August 30, 2007
Joe Faulkner’s Home

Old Business

Legal action against homeowners Fred and Sherri Andrea:

A general discussion centered on how we might proceed now that we have notified our attorney, George Kelley, to rescind the arbitration effort. Joe’s last conversation with Kelley concluded that continuing the arbitration effort would represent a potentially endless series of costly legal efforts, since even an arbitration judgment against the Andreas would not guarantee that we could recover the monies spent. According to Kelley, a judgment against the Andreas would result in our filing a new lien against the Andrea property, but not against their mortgage. A lien of this type would mean the Association would have no greater standing than other creditors.
The conclusion of the discussion resulted in Board members Koontz, Reid, and Roundy agreeing to research legal alternatives to the arbitration effort, such as filing a notice in small claims court.

Repair of lampposts in Division I:

Joe and Bill reported on the latest update. Same Day Electric has not repaired the three (3) lampposts that we contracted for, and Joe will continue to follow up to make sure the repairs are made. After satisfactorily completing the work, we will switch vendors and use Delta Electric. Joe met this week with a representative from Delta, and they will begin repairs on the entrance gate lamps shortly.
