 Nominations for board elections in November were officially opened.  Patty Rose, Kathy Malley and Hal Rooks all indicated they would run again for election in November.  Per our Bylaws, nominations will close at the end of the October meeting.

New Business -  A discussion was held concerning the upcoming Annual Meeting in November.   The date has been set for November 8, 2020 at 4:00 pm on Zoom.  Islanders will be allowed/encouraged to attend virtually and details will be available on LineTime and .  If Chief Snell is available, the main presentation will be about fire prevention and mitigation on Guemes.  Michael Brown agreed to contact Olivia Snell Fire Chief to see if the fire department can give islanders a presentation.

Updates - Hal Rooks updated the board on P1 and P2 code amendments and noted that P1 seems likely to be approved with caveats, but P2 has not yet been officially decided.  There is some question whether there will be a decision before any new County Commissioner(s) take office after the general election in November.

Hal Rooks adjourned the meeting at 7:35pm.
