The meeting was called to order at 7:00 p.m. at Jerry Niedzwiecki’s home.


1.      Road repairs and snow removal


Two asphalt repairs (one following a water leak last summer, and the other a sewer leak last fall) on Hawk Island Drive were recently completed at a cost of $500.  A recent snowfall cost $85 to clear Island Court and Ridgeview Terrace.


2.      Sewer compliance project


Part of the project has been completed.  Two diffusers were installed at the budgeted cost of $1600.  The remaining part of the project—to install a weir and baffle in one of the basins—is awaiting delivery of the weir and baffle.  They should arrive soon.


3.      Assessments


Assessments have been collected from all but three property owners.  These three have been contacted.  Two are expected to pay shortly.  One property owner said that they will not be paying.  Jerry will follow up with that property owner.  If payment is not received, we will file a lien against the property for the amount of the assessment, plus interest.


4.      Homeowners directory


Only about half of the property owners responded by the January 15th deadline.  To try to increase participation in and usefulness of the directory, Jerry and Cindy subsequently telephoned the remaining homeowners and obtained information sheets from nearly all of them.  Jim Glickert will enter this information into the directory, and get copies printed and distributed shortly.


5.      Deeds


Jim Lewis turned over the deeds he had for the two water wells, the sewer plant, the pool and tennis court area, and Island Court.  He will follow up with the Webers on the deed for the portion of their property that was granted to the Association some years ago to provide room for the street and parking area adjacent to the swimming pool.


6.      Water Well #1


Atkisson & Son Pump Service inspected the #1 water well and thinks the casing is bad.  They are going to get back to Jerry about fixing the well and perhaps replacing the 20 year-old pump.  Jim Lewis recommended that if we replace the pump, we replace it with one that has a greater pumping capacity. 


7.      Miscellaneous


·        The upper-tier section of Hawk Island Drive is on Camden County’s list for paving in the spring.

·        Cindy presented a revised format for the Association’s budget that now shows the water and wastewater expenses separately, and further breaks down each category by operating expenses and repairs.

·        Jerry talked to Malcolm Lehr at Lake Cable about the possibility of getting broadband (i.e. high-speed) internet service over the cable television lines.  Malcolm said that relatively few homeowners expressed an interest in such service when a survey was done some time ago, and would not justify the costs involved..  


The meeting adjourned at 8:10 p.m.


Respectfully submitted,

Jim Glickert
