It is interesting.... but, it's more interesting to read about how it's been over looked, not caught, etc. up until now.  Laughing

probably a double edged sword. Certainly one wants to prevent possible abuses from being a non-profit. On the other hand, how many cost effective state agencies do you know of?

Trailfest  article from Gilbert Times-


By Cindy Browning lbradford@civitasmedia.com
GILBERT — A special Gilbert Town Council meeting was arranged for Jan. 22 to discuss Trailfest for 2015. The Larry Joe Harless Community Center and the town of Gilbert must reach several agreements before the planning can move forward.


Cheryl Mitchem, Executive Director of LJHCC, wrote up a memorandum of understanding for the town to look over and sign. The memorandum included agreements on insurance, security, wristband passes, vendors and contractors to prepare and reclaim the properties to name a few.


Although LJHCC is willing to work with the town on Trailfest, mayor Vivian Livingood is unwilling to sign and agree on the memorandum of understanding due to specific items listed within.


Livingood stated that the town does not wish to make any money on Trailfest and that she is willing to allow LJHCC to keep all money made aside from what it will cost to actually put the event on. But funding is a major issue, as the town is limited on funding availability.


The well-known mud pit and dirt track are looking like one of the funding issues between the town and LJHCC. LJHCC has stated that there is a possibility they may have the work of the digging and reclaiming done by a volunteer but it still isn’t set in stone. The town also had an offer from a contractor to do the work for $6500, in which the majority of that cost may possibly be lowered if the town is able to obtain sponsorship. Regardless of who is chosen to do the work, they must also be insured and covered under worker’s compensation. Livingood is still uncertain if she will have the mud pit and dirt track this coming year because of the funding issue as there is much more to preparing the land than digging and reclaiming. The land must be cleaned, holes filled in and it must also be hydro-seeded and covered with straw, which is another debt that the town must cover.


If the town decides against the dirt track and mud pit then other activities will be planned to take their place. Although many decisions are still up in the air being tossed here to there and regardless of who is making money, mud pit or not, the town plans to proceed with Trailfest and do the best to their ability to keep it going for the town of Gilbert.

During the year ended December 31 , 2012, the Authority received funds from the \M/ Division of Tourism
grant for which the Executive Director serves as a board member for \A/V Division of Tourism. Total funds
received were $36,719 for the year ended December 31,2012.

I noticed Fisher doesn't ride your trails for cheap.



Neither does Dirt Traks.



The response from Lusk to the State list a ton of changes they were happy to make!

Ya think? scratch

I now wonder if federal laws were skirted since grant monies were involved.
