CITY HALL Attending: Dave Engen Ted Whiteman DeEtt McCarty Dan Hormaechea Craig Collins Bud Schmidt Carl Hoss Charles Denham I. Minutes from previous meeting approved as written. II. No. 10 Tee Rebuild: C. Denham gave the committee a cost estimate of $3,000 to build the tee and $300 to reroute cartpaths around the tee. Whiteman was reluctant to vote to approve before seeing a plan on paper. Hormaechea moved to proceed with construction after the McCall Amateur tournament, contingent on approval of drawing by the Superintendent by the committee. McCarty seconded and the motion carried unanimously. III. Drinking Fountains: These estimates were to be presented at the golf staff meeting. IV. Spring Mountain Ranch: Schmidt discussed what happened since the last advisory meeting. There has been no formal process. Informally, they talked about changes in contract discussed by committee when contract was reviewed. SMR agreed that instead of two days for construction changes to give the city three days to review and approve the changes. The city will also have a representative on the site to assure the project proceeds as planned. SMR and the city will meet again in two to three weeks. At this time SMR will provide another draft of the plan for the advisory committee to review. V. There was some discussion about the driving range. Schmidt informed the committee that there are some problems with the 404 wetlands permit, stating that the Fish and Game Department has some objections to some filled wetlands at the D.R. location. Fish and Game are encouraging prosecution to the Corps of Engineers. Further discussion included the fact that directional signs are needed to direct traffic from the #5 green to the #6 tee. McCarty included that there is some danger in driving past #16 green in route from the #5 green to the #6 tee, and suggested moving the cartpath through the back of the #6 tee on the other side of existing trees. VI. Trail Fee Holders: It was brought to the attention of the committee by the Chair that trail fee holders are not following the flow of traffic coming to and from the clubhouse. $chmidt mentioned that a letter has not been sent but will when a list of trail fee customers is received. Carl Hoss will provide him with addresses of all trail fee holders so he can send out letters. Chairman Engen also discussed the problem of non-playing public using the golf course for evening walks. This poses a problem for golfers who want to play at this time. Schmidt suggested we have an officer come out a few evenings and write some "token" citations to set an example. VII. D & D Land Trade: Schmidt says he received an appraisal and will present it to the council on July 11. VIII. Committee Mission: Final discussion included whether or not to proceed with the presentation before City Council to decide if the advisory committee actually has a purpose, due to the fact that recent committee decisions have been overridden by council members. Schmidt suggested that the advisory committee meet with the Mayor to discuss this matter. The committee agreed and Engen will contact the Mayor. The meeting adjourned at 9:45 P.M. Respectfully submitted, Dave Engen Chairman
