Approval of June 24, 2009 Board Meeting Minutes

Al Beck moved and Dave Koenig seconded the motion to accept the minutes as amended.   Motion passed.


Treasurer’s Report

Ron Croteau informed the Board that the date of the disbursement of tax revenue from Anoka County was 07/06/2009. Funds were received in the amount of $$68,676.82 into the fund held at the County arranged account. This payment was more than half of the approx $135,000 assessed property owners for the year. This is due to some residents paying their entire tax liability on May 15th rather than split it. Subsequent disbursals will be on 12/2/2009, and 1/30/2010.   The treasurer’s report indicated there were expenses for the month for the mailing of the notice of annual meeting and DNR permit fees totaling $1,029.84. The balance in the treasury is $69,990.14.  Dave Koenig moved and Al Beck seconded the motion to accept the treasurer’s report as presented.  A copy of the treasurer’s report will be filed with the minutes.
