The Logan Creek Estates GID Board of Trustees met yesterday. The Board will again support the fire safe program with the removal of bags of yard debris. South Tahoe Refuse will remove six 32-gallon bags of household trash and yard debris on Tuesday, May 25th at no additional cost and all households are encouraged to use that opportunity. The GID support for removing additional bags will begin after that date.

The Public Hearing was held for the budgets for next fiscal year, beginning July 1st. The revenues for the General Fund (mostly property tax and sales tax) are expected to be flat for the next year. The Board will try to get our roads sealed prior to the end of the summer.

The water user fee will stay the same for the next fiscal year. At present, we have no major projects on tap for the water system, though the fire department may encourage us to expand our water storage capacity. Both budgets were approved.

We talked with some NDOT folks today. The Cave Rock Tunnel Extension project will begin in mid-May and last until the fall. They will be extending the entrance to the western tunnel by 60 feet thereby creating a bigger landing area for falling rocks. They will also be doing some erosion control work on our side of the tunnel. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction through the eastern tunnel all summer. While the speed of traffic through the one tunnel will be reduced, there are no planned stoppages to the traffic flow. So, with the exceptions of a couple of bike and running events and the 4th of July, NDOT doesn’t expect any traffic problems from the project.
