Old Business:

-Pond #3- Jerry Fowler, the Neighborhood Coordinator with the City of Owasso,
met with the board members last Wednesday, December 2nd,to discuss the issues of
pond #3. He brought along Roger Stevens of the City. The consensus of the
meeting was “it was a waste of time.” The city is giving us the same answer they
have in the past. Fixing the pond is our responsibility since it is private property,
but we can’t do anything because it is the city’s storm water pond.
-We discussed potentially draining the pond and dredging the sediments out.
While the pond is lowered, we would fill the hole in the drain the city added last
year to raise the water level back to where it was. Since the gate is falling in, we
would take it out and expand the pond to allow a more stable sloping bank.

-V.P. Election:
Nominee: Paul Daniel. 8 votes for, unanimous. Congratulations Paul for being
the V.P. for 2010.

New Business:

-Christmas Light Contest: Motion made to have a sign placed in the winner’s yard,
with a gift cards given to the top three homes: $75, $50, and $25 respectively.

-Thoughts for next year: Decorating the entrance at Christmas time and giving out
yard of the month awards.
