  5. Speed on farm roads — Carol
    • All agreed that excess speed on the driveways is creating clouds of dust and endangering farm animals and children. All agreed that a combination of these things are appropriate:

      2. signage,
      3. traffic calming "speed bump" trenches, and
      4. dust suppression

    • All agreed that this is an operational matter that does not require group consensus. The water testing bill will come out of the budget 2009 "Well Maintenance" item, as agreed Minutes:20090228.
    • Susie Anne: what were results of test?
    • Jan: coliform count was well below safe level; iron and magnesium were well below levels that would require the use of the green sand filter. Reports have been sent to all members and residents via email. Meg Buckley was notified of the results.
    • James/Carol: water pressure is still low and erratic.
    • Jan: we now have data needed for Mindy.
    • ACTION: [x] Contact Mindy to report water testing results and to get a new media filter. (Jan Steinman)
