A question about PayPal being incorporated into the YWPHI website. No, not yet.
Trucks taking water out of hydrants: The County has given the go-ahead to the Glacier Point construction crews. Eagle Peak Rock and Paving company is taking the water. Public-works are paying $18.10/gallon. The funds then go into the Yosemite West Maintenance District. They are using about 5-10k gallons of water/day. Ken Wall: Since we use the Park's Hwy (41), we're doing a neighborly "favor." Project goes through next fall.
Yosemite Institute had an open campus. The event was not well attended. Comment period ends July 15 (or so). Whole document is available online and bids are coming in on preliminary design. Area around where the old sand lot, only one or two buildings should be visible from road. A second "egress" must be built. Decision has not been made with regards to which location to use, but the Yosemite West location is the "preferred" location vs. Crane Flat. Comments on alternative plans will be taken through mid-summer. Comments are to be posted in December (or so). Betty Clark: Please ask Park Service to do something about the intersection into Yosemite West. Although the official comment period is closed, they might consider comments made about the turn onto Henness Ridge Road from Hwy. 41. A fire station is part of the plan, but not year-round, so it will not affect insurance.

Suggestions and requests: Jeff Hornacek: A couple different ideas, $1750 with free help. The boxes will be free-standing, front-loader boxes. They will be in the elements at a cost of a couple hundred per box. Mail-station is now full, but anybody is allotted a box, if they want to install it themselves. Rural mailbox rack is currently full. Possibly install a third rail to accommodate new boxes.
Board has no vacancies.
Vote on officers: Terms are three years, so no vacancies just now.
Asking for suggestions from community members.1) Build a fourth fire hose house (or two?) so we move them out of the garbage cans on Ken Wall's deck: Yes.
