Treasurer Julie Orbanosky reviewed our budget and the possible reduction of HOA fees. The yearly budget will be covered by lower HOA fees and we will continue to have money to set aside for unexpected expenses. A motion was made and ratified to reduce HOA fees to $300 per year. A vote was taken and the new fees ratified unanimously.
The proposed budget for 2018 was presented, discussed and ratified unanimously.
Mark Turner reviewed grounds maintenance and the reduction of dues being made possible thanks to Mike Scally’s hard work getting quotes for landscape maintenance. Discussed updating the community perennial beds.
