Gary for getting the county to put in three new stop signs on China Flat and Big Oak and for weed whacking on the Denny Road curve by the Village. Cindy for taking care of the feral cats.

Nancy also thanked the Villagers who contributed a total of $4105 specifically for the purpose to aid in the acquisition of the Village Water Company.

She also thanked the board members of Trinity Village Mutual Water CompanyA for taking on the task of purchasing the water company.

At the request of the TVMWC all of the donated funds will be transferred to their own checking account and a check was issued for the balance of $1354.87, along with a list of all donations and all checks paid out of the donations up to this point.

Anita Freemantle gave a report on the progress of the water company purchase.  The owners have the purchase agreement and should have it back to the board soon and escrow will be opened at that time. They have collected $192,830 and still have money coming in.

Gary Standley talked to the Trinity County Road Department about the pot holes on our roads.  It was taken out of the budget this year and Gary suggested that we try to get them repaired ourselves.  Anita suggested contacting Jim and Jeff West and see if they could help with the repair. He will get back to us with the estimate.

Road frontage clearing was discussed.  The County still had not cleaned up the corners of China Flat and Lone Pine.  Cindy will get a work group together to do the work on Lone Pine and China Flat.  She will also contact the gentleman for the annual clearing of the meridian.  TVIA will pay him as before.

The newsletter will be out soon.  

Audrey asked for volunteers to help at the HBVFD breakfasts starting in June.  They will be the first Sunday of June, July, August, and September at the Fire Hall.  

The next board meeting will be July 5 at noon at the Fire Hall.  The Annual Meeting will follow at 1 pm.

Nancy Standley, Audrey Brown, Dorothy Fullam, Kate Vogelsang, Gary Standley and Mary Seely.  All have volunteered to run again at the meeting in July.
