Old Business

Security cameras – Frank came to the meeting to address this issue. He felt that a decorative gate might be a better first approach. This gate could later be made functional by electronic means. However, a motion was made to kill the security camera proposal at this time. Motion was seconded, and with minimal discussion the motion was carried.

Clean-up fix-up date– October 12 has been finalized.

Covenant Revision Committee– A preliminary “wish list” of items the committee wants the attorney to include in the new covenants was created. The attorney will then create a rough draft for review by the committee. The committee will then approve or amend the draft for finalization by the attorney’s office.

New Business

Annual Fall Fling – The board set the date at October 26th.

Dock intruders during shrimp season– A motion was made by Alan to install a lock and chain suspended between two reinforced posts, with secured, non-duplicable keys to limit access to the boat ramp launch area. Ed seconded the motion and opened the floor for discussion. A vote was then taken and the motion passed unanimously. It was agreed that one key would be issued to each household, with a fine of $100 to replace the key. Alan will prepare a plan for roll-out of this security measure.

Tree canopy– Al hopes to meet with a tree service to have the overhead canopy raised to a legal minimum height of at least 14’ above the roadway.

The next SPPOA board meeting– will be held on Oct 14th at Al’s home.

With no further business before the board, the meeting was adjourned at 7:25 pm.
