Committee Reports

Administration:  New Fence Approvals must be submitted to the Architectural Committee prior to installment.  Such approval is only required for new fencing, not for replacement fencing that is being placed in a pre-existing fence line.

Clubhouse:  The Nest thermostats have reduced utility costs thus far by $176 over the previous year.

Community Relations:  The Easter Bunny will be present and presiding over an Easter Egg Hunt at the clubhouse on April 13th.  The annual neighborhood garage sale is scheduled for April 27th and will be advertised on social media and signs near the neighborhood entrances.  Spring Cleanup Day will be May 4th at the Clubhouse Parking Lot and is for resident only, identification will be required.

Grounds:  The Porta Potties have been delivered and placed outside the baseball fields for the upcoming season and over seeding of the community areas is set to occur in mid-April.  The playgrounds will be re-mulched once a supplier can be secured, there may be a delay as the current supplier’s supply has developed mold due to rains and flooding in the area.

Pools:  Required maintenance will be performed prior to the pool opening in May.  The committee looked into the cost of repairing the pool cover and found that it would be just as costly if not more expensive than replacement.  The committee is also planning to meet with the pool manager in preparation for hiring staff for the new season and adjusting the payroll budget due to the increased minimum wage from last year.

The meeting was adjourned without objection.
