Jared Lee and Bruce Stucky of Maranatha Bible Camp were present to discuss a request to install a security gate on the county road into Maranatha Bible Camp.

It would be more difficult and more expensive to secure each access from the county road into the camp. It is a dead end road and they allow Janice Schad an annual easement to cross their property by consent however her access is actually from the West.
