Commissioner Reports:
Commissioner Petz said in regards to the septic drain field after the last meeting, Commissioner O’ Laughlin and S. Lindgren walked up to the drainfield, it was dry. Commissioner O’ Laughlin decided to call the County for a temporary opening of the public restroom. The County told him to contact septic professionals to go through the system following the County’s instruction on exactly what to do before opening the restrooms. B. Sund checked the tanks, pumps, and panel, regulated all pressure ports to pressurize and equal out the system. The alarm went on, it was pumped down and put back into auto position to be in compliance they put another check valve in and may be putting in another curtain drain so water does not come from above and go around the leach field when it rains a lot. They will be checking the cycles then coming up with a plan of action once they have observed what the system is doing. Commissioner Brazil was contacted by the Fire Wise Committee at Lake Cushman who reported that someone said there was a fire burning at the upper parking area at the Hoodsport Trail Park. They suggested signs and fines for fires be posted. He said they have found the biggest offenders to be the campers at the Dow Creek campground. Lake Cushman has strict rules that do not allow fires or fireworks. B. Osborne said the fire was conducted by the port maintenance to get rid of brush that was cut to create a space for the new gazebo. The fire was very controlled, there was water, it was monitored and fully put out. B. Osborne said in the future maintenance would contact Fire Wise to notify them of controlled burns. Commissioner Brazil asked K. Wyatt to make and laminate signs to be posted at the kiosk that say, No open fires, No fireworks.
