Also in Attendance: Phil Mahr, Association Manager


Members Absent: John Hamilton (President), Barbara Powell (Vice-President)


The homeowner forum was called to order at 6:00pm



Peter/A building - wanted to thank Phil for repairing air handler in A building.


Carlos/E building – Thanked Phil for keeping the A/C on as it was a very hot the week prior to HOA meeting.


Peter/A building – brought up issue of widow hangings being “ugly, tacky and inconsistent.”  Phil stated there are some homeowners who have already been fined.  Phil stated he will walk property and issue fines for the homeowners who are not in compliance.


Homeowners brought up issues with the new light bulbs that have been replaced, having different brightness levels and not being uniform throughout property.  Phil will go around property to look for lights burnt out to replace and is ordering news bulbs to switch out with homeowners current bulbs.


Several homeowners remarked about our new lawncare provider Snappy Lawn Care and asked about Jose.  Comments were made that Snappy is doing a great job in Jose’s absence.  Snappy filled a hole in courtyard near E Building and did reseed patches of grass that didn’t take well.  Joe stated he was happy they filled the hole and Phil confirmed that Snappy did go through and reseed.


Diane/A building – Commented on grass reseeding and sprinklers on which seems excessive and on to much of a watering schedule.  Also, that dogs and people should not be allowed on grass during the reseeding process.  Idea was given about putting up signs.  Phil will look into idea of signs and/or way to prevent issues during reseeding.


The Board of Directors Open Meeting was called at 6:17pm.


Motion was made by Joe Snyder to approve the September minutes as written.  Seconded by Ty.  Approved.


Financial Report, presented by Rhonda Powell; noted 97K in bank holdings. He also reviewed highlights – monthly, YTD budget variance report.

•         Reserves - Rhonda expressed concern again that we needed more of an austerity perspective on new spending. If you subtract the $50K CD (homeowner deposits) from the “reserve” accounts there only remains approximately $35K . This might not cover a real emergency, nor is it enough to maintain our infrastructure.
