6. New Business:

    1. It was agreed unanimously to revise our procedure on our minute’s report read to the Board at their meeting. Our meeting minutes will be mailed to each Board member prior to the Board meeting. This gives each Board member the opportunity to read the Committee minutes prior to their meeting. At the Board meeting the Committee Chairman will only highlight each item and not read the detailed Committee meeting minutes. This procedure will take considerable less time allowing the Board to have more available time for their more important topics. Copies of the detailed minutes will be available upon request at the Board Meeting.

    2. A recap has been compiled of all of the Arch. Committee approvals since June 3, 1997 (New Guidelines effective date). The list is by year, date, lot, address, & type of improvement. It will be completed and available in the latter part of December.
    3. The Meeting was adjourned at 10:30 p.m. motion by Don I, seconded by Richard K. Unam.
