            Correspondence Report: The following correspondence was received:

·        A thank you note from the Hallett’s for snowplowing on Mason Lane

·        An email from Don Smith, who owns property on the exempted portion of Mason Lane.  He wrote of the agreement formed in 1991 for the CICA to plow & maintain all of Mason Lane.  There was no obligation for the residents of Mason Lane to pay dues in order for the maintenance to be performed, however those residents should be strongly encouraged to do so.  This is in keeping with how the road has always been maintained. His opinion supported the conclusion reached by the board examining the agreement at a previous board meeting.

Town Watch:  No incidents to report.  Activity on the beach & in the harbor area seems to be way down since the chains have been going up at night.  The watch was cancelled several times last month, as many volunteers did not receive their schedules.  The committee is considering mailing them instead of sticking them in the tubes.  (Jim Weber)


Tractor:  No report given (Marty Smith)








NEW BUSINESS:  Our guests spoke about their organization, which performs “controlled hunts” in areas where the deer population is growing out of control.  They only do bow-hunting on private property & are interested in using Chesapeake Isle properties.  They distributed pamphlets & discussed the types of property they would be interested in hunting (those that back up to the woods).  They have an excellent safety record & are very careful & insured & would abide by any rules & restrictions we state.  There would be no expense to Chesapeake Isle residents.  After some discussion it was suggested, then confirmed, that according to the CICA by laws, hunting in any form is strictly prohibited on Chesapeake Isle property.




CLOSE OF BUSINESS:  The next meeting will be held on 4/11/2000 at 7:30 p.m. at the Barr’s.


There being no further business to discuss, the meeting was adjourned at 9:30 p.m.
