MEETING AGENDA:  See attached.

EXECUTIVE SESSION: The Board of Directors did not meet in Executive Session in July.


The general meeting was called to order at 6:00 pm


There were no guests present.


Mr. Audet was present before the Board to discuss fence renewal staining. The recommendation was to use semi-transparent natural stain. Director Young stated our rules do not require the fences to be painted with a stain/color. Mr. Audet recommended providing residents with one or two choices of a colored stain. Director Young reported that none of the HOA fences have been treated at any time. All of the fences that are visible from the road are HOA owned fences. The HOA has approximately five miles of fencing in the community. The Board discussed what to do if a resident has a painted fence and we require a particular colored stain, and the option of using a matching colored stain over the painted fence.

Director Goodwin suggested we speak with a fencing contractor. Director Figel brought up the issue of harming vegetation along the fence line, what to do about dog wire fencing attached to the homeowner's side of the fence, and how to power wash fencing that is not accessible by truck. Mr. Audet stated the first re-do on the fence staining will be three years and than every five years after that. Director Shroder asked if there is a product that will cover up the painted fencing and make it look as natural as a stain. The Board asked Mr. Audet to provide a proposal.


Upon motion duly made and seconded, the Board unanimously approved the July
minutes as presented.


Mr. Littler presented the July 2017 financial report.

  1. We have collected over $7,200 in late fees.
  2. Fence maintenance needs a budget.
  3. Lighting maintenance is over budget due to needed repairs.
  4. Deep root fertilization has not yet been done. The Board asked when this will be done.
  5. The water restrictions are a good opportunity to save in watering costs given the rain.

Upon motion duly made and seconded, the Board approved the July 2017 Financial report as presented.

  1. There were only two closings in July.

ARR Report

Debra reported that one 2016 paint requirement was extended to 2017; she reported that this resident is not likely to paint their home this year. They did however partially paint and the body of the house looks okay. The Board agreed to reevaluate this home next year.

Ms. Pearson reported there are four, 2017 required paintings - of these one was given an extension and the other three have not yet submitted their ARR or started their painting.  The Board agreed that these homeowners should receive a letter the day after their deadline expires stating they have ten days to submit an ARR or the covenant enforcement process will begin to include fines applied.


Mr. Littler reported that there are several landscaping violations on hold. Several of the camper violations have closed. The home with extensive landscaping violations on Marsh Hawk Circle has addressed several of the violations issued, but there is still more work to be done. The home on Jute Lane with several violations has not yet addressed the majority of their violations to include landscaping issues. Collections

Director Figel reported that we have received payment for several accounts. All accounts that are over $500.00 have been sent to the attorney. The Board reviewed the A/R aging summary.
