BLM roles and responsibilities on member compliance- Andy Whitefield and Rueben Sanchez.
Both men spoke about the need to pay outstanding dues/fees owed before the BLM becomes involved which can result in termination of lease and right-of-ways. The BLM takes these issues very seriously and members can avoid problems by staying informed, involved and keeping their BLM/Road Assessment/Transmitter fees paid up to date as it is part of the terms and conditions of such lease and right of way.
: KAUA President Ken McLaughlin (E&T Sites ) read a prepared message to the membership present explaining that the revenues for road maintenance provided only by the current members in “Good Standing” can no longer sustain the needs to maintain the roads. President McLaughlin expressed that he must from now on represent the best interests of the members in good standing. Efforts to resolve the problem within KAUA have not been successful, therefore, after the next 30 days following the KAUA Annual Meeting, all members who are not in good standing for outstanding fee balances will be referred to the Bureau of Land Management for enforcement actions as provided in Article III Section 4 (3) of the Bylaws. KAUA-President McLaughlin asked if 30 days was fair in which there was no objection or further discussion.
Faron (Murphy Broadcasting) proposed to make an amendment to the Bylaws in Article IV Section 1.4(c)which would if approved by the membership modify the FM transmitter power limit for the Oatman / Goldroad sites.”
Ballots with this proposal will be sent out later this year by the KAUA Secretary on this matter to all members in good standing. See Article VI Section 2.(1) of the KAUA Bylaws.
