Chris Holbert called the meeting to order at 3:08 pm and introduced Councilman Zim Zimmerman.
Zim discussed the road construction. Zim discussed the upcoming election and urged everyone to remember that the next President will appoint up to 4 Supreme Court Justices. The stop sign at Camp Bowie and Wellington was put there to slow the people coming from the traffic circle. He said that it is a temporary solution until we can redesign the intersection.
Holly Ross asked about the sign for dogs on leashes at the Press Cafe. Zim said that he would have to discuss it with the property owners since that is private property.
Julie Miers said that Overhill looks good and she believes that the light at Overhill and 183 has been fixed so more than 2 cars can get through the light.
Frank Brants requested that he check on the light at Hilldale.
Chris Holbert said that minutes have been posted on the website and are available up front. Anne Hufstetler put forth a motion to accept the minutes, and was seconded. Minutes were approved.
Chris Holbert announced that Paul Lager has resigned so that he can spend more time traveling. It has created a vacancy if anyone is interested and it is ultimately decided on by the Executive Committee. It will be a one year term to finish out Paul’s term.

Ann updated everyone about the previous events with excellent turnouts at National Night Out and the Happy Hour at the Basement Lounge. Halloween in the Hills is coming up and this year will be for paid members and their guests. Each paid household receives two wristbands and can purchase additional wristbands for $3 each. Anyone under 18 does not need a wristband. We have had an overwhelming response for sponsors this year. We will have a train, DJ, obstacle course, photo booth, pumpkin decorating, Game Truck, Food Trucks, and so much more! Frank Brants and Solar City is our headline sponsor at the event for this year. Huge thanks to all of our sponsors. Julie reminded that we have permits, insurance, and individual vendors are insured.
Progressive Dinner is set for December 10th.
Julie Miers said that we have officially rented a storage unit and have purchased tailgate covers, trash cans, ice chests, and some tables rather than rent/borrow for every event.
Officer Pennington was unable to make it, however, there is not much to report. Crime is way down. Speeding is still an issue, with 80-90% of traffic stops being RH residents. Please slow down and be aware as the weather is nice so more people are out walking.
Meeting was adjourned at 3:41pm.
