Owner Input:

  • Unit 914 asked that the RV/Boat Storage lot get cleaned up with the shrubs being cut back and that the stairwells get looked at soon as her stairwell is in dire need of repairs with nails coming out. 
  • Unit 406 stated that from March 2005 through September 2007 he has been harassed, his amenities suspended and shouting at his tenants. One of his tenants feel and was hurt from the stairwell being in disarray and all of this stemmed from a misunderstanding of nonpayment fees, which he had to eventually hire an attorney to fight. He wanted to ask the Board for a settlement to not move forward with his slander/medical lawsuit and demanded to be reimbursed for his attorney fees and costs of $1500 by April 7th. He produced many photos and reports to the Board. 
  • Unit 702 asked about the buildings getting pressure washed and the Board stated that this was on the upcoming agenda for discussion with a commercial company to complete this task. She also inquired about the carwash and where did this money go and who owned the equipment. Lynn stated that she looked into this and could not really give a good answer as to who owned the equipment and where did the money go. Lynn stated that the company she spoke with stated that there was not a lot of money to be collected, but that they did not share the expense or income with the association. Peter asked the audience if the majority wanted to continue to have the equipment here and it was overwhelmingly agreed upon to keep the equipment but to have the Board look into purchasing our own equipment and keeping the income. 

Presentation of 2011-2012 Board Members:  Since only five candidates submitted their names as a candidate for the seven vacant seats up for elections, there was no election. Lynn introduced the new Board in alphabetical order:    Peter Engel, Alfred Fassler, Kathryn Heisey, Angelo Laviano, and Hattie Martin. There remain two vacant seats on the 2011 Board. 

Adjournment: With no further business to be conducted, Peter made a motion to adjourn the meeting, Hattie seconded the motion and it passed unanimously. The meeting adjourned at 11:05 a.m.
