V. Committee Reports
Rita Lumos reported that she had a meeting with the people who are
going to install the cell phone monopole. Some of the highlights were
that the area containing the equipment will be 30’x75’ or 2250 sq feet. It
will be located on a consolidated 2.8 acre lot among a rather large grove
of trees. The building will meet all Storey County building codes, be
painted a dark brown and have a fence surrounding the installation. The
owners of the lot plan on building their home in the next few years.
See attachment B for the plans. Rita informed us that all the plans and
pictures are available from the architectural committee or in the Building
Department in Virginia City. Also the committee will again review the
plans after the final approval of the commissioners.
Steve did an exhaustive report which is available on line for the
homeowners to study if they wish.
Nothing to report this month. Karlyn and Dave are still working on
getting the monies still owed to the park fund.
VI. Unfinished Business
A. White top Problem
Mary talked to Austin concerning the large amount of white top throughout
the Highlands area. He said he will try to attend our June meeting for
an update. Apparently all the monies have been exhausted throughout
county for weed eradication.
B. Annual Audit
Pat stated that the audit is almost finished with just small details left which
Dave will take care of.
C Eminent Domain /Firehouse
Nothing to report on the sale of the firehouse to Storey County.
D. New Signs
Dave is waiting for a response from the DA as to the legality of posting
private property signs on county roads. He will find out if it is ok for us
to post private roads when Lousetown is a county road.
VII. New Business
A. The annual meeting was discussed and the date of July 28 was
discussed. We briefly discussed who should be our invited guests to give
the residents updates on various items. The date and time will be finalized
at the next meeting.
B. Mary reminded us about the Highlands clean up day scheduled for the 19th.
She will have trash bags at the mailboxes if needed. She asks us to work
on our streets and leave the bags out for the garbage pick up on Monday.
VIII. Comments by Association Members
