Board Members Present: Dianne, Anne, Darcie, Tina, Cheryl, Jeff
Open Meeting (Dianne)
Discuss Cass Lake boat launch vandalism to several boats; In the spring
were vandalized, or had items stolen (radios, batteries, fire
extinguishers, etc.). Police
reports were filed. Dianne talked with Waterford Police Department and
was informed it
was part of ‘common spring activities’ around the lakes, several
neighborhoods in the
area also reported vandalism at the same time.
Discussed the arson fires – letters were written the the parole board by
neighborhood families stating why they think the younger Garcia boy
should not be
released until he receives the help he needs, also requesting he not be
allowed back in our
neighborhood. Letters will be taken under advisory by the parole board.
Discuss open positions on the Board, request neighborhood participation
responsibility. Request volunteers to take on event planning.
Vote to Update By Laws – motion passed (attachment).
Review Financial Statement – Anne (attached)
Explain why we ‘got out of the garbage business’ – CSCA was basically
losing money by
providing members with discounted trash pick up (fuel increases, billing
wasted on the phone every billing period for over bills). Not to mention
the verbal abuse
received if a homeowner was accidentally missed on trash pick up day.
New Website introduced! Darcie is working on a CSCA website to hold
meeting and event dates, outlot clean up dates, meeting agendas &
minutes, boat launch
wait lists, announcements, by laws, neighborhood map, etc. An e-mail
account was set
up for comments and suggestions.
Discuss membership initiative drive to gain additional members (offer
good thru end of
year) – if any current member gets 2 homeowners to join, they get a $25
gas card – once
the members have paid their annual maintenance dues. Get 5 homeowners to
join, get a
$50 gas card. Discuss ways to get members interested in the association.
Possible events for the fall; cider/donut get together and CSCA Home
Beckman suggestion, agreed to open up his home for ‘tours’ and CSCA to
refreshments). Tina & Dianne to coordinate date with homeowners.
Received a group of
volunteers to distribute flyers.
