CLDC/WECRD Meeting December 16, 2010Posted Friday, December 17, 2010, at 12:39 PM
Anyway, the events of the meeting were something like this.
Mark Hiddleston plans to stay on the CLDC as a chair/co-chair. Alan Bermensolo has declined to remain. The members of the CLDC will be contacted to find out how many of them wish to continue down the Yellow Brick Road.
As per the December 16, 2010 meeting, the facility will need to be built in stages to avoid debt. They plan to go forward with a $20,000-$60,000 study to determine how much money can be raised, through donations, by this community. The study should be done by March, 2011 (this is Mr. Hiddleston's personal goal). For those of you who do not know, this community has already paid for this study and it is called the Shaw Snow Report. I believe this study was done in 2002 and it was pretty expensive. So now, we will pay for yet another study to ask the same people how much they wish to donate. Make much sense? Most of these people indicated they were skeptical, etc. What has changed now?
So, you can look forward to increased taxes for this through 2028 according to the "Mountain Hpme Facility Plan" documents which were handed out at this meeting.
Phase I could be completed in about 4-5 years.
Phase II (with pools) would open around 2024 or at year 14. An operational subsidy would be needed in the form of taxes/money-funding from the WECRD.
So folks...what is another 4-5 years for Phase I or another 14 years for your pools (Phase II)?
This is the information that Jana Borgalthaus did not want Kelly Everitt to put in this paper (she made a statement in the meeting asking if he was going to print a positive story and support them or print the facts...for example this timeline). I have a copy of this is anyone would like to see it.
So, welcome higher taxes! You get exactly what YOU voted for. Thank you. Nothing like taxation without representation.
Marsha, Mollie and Jana---job well done!

I have lived in Mountain Home for over 11 years now. I love to be outdoors in wide open spaces (as long as it does not involve camping...in a tent and an out house). I dislike Government waste/abuse of tax dollars and "sky is the limit" spending by those that we elect to represent "us." I value free speech when what is stated is factual (as opposed to lies, gossip and un-truths). I love the Chicago White Sox (I never said I was perfect) and the Broncos are okay too! I am 38 years old and married to a guy who is active duty USAF (and a Cubs fan...he is the "perfect" one). I am anti-nuclear and against further desecration of our planet with waste that we can do little to nothing with. If you dislike blunt, this is not the blog for you. Enjoy!
