Approval of Minutes:  A motion was made to approve the minutes of the March 25, 2014 Organizational Meeting by William Morrison, seconded by Rob Ellison, and approved by a unanimous vote.

New Business 

Mailing to Homeowners:  A motion was made to approve the 2015 Proposed Budget for mailing to homeowners by William Morrison, seconded by Diane Janowsky, and approved by unanimous vote.   It was noted that the budget would stay the same as it was last year.

Included with mailing of the 2015 Proposed Budget is a letter from the HOA's lawyer, John L. Soileau, outlining the Board's policy that they will insure close compliance of our documents regarding violations and the fining and/or  legal action process.  A motion was made to approve the letter. The motion was seconded and approved by unanimous vote. It was mentioned that there are a series of 3 notification letters mailed a homeowner before the fining and/or legal action begins due to a lack of homeowner correction or response.  Also included with the mailing will be the Fall 2014 Newsletter noting that the next Community Yard Sale will be held October 25, 2014.

Drainage Ditch:  The drainage ditch running along the back of the houses on Cape Palace Drive and doing an elbow turn to foot the back of the townhouses  has begin to be populated with plants such as reeds, dock weed, etc. growing in the standing water.  The question was raised about dredging to remove them as they may block of the flow of our development's run-off water.  The Property Manager will contact Aquatic Systems to inspect the area.  It may be that weed killer could be applied to the plants.

Next Meeting:  It will be the Annual Budget Meeting at the Crossroads Church (Corner of Lake Washington & Croton) at 6:30 on October 20, 2014.

Adjournment:  A motion was made to adjourn the meeting at 1:52 pm by Diane Janowsky, seconded by Rob Ellison, and approved by unanimous vote.

Respectfully Submitted,
Diane Janowsky, Secretary
