HOA President’s Report

By: Ray Pratt

  

Congratulations to our new HOA President Dan McBroom and continuing Officers Lana Burson, Secretary and Phyllis Yale, Treasurer. John Rishel was voted Vice President. New Directors Jeanette Seale and Bob Golisek are welcome additions to the Board. Thanks to retiring directors Charles Weirauch and Dick Curtis for their service. 

 

We wanted to express our thanks to Marlene Lima for her many years of unpaid service as editor of The Messenger, so a plaque was presented to show the Park resident’s appreciation at the HOA Meeting.

 

The Board voted at the 1/5/2012 meeting to increase the charge for the Directory to $3.00 and to partially reimburse Tom Hines $1,350.00 for his guitar and associated equipment that was stolen from the Club House last spring.

 

Due to members concern about the Bylaws Article 5, section 4 requirement, that a member must renew membership by December 31 which impacts the voting at the Annual Meeting, The writer convened an Emergency Board Meeting 1/7/2012. Section 7 says that a list of members eligible to vote shall be made at least ten days before each meeting of members entitled to vote. The Board voted not to propose any Bylaw changes at this time.

 

The Methodist Church pickup of aluminum cans and newspapers from the laundry room is February 11 and 25th. Do not put magazines and books with newspapers.        

 

Next  HOA Board Meeting:  February 2 at 7 PM.

Next  HOA Members Meeting:  February 13 at 7 PM

 

 

 
              From the Manager’s Desk
                  By:  Tim and Lois  Sease

 

As I was entering the January lot rent checks, it became quite apparent that a small percentage of residents forgot that their new lot rent amounts were in place.   Before you write your February checks please make sure you know your correct rent amount.  Also, if you have not paid your Fire Tax please do so .  If you are not sure of this amount please call me.

 

I am requesting everyone to make sure that you have provided me with an emergency contact name and phone number.  All too often we have to scramble to find a family member or friend to notify about an ill resident.  It saves time when I can just go to the files and pull out the forms with this information on it.   Also an FYI:   In your cell phone, in the contacts list,  if you make an entry of I C E for "in case of emergency"  you put in a number for a family member to be contacted the police, fire and rescue people with be able to utilize this info and have family waiting for you at the hospital or come to you if needed.    This has been used nationally and is very helpful.

 

When you are entering the Community, please go slow and remember the speed limit is 15 MPH.  Not only are there residents walking, biking, in golf carts but our grounds crew is out there working and a speeding car puts them in danger also.  Remember no matter what you are driving or riding  to follow the rules for everyones safety.

 

I still find it necessary to remind people that there is no parking on lawns.  We have parking lots around the club house for cars and golf carts.  If you have guests, they can park in the club house parking lot, just let me know.  There are so many water lines under ground in your yard, and in the common areas of the Community.  Please be conscience of the rules.

 

Well, I guess that is all for now.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call or stop by the office.  If I do not have an answer for you, I will try and find one.

 

Happy Valentines Day!!

 

Tim & Lois

Bingo: Just a reminder that bingo card sales starts at 6:00 PM and stops promptly at 6:45 PM. No cards will be sold after 6:45 PM. Playing starts at 7:00 PM. Please bring small bills.

Clubhouse Use: If you use the clubhouse for a function, it is your responsibility to see that the tables and chairs are put back into place like you found them and to turn off all the overhead lights and fans when you are through.  

Feeding Critters By Retention Pond: If you are putting bread by the retention pond on Plantation Landings Drive, please stop doing this! This is encouraging unwanted critters into our park from the wooded area directly across the street.

Refuse Pick Up For Holiday Weeks: There seems to be some confusion when refuse pick up is when there is a holiday involved. If the holiday falls on a Monday or Tuesday, refuse will pick up on Wednesday and Friday and yard waste picked up on Saturday of that week. If the holiday falls on Wednesday, regular pick up will be Tuesday and Friday with yard waste picked up on Saturday. If the holiday falls on a Friday, regular pick up will be Tuesday and Saturday, and yard waste pick up on Wednesday. 

Solicitation In Park: No door-to-door solicitation is allowed in the park. If you see this being done, please notify the managers or one of the board members.
