June 2011 Seabrook Point POA Board Meeting

Monday, June 20, 2011

Present: Al Truesdale, President, Alan Daigle, Vice-president, Gary Swank, Secretary, Lorrie Smith, newly elected board member. Christa Emminger was absent because of illness.

Meeting was called to order at 6:05 pm at the home of Alan Daigle.

Al Truesdale presented the agenda for the meeting. The agenda was approved.

The minutes of the April 11, 2011 meeting were approved as read.

Alan Daigle reviewed the financial report from Bundy for the period ending May 2011. The report was approved as presented.


It was noted that we have four accounts past-due. [Name removed] home is now in foreclosure, so collection of that account is probably not feasible. No more money should be spent in collection efforts for this account.

Last month, The Beaufort County magistrate found in favor of the SPPOA’s claim against (name removed], so the long over-due account should be paid shortly.

Report from the Covenants Revision Committee- Christa was out ill, so there was no up-date.

Roads Commission Appointments – Bill Waldron has withdrawn his name from nomination. The Board approved Joan Reid as a possible candidate.  Should she agree to serve she would have to be approved by the County Council. The Commission has submitted to USDA (the holder of our roads construction loan) an annual audit that profiles the racial/gender/ethnic composition of the Commission and of the Seabrook Point community.

Al had previously asked the secretary to send a letter to [name removed] asking him to remove the large piece of commercial equipment from his property, which is in violation of our restrictive covenants. This was done, and apparently the equipment in question has been removed.


It was noted that gravel needed to be added to the dock driveway, and Alan Daigle has put down some gravel in the worst spots. However, we will need a major replenishment this fall, probably 10 or 15 yards’ worth.

An invoice has been received from attorney Mikell, but no one has been able to identify what the charge is for. The invoice will be referred to Christa, who most often deals with Mikell on Covenant advisement issues.

[Name removed] wants to re-roof his home, replacing shingles with metal roofing, but has not yet received approval from the ACC.  He also plans to add a new porch, but must first receive approval from the ACC.

Alan Daigle reported that as a result of our mailing of the dock rules and use requirements, he has received about 10 requests for parking permits from property owners. A boat has been observed tied up at the community dock for about four days, in violation of the 24-hour rule. Alan plans to investigate, and if necessary, the community will have the boat towed.

The next meeting will be held on Monday, August 1st at 6 p.m. at the home of Al Truesdale

There being no further business before the Board, the meeting was adjourned at  6:55 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,


Gary Swank, Secretary
