Walnut Creek Community Meeting News August 8, 2019
The August Community Meeting was called to order by Ken Emerson, Board President, at 7:00 pm on August 8, 2019, at the Walnut Creek Clubhouse. Board Members in attendance were Joe Blount, Gary Droege, Ken Emerson, Halley Freeman, Jacqui Maiseroulle, Tyler Unsell and Scott Eiken. Howard Matteson and Siobhann Williams were unable to attend.
Ken Emerson welcomed all guests and the Board approved minutes for the July monthly Board Meeting.
Board Members approved a request from the Administration Committee for continuation of privilege suspensions for those violating restrictive covenants.
Ken Emerson reported that, with help from some homeowners, he had installed the majority of the new signage aside from a few of the directional signs that would be posted soon. He also advised that the accountant has confirmed that she has everything she needs and the taxes should be ready soon.
Ken Emerson also confirmed that the siltation project at the bridge had been successfully completed. Due to the weather being exceptionally cooperative the project was finished quickly, in a matter of days, and under budget to boot!
A special thank you to Ken, who volunteered his time and skills to operate the heavy equipment required to remove the silt and to the Platte County Road District for hauling away between 110 -120 truckloads out of the area to a nearby construction site as fill dirt. All that remains is some fine grading and seeding.
The Board discussed the need to make the official Walnut Creek Homes Association website more smart phone friendly.
Clubhouse: A skylight in the clubhouse developed a leak with the storm on July 10th but has not leaked with subsequent storms. The bid to repair/re-flash it is estimated at $750. Also, at some point in the near future the wood floors in the clubhouse will need to be refinished one last time with an estimated cost of $1,000.
Community Relations: The Labor Day Cookout is scheduled at the pool on Sunday, September 1st with a rainout date of Monday, September 2nd.
Finance: We are currently under budget compared to last year!
Grounds: The pond maintenance/treatment is being handled per usual. The playground borders at the park need to be re-installed and the volleyball area requires a couple loads of sand. A new drag will be purchased for maintenance of the ball fields.
Pools: It’s that time of year again so the pool schedule will change with the start of the new school year. Once school starts the pool will be open through Labor Day on Fridays from 4pm-9pm, Saturdays from noon-9pm, Sundays from noon-8pm and Labor Day from noon-8pm. Thus far, the pool cost is coming in 43% under budget!
The meeting was adjourned without objection.
