Thanks to Gary Standley and Bruce Millerbis for patching the pot holes over the past few months.  Bruce hauled the cold patch by a dump truck and then he and Gary worked on the various holes throughout the Village.  On Friday October 13th Paul Antongiovanni helped spread with his Bob Cat the material by the Fire Hall. We will get more cold patch in the spring and continue the pot hole patching. 

Gary Standley asked for volunteers to repair the posts on the Bulletin Board at the entrance.  Paul Antongiovanni, Bruce Millerbis, and Kent Brown volunteered to help.

A formal motion for the new TVIA signers on the bank account at Umpqua bank was made by Merry Ann Grow and seconded by Tim Fisher and approved by the attendees. The signatures will be: Nancy Standley, Dorothy Fullam, and Cindy Gatioan.

Nancy asked for a report from Merry Ann Grow on the Feral cat program.  There have been 7 new Village kittens taken to a foster home.  The Village Feral Cat Project was formed in 2011 and each year since some donations have come in for the express purpose to help with spay and neutering of Village feral cats.  Cindy and Merry Ann have been capturing and taking care of what they can for several years. A motion was made to rename the Feral Cat Project the “Carol Draper Memorial Fund for Feral Cats.” The motion was seconded and approved.  Requests for donations to the fund will be added to the Annual Village Voice newsletter. Merry Ann asked that we approve $1200.00 now for the cost of kittens to cover the expenditures incurred by Cheryl’s foster care and vet bills. She estimated that around $250 per kitten from the first litter have been incurred by Cheryl.  After much discussion the motion was made by Bruce Millerbis and seconded by Mona Pinochi to pay bills as received up to $1200.00. The motion passed unanimously.  Merry Ann will be presenting bills to Nancy to account for any TVIA expenditures. Paul Antongiovanni donated $91 to help defray the costs of fostering the 7 kittens. Charlene Lundblade has given $200 already for the care and pledged another $200 to go to Cheryl for this.


Anita spoke on Fire Preparedness and asked for volunteers to form a committee to find ways to make our community as safe as possible for escape in case of a fire and make our community aware of the fire dangers and what we should all do on our properties to keep the Village safe.  They will try to work with Trinity County Road department on clearing the roads in  the Village and on Denny  Road.  The committee will consist of Anita Freemantle, Jeff West, Paul Antongiovanni, Kent Brown, Tim Fisher, Derick White, Gary Standley, Joe and Mona Pinochi, and Cindy Gatioan.  The first meeting will be at the Fire Hall on Saturday October 28, 2017 at 10:30 AM. 

The TVIA meetings will now be held at the Fire Hall.  The next meeting will be scheduled for January 6, 2018 at 1pm.

With no further business the meeting was adjourned.
