All homeowners except 7 have paid the 2024 dues.  Late fee invoices have been sent.  Two of those that have not paid have also not paid the 2022 and 2023 dues and continue to accrue late fees and interest.  These are being monitored and liens will get filed and legal fees assessed, which will also be charged to those homeowners.

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

wELL and Pump replacement for IRRIGATION SYSTEM:

▪ The new well was drilled in the desired location past the east end of the wall. They bored 200 feet deep and installed a 150-foot casing.  Mrs. Miller is removing some plants that we can use to conceal the above ground pump.

▪ The electricians are coming Monday (next week on 02/12/24).

▪ Then Water Works will come back to connect the pump and hook up to our irrigation system.


Heather suggested we accept the lowest bid of $175 to troubleshoot to identify why the lights do not work.

A question arose as to whether those are low voltage lighting and will determine if it is.


Supposed to start tomorrow.



Dexter sent an e-mail asking for a status update but has not received a reply.  He will follow up with a phone call.


Monday, March 11, 2024, at 7:00 PM at Cornerstone Church.  Jeanne has the letter drafted one, but one change is needed and will give it to Dexter to mail by Feb. 15th to insure everyone receives with 14-day notice.

All current Board Members agreed to serve as officers in their same capacity, unless someone new steps forward to fill one of the positions and gets elected as an officer.

We need to meet one week later, on March 18, to elect officers.



Do we really need to publish a revised Directory.  We did not budget for it in 2024.

Discussion was held about converting to a digital directory with security so only current homeowners could access it. 

Tera agreed to contact her neighbor that does this for a living to find out options, Dexter will contact a couple HOA management companies to see how they handle this, and Jeanne will likewise explore with the Bloom & Grow Society webmaster to explore how best to do this.

Adjournment – Dexter moved we adjourn, Heather seconded it. All Board Members agreed. The meeting adjourned at 7:37 PM.
