Road Report:  Highview Drive has been completed as of September 19.  One week later, a home owner had a gas line installed.  A hole 3’x5’x8’ was dug into the road. Dominion will be notified of a cost of repair to G.A.R. Paving specifications.  The feedback regarding Highview has been enormously positive.  G.A.R. paving also laid asphalt on Edgewater, the west end of driftwood, the clubhouse driveway, and Lakeland drvie.  Also done were the intersection of Highview and Longview 30 feet each directions. Our roads are only 16 feet wide.  We do not have a berm to park on.  It would be appreciated if there was no parking on the road.  Also note:  Any future gas line or work affecting the roads will need permission from Restful Lake Association.  There may be a cost associated for home owner and/or utility company.  Jeff spoke to brad Cyhan about plowing this year.  He agreed to plow for the same as last year which is $5000, made in 5 monthly payments.  Salting will be done as needed.  Jeff will be looking into buying a pallet of rock salt to disperse to our homeowners who live on hills for emergencies.  Most of road signs, stop signs, speed limit signs, imformational signs, and entrance signs have been installed and will be finished before winter.  Everyone has been very positive about all of the work that has been done this year.  Rich made motion. Rick 2nd.  Unanimous vote.
