4.  KBA Manager Report - Lorne Bumphrey was unable to attend, his report will be deferred to the next meeting.

5. Bylaw Compliance Report - Nothing to report

6. Current business arising from minutes

a) KRA Bylaws – now codified and in force so this item can be removed from the agenda.

b)  Kinookimaw Community bylaws: Mike will arrange meeting with Wayne Morris in the coming weeks.  This work needs to continue given the sentiments expressed by W.Morris & Chief T.Peigan at the spring meeting.

7. New Business

a)  Kinookimaw Park Committee – Jill unavailable to attend but indicated there is no update at this time.

b)  Social Committee:  Lorne received an email from a resident volunteering to be the summer social event coordinator, but there was some confusion as to the offer, so Mike will connect with Lorne before reaching out to the resident to confirm.

c)  Trail Maintenance:  Mike and Lorne will begin working on a 2023 calendar for various projects (trail clean-up, storage lot maintenance, flowers, park, etc.) so residents can know in advance when a “work bee” is being held.

d)  Mike will raise the prospect of a KRA funded Summer Student with Wayne Morris.  The student would work with Lorne exclusively on maintenance in the Kinookimaw Residental area.

e)  Emergency Plan:  Item deferred until Community Manager available to report.

f)  Christmas Dinner:  Dina Dennis and Terri Tramer have volunteered to coordinate the annual Christmas Dinner event.  KRA will again purchase the turkeys with residents bringing the rest of the meal.
