TO KEEP EVERYONE UP TO DATE ON WHAT THE FHA BOARD IS DOING, HERE ARE SOME OF THE ITEMS THAT WERE DISCUSSED OR DECIDED AT THE MARCH BOARD MEETING:
The FHA website upgrade continues. High resolution photos will be posted, and the site will be more accessible on mobile devices.
Kathryn Soter will work with Katherine Boschetto and the FHA webmaster to develop guidelines for formatting ads.
At an RBRA meeting on March 8, the following priorities were presented: Bay ecology, enforcement, human possibilities, modified anchorage and safety. Teddie Hathaway, Court Mast and Louise Simpson will meet separately with Beth Pollard, the new RBRA Executive Director, for further clarification.
Teddie is following the progress of a House of Representatives bill that would allow mobile home park owners to sell their parks directly to residents at a tax discount. Our goal would be to make the law apply equally to floating home marinas. The bill has been referred to the House Ways and Means Committee.
Three private tours have been booked and we have three more inquiries.
A revived Artists @ Issaquah event is scheduled for September 8th from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Look for further details and instructions for participating.
The FHA will once again participate in Coastal Clean Up, which is Saturday, September 15 this year.
Over 40 more residents were scheduled to have free Red Cross smoke alarms installed on Saturday, March 17 from 9-4 p.m.
Emergency Services Chair Flo Hoylman relayed a concern expressed by firefighters that plants and other objects are blocking connections firemen use for their own hoses, as well as blocking electricity and gas boxes. Dock reps were asked to check out their respective docks to be sure these areas are clear.
