Firewise: Dave Betzler of the Firewise Committee gave a presentation of activities on the Ranch including chipping dates and that the Tri Lakes Fire District will receive a chipping machine this Friday, 14 June 2019. The Colorado State Forestry Service is offering a $1,000 matching grant and the matching part can be monetary or in volunteer hours. NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) is offering a $1,000 grant at sites of excellence. To obtain the grant, proof must be submitted of completed projects. A reporter from the Gazette newspaper contacted Dave Betzler about publishing an article about the Firewise community that will provide good publicity and perhaps provide an incentive for more people to mitigate. The right of way clearing that was planned for overgrown areas on Ranch roadways has been suspended by El Paso County due to negative input from affected residents along these roads. President Lonnquist suggested a meeting of RRR residents and the HOA at the local library about Firewise needs on the Ranch. She will compose a letter for Board members to read and give suggestions as needed about the proposed meeting. The president is also looking into insurance coverage for volunteers who help with chipping.
Clean Up: The cleanup on 07 and 08 June was a success, but two roll-offs were not completely filled. Board members were asked to ponder the idea of skipping a clean up for next year.
Chickens: Resident Jamie Madison asked for the change/Amend covenants Policy and that was sent on 05 June 2019.
Park/ Water Shed: The shed has been righted after being toppled during a severe wind storm. Board member Paul Tillotson has secured the shed using screws instead of staples that were previously in place. Board member Kevin Guy has made an assessment about needed repairs for the water system and P. K. Robinson made a motion to authorize up to $300 for needed supplies and the Board approved following a second by Paul Tillotson. The president thanked whoever was able to pick up the shed to its original position.
The tennis court was discussed and $1600 was approved for repairs after a motion by P.K. Robinson and a second by Paul Tillotson. Repairs include filling cracks, paint, line paint and equipment. Work is planned to weed, fill in cracks and paint during the month of July. The gazebo is also in need of paint and that will be addressed at upcoming meetings.
Electronic Communication: E-mails have been gathered with their request as to the type of communication they would like to receive. All information is BCC and the HOA does not distribute homeowner e-mails.
With no further business to discuss, the meeting was adjourned at 2024 and the Board went into Executive Session.
Executive session ended at 2042.
Meeting adjourned at 2043.
The next regularly scheduled meeting will be at 1900 on 08 July 2019 at the Tri Lakes Cares building, 235 Jefferson Street, Monument, Colorado.
