Guests Present:  Stephen Johnson, Judy Viola


Communications from County Representatives:  Dale Greer presented a handout of the Scope of Work for the Red Feather Lakes Traveled Road Centerline Survey.


Comments from the Audience:  Judy Viola reported that the RFL Elementary School is the only school left on the closure list.  The meeting with the Feasibility Committee is tonight, December 10, at the school.  The school district has not been able to offer a cost analysis of how much money it will save by closing RFL Elementary or how much it will cost to have the RFL children go to the Livermore school.  There is concern about the lack of accountability by the superintendent, who is the individual making the final decision.  Judy also reported that records show that the mill levy paid by the local rural area is much more than the cost of running the RFL school.




Concern was expressed about possible continued misunderstandings of the legal meaning of the centerline survey.  There was discussion about including a disclaimer regarding the purpose of the maps on the maps produced from the survey.  Dale Greer explained that named roads will be shown where they intersect with the designated public roads.


Jill Bennett is retiring and this was her last meeting with PAC.  PAC members gave her a gift certificate from the Downtown Business Association and much thanks and appreciation for her help and support.


Bud Thomas and Bill Gilbert are resigning from PAC.  They were thanked for their hard work.


PAC members were asked to come to the next meeting with issues for discussion in the next year.


RFLPAC meeting adjourned at 3:20 p.m.
