Presiding: Joline Lee
Present: Joline Lee, Frank Chuba, Jim Bergeron, Bill Martin, Phyllis Moore, Fred Lanyon, Lorrayne Hodge
Guests: Don Hodge
Meeting was called to order at 1900.
Minutes of the 07 February 2006 meeting were read and accepted as presented unanimously after a motion from Phyllis Moore and a second by Fred Lanyon.
Treasurer’s Report: Treasurer Bill Martin reported a bank balance of $16,322.70. He has received 62 voluntary donations from residents totaling $2215.00. There has been $296.39 in expenditures to date. Treasurer Martin also thanked Lorrayne and Don Hodge for their help in updating the mailing list for the Association newsletter since he received only two return envelopes from the Postal Service, as opposed to much larger numbers in past years.
Lorrayne Hodge made a motion to accept the Treasurer’s report. Frank Chuba seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.
Old Business: Fred Lanyon stated that he has attempted to contact Water Board President Reed-Polatty concerning the message board for notices, but has had no response. President Lee also said she has received no response from various telephone messages and e-mails. At this time, the Board agreed the message boxes are a dead issue and no further action will be taken.
No one on the Board has heard of any further burglary attempts on the Ranch, but it does behoove everyone to keep a watch on their neighborhoods.
President Lee sent an e-mail message to Michaele Duncan who has agreed to be involved with landscaping the Association Park, but there has been no response at this time. President Lee will try again since spring is “right around the corner” and the goal is to have an attractive Park for residents to enjoy this summer.
President Lee also thanked Lorrayne and Don Hodge for their help with the newsletter, as well as Phyllis Moore who assisted with stuffing, stamping and sealing envelopes.
There was discussion about the lightness of ink on the labels, but the Postal personnel said they had no problem with it. There was also discussion about the labels having last names first versus first names first. Also mentioned was leaving off the words “or resident” after the addressee- Bill Martin felt it was a good idea and contributed to fewer letters being returned since the letters were forwarded to the intended recipient.
Frank Chuba will contact Tri-Lakes Printing to obtain an updated list of addressees on the Ranch since the current one has names of residents in Shiloh Pines and Sundance Estates.
The tennis court was mentioned by Bill Martin. He said that a man from Palmer Lake mentioned to him in the past that grants wee available for improving tennis courts, but at that time Bill felt there were strings attached, i.e., allowing anyone to play tennis, not just RRRHOA members. No one on the Board is familiar with writing grants, or where to look for specifics such as tennis courts. Jim Bergeron stated he will ask Tri-Lakes Cares (TLC) Executive Director Judith Pettibone for advice since she has obtained over $150,000 in grant money for the new TLC building.
New Business: Jim Bergeron suggested a donation of $100 to the Tri-Lakes Fire Department as a way of thanking them for the use of the building for meetings. Frank Chuba made a motion to accept the suggestion, it was seconded by Fred Lanyon and passed unanimously.
With no further business to discuss, the meeting was adjourned at 1930 on a motion by Phyllis Moore and seconded by Fred Lanyon.. The motion carried unanimously.
The next meeting will be at 1900 on Monday, 10 April 2006 at the Tri-Lakes Fire Station.
