6. Old Business:
A. President Fisher asked the delegates to circulate the summary of the June 19 meeting on annexation, prepared by Marybeth Carlile, in preparation for a discussion of the issue at a future meeting.
The proposed ad hoc committee to study the issue is currently made up of Marybeth Carlile, Bill Bookwalter and Alan Buckley. Additional members may be appointed. Inasmuch as a major concern of Big Park residents is the perceived inadequacy of police protection, the committee was asked to suggest alternative solutions to this, as well as any additional issues that become apparent.
.Dick Byrnes asked that the committee investigate the fate of
Forest Service lands in the event of annexation.
• . . Ruth Kane reminded the Council that the process of annexation would take about a year, and therefore, there is time to do thorough research.
B. Dick Byrnes asked for a report on the DRO, and when the delay was again noted as being the failure of the business community to respond, the suggestion was made that the Council request a response based on the objections that are responsible for this delay. The Correspondence Secretary was directed to write to the business association requesting a response listing specific objections.
7. New Business: Ruth Kane announced a reduction in sewer rates of $2.16.
8. Comments, Suggestions, Information:
