Angel Flewelling, President of the Exchange Clubs for the District of South Carolina, and Chad Cox, Principal of the Whale Branch Middle School, presented the concept of Exchange Clubs to the Board and solicited our support, including financial assistance, career presentations, and community participation. The board agreed to publicize their request to the community; Bob All expressed interest in presenting his experience as an entrepreneur to the students. See attached brochures.
The Board discussed methods for dealing with speeding vehicles in the community. Janice Powell will explore various “traffic calming” solutions and report at the next meeting.
Leading a discussion on drainage easements, Janice Powell alerted the Board to the potential problem of undersized and blocked or partially drainage culverts. This is a Roads Commission issue and will be referred to them.
Zach Curry brought up the issue of broadening the community’s use of a property management company to include at least covenant and restrictions notification and enforcement. Bob All, who works with most of the communities in the area, will review existing services and costs.
The Board also discussed the need for a funded reserve to include common area maintenance, dock repair and replacement, and road maintenance. Currently the SPPOA has a reserve in excess of $100,000. Analysis is needed to determine if this amount is sufficient or needs to be increased.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:00 PM. The next meeting is scheduled for 6:30 PM on January 25 at Zach Curry’s house.
