CORMORANT POINT HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION
The November 7, 2018 Meeting of the Board of Directors was called to order by President Ed Chroscinski at 4:00 pm in the Golf Hammock Meeting Room. All Board members were in attendance: Ed Chroscinski, Nancy Beatty, Joyce Lawrence, Carl Scaggs, Bob Henderson and Lillian Kachelries. There were 19 residents in attendance.
MINUTES: The minutes of the October 3, 2018 meeting were emailed and posted on our bulletin board on the Waterwood Commons. The minutes were also posted on the Golf Hammock website. A motion was made by Mrs. Beatty and seconded by Mrs. Kachelries to approve the minutes as written. The motion unanimously carried.
TREASURER’S REPORT: The Treasurer’s Report was read by Mrs. Beatty. See attachment. Mrs. Beatty stated that she has to go to the bank every month because homeowners do not pay the maintenance fee when it is due. The maintenance fee is due quarterly by the 10th and is late on the 15th. Beginning in 2019 there is a late fee charge of $25.00. Mrs. Beatty mailed letters this month to delinquent homeowners and stated there are 5 homeowners who have not paid. There was a motion by Mr. Henderson and seconded by Mrs. Kachelries to pay Mrs. Beatty the IRS rate for mileage. The motion carried.
PRESIDENT’S REPORT: Mr. Chroscinski reported there is 1 home in the neighborhood that has been turned over to the bank. There was a discussion concerning the responsibility of the Association. The shrubbery needs to be trimmed now. There was also discussion about who is paying the electric because of the post light and the irrigation system. The property would be in violation of the by-laws if it is not maintained properly. Mr. Chroscinsk stated that he would write a letter to the mortgage company telling them of these concerns by the Association.
Mr. Chroscinski reported that work on the swales on both sides of Cormorant Point Drive from Par Road to Waterwood Drive is scheduled to begin on November 14 ending on November 16, 2018. This is a private community. This work is the responsibility of the Golf Hammock Owners Association. He stated there is a 12 foot easement from the street on each property. The street is the responsibility of the Golf Hammock Owners Association. An attempt to advise each homeowner in person has begun. A copy of the letter from the Golf Hammock Owners Association will be given to each homeowner. The letter states that each homeowner is responsible for the irrigation system and that tree roots will be dealt with as required.
Mr. Chroscinski asked, “When was the last time your home was painted?” Take a walk around your home and look at it as if you were going to buy it. Would you want it painted as a condition to purchase. We live in a beautiful community and let’s keep it that way. He also mentioned to check your mailbox and post. When was the last time they were painted.
Mr. Chroscinski reminded everyone who lives here part-time to be sure to have maintenance on the shrubbery while you are away. It is not in agreement with the By-laws to let the shrubs grow wild until returning for the winter season.
Mr. Chroscinski reported that work is continuing on the revision of the By-laws.
Mr. Chroscinski asked if anyone was interested in serving on the Board to please let a current Board member know prior to our Annual Meeting in January. We currently need a Vice President and very shortly a Landscape Committee Chairman. He also stated that he had contacted someone who will volunteer to help with our annual audit.
