resident recently complained about a $2 interest charge on a late invoice

Ray asked if the Board had made a decision about raising or lowering the
dues according to the cost of living index.Rod reported that the cost of living
index was up +5% in 2008 and -0.3% in 2009, so the decision was to leave

Kitchin is concerned about the committee’s decision to address the
flooding on his property pending approval of funds at the association
meeting in February 2010.A survey
was done by the utility company but it wasn’t recorded and the flags are
now gone.Tod has a diagram if the
Road’s committee needs to use it, but he feels it’s probably best to kill
the weeds and do the survey again.Tod also says that Keith may be able to fix the problem on 241st
with asphalt and a tamper, but it may actually be necessary to hire a
professional.It was suggested that
the Water and Roads committees come up with a plan to assess the area
after another survey is done, and this time the survey should be recorded
with better diagrams and photos.This information will be forwarded to Mark Achzenick, head of the
roads committee, and Evan Lurton, head of the Water Committee.
