4.  Permit Conditions tracking Report:

a.  Asher Pit - as of mid-June significant portions of buffer have not been restored at all, and other portions have little successful ground cover from previous hydro-seedings. Notice of violation to be sent with 30 days to comply before stop work order issued. [Tadema-Wielandt proposed for future permit applications that after restoration provisions have been set, require a cash bond which would be forfeit if the work is not completed by dates set forth in application. Will consider at time of application.]

b.  Jones Pit: significant amount of work done recently. July 30 deadline for completion.

c.  Alexander Pit: Board negotiated with Ed Bearer last year that one year from the date of the permit, July 10, 2018, one-half of the Alexander Pit must have the 100 ft buffer completely restored. They then have another year to remove the large stockpiled materials. CEO to make site visit on July 10. If work is found to be not completed, Board recommends issuing a notice of violation with 30 days to complete work before a stop work order is issued.
