REVIEW AND ACCEPTANCE OF MINUTES FROM LAST MEETING
- PRESIDENTS REPORT – Brooks Myers Reported
- Board has settled into a routine and established internal operating procedures
- We have mailed out letters to one lot owner who is in violation of existing covenants. Legal action will be taken on the complaint.
- We have an attorney’s office (Orten, Cavangh, and Holmes) on retainer to address some of our more pressing such as the bridle easements, what rules/regulations apply to our HOA given our voluntary dues, concerns about the HOA-owned property, Mineral Rights. We will work primarily with one of their associates who is comparatively inexpensive ($210/hr)
- We established a committee to look into the bridle easement issue. Joe Kistle and Lynn Little have agreed to find out the pros and cons of keeping or removing them.
- The Bylaws/Covenants committee has begun developing detailed processes and procedures the Board will follow in revising bylaws/covenants, responding to complaints, etc.
- We have responded to many requests for information regarding lots, reviewed and approved requests for construction, and mailed out variance request ballots
- Wayne Boote is still officially on the Board but not participating, limiting the number of people available to accomplish Board work. Unless Wayne agrees to resign we can’t fill his position until the June membership meeting.
- E-mail issues have limited Carol’s participation, but we have resolved this.
- The lot the HOA owns isn’t used for anything, but it is a financial burden (insurance)
funding constrains the amount of help we can get from a lawyer
- This limits the Board’s ability to address complaints
- We will discuss with the lawyer several options to help resolve this
- Increase dues
- Make dues mandatory
- Sell the lot the HOA owns
- Meet with the lawyer to begin addressing our highest-priority issues
- Get some answers regarding the bridle easements
- Begin revising Bylaws/Covenants
