PRESIDENT’S REPORT: Mr. Chroscinski stated that future meetings of the Board of Directors would be held at the Sebring Christian Church, located next to the west entrance to Golf Hammock. The reason for this is because of the increase for renting the Activity Building from $400.00 per month to $700.00 per month. The meeting would be on a Wednesday at 3:00 pm. The Board of Directors Meeting will be February 6 at 3:00 pm at the Sebring Christian Church.

Mr. Chroscinski reported that the Audit Committee had completed the yearly audit and all accounts have been reported properly.
Mr. Chroscinski stated that the review of the Bylaws had been completed. The Covenants have not been changed. The document is now with the Association’s attorney. When it is finalized and reprinted each homeowner will be required to sign for their new copy. We will try to give you update information before or at the Annual Picnic.
A. CORRESPONDENCE: Mrs. Beatty read a letter from Mr. Jim Dubberly, President of Lawn Masters of Highlands.

There was a discussion about the Annual Picnic.
C. ARCHITECTURAL/LANDSCAPING: Mr. Scaggs stated he did not have any permits during this month. He reported that Sherwin Williams had agreed to give all the homeowners of Cormorant Point a permanent discount for all the outside paint. This is available only at the Sherwin Williams located at 1132 Lakeview Drive in Sebring. This is the south Sebring store. There was a discussion about installing utility lights on the streets. It was stated that this was discussed several years ago and since the lights would have to be installed on each owner’s property that the owner would have to pay for the light. The homeowners did not want to do this. There was a discussion about installing solar panels. It was mentioned this was discussed several years ago also. It was decided this would need to be researched and then brought before the Board.
