November 17, 2015
The annual meeting of the WPOA was held on Tuesday, November 17, 2015 in “The Barn” at Grace Community Covenant Church. President Cherryl Steben called the meeting to order at 7:06 PM. In addition to Ms. Steben, board members, Phil Harlan, Larry Rus, Dick Fankhauser, Linda Liu and John Cusick were present. A total of 15 property owners were present, not constituting a quorum.
Members were encouraged to sign in and to also provide their emails for future notifications and information.
MINUTES: Minutes of the previous board meeting were not read but were approved by the board members.
TREASURER’S REPORT: John Cusick handed out copies of the Treasurer’s Report: the Profit & Loss Budget vs. Actual and the Balance Sheet. He stated that seven property owners have not paid their dues to date. He went over some categories with dollar amounts projected to 12/31/15. He then asked if there were any questions. No action was taken on the Treasurer’s Report. Linda Liu reported that she tried to call all of the property owner’s whose dues remain delinquent. Some phone numbers were disconnected and she asked for call backs where there were answering machines. She will continue to try to reach them.
PRESIDENT’S REPORT: Ms. Steben began her report by announcing that she was resigning from the board at the end of 2015. She explained that she has served on the board for seven years, six years as president, and it was time to do other things, including a new job.
She provided an overview of the Board’s recent activities, including a work party in July to clean up the area in and behind the Juniper shrubs north of Wilderness Drive near Boulevard Road. She briefly discussed burglaries and property damage and directed members to the contact information in the newsletter for various needs. She also reported that she has obtained two bids for replacement of the Boulevard Road entrance sign. However, we are holding off doing that work until tree management costs for the year are finalized. There was some discussion regarding common area maintenance and the possibility of private ownership of the common areas. It was concluded that it could be done but would be nearly insurmountable.
Proposed 2016 Budget – The budget was presented and changes from last year were discussed. One change was the inclusion of an additional lot that increased the budget by $175.00. The budget was approved as presented.
John Cusick recognized Cherryl for all of her hard work for the Association and presented her with a gift from the board.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:30 PM.
Dick Fankhauser, Secretary
