-Border-to-Border ride resolved town that didn’t want them. Took place February 7, 2009. Used town roads to bypass concerned landowners.
-New law enforcement – Southern county – if not on own side, they will issue a ticket. Also for cutting corners or not in control.
-Less Early Bird TMA but more regular ones. Why?
-In Legislature – motor vehicle processing registration but not getting paid. Question: Increase $5 for motor vehicle and State Police $5 increase. If they do that, VAST won’t need to pay them for law enforcement.
-Construction projects before June 30, but the sooner the better.
-Grooming survey, 2006-2007, 2007-2008. Sandy Woodbeck, Henry Murray and Roger Hall will meet to fill out report.
