The Financial Report was presented by Medora Fralick. She reported that expenses are below Budget. Water revenue is down, but water expenses are also down.
Under Roads, Medora passed out information on bids from Native Excavating. Precision would not bid on the project. Native obtained bids from Steamboat Asphalt and Connell Construction and Connellís pricing was lower. Medora was directed to talk to Brian Len from NWCC requesting that there be a correlation of bid numbers to the NWCC report so the Board can better determine a course of action on how to pay for the work.
Under the Water Report Tim DePuy stated that the re-certification program for the water meters is successful. Medora reported that seven water meter re-certifications have been done and all are in working order. Tim suggested that the previously discussed excessive water use fine be presented at the Annual Meeting and the rest of the Board agreed.
Diane Pietig gave the ARC Report. A letter from a neighbor lot 47 pertaining to the pergola was received by the Board. After reviewing the letter, the Board agreed that the pergola is as appears on the ARC approved plans, is contained within the building envelope and the ARC guidelines were followed. The Board directed Medora to send a letter to the neighbor stating that the pergola is not a detached structure and is part of the approved architectural plan. Medora will present the proposed letter to the Board for approval.
Diane reported that the ARC met on August 19th. The building envelope change for Lot 43 was approved. A deck plan for Lot 23 was approved. The landscape plan for Lot 24 was approved. The owners of Lot 4 will comply with a letter from Medora to change their light at the entry of their drive that is not in compliance. Yampa Valley Electric is in the process of looping the electrical service in order to provide better service. Dead pine is be harvested at a cul de sac within the neighborhood, so heavy equipment is in use to accomplish this.
