DISCUSSION on the campground and the vandalism that took place on the 4th of July. The campground attendant was not on hand for that evening because it was there day off. On the 4th during the night, the fireworks went a bit crazy in the campground. They put a large firework in one of the men’s toilets and it had BM in the toilet which it shot that all over the floor, wall, and ceiling of the men’s bathroom. It was a huge mess down at the campground. In the future the attendant must be on duty for all summer holidays. We did have a camera pointed at the bathroom and it did get a picture of two males, all of this was reported to the Pierce County Sheriff’s office. They came out and took a report of the incident and the camera photos were turned over to them.

DISCUSSION on Bay City Days preparation for the kid’s area were coming along, preparation for the parade is also coming along. Signs will be put up to direct people where to park etc. The button sales is reported to be pretty good.

DISCUSSION on the letter that was received from Jesse Hohmann on cleaning up the railroad tracks and clearing out the brush on the rip rap, Jesse also had several other issues that he would like to see addressed. He said the old historic jail needs to be repaired there is a big crack over the doorway that needs to be repaired , he didn’t like that some of the flags that were put out were extremely faded and he also is worried about Village Hall.
