Financial Report

Old Business
Pool:  2 Bids: Master Pools & Swimming Hole for upgrading the pool and a bid from Viking Fence, at the time the cost for upgrading and fencing on the high side is approx 30,000.00.  Since the pool does have an undocumented leak from years past it has been recommended to have the pool leak tested,  the cost of the test is $800.00 in which the board voted to perform by Master Pools.   Master pools recommended the leak test to be performed in the spring.  If there is no significant damage and within reason of the approx cost then all repairs can be made to bring the pool up to code in about 30 days and Master pools will give a credit of 800.00.  Currently a secure pool cover will be purchased by Four Seasons in order to comply with the Health Department.  More information about the pool will come in the Spring timeframe

7. Taking a look at putting safety screen in the loft area.

Patty has put in a call to County and Fire Department to inspect the loft area.  The questions to be answered: Can we change to stairs to a different location to accommodate more room for the pool area if the Board does keep the pool. OR Do we need to have stairs up in the loft area.  (Currently the outdoor stairs are not safe)
Games will be purchased for the clubhouse and will be available for checkout for a reserved reservation and for future game nights events  at the clubhouse                                             

1. Beachwood Hill: Clipping was left for mulching by the County.  The county will return late Nov/Dec to trim for the winter and return in the spring
2. Email: We will try to get more and more on the email listing to save on postage, this will also provide the residents more up to minute information on community happenings

New Business
1. MBE Website: Currently working on the MBE website
2. Guest Speaker Rebecca Pirtle (District 1 Liaison Kitsap County Commissioners)                                                                            
3. Heritage Park Trails:
**Currently the entry by the water tower is being used by hikers and motorbikes.  Motorbikes are not authorized on and in around the Heritage Park area. Ms Pirtle will see if we can get a speaker from the county to talk about Heritage Park.  More information is available at

**The trail from Miller Bay Estates does originate behind the water towers.  Although the PUD has said they would entertain an entrance there as a last resort there's another problem: the path from the water towers crosses White Horse property as it heads west into the park.  We'll need an easement with Bob Sreen or the eventual White Horse owner if we want to use that route.  Hopes are still open for some other MBE property owner cooperating with an easement directly into the park.  (More information will the forth coming)
** Tracy Harris received an email and call concerning information about the Boundary Review Board. Ms Pirtle spoke a little bit about the review

Boundary Review Board
The Boundary Review Board for Kitsap County has sent a notice to various agencies in north Kitsap of a hearing to consider creating a Metropolitan Park District for the Village Green Foundation that could become a taxing authority.  They want to build a Kingston Community Center and Library.
