Secretary’s Report

        June 19, 2023, Board Meeting Minutes were e-mailed to board members on Saturday, 08/12/2023.  Dexter stated a correction to the minutes that the Fidelity Investment account is a Money Market account and not a CD as previously indicated.  Jeanne made a motion to approve, and Mike seconded the motion.  It was approved unanimously.

Treasurer’s Report

        Dexter, by phone, reported:

Account Balances as of 07/31/2023 were:

Checking:   $12,575   

Savings:   $13,534     

Fidelity (Money Mkt):   $30,538 

As of July 31, 7/12 (58%) of the year is gone, we have spent 86% of the budget.

In 3 months, we’ve earned $538 investment income by moving that money from Savings into the Money Market account.  This is great compared to the prior interest we’d been earning.

As indicated last month, excess expenses for Irrigation Repairs, Pressure Washing and Insurance, plus the HOA’s portion of the pond aeration County Grant totaled $9,249 spent over budget.  We must continue to watch expenses carefully.  While we may have to reach into savings, it must be kept to a minimum.

Jeanne made a motion to accept the Treasurer’s Report and Heather seconded the motion.  It was approved unanimously.

Wall lights are dependent on light sensor which is behind the wall in Donna's Landscape plants under trees.  Most likely poor sensor placement and a timer to replace the sensor was discussed for the future.
