The invoice for the rental of the school for the Annual Meeting was received by the accountant. However due to the Association being unable to access the reserved room on the night of the meeting the Board would like the school to be contacted to negotiate a decrease in the amount billed. Management will contact the individual in charge of the reservation and see if an agreement can be met. If this matter cannot be resolved in an agreeable manner the Board may consider a change of venue for next year’s meeting.
Mike Bridges moved to accept the Treasurers Report. Ginger Scoggin seconded the motion. Motion carried.
Architectural Committee Report (ACC):
An email was received from an owner requesting that the name on their account be changed for future correspondence. Management informed the owner that they would need to provide their office with proof of a change in ownership or name. Some discussion is had to as to why Management took this stance and if it would be possible for the Association to have a different policy regarding name changes. Management explains that it is an issue of giving proper legal notice to owners and also conveys information obtained from the attorney which explains how the matter should be handled. After further discussion the Board feels this information should be placed on the Association’s website so that all owners are aware of the steps needed to change a name on their account. The Board further decides that in condolence baskets will now be delivered when the Association becomes aware of a family’s loss.
House Rules: Postponed until the next meeting
