy Chew,
