Jason followed up that there have been no more complaints regarding unrestrained dogs, probably due to weather.  Sharon McDermott reports a problem with a neighbor allowing their cat to roam free is still continuing.  Cat is causing property damage.  Letter will be sent to neighbor in contempt.

No Holiday trim at Entrance due to an electrical problem at the site.  Jason is to have the situation investigated and repaired.

New business:

Projects of Speed Humps is still on table and moving forward.  Must contact new Councilman Robin Engel to confirm that we have the backing for the city to pay half of the fee and our membership to pay the remaining half.  Since Jason had cleared this with the former Councilman, he is going to contact our new District 22 Councilman Robin Engel.  The estimated cost for our part is $6000.

Plants at the entrance will need some investigation due to constant lights, Ken knows someone who can give some insight into what plants should be used and then pass the information to the landscape people.

All members present agreed that the By-laws and Covenant needs revised due to the dated wording and the changes in technology for today’s world.  Jim has started working on this, but all members agree to meet April 7 to work as a team for agreement of the new wording.  There are sections that prohibit dishes for television and this is not practical in the communication options of present times.

The Winter Newsletter for the neighbors was discussed for ideas to publish for the community. Sharon McDermott took the notes of the information and will present to Ken for formatting.  News Letter to be mailed as soon as possible.
