MINUTES OF BOARD MEETING – JULY 21, 2008
The meeting was called to order by President Flossie Dyer. All board members were in
attendance. Quorum established.
MINUTES: Minutes of the June 16, 2008 were approved as read.
TREASURER’S REPORT: Wendell Steiner reported Operating Cash is $34,250, and
Reserves are now $138,672. Maintenance was under budget $2,394.55, Utilities over
budget $250.03, and Administrative under budget $491.80.
Reserve CD’s are maturing next month and one issue we have is all of our funds are at
First Community Bank (FCB). We are working on rolling them over to different
institutions where they all can be FDIC insured. We should be up to $150,000 in
Reserves at that time. FCB has one time withdrawal without penalty. Accounts
Receivable were updated to reflect a couple of large payments received.
PROPERTY MANAGER’S REPORT: Two problems, pump and street flooding.
Street Flooding: Received 3 bids for drainage ranging from $4,600 to $11,000. Copies
e-mailed to the Board. Went ahead with Billy Sunshine Plumber for $4,600 which
Flossie negotiated down from $5,000. Pump: Had well digger out and worked with
Anderson Pump. Received 3 different bids from well digger and went with Anderson
Pump and L. M. Gaines. Lucked out there as well as Flossie negotiated down from
$4,500 to $4,000 and we were able to reuse existing pump. Anderson spent 1-1/2 days
checking out our entire irrigation system and replaced about 35 rotor heads and a couple
other heads. Wendell called and said power doing something funny. Sent electrician
out there and meter center on outside of building starting to deteriorate and fail. Had to
replace meter center in conjunction with Progress Energy and had it scheduled for about
$4,100. Mrs. Simpson of 6117, numerous pinhole leaks, need to replumb that section
and going upstairs to the bathroom which has been repaired previously. Bid for $1,200 e-
mailed to Board and need approval to move forward. Lots of water damage, minimal
repair to drywall. Car vs. Gate: Without further proof, going on eye witnesses that they
saw who did it, put a claim in with insurance carrier. Gate damaged and cracked. May
turn in to law suit as he denied it. Should forbid him from using back gate and take away
his gate card. Waiting for estimates and insurance adjuster to get back with us. Will
have to pay out of pocket and wait for our check again. Tom Enneking’s Building:
Woman thought she hit brakes but hit accelerator and took out two condenser units.
Mercury Insurance called and offered to reimburse for plants damaged also. Katherine
Taylor: Had to write that off. Discussed previously received $1,200, and now they are
paying. Correspondence from Mr. White: Two items (1) regarding lack of stop sign
in front of adjacent complex and (2) rain water fills the pool above the skimmer allowing
leaves and bugs to lay on the surface.
