New Business: Trudy Krinner proposed a sign for the park refuse signs. Louis Frost supported the idea. Wayne Reuter will follow up. Sarah McConnell asked the board to review the requirement to remove snow from the Manor sidewalks, and also to have a removeable speed bump put in on Lakeview. Bill Jones spoke in support and asked a second. David Frost and Pete Peterson commented on the current city codes. Jay Kleinman suggested Sarah propose a motion that the members put in a speed bump on Lakeview by Keefe’s, Bard seconded. There was unanimous support. Bob Krinner suggested a traffic sign. Bob Schorsch suggested the placement be in front of his house. President Kleiman suggested the board draft a letter to the city on the issue of snow removal; post it on the website for comments; and, then mail it to the city. He also suggested Sarah and other members approach the city directly on speed bumps or other options to slow traffic on Lakeview. Barb Sheilds seconded that motion and it was approved unanimously. 


David Frost had invited and received confirmations from Todd Krause and Ellyn Kehoe, our Alderman, but neither showed up.


Bill Jones discussed the idea of putting the lifts in the park during winter. He made a motion to allow the boat lifts to be stored in the park. Pete seconded. Trudy said it would be seven months not three months and it would be an eyesore. Don Rutkowski said it is very unsightly. The lifts are personal items and shouldn’t be kept in the park…Don Getzen begged to not have the lifts in the park. The overwhelming majority opposed this.


Pete Peterson proposed adjourning and Joan Thompson seconded. Support was unanimous.


Party: Mike McNerney reported last year the party consumed a record number of bottles of wine but there was beer left over. The party will start at five or before.


A moment of silence was held for the many deceased Manor members of this past year. John Mancini, Elmer Zingle, Tom Schwatz, and Linnie Butts.


Footnote: An organizational meeting was not necessary as as all Board Members were retaining their positions.
