The meeting of the Board of the Dakota Ridge Homeowners Association was called to order at 12:30 p.m.
The Financial Report was presented by Medora Fralick. It was noted that water usage is down. Water income is lower, but water operations expenses are also down. Three CDs mature at the end of August. The money will be kept liquid until the final road repair cost is determined.
Under the Roads report, Tim DePuy asked that Connell Construction also be contacted for the road repair bid.
Under the Water Report, Medora stated that the letters for the water meter re-certifications are ready. A credit of $125 will be allowed for each owner for the meter recertification. The letters will be sent out Friday to the specified owners for this year.
The Covenants and Guidelines are in the final revision process. They will be sent out with the Annual Meeting packets for association approval.
Under Other Business, a lot owner suggested having the hay cut in the subdivisionís meadows and using the funds for capital improvements. After some discussion, the Board agreed not to pursue the suggestion.
Medora was directed by the Board to check lot 17 for compliance with the approved landscaping plan on record.
Carl Marbach, owner of lot 46, was present to appeal an ARC decision that does not allow for the playhouse on his lot. He asked for a variance to let the playhouse remain. Pictures were presented. Carl was asked to leave the meeting so his variance could be discussed and a decision given.
After discussion, David made a motion to implement a $2,500 fine for not submitting plans for the playhouse to the ARC prior to building the structure with the fine being mitigated by planting a comparable dollar amount of landscaping around the playhouse so as not to be seen from the south entrance. The playhouse will also be removed from the property if the property is sold unless the new owners get approval for the playhouse to remain from the current board unless the property is handed down to a family member. The motion was seconded by Brent. The motion was approved unanimously.
Carl was informed of the decision and will be sent a letter for his signature stating the same.
The next meeting is meeting on September 11, 2008 at 12:30 p.m. at board room of The Commercial Property Group, LLC
There being no further business the meeting was adjourned.
