Motion made, seconded, vote taken and passed to request special HOA meeting. Meeting will take place between Jun17 – Jul17, date and time will be announced.
Budget Update – provided by treasurer, John Ryan.
Designated Road Fund Proposal – Board suggested initial transfer of $60,000 to a separate account at our bank. This will be money designated for road maintenance and cannot be spent on anything else without a majority vote by the community at an HOA meeting. It is the intention of the Board that each fiscal year future Boards will determine the amount needed for a contingency/reserve fund and additional funds will be deposited into this account. The purpose of the Road Fund will be to maintain the roads and, as the fund grows, to offset either fully or partially, future assessments for road improvements, as voted on and approved by the community.
Updated By-Laws – revised By-Laws were approved by a majority vote of members present and are effective immediately, posted on web site.
