The below message is going out right now to the community via Reverse 911, part of our advanced warning strategy. Feel free to forward via email as you see fit. (It is written phonetically, per the needs of the software, so forgive the way it may read). The goal here is to make sure people call 911 for “emergencies” and (if they choose to leave), that they can call 211 for non-emergency assistance such as temporary shelter or food via our coordinating partners… 211 would route them to the Red Cross or other local volunteer organizations.
It is thanks to Dave Faigin that PUD was able to restore power to everybody so quickly yesterday when they came to re-route a line around the slide. PUD required an easement from Dave and he gave it. THANK YOU, DAVE!!!
8PM March 6th: The road conditions continue to worsen. When it is safe to get in and assess the roadway, we will immediately follow up with water run off management, then develop a short term plan for a temporary roadway. We need a break in the weather and a few dry days.
It is interesting to note that the entire community is stepping up and we are receiving donations from individual property owners west of the slide who are not being billed for a special assessment. Thanks to them for their help and concern - it is deeply appreciated! ALL special assessments collected now are greatly appreciated! Thank you, MIR Community! Earl Van Buskirk
In order to keep our contractor focused on the excavation and stabilization of the slide as well as mitigate costs, MIRCC is looking for volunteers to help install sediment traps and drainage features that will aid in the effort to keep the sedimentation from our work area from reaching the river.
Road Report for Monday 3/3/2014
There are now enough issues with the website that we need to do a major upgrade. The current website has served us pretty well for the last five years with an up time of over 99%.
I'll be working on creating a new website over the next month and hope to have something released in beta form by April 1.

10:30am 2/22/2014: Road is completely impassable. It is very difficult to even walk past the slide area. Feel free to send in your road dues as early as you like! Use your amount from last year as a guideline... No need to wait for your bill:
Please review the meeting minutes for information about what happened in a board meeting. Click on "Board Meetings" on the left navigation bar, and then choose "Minutes".
All 12 board members are responsible for road maintenance (see bylaw 4.1). If you have questions or concerns about the road, please do not hesitate to come to a board meeting or contact a board member.
1) Due to the confined space of our meeting room, and all the bodies we have to fit into it, please REFRAIN from wearing perfume and cologne to the meetings. Since flu season is not over yet, please also be very careful to cover your mouth and nose and basically keep all cooties to yourself - or even better, keep them at home.
2) Anonymous postings will be removed from this website. You are accountable for the information you post here. One exception: if you have a "Found" listing in the Lost & Found forum.
