A meeting of the Board of Directors of the Dakota Ridge Homeowners Association was called to order by President Sharon Pace at 8:05 am on March 8, 2018 in the Board Room of The Commercial Property Group, LLC at 3001 S. Lincoln Ave., Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
Tomas recapped the Association’s fiscal year to date financial results as of February 28, 2018. The Association’s overall income and expense from operations compares favorably to the budget by approximately $58,000. The bulk of this savings comes from snowplowing, road maintenance, water system repairs and water system operations each being substantially under budget.
With regard to the water system, Mary Andre, with CDC, presented the Board with a final report on the Chlorine Contact Basin Project. Mary explained that the report will be submitted to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment for review. Simultaneously, the project, with two bid alternatives (one with reduced pump capacity and a second with variable speed drives for the pumps), will be advertised for bids. Tomas made a motion to submit the proposal to the appropriate regulatory authorities and to move forward to put the project, inclusive of the bid alternatives, out for competitive bids. Jim seconded the motion. The motion was unanimously approved.
No action was taken with regard to Roads but Sarah reminded the Board that annual crack sealing will occur this summer.
No action was taken with regard to ARC.
Under Ongoing Projects, Sarah will re-send the email invite to board members to conduct a trial run of Next Door, a software application which facilitates communication among members of a community such as Dakota Ridge. Regarding fire mitigation, Sarah will bring the same information to the annual meeting as was shared last year. As far as cyclists in the neighborhood, Sarah will work with the Routt County Riders executive director, reminding the organization that Dakota Ridge is private property and to be respectful of this.
Regarding other matters, discussion ensued regarding a letter that was sent to the Board which expressed concerns that one association road was not always being plowed after snowstorms. The Board asked Medora to reach out to the Association’s snowplow contractor to ensure all association roads are being plowed, and then follow up with the homeowner.
The next Board meeting will occur immediately following the conclusion of the annual meeting on March 22, 2018.
The meeting was adjourned at 9:00 am.
