Mr. Kitzman requested that a complete budget be provided to the Board for review at each meeting. Dana Larson said that he would work with Tricia Tessendorf and Devra Smestad to see what report could be generated.
Dana left the meeting to ask Devra if a report was available and returned with two different reports. The reports helped answer some of the Boards questions but a more detailed report may still be desired.
Park Manager Steve Fuegmann appeared to present the end of year report. The Old Settlers Park has had an increase in park activity. Nelson, Carlson, and Rice Lake also had a good year. There was only one occurrence of vandalism that was bad. Steve also commented that he really enjoyed working with his help this year.
Mr. Kitzman requested that Steve provide to the Board with other camp site rates for comparison for the spring meeting. The Board also discussed the long term stay policies. Steve indicated that a two week limit is in place and that he has not had any problem enforcing this policy.

Mr. Kitzman left the meeting at 8:34 a.m.
Steve then presented the Old Settlers Park bathroom remodeling update. Phase I is now complete and proposals were sent out for Phase II.

Nybakken to send out for bid Phase II in 3 options: Option 1 – Entire Project; Option 2 – Tiles for the Floor; Option 3 – Concrete for around bathroom facility.
