The meeting of the Board of the Dakota Ridge Homeowners Association was called to order at 1:00 p.m.

The first order of business was the Financials report. The proposed Budget for 2009 was presented and reviewed. It was noted that there will be an increase in the Administrative fees. After some discussion, the Board asked for $5,000 be taken from the Road Maintenance line item and be added to the Sign Acquisition line item for road signs to be replaced in the upcoming year. The Board also asked that the landscaping be bid out this year. All changes will be made and the Board will be emailed with the updated 2009 Budget proposal for approval.

The next order of business was under Other Business. Steve Hoffman, owner of Lot 17, was on the Agenda and present. Mr. Hoffman addressed the Board concerning complaints from the neighborhood about exterior lights being on at his residence all night. He explained to the Board that leaving the lights on are a safety issue for his household and also that the DRHOA covenants are ambiguous concerning exterior lights. The Board agreed that the intent of the covenants are that no exterior lights are to be left on all night and a precedent has been set in the past supporting that intent. The Board will take his request under advisement and table it until the next meeting.
Mr. Hoffman also asked why a neighborhood directory was rejected. The Board felt because of a directory failing in the past and administrative costs that they would not pursue doing a directory. Mr. Hoffman also stated that he was available to the Board for any help on the ongoing road project as he had been part of the walk thru in the fall with Board members.

There was no ARC update or Water update.

Tim DePuy presented a preliminary funding plan for the road paving project for the Board to review. The Board will take the plan under advisement and table it until the next meeting.

The Board has directed Tomas Stone to engage the local banks for funding of the road projects, Brent Langevin and David Zedeck to talk to Connell for final bid numbers and Medora to present the paving project in a final form to present to the members in the Annual Meeting packet.

The next meeting is meeting on February 12, 2009 at 12:30 p.m. at board room of The Commercial Property Group, LLC

There being no further business the meeting was adjourned.

Respectfully submitted,

Stephanie McDonald
