Treasurer’s Report: Nancy Beatty reported that we started the month of August with $88,044.37 in the checking account so that with receipts of $3,990 and expenses (for lawn maintenance and miscellanies) of $14,227, the balance in the account at end of the month was $77,807. A motion to approve the report was unanimously approved. A full report showing the months of Jun and July is attached.
President's Report: After years of drought, we’ve had an average of 55 inches the last four years. The water standing in the swales during the recent heavy rains is primarily the result of thickening of grass over time which prevents proper drainage. Because of the liability for potential sprinkler system damage, the Golf Hammock board is not going to do any work to alleviate accumulated water in swales. Therefore it is up the individual homeowner in cooperation with neighbors to provide better drainage through the grass. In one case it may require the removal of a tree. As this is the about the end of the rainy season (baring any hurricanes), please keep this suggestion in mind for next year.
Vice-President Report: No report
Violations (Property Compliance): Board members noted that most Bylaw violations reflect a lack of knowledge of the Bylaws. Therefore, a motion was moved, seconded and passed unanimously that in the near future a registered letter (return receipt requested) outlining the most important Bylaws would be sent to each homeowner.
Also, Alex Harding has resigned as Chairman of the committee. We are asking for volunteers for this position as well as others to serve on the board.
Architectural/Landscaping: A satellite dish was installed and the screening of a lanai was approved.
Note: please get approval before during the requested work.
Welcoming: Several visits were made over the summer.
Old Business: None.
New Business: None
Member Comments: None.
Meeting adjourned. The next scheduled Board meeting will be October 5 at the GHOA facility at 4:00 pm.
