‚Ä¢ Meeting brought to order at 7:47 P.M. at Mary’s. Minutes of the November 28, 2005 were approved.
‚Ä¢ Replacement of Board Member ‚Äì The Board unanimously voted in Troy Maynor to replace Brad Fregger on the Board. Deborah Aker has agreed to be Treasurer.
‚Ä¢ Speed Bumps ‚ÄìLone Star Paving will be out in the next month to fill in our 3 bumps and add 2 more
‚Ä¢ Pool Resurfacing ‚Äì Two bids have come in. Mary will speak with Centex Pools who came highly recommended and bid lower ($9,000) about starting work. Jeanine has proposed that we consider having the 30,000 gallons pumped into holding tanks like we did when the well tank was resurfaced to save water.
‚Ä¢ Kew Agreement ‚Äì Cliff has all the documents and is drawing up the new agreement.
‚Ä¢ Reimbursement Request ‚Äì The Carmens had requested $50 reimbursement for having old asphalt removed from an old parking place on POA land near their fence. The work was done without Board approval. The Board agreed to pay this time but in the future, members need to submit requests and get approval prior to work being done.
‚Ä¢ Dome disrepair ‚Äì The board discussed concerns about the appearance of the Dome. An interested buyer for the Wilkes home asked who is responsible for its upkeep and why it looks so bad. The Radiance Foundation Board (Bill C. and Jim Bagnola) will be invited to our next Board meeting to discuss these issues.
‚Ä¢ Tree Trimming ‚Äì Troy is concerned that trees overhanging the roads are being torn off by passing trucks so the Board approved spending $1,000 of the budgeted $2,000 to have low branches along the roads trimmed. The oak by the parking lot at the pool also needs to be cut back considerably.
‚Ä¢ New Trees at RGH – Betsy reported on her research into replacing the Red Buds along the sidewalk in front of the Royal Garden Homes. She found a very knowledgeable nursery man in San Marco that can get us 15 gal. Texoma Red Buds that are very hardy and fast growing with a long life span for $65 – $85 each. The Board approved purchase of 8 of these trees to replace the sickly red buds there now.
10. ABC Survey of property ‚Äì Several ABC members walked Radiance and noted buildings needing small and large repairs. Letters will be sent out requesting homeowners to please attend to these repairs.
11. Kent Butler ‚Äì No word form Kent yet on rainwater Feasibility study.
12. Fence Agreement ‚Äì The Board reviewed the agreement drawn up by Tom Davies for all condo owners to sign stating that they are aware that their fence lines do not necessarily follow their property lines and that the RPOA maintains ownership of the land within their fences.
13. Covenants & By-Laws on Web Site ‚Äì Rogene Burhrdorf has offered the use of a scanner that can put the covenant and by-laws onto a computer. John Burgess, who is documenting the Radiance Maps offered to help her.
Meeting adjourned 9:25 P.M. Next Board meeting ‚Äì Mon. February 20, 2006 – 7:30 at Rick’s.
Respectfully Submitted, Mary Buchanan RPOA Secretary
