Grounds Report:

Mike Bridges gave the grounds report since Lisa Rogers was not there.  The Banez Brothers brand new tractor mower broke.  Mike Bridges loaned the boys his tractor mower, allowing them to finish the mowing.

The retaining wall over on the path to Mears Middle School off Eshamy Bay has been completed and looks good.

The 100th Ave fence is completed and looks good; the stain is covering both the old and new planks so the color looks even.

Architectural Committee Report (ACC):

Mike Bridges reported several roofs have been approved.  

Wiley Brooks will be painting his house a deeper shade of blue but already approved and no need for an approval letter.  The color is just about the same as what the house is right now.

Mike Bridges has walked the grounds and all the split rail fences are in good condition.  

Kay Waitman volunteered and requested to install a perennial bed at Admiralty Bay and Bayshore Street.  Currently, a sign is present with no flowers and she feels it can be enhanced with some perennials and small shrubs for winter interest.  The board agreed it was a good idea and to go for it.  She will make a proposal to the Board for approval.

Kay Waitman asked if the Board was still in agreement to install a little “free library”.  Mike Bridges reported the Rotary Club he belongs to has made arrangements to make 5 of the little “free libraries” and two have been set aside for ABOA.

Manager’s Report:

Deanne reported as she drove through the neighborhood before the meeting it all looked pretty good but noticed several lawns that needed tending to.  Dandelions were the biggest hint that nothing had been done for quite a while.  Her office will be sending out letters for tending to the lawns.

We have had nothing substantial showing up lately.  Trash cans are still our biggest offenders.

Mark Smith moved to approve the Grounds, Architectural Committee and Management reports.  Kay Waitman seconded the motion.  Motion carried.

Welcoming Committee:

No one has moved in so nothing has gone out.

Kay Waitman reported on the ABOA Picnic.  She talked with Lisa Rogers and got lots of good information and historical knowledge.  Kay stated the average attendance is someplace between 20 and 40 people.  She has rented a 48” grill, tables and chairs from Party World.  They have printed up flyers that will be placed on each homes door next week.

Old Business:

House Rules will be redone by Mark Smith.  He had recommended a few changes and gave the whole set to Ginger Scoggin for her input when she was on the board.  He will check his computer and see if he can find them or he will redo the house rules.
