Also, Medora shared that it is again time to send out letters to homeowners requesting a water meter recertification take place this summer. Letters will be sent to homeowners who have not had their meter recertified for five or more years.
Under Other Business, Jim shared information he had gathered regarding propane service with Ferrellgas and they provided him with three options:
� Pre-buy: $1.79/gallon; can pay all at once or can now pay monthly but commitment required
� Cost + pricing with a cap (pricing not yet set)
� Cost + with no cap (this cost is running at approximately $2.44/gallon currently)
Ferrellgas will not set pricing until August or September. Also, they will waive the hazmat fee if asked. Medora reported that Amerigas provided her with rate information for next year, and The Commercial Property Group mailed that information to homeowners. Their Community Pricing is currently $1.75/gallon. Tom Valicenti had spoken with Schrader Propane and their pricing is currently $1.69/gallon. They also explained to Tom that if a propane tank is not owned by a homeowner, it is illegal to have another propane company fill it. Further, Tom has researched the cost purchasing a propane tank, and he has found that a 1,000 gallon tank is approximately $2600. Medora has been told that if a company cannot provide proof of a lease agreement, then somebody else can fill the tank. Medora will consult with the association�s lawyer, Paul Sachs, to confirm this. Ultimately, the board will continue to compile information from the different propane companies and share with all homeowners.
Additionally under Other Business, Jim shared that he would like for the Board to establish annual goals, using the Neighborhood Comment Sheets as a guide. All board members agreed to compile and email ideas in the next two weeks.
