This month’s guest speaker will be Mr. Dave Heath, Parks and Recreation Director for
Bullhead City. Dave has any number of events going on all the time, this week for
example is a senior citizens softball tournament. The City has recently constructed a
number of pickleball courts and work is progressing nicely on Section 12. Dave will
bring you up-to-date on a number of new and exciting programs for our Community.
The mail in ballots for the Bullhead City Fire District Bond measures are due back at the
County on November 7th, so we should know the results of that election when we meet
on the 8th.
We are still waiting for Mohave County to rescind the permit fee increase as they have
said they will do but as of yet it hasn’t been done.
As stated at the last meeting the County is exploring the adoption of the 2015 building
code and we are going to be very active in that discussion.
Your home show committee is again planning for our spring home and garden show
which will be held March 24th and 25th, 2018. This event takes a lot of work and has
been very successful as a fund raiser for our association. As usual though, the
committee needs your help on this event.
Make your dinner reservations now while you are thinking about it.

Old Business

President Adams said that there was a meeting held by the County Board of Appeals to discuss fee increases.  Secretary Caponetto went to this meeting.  He said that the building fee increases were at the direction of Director Walsh, County Board of Supervisors.  They arbitrarily approved the increases.  They are going to have another public hearing to discuss this subject and to make a recommendation to rescind the increase in building fees.  Any fee increases has to go to the Building Department only. The increase in building fees went from $500 to $2000.  Secretary Caponetto said that he will be notified by email to him regarding any changes.  President Adams thanked Secretary Caponetto for his input.  President Adams also said that on December 13th Keith Walker will be discussing 2015 Building Codes.  We need to be there.

Where To Retire

President Adams brought in a copy of the magazine Where to Retire,  and showed the one small ad in the magazine stating that Bullhead City is the most affordable city to live in.  It is distributed nationwide and in Canada.  It costs us $1500 to put in the advertisement.

Guest Speaker

President Adams said that Doug Stevens will be our guest speaker tomorrow night to discuss the Fire Department Bond issue.  President Adams talked about the Fire Fighters Union going all out for this bond.  He said that there is no coverage of other side of this issue.  Ballots are being sent out to vote on this bond and need to be returned by mail by November 7th.   A short discussion was held.
