  • Status on current approved projects (trees, pond clean-up)

Old Business:

  • Review and discussion on ad hoc committees from previous board.
  • Tom Shay spoke with Kelly Cline on 6/26 about the camper parked in rear of development. It is Town property and she will have it removed. As such, no one including the snow removal trucks will be able to park there going forward. Town will also place notice on windshield of Monroe Plumbing Truck to inform him that he will not be allowed to park in the cul du sac. The Town wants to be uniform in its enforcement of codes.
  • Shay met with Barb Perdue on 6/27 to discuss numerous issues, one being, D. Bellisario and her deck project. HO unhappy with siding done by Crofton. Barb Perdue agreed to cover the cost of redoing the siding to match the balance of the townhouse exterior. The job was initially billed and paid for by the HOA. Barb, Connie and Tom will meet at the location (time/date TBD) to discuss expectations.
  • Also in review of the bylaws it was noticed that there is protocol for signing checks (Sect.8.03 “Checks”) for the HOA which have not been followed in the past. Going forward, the President, in addition to Crofton, will authorize checks. Thereby at least having one board member acknowledging actual payments.

New Business:

  • The Board needs to make a motion to hire a CPA to conduct an audit of the previous year.
  • Review bids on roadway repairs/catch basins and VOTE on awarding bid
  • Discussion on setting up Presidents Advisory Council.
  • Debbie Bellisario suggestion for a “Treasures & Treat” sale and ideas from her newsletter from homeowners. (i.e. Stop sign lower CR & WC intersection), No Soliciting/No Trespassing signs and suggestion to send minutes of meetings to HO via email.
  • Met with Robert Fromberger, P.E. Town Engineer (248-6250) on 7/11/18 at the town hall and began the process of getting utility and record maps for the subdivision. Was referred to Roto Lite Elliott in Grove Place for printing.

Spoke w/ Todd at Rotoelite (7/12/) and the cost is appox $5.00 per sheet depending on the scale size needed.

  • Discussion on email from T. Y. Lin and Bob Keiffer, PE re: Retaining wall.
  • Shay met with Jim Blatt 07/09/2018 to discuss and see what the problem was pertaining to his garage door. HO had initially requested to speak w/ Board but has since declined to appear.
  • Shay has been in touch with Spectrum (7/11/18) to see if we can get a group discount for those homeowners who have Spectrum service. May require restructuring the basic billing process. Basic service and one box would be at a discount and any additional services would be billed to the homeowner separately. More to come on this.

New Business: (continued)

  • Chuck Minster suggestions.

INTRODUCTION TO CAPITAL PLAN, WOOD CREEK HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION
This long term capital plan for WCHOA is the beginning of a planning process which, if continued in the future, will provide great benefit to our community. This iteration of the plan in May 2016 builds on the plans of WCHOA’s prior boards and provides a template for continuation of the planning process by future boards . Especially important is that this plan is accompanied by the board’s approval of a resolution to be presented to WCHOA’s owners for approval at their annual meeting on June 16, 2016. This resolution, if approved, will require future boards of WCHOAto prepare and present to the community annually their revisions to the community’s capital plan, including identification of the capital investments needed in the community and the means such investments will be paid for. This will help to assure that our planning process is continuing and that the capital plans developed in prior years will not be lost and forgotten but rather will live on through this continuous process of planning. This continuity is very important. The members of our board regularly change because of term limits, movement of people into and out of the community and other changes over the years. It is vital that our planning process must continue in this context. Residents may view the document on the Residents Login site from the Documents menu.
BUDGET for 2018-2019

The Board has released the budget for the upcoming fiscal year. It is available for residents to review at the Residents Login tab, then the Documents tab. Questions may be directed to Board members.
