The Board expressed thanks to Kevin Guy and Paul Tillotson for their work on the Park watershed. Thanks also to Paul Tillotson for mowing grass and maintaining the HOA lot behind his property. Resident Craig Pryor receives kudos for edging Park property abutting his property. P.K. Robinson trimmed and did edging around the Park after a recent mowing.
The tennis court is in the process of being refurbished. Bill Griffith has sprayed RoundUp on weeds and will repeat the application. P. K. Robinson will attempt to cut back very stubborn and tough vegetation.
P.K. Robinson will tackle the job of removing concrete from tires in the goal posts that were left on the Park two or three years ago and then dispose of the remains.
Guest Jamine Madison, who prefers to be addressed as Jamie, expressed interest in joining the Board. After answering her questions and showing her enthusiasm for Board activities, a motion to accept her as a Board member was made by Paul Tillotson and seconded by Kevin Guy with Board concurrence.
Jamie Madison volunteered to look into grants for park improvement, but said those funds, if approved, would be for the year 2020
Electronic Communication: E-mails have been gathered with residents’ requests as to the type of communication they would like to receive. All information is BCC. The HOA does not distribute homeowner’s e-mails.
Picnic Signs: Signs have been missing for two years and will cost $150 to replace the pair. Jim Bergeron will research this since past Board member David Weber recently dropped off items at his house and the signs may be among those things.
Picnic: The annual picnic is on Saturday, 17 August 2019 at Nevins Park starting at noon until 1400. The Board will provide Teriyaki chicken, pulled pork, utensils. Kevin Guy and Bill Griffith will provide drinks and Jim Bergeron will have buns ready for the meats. Residents are asked to bring a side dish. Guest speaker will be Jamey Bumgarner of the Tri Lakes Fire District. The Board agreed to allot $120 to send post cards to residents advising them of the picnic and the important message from Mr. Bumgarner about road clearance and Firewise related subjects. The motion to spend the $120 was made by Jim Bergeron and seconded by Jamie Madison.
The meeting was adjourned at 2016 so the Board could go into Executive Session.
The Executive Session ended at 2054 and the meeting was adjourned at that time.
