Services had to be called out to the property for an emergency service due to rags being wrapped around
the motor. It was stated that someone in the community is using Clorox wipes or Scrubbing Bubbles
wipes and then flushing them down the toilet, which creates this problem of them getting stuck in the

Skip Sigh also requested that management send violation letters out for various violations. Bulk trash
pick up was discussed. If homeowners have large items they are to call Waste Management for this “bulk
pickup”. Two dead trees were removed from the community at two different Units. Voting for the
Annual meeting was discussed and if any Unit owner is delinquent, their vote does not count. Board
stated that 31 of 110 homeowners could not vote. Discussion was made regarding the letter the Board of
Directors sent to all homeowners regarding delinquencies in the association.
The Maintenance Chair- Mike Cherup talked about the cost of having the attorney send out letters to the
delinquent owners. Board discussed that some of these homeowners were upside down in their mortgage.
One homeowner refinanced and never made a payment after financing. Banks are not pushing forward
with taking over the foreclosures. Some homeowners asked if there were any services that are provided
by the association that could be cut out to these homeowners. Another question was asked if the taxes are
being paid by these delinquent homeowners. Five or Six Units have tenants in the Units but are not paying
their assessments. Jason Bates will get a letter together for management to send to the tenants advising
them that they will be evicted if the Unit owners (landlords) do not pay their assessments. The Board
would like to set up a meeting with these tenants at Exclusive Property Management to discuss the rental
policy in the association. The Board stated that the minority of the community is paying for the majority
of the community. Litigation update was that the Board is still optimistic about the litigation. The
litigation is in a holding pattern at this time. Settlement discussions are private and can not be discussed.
MOTION was made by Mike Cherup to accept the proposal for the yearly audit from Accountant A. John
Bono. MOTION was seconded by Ralph Chiocco and passed unanimously.
Homeowners Forum- Homeowners are concerned about this delinquency problem in the association.
One homeowner asked if there are any items on the budget that can be cut to help with this delinquency
problem. The association runs a pretty tight budget but they will have to keep all suggestions in mind. One
homeowner requested that the minutes of the meeting be sent out to all homeowners since the minutes
were not being updated on the website. MOTION was made by Jason Bates to send out the minutes of all
Board Meetings starting with the minutes of the January 26, 2009 meeting. MOTION was seconded by
Ralph Chiocco and passed unanimously. Board discussed changing the documents but the association
will need around 100 % approval from the association to do this.
