Rick Humerickhouse wanted to know about advertising forbabysitting.  This was advertised onFacebook.  Is this allowed? 

Chris noted that ever since Y Wee Care closed, CLV knows itis happening, but to shut down the daycares in here would cause a huge audienceat next month’s Board Meeting.  We’venever received a complaint about a traffic jam with daycare and children beingdropped off and picked up.

Rick also asked about the disrepair of homes in CLV.  What are we doing about it?  He knows Chris sent a letter to (1) member,who wasn’t very happy in receiving the letter.

What is the definition of looking bad?  Yard mowed, trash, vehicles on blocks? Thisis a subjective call and will be dealt with on “as needed” basis.

Larry Loucka made a motion to adjourn.
