Actions taken by the Board since June 12th meeting:
Old Business: The change in Trash pickup and recycle days went smoothly.
Possibility of a Dumpster be made available for large items to be discarded The Board is hoping this will be soon after the holidays. More to come on this.
Could rules be added to SVMHA web site? Update: Yes, it will be done but will have to wait until a final copy of the rules is printed. Board has been informed that a committee of six is working on the Rules and Regulations. This committee is working hard on streamlining and aligning to make them easier for the reader to find the information. The Board is expecting copies very soon.
Meet and Confer for January 8, 2015: It has been suggested that at our January Meeting/Chili dinner/election of new officers that Management will hold a question/answer session also at that time.
Capital improvement (entry gate system) management does have the right to pass through the costs. Several people attending objected to the way it was presented to the residents and would like to know ahead of time what is being planned for the future so they have the time to plan financially. They also would like clarification as to what management is required to do (notification, bids, and financial costs) Most residents understand the need to replace an old and outdated entry system but would like more advanced warning and possibly to confer before it is “dumped” on them with no notice.
Dog Park: Residents thanked Management for spraying the dog park for fleas which apparently had become a problem and it was quickly taken care of. They would like a second pass to get the eggs and larvae that was missed the first time.
Next Board meeting will be December 11, 2014 at 7 P.M. in the Clubhouse. This meeting will address HOA membership especially new arrivals to our Park. The meeting was adjourned at 8:00.
