  • There were RVs parked for longer than 72hrs.  Residents have been talked to and are now moved.
  • There audio timer on radio for the pool.  The radio will shut off at 10pm
  • Bandit mowing will weed and treat the crabgrass around the clubhouse.  They will also plant new flowers.
  • New trees at the main entrance are not doing well.  Powell tree services will trim them and cut them back and bag them to keep moisture to see if that will help them.  At east entrance, the tree died and will need to be removed.  Tree in the garden homes common area is dropping branches.  We will have them cleaned up.
  • Clubhouse fiberglass doors need to be sanded down and repainted. Budget $1000.  Don motions to approve any bids at or under $1000, Sara seconds.  All in favor, none opposed.
  • Coping around the swimming pool is in need of repair.  We have one estimate for $15,000 (Pleasant pools) and we looking for other bids.  We are looking to repair it in February. It is proposed that we wait on other capital improvements to be able to cover the pool. Don motions to defer rest of the capital improvements to 2021, and use carryover to pay for pool coping. Pat seconds.  All in favor, none opposed.
  • Political signs: A question came up if we can place political signs.  The board allows for temporary signs on private property (no signs in common areas) that will be removed in a timely manner.
