The Commission discussed the letter of commitment for 2020 slip leases and the General Rules. The Commission corrected the items that needed to be changed to correspond to our size Marina. Commission Chairman Chuck took on the task of making the changes agreed upon at the meeting. Chuck will also write a cover letter explaining the changes, this will be included along with the amended agreement and the corrected general rules. We will extend the deadline for the down payment to the end of this January. Chuck will ask Jessica to send out the second mailing after January 4th, 2020 after the commission members have looked it over thoroughly and carefully.
