The updated Capital Projects & Expenditures report was given to the Board members for review and input.

 

Committee Reports: 

Crime Watch: Ray Kittelberger, and Mike Gordon, for Stan Weston.  Crime for Fox Island was minimal for 2016.  The Crime Watch Committee wishes to change their name to “Citizens’ Patrol”.  A resolution was passed to that effect and will be found in the G-mail repository.  Hal suggested the Citizen Patrol submit a Mission Statement if they so desire.  The County Sheriff office is no longer publishing a report of crimes for the month that we can glean information from for Fox Island.  Ray will work with our Citizen Patrol Committee to see if we can get the sheriff deputy we pay to pull monthly data for us.

 

Emergency Planning: Ray Kittelberger.  Ham Operators, and Citizen patrol hand held radios are in continuous testing.  A Map has been prepared to coordinate or pin-point possible spots for evacuation if needed.  This map will also be used by marine surveillance to communicate problem locations on the island as seen from the water.  This map will be available to personnel throughout the Emergency Prep Committee.  Our shelters are the UCC and FI Alliance churches – if they are safe and habitable during an emergency.  A presentation should be made to our residents – to be scheduled in April or May.  We should use the bridge update as the main draw.  Jim is to coordinate a possible Fire District representative presentation so residents learn about the emergency plan and how they might prepare.  There is a emergency first aid class available for our Emergency Prep team members scheduled for January 28.

Building Committee: Jim Braden, for Jean Peterson. The preparations for our party with a purpose, called “Evening in Venice”, is coming along nicely. Invitations are out and signs up. It may be a smaller event this year (late start).

 

Nature Center: Ed Burrough: Nature Center Minutes are posted on ficra.org.  The trails are open for use.  Plants and trees have been ordered from the Pierce Conservation District for the Spring planting.  Work parties continue to remove noxious plants.

 

Special Committees: 

Audit Committee: No report.

Nominating Committee: A Nominating Committee is needed.  Contact Jim if interested.

 

Unfinished Business:  

Sport Field: The “buy a brick” program will continue to raise money for the Sports Field Project.  Folks who donate $250 or more during the “Evening In Venice” event will automatically receive notice of having bought a brick.

 

Planning Calendar: Still working.  Jim will initiate an event to get the directors to practice accessing the G-mail repository system.

Publicity: Brochure updates have been made. It was decided that we don’t want more than about 200 of each.  Howard will see where the price-break falls on these and advise so a final count can be established.

 

New Business:

Jim will be getting reviews of the NCC exterior condition to determine what should be done to be sure we are keeping the building in appropriate condition.  Jim will report those opinions back to the Board.

 

Meeting Adjourned at 8:17 PM.

 

Next meeting is February 9, 2017

 

Respectfully Submitted by Jim Braden .

Committee Reports: 

Social Activities Committee: Jim addressed the issue of getting more activities going at the NCC.  We have the projector now that would accommodate movies.  Howard suggested doing a quick facebook/e-mail survey to see what residents would like to take part in.  We will send out options like movies, dancing, “open mic”, with the survey.
