SHERIFF’S POSSE COMMUNITY ROAD IMPROVEMENT AND MAINTENANCE DISTRICT
On June 17, 2015 6:00 P.M.
Prescott Public Library, Elsea Room, 215 E. Goodwin St., Prescott, AZ 86303
(Agenda #1) The meeting was called to order at 6:00 P.M. Noel Gormay, Joe Veranth, and Mike O’Connor attended, along with two community members.
(Agenda #2) Joe moved acceptance of the May 27 minutes. Mike seconded, and the motion passed unanimously.
(Agenda #3) The public hearing on the budget proposal consisted of an update by Joe stating that Bob was now estimating tax levy collections for this year of $12,440 so the levy for next year need be only $12,550 — basically the same as last year. There was no public input.
(Agenda #4) Following the public hearing, Noel moved adoption of the budget and Mike seconded. It was briefly discussed whether to move $200 from contingency to administrative, but that was deemed unnecessary. The motion passed unanimously. Joe will submit the Levy form to the county.
(Agenda #5) Concerning whether to take action on the water condition at the intersection of Sheriff’s Posse Trail and Gentle Breeze, Noel opined that was not necessary till we see evidence of road damage, since we don’t know where the water comes from nor whether a “fix” would be successful and though he travels the road every weekday to and from work he did not find the water contributing to a significant ice problem. Mike had no personal input, simply reporting that Rivards on occasion couldn’t climb the hill because of the ice. Joe had no personal experience to contribute. Lauren Veranth suggested we move one of the sand barrels to that intersection. Since we lacked meaningful community input aside from Noel’s, At Joe’s suggestion the discussion was tabled, to be addressed if other community members wanted to come forward and raise the issue.
(Agenda #6) Joe presented a synopsis of Neal’s recommendation that we consider another speed limit sign on SPT facing both ways at the start of the descent near Dorchesters. None of the Board members thought it would do much to lower speeds, the benefit being purely a possible lessening of liability for accidents. This discussion was also tabled after Joe agreed to get a quote on a pole with two signs.
(Agenda #7) Noel moved to authorize Bob Keltie to transfer $7000 from the M&O account to the Chip/Fog SealReserve account. Joe seconded and the motion passed unanimously.
(Agenda #8) The distribution of responsibilities among the Directors and Bob Keltie was reviewed, and Mike agreed to take over the Clerk responsibilities. Noel moved that Mike become the responsible person for records management. Joe seconded, and the motion passed unanimously.
(Agenda #9) There were no proposals for future agenda items, pending community feedback on #5 and #6 and a quote on the latter.
(Agenda #10) No future meeting dates were set.
(Agenda #11) A call to the public went unanswered.
(Agenda #12) The meeting was adjourned at 6:35 P.M.
