A follow up discussion to a meeting held regarding the offering of an alternative membership status prompted some questions. It was decided that the LRC attorney would be asked to review this suggestion and advise the board of his findings.
Old Business: Regarding the replacement of the canopies around the pool, the board was advised that the cost was more than expected.
