2014 Annual General Meeting Minutes
February 22, 2014
Board Members present: Jim Lissner - President, Jenny Smith – Vice President, Peggy Pease – Treasurer, Dick Pease – Secretary, Sandy Lissner – Vocal
Members present: 28
Peggy reported an income of $5755.09, expenses of $7224.73 with an ending balance of $6742.42
Employment of Jesus: Jesus maintains the drainage ditches, picks up trash, helps with security by observing community activity, and his salary and expenses account for the bulk of board expenses.
Fallen trees: These are not the responsibility of the association or of Jesus, removal is the responsibility of the owner of the tree who will be notified and asked to reimburse the association for trees Jesus removes.
Membership: In 2013, 56 members paid dues, as of February 22, 2014 38 members have paid dues. The need for increased membership resulted in the formation of two committees, one for publicity, consisting of Peter Breitlander and Bob Churchill. The other will act as a welcome wagon to greet new residents and provide information on the association and useful businesses and phone numbers. This committee will be headed by Virginia Luckey and will consist of Virginia, Karen Arsenault, Bob Churchill, Marie Baily and Pat Leonardi. Andy Napier will set up a facebook page for association activities.
Stolen Lots: The number of lots stolen is up to 29; Diane Taylor has details.
Security: There was discussion of making parts of Surfside ‘gated’ with a record of cars that enter and leave, effect of crime on real estate values, the difference between the security association and the property owners association, and the lack of governmental support in the form of effective police forces
Orchard: We summarized the ongoing work to rejuvenate the orchard and eventually make it into a park useable by residents for gatherings as well as fruit production, Thanks to Juan Carlos for his continued efforts and to volunteers for their work
