The association is moving along well, we are five months into the year and at 30% of the budget spent. This will change however, summer has hit and the mowing contract will start moving money from the account. We should remain on track for the rest of the year.

Billing issues with the Bañez’s Brothers have been corrected. Cottonwood trees have been removed. The tree has been cut in about 6’ lengths (the base is a large base) anyone who wants to drive a pickup in and pick up the logs, cut and season them for firewood are free to do so. The bid from Happy Home Maintenance has been received and accepted for the replacement of the split rail fence. The split rail fence will be set in concrete and the cedar will be left to age naturally. Mike Bridges also got a good bid from them to sand, paint and stain all the signs at the entryway to ABOA. It was a good bid and Mike asked the board permission to go ahead with that project even if it was not budgeted for this year. Board told him to go ahead and do it since no volunteers stepped forward. Deanne reported she contacted the Muni regarding the sidewalk on Admiralty Bay by the cluster post boxes between Rocky Bay and Hogan Bay. Bill Rogers from the Muni Maintenance department left a message stating he has been out and yes there is a problem. He will try to get the work done this summer but can’t guarantee it will be done this year. It will be on his list and it will be done first thing next year if it is not done this year. Deanne also reported she called Parks and Rec regarding the tot lot at KFQD Park. She spoke with Josh Duran regarding the age, and shape of the equipment. Josh Duran admitted the lot needed the equipment updated but the community has to do it. The process is to go to the Community Council meetings and request the equipment be top priority on the Community Capital Improvement Plan. Kristen Taylor stated she would volunteer to recruit other homeowners with small children to attend the Community Council meetings until this happens. At this point it was recommended someone update Facebook with this information. Cheryl Stewart put mulch in the flower box at Ensign and Bayshore sign. Bañez brothers will help keep the vech vine from growing in the flower box.
