Meeting Minutes - May 23, 2006
Members present: Van Lanning, Merrilee George, Cathy Relyea, Dave Harvey,
Rich Welnick and Perry England.
Van called the meeting to order and stated that he had moved the fire pit up
because of the high waters in the winter. Merrilee proposed that Dimitri
Porcelli be hired to do the Beach Club maintenance. Van said that he would
like to see us just have a barbecue to invite everyone to ‘enjoy’ the beach
instead of having a work party. It was passed unanimously.
Van reported that John Raffetto had purchased a paddle boat for $250 and
took it down to the Club, but that it had not been secured and was stolen.
It was decided that in regards to boat storage rental fees, if the boat is
not donated to the Club, $250 per year will be charged to keep a boat on the
rack. All boat owners will be given 30 days’ notice to vacate or pay the
rent for a slot. Joe Mraz will be given a free slot in thanks for his years
of service to the Club.
Perry reported a quote of $8200 on the key code card entry lock system. This
was one bid, but the product can be purchased over the counter for $875 -
$1500; the hardest part is the installation. Key coded locks are needed on
the main gate and the bathrooms. Everyone liked the idea of having key code
access to the Beach to track usage and felt it was a good investment for the
The following project ideas will be presented at the Annual Meeting for
- Sand: $500 proposed for expenditure
- Access: Parking below with permit needed for sloping

find out about Bellevue City laws for motorized boats if neighbor says we
can’t bring them in

It was proposed that we have monthly barbecues throughout the summer in the
months of June, July and August so everyone can enjoy the Beach Club more.
Dates will be picked, and any and all will be invited. Van said we would get
a ½ cord of wood for the fire pit.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned.
