Update on revision of the SPPOA Restrictive Covenants-Christa’s committee has been working to combine the many separate covenants and restrictions into one cohesive document covering all homes in the community, with appropriate enforcement for the covered policies. There is still much to be completed in this process. We will need 75% approval of the new covenant from the entire community, which will be one of the most difficult aspects of this new covenant.
Update from the Architecture Control Committee Kevin May reported [deleted material]. There will be three new homes under construction ultimately, assuming approval from DHEC and other governmental agencies.
Roads Commission (Special Tax District) Information- Frank Emminger gave a brief history of our community’s roads. We took out a loan of $475,000 from the Farmers Home Administration (USDA). The community deeded a 50 foot right-of-way to the Special tax district. A part of each homeowner’s tax bill is applied to this loan. We must keep two years’ funds in escrow against this loan. Frank outlined a couple of problems with the road. The major problem is at the entrance where the land is continually damp, and is allowing the asphalt to creep. There is also a drainage ditch erosion problem between 21 and 23 Stuart Street. Frank is getting estimates to put solid pipe in the ditch, to stop erosion and back-up of drainage water.

Boat dock security- The security posts have just been installed and a combination lock is being welded onto the chain. A letter is going out to all the homeowners outlining the new dock security procedures.
Preservative treatment for the dock-The dock is in need of a restorative coating and we currently have about 10 gallons of preservative stain on hand. We will use this balance to coat the floating dock. Bob All recommended that we investigate a product from Shield Products which has a 20-year guarantee.
Lots to be mowed-
The next meeting of the Board will be on July 14th at 6:30 p.m. at the home of Alan Daigle.
The board then voted for adjournment at 8:50 p.m., there being no further business.
