The meeting opened with a vote and approval to not read the meeting minutes from the 2016 Annual Resident Meeting.

A huge thank you to our two board members, Terry Kocsis and Jackie Smith, whose terms were ending. The Board presented them with an appreciation gift for their hard work.

There were two openings on the Board for a 3 year term. There were 4 people who were interested in serving and each one told us more about themselves and any experience they had. A big thank you to those who were willing to serve on the Board. The candidates were: Jerry Roslawski, Tony Caruso, Michael Engler, and Karen Schliefert.

Ed Ganey gave the Treasurer’s report.

Jeanne Brown and Suzi King spoke about NextDoor and the website. NextDoor is a social site for neighborhoods and a place to let people know of garage sales, opportunities, social information, and emergency information such as break-ins, etc. Our website is a place for information regarding meetings and the neighborhood that has to do with lawn care, snow removal, common areas, and other things that are helpful to the community. All minutes, memos that are emailed, board meeting dates, etc. are posted on the website for your convenience.

Phil and Donna Dudley will be starting a book club for residents, both men and women, beginning in January. Please contact them if you are interested.

Regarding the condos and construction, there was an update sent out prior to the meeting. The main hold up at this time is that they are waiting on permits.

Beginning January 1, 2018, dues will be $110/month. No discount is given for annual payments in 2018. Monthly payments are preferred and can be set-up as a monthly automatic bill pay through your bank (this is not an ACH transfer). Contact Suzi King at with any questions. Dues will be reassessed based on budget needs by or before the next annual meeting.

Terry Kocsis gave an update on both Japanese Beetles and protecting the ash trees. The Board will be spraying the ash trees in the common areas of the neighborhood. The residents are responsible for caring for their own ash trees. Robert’s Nursery has made recommendations about how to do this. They will also provide a discount for products for residents. The notes are on the website and have been sent out by email. Please let Suzi King know if you would like these resent to you.

The website is located at Membership is required. Please visit the I’m New page and the Join Now button to register. Your membership will be pending until approved. The purpose of this is to protect our residents.

Most people at the meeting approved creating a directory. Due to privacy practices, this will not be posted on the website. If you do not want your email and phone number listed in the directory, please contact Suzi King.

Lawn care notices will be emailed and put on the website. Robert’s has been emailed regarding a few questions that were asked at the meeting.

Ballots were collected for the two new Board positions. One ballot per household was allowed. Votes were counted by 4 Board members and Suzi King that evening and the two new Board members were notified the next day. They are Jerry Roslawski and Tony Caruso.

Thank you again to all who were willing to serve on the Board and thank you to all who attended the meeting. There were over 60 residents at the meeting.

Respectfully submitted,
Jeanne Brown
