Butch VanGraafeiland made a motion to approve the January 20, 2016 Organizational Meeting minutes.  Mary Dillon seconded the motion and the motion passed by unanimous voice vote.

Treasurers Report:
Sam reported that the refurbishing is with the budget constraints.

Unfinished Business:
Rec Room/Pool Refurbishing Update:

Rec room - Bill reported that we’re on schedule and the meeting was held so owners could see the progress.  There will be a final “punch” list before the final payment is made.  We’re also getting a bid on building a covering over the front door which will also come from Reserves.   Cameras will be installed in the clubhouse to deter any vandalism or damage; cameras will also be installed outside in the pool area.  Andy Cherry has offered his expertise in researching the best cameras to purchase.
Pool refurbishing – Kathy reported that the pool is also on schedule and will be open for use no later than Mother’s Day weekend.  

It again was stressed that it’s very important for owners and unauthorized persons stay out of the construction site.

New Business:
Board Change:  Bill announced that long time Board member, Bob Philbrook, has sold his unit and resigned from the Board.  The Board and owners thank him for his years of service to the community.

Reserve Study:  The bid for the Reserve Study was presented to the Board members for review.  Sam felt that since the clubhouse and pool have just been refurbished, it’s not necessary to spend the funds at this time.   The issue has been tabled and there’s a possibility it can be incorporated in the 2017 budget.  

Committee Reports:
None at this time

Future Projects (in order of priority):

  1. Pool Refurbishing:  Will be completed in May.
  2. Rec Room/Bathroom Refurbishing:  Will be completed in May.
