Present: Jim Overturf, Lonnie Wright, Louis Holzknecht, Sharon McDermott, Henry Ford, Ken Bickel and Karen Bickel.
Meeting notice and proxies were mailed to all members on April 1, 2016 via USPS.
The meeting was held at the Fern Creek Community Center 6104 Bardstown Rd.
One proxy was received, but it had no person designated as their vote power, so it only counted toward the attendance. We had to have 25% of the members in good standing to obtain a quorum, which would have been 13 households/proxies. We only had 10 members/proxies, so therefore the meeting was just an informal discussion with the few that did attend.
Owen Parry said the “No Outlet” sign at Herring Ct and Old Toll Rd has helped reduce the turnaround traffic on the street. Pete Flood discussed the Brightside projects in process to help clean up the area. People can also call 311 to report littering. Try to have the car tags, date, time and location of the incident. There are fines and ordinance codes that will be enforced.
The Treasurer, Mr. Holzknecht, presented the 2016 budget and there was some questions from a couple of the Board members as to why some of the Board members were doing the work on the entrance themselves instead of hiring it out like it had be allowed in the budget. Mr. Overturf and Mr. Wright explained that we were trying to get the actual cost of the merchandise without the markup for labor to get a better idea of how much this should really cost per year. It was also explained that our budget runs so close to zero at the end of each year that there are no monies to start a saving plan for unexpected emergencies or for the entrance wall replacement.
It was reported that one neighbor still wants Speed Humps; the problem is the streets have been measured and they do not meet the requirements.
As for Board members; one position term was to expire, but since there was no quorum reached we could not hold an election or vote. There were two (2) board members who resigned.
The group adjourned at 7:50pm.
This recap was submitted solely for any interested members to be able to see what were the topics of interest with the neighbors that were present.
