Members’ Meeting: Zimmerman introduced the featured topic, a Power Point presentation entitled “Cut Unnecessary Regulatory Burden” (CURB), produced by Bill Brush, member of the Tri-County Lake Administrative Commission (TLAC). It high-lights the burdens imposed on home and land owners, businesses and others by virtue of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s mandates relating to the latest Shoreline Management Plan (SMP) of Appalachian Electric Power Co. (AEP). He announced that a delegation representing the Association, Smith Mountain Lake Association, local governments and other non-profit organizations will meet with members of Congress on Oct. 25 to discuss the burdens and attempt to obtain relief from the mandates. A report of the results of that meeting will be posted on the Association’s Web site. Zimmerman concluded the presentation by answering questions from the 31 members in attendance.
