that Mr. DiNolfi did his job, but the guards were "just terrible".
Mr. Chambers received a bid to remodel the
guard in the amount of $3600. Roofing was not included in the
bid. Mr. DiNolfi volunteered to donate roof tiles (as pictured)
to the association for use on the guardhouse.

stated that word does get out and "so called employees"
are talking out of line. He feels that teamwork is necessary.

does not care one way or the other whether he's working with a
gardener or with Don Braun. Mr. Baker suggested contacting Mr.
Braun and advising him that Mr. DiNolfi is his direct supervisor
and that the board feels it is essential to cut costs in that
area. If Mr. Braun does not want to accept those terms, then Mr.
Baker would recommend hiring an outside service. Joe Price withdrew

Vista Del Monumento property owners. Two homeowners stated that
they currently have trash service through River Cities. The others
have agreed to pay for the service.
Since the board has decided to maintain Vista
Del Monumento property owners names on the gate board, Ms. Schlosser
recommended that they be billed for the name tiles and suggested
that the board approach Vista Del Monumento about purchasing their
own name board. The board felt is was better to maintain control
of the board. Ms. Schlosser stated, in that case a larger board
would need to be purchased as several Keys homeowners are not
on the board at this time and have requested to have their names

the board with rental prices.
Mr. Stroud spoke with his attorney regarding
the drainage problems created by the recent paving. Mr. Stroud's
attorney recommends "he put this issue in the hands of those

not working properly.

Tax Service invoiced the association $84.45 for postage. The board
discussed and agreed to pay as invoiced.

on a street light that is out on Moovalya Drive and contact APS.
Mr. McPherson said there is a new domain "US"
and asked if the board cared if someone used the associations
website name with the US extension. The board did not feel this
was an issue.
Joe Price informed the board of sewer gas
entering his home. He advised that the Sanitary District will
perform a "smoke test" to determine where sewer gas
