The January 3, 2018 meeting of the Board of Directors was called to order by Ed Chroscinski at 4:00 pm in the Golf Hammock Club Meeting Room.

Treasurer’s Report: The reading of the Treasurer’s report was waived because it was just given at the Annual Meeting and approved. A complete report is attached.
President's Report: Mr. Chroscinski did not give a report.
Vice-President Report: Mr. Donahue was out of town.
Violations (Property Compliance): Mr. Henderson reported that several issues were addressed concerning driveway power washes, pole lights and dog droppings. Some issues have been corrected. Roof repairs are still a contention in Cormorant Point. Mr. Henderson spoke to some residents and was told repairs could continue for some months. Mrs, Beatty said the roofing companies are overwhelmed and the shingles that are approved by the Board are in short supply. During the Holiday Season Cormorant Point experienced several visitors and were not informed of many of our regulations such as vehicles on grass, biking through residents property and dog issues. Most were explained and followed. Another area of non-compliance was owners having work done without first having approval by the Board. Mr. Henderson gave some contractors a copy of the request form. It was stated that the only way to prevent this was to issue a stop work order until the proper documents are approved. Mr. Henderson has a new phone number: 716-680-1975.
Architectural/Landscaping: No requests were made during the month of December.
Welcoming: There were no new members during the month of December. However in January we know of at least 2 new families that will be moving in.
Old Business: Please mark your calendars – the 2nd Sat. in February for the annual CPHA picnic. Volunteers are needed – get in touch with Karen Sasher (703)437-3733; leave name & phone # - voice mail or email @ email@example.com.
New Business: Mr. Chroscinski brought up an issue about rental properties and that the By-Laws state that at least 1 renter must be at least 55 years of age and no one under the age of 18 is allowed to live in Cormorant Point. The owner is responsible for the compliance of the renters. It was mentioned that the By-Laws may need to be revisited to make some changes and the website updated.
A motion was made by Mr. Chroscinski and seconded by Mrs. Beatty to adjourn the meeting and the motion carried. The next scheduled Board meeting is February 7, 2018 at the GHOA facility at 4 pm.
