Treasurer’s Report:

$10,000 grant was received from PVUS from their previous meeting

Misc. costs incurred as of last meeting: $450 directors insurance, $160 post office fees, $50 Pemberton Chamber of Commerce membership

April 11, 2010 funding request to PVUS was not granted for two reasons 1) PVUS council wanted more details and a report from Staff and 2) trails to be maintained and built were technically outside of the jurisdiction of PVUS

PVUS councils suggestion was that PVTA petition the regional directors for funding


Letter from Ministry of Forest and Range: they will be actively patrolling regional FSRs and wilderness recreation areas this summer for unlawful use of motorized vehicles.
