As ususal, there were "fireworks" at the monthly CSCD meeting. The starting announcement was that the Chairperson of the Board, Jerry Fenwick, had resigned and that the area #5 chair on the board is open. Other topics discussed were gas pump hours and prices, employee boat sticker priviledges, boat length issues, road paving for Hackberry and other drives, an audit for the Conservancy, and more. The board failed to reach agreement on the boat length issue now scheduled for another hearing on June 17th at 7:30 PM at the monthly Security Commission meeting.

Property Taxes due May 10th took a significant increase for many residents here in the Conservancy. The county property tax rate increased due to school budgets. The local conservancy taxes also increased significantly. Last year, the conservancy had to borrow roughly $300,000 for operating expenses. A lawsuit caused the DLGF (government funding agency) to hold approximately $300,000 used for mainly for security. The lawsuit was settled and now the conservancy is recovering the $300,000 in a one time tax levy. Good year the conservancy tax should decrease significantly.
