A letter has been submitted to the Attorneys for Alaska Sutherland regarding the unpaid
taxes on the lots received in the 2009 settlement. The agreement does stipulate that lots
were to be transferred with taxes current. Grass cutting is underway and owners have
until July 25th to complete the cutting. Two owners have contacted the Administrator and
requested additional time, which was granted. An inspection will be done at the end of
June on the cutting. Since the grass is growing quickly this year, lot owners were warned
that an additional cutting may be required.
A request has been submitted to the Newsletter Editor for a replacement of street signs
for Chi Chi Lane. The City of Sutherlin is responsible for this street sign, as well as the

for Chi Chi Lane and Slazenger Court with a total of $350.00 being allowed for the
replacement of these signs. Motion passed unanimously. Monica Duran will follow up
with our sign company and get the work completed.

could be purchased from them at a reasonable rate. We do have donated bottles of wine
that can be included in the baskets.

built along Scardi Blvd. will be completed in July. Stripping along Scardi Blvd. has been
