Bridgewood Estates
HOA Board Meeting
September 1st, 2011

Attendees: Michael White, Margaret Brammall, Monty Laughlin, Joshua Hunter, Juanita Carbaugh
Michael White called the meeting to order at 6:35 p.m.

  • Minutes of the last meeting were approved.

  • The Treasurer’s report was presented by Juanita and was approved.

  • The contract with a collection agency has been signed. One homeowner paid after a lien was filed but three are still in arrears and will go to collections.

  • Four alternative landscaping companies were recommended by homeowners. Juanita will itemize the duties and show the spreadsheet to Clark Brothers to ensure that all duties are covered, and we will then put it out to bid to those companies. A plat map with common areas highlighted will be included.

  • The storm water system is now in compliance. The ponds will be cleared in April, prior to the May inspection, after which a decision will be made about whether to clear them once or twice a year.

  • Monty fixed the broken water pipe. The joint was improperly glued. Juanita will inform Soundview Landscaping of the nature of the problem, because they thought it was the heads.

  • Board members will be keep an eye open violations of the CC&Rs and will be responsible for validating neighbors’ complaints.

  • In the next newsletter, we will set out basic standards for yard maintenance, such as green lawns and weed abatement. After that, letters will be sent to homeowners who are in violation.

  • Three stop signs will be replaced.

  • Some homeowners want to circulate a petition to be sent to the Department of Transportation regarding the noise from expansion joints on the Narrows Bridge. We will authorize this.

  • The next Board meeting will be at 6:30pm on 12/1/11.

  • The meeting adjourned at 7:45pm.
