Board Meeting of July 15, 2013
Board members present: Al Truesdale, Ed Pardue, Gary Swank, Christa Emminger, and Alan Daigle. Margaret Bukossy joined the board for a discussion of BJWSA water for the community.
Al Truesdale called the meeting to order at 6:05 p.m. the home of Gary Swank. Al then introduced the agenda, which was approved.
Minutes of the board meeting of April 14, 2013 were read and approved.
Margaret Bukkosy visited the Board meeting and informed the members that she has been investigating the possibility of bringing BJWSA water service into Seabrook Point, partly because of the excessive millage rate we pay for fire protection. BJWSA is currently attempting to bring water to the Stuart Point community, but only if the community approves by a 51% margin. BJWSA has given estimates regarding what water service to Seabrook Point would cost. In October or November there will be a community-wide meeting of Seabrook residents to discuss obtaining a $500K block grant to bring water to Seabrook (not Seabrook Point). Margaret related that she will continue to investigate the topic, and will keep the SPPOA board informed. Al Truesdale thanked Mrs. Bukkosy for her efforts.
Ed Pardue presented the May and June 2013 Financial reports from Bundy. Ed presented a recap of income and expenses for that period. . . . Ed’s report was approved as received.
ACC Committee Report and Review (redacted to protect privacy)
Installation of security cameras: After requesting property owners to express their opinions regarding the installation of entrance and dock security cameras subsequent to the Annual Meeting, the Board has received minimal interest in the topic. Prior to the 2013 Annual Meeting, a majority of property owners had approved camera installation. However, during the Annual Meeting those in attendance expressed misgivings about the process; a decision was made to table the project, and to try to gauge continuing community interest. Given subsequent minimal interest, the Board voted to suspend the project indefinitely.
Clean-up, fix-up date: The board decided to set the date as Saturday, Oct. 5th. Signs need to be painted and some bushes need to be removed. We also need to have a tree service limb up trees that are creating excessive canopies over the roads. One decorative post at the community dock also needs to be replaced. Gary Swank is preparing a post for replacement.
Report from Restricted Covenants Revision Committee– Christa reviewed our covenants with the attorney last month. He thinks the Seabrook Point covenants, ACC rules, and by-laws need to be one integrated set of documents. Christ’s committee is working to merge the nine different documents we currently have. The attorney will then finalize the merged document.
There was no new business to bring before the board.
With no further business before the board, the meeting was adjourned at 7:35 p.m.
The next meeting of the board will be September 16th at 6 p.m. at the home of Alan Daigle.
Gary Swank, SPPOA Secretary
