1.Minutes of previous meeting were read and approved
- Footpath gates will be put on the agenda of the Scoraig etc Garzings Committee meeting
- White goods disposal: Laurence is awaiting a reply from ILM with answers to questions such as costs, will they collect, will they take all electrical goods
- Defibrillator: Luke proposed we look into funding for a public access defibrillator. SCA and STG could work together on this. Agreed that if we don’t get UCT funding we’ll look for other funding sources. Carried unanimously
- UTC funding. UTC is looking for funding projects in outlying areas
- Road: Laurence reported that 7 tonnes of recycled road aggregate is ferried over and spread. Another 14 tonnes should be coming but no date fixed for this. Laurence and Ian have been working on the Badrallach footpath although dumper offered by HC didn’t appear. A large rock dislodged after the fire/heavy rain has fallen onto but not blocked the ditch.
The Achmore track is in poor condition but is not adopted by HC so road money can’t be spent on it.
Laurence proposed funding be sought to improve Achmore track. Motion carried.
- Treasurer’s Report: Account holds £2076 at the end of October, of which £1500 is road funds
- Mooring Boat: engine needs to go in for service. Replacement Yamaha6 is not considered reliable, but it was agreed that rather than the mooring boat be out of use for a week, people could use the Yamaha6 advised of the risk or use their own engines
- Badluarach Jetty area: Luke and Davy offered to clean out the ditch above the road and Davy will contact other potential volunteers. Long term solutions to the drainage problems here were discussed, including building a retaining wall
