CALL TO PUBLIC
There were no comments from guests.
Mr. Sweeney moved to approve the Minutes of the regular meeting
of September 11, 2006. The motion was seconded, and the motion
carried. Mr. Risen clarified that issues discussed in an executive
session can only be voted on after reconvening to a regular session.
Mr. Sweeney moved to approve the September Profit & Loss Statement.
The motion was seconded, and the motion carried.
Mr. Stroud moved to approve the September
Balance Sheet. The motion was seconded, and the motion carried.
It was noted that the rental security deposit for lot 112 should
either be returned or transferred to lot 012, since escrows on
these properties closed last month.
Mr. Maxwell moved to approve the prepaid bills
and Bills for Approval. The motion was seconded, and the motion
Ms. Thomson reported that Lemme Engineering has completed its
survey of the front area and that markers are in place. Bill Lemme
told Ms. Thomson that the Association has a few more feet than
was previously indicated. The new owners to the north plan on
building three residential units, and they asked Lemme to give
us these few feet on their south boundary, which grant supersedes
what we were already given. The new tract map will include Association
property and the back piece we don’t own.
The owners of lot 212 reported that one of
their guests received a citation over Labor Day for crossing Riverside
Drive in R&B Security’s golf cart, which wasn’t
street legal. The owner erroneously thought the cart belonged
to the Association. The individual from California has to return
to Parker to attend court, and he is facing fines of $1,600. The
fine attributable to no proof of insurance is $900, which is consistent
with what the Sheriff’s Office told us at the annual meeting.
Mr. Risen reported that a first-offense, extreme
DUI fine in Mohave County is now $4,500. If one wants to contest,
and loses, the fine is $7,500. Lake Havasu City has a no-tolerance
The Land account on the Balance Sheet was
adjusted to $108,312 which reflects the current assessed value
of the three lots that comprise the common parking area.
Weed letters were sent to the owners of lots
175, 180, 207, 227 and 228. Mr. St. George reported that Mike
Roberts cleared the excess vegetation on vacant lot 27, with the
exception of trimming the palm trees, in which the homeowner,
or someone on her behalf, should follow up.
The lot 112 proposed Easement Agreement was
sent to the new owners for their signatures.
Ms. Thomson asked for guidance on the various
patch jobs on the streets.
Late fees were assessed to nine lot owners
for delinquent dues.
GENERAL MANAGER’S REPORT
Two white line citations to lot 114 (renters) were issued on October
1. The folks with a boat and trailer parked just outside the gate
were warned not to park there, and the owners complained that
there are no markings on the street.
The lot 32 dog has been seen out again. Mr.
St. George stated that relatives are taking care of the dog.
Ms. Shockley reported that the Sheriff’s
Office is no longer allowing non-MVD-registered golf carts and
other off-road vehicles to travel on the dirt shoulder of Riverside
Drive anymore. Mr. Sweeney stated that in order to stay legal
these types of vehicles must be 40’ away from the centerline
of the road.
Mr. Risen reported that the Nevada Gaming
Commission has been in the neighborhood doing an investigation
on the Herbsts who are planning a new casino.
Mr. Svider asked for clarification on Ms.
Shockley’s 9/20 and 9/22 report entries. There was a tow
on 9/20, but a warning on 9/22, and what was the difference between
the two. Ms. Shockley clarified that she should have stated on
the 9/22 entry that the owners were going to exceed the 14-day
limit, not that they did exceed it, which is why they received
Mr. Sweeney received the amended bid from Steve Stanton for the
wall at the front area, which was obtained after the survey markers
were placed. The revised bid, to allow for the additional 70’
length, is $18,011.85. Because this amount is in excess of prior
Board approval, and because we are adding more than initially
thought, Mr. Sweeney asked for approval of the revised bid. The
money we receive from the damage claim will offset the Association’s
out-of-pocket expense. Mr. Coon asked what funds are available
for the project, and Ms. Thomson stated that aside from the operating
account, the Association has in excess of $147,000 in its capital
improvements and reserve accounts. Mr. Sweeney made a motion that
the Board approve the Steve Stanton bid of $18,011.85 for the
construction of the wall at the front area. Mr. St. George seconded
the motion. There being no further discussion, the motion carried
Mr. Svider asked if Buckskin Sanitary District
claims responsibility for the manhole on Apache Loop. Mr. Risen
stated that they say it is not theirs. The only way to know is
to see what is inside. Ms. Shockley reported NPG Cable has one
of their high-speed cables lying across the parking lot running
to lot 245. She will contact NPG to have them bury the line, from
lot 245 to the utility box.
Mr. Risen reported a cold patch was put on
the Yaqui Loop utility repair area, A hot patch was put on the
Papago Loop job. Hopi Drive is still sinking. Mr. Sweeney will
assist Ms. Thomson in sending the appropriate letters to resolve
these problems prior to next month’s meeting. Mr. Sweeney
suggested that Buckskin Sanitary District be contacted about the
vault on Apache Loop to see if they claim it. It’s a 15-year
old vault, and there is a tendency for the various utility companies
to deny they created it. Mr. Stroud suggested that APS be contacted
to see if it is either theirs or they can determine whose it is.
Mr. Risen stated that Buckskin Sanitary District told him they
would have to first dig it up in order to fill it in. Mr. Sweeney
stated that compaction would be needed. Mr. Churchill advised
that it would be difficult to make a demand if we don’t
know who is responsible. Buckskin Sanitary District states that
it is an APS vault. Mr. Churchill advised that in order to solve
this problem, we contact APS and ask that they take a look at
it. Ms. Shockley reported that the road would have to be dug up
to find out who’s vault it is. Mr. Risen asked that we get
an estimate from Mike Dyer so that we can take action next month.
Concerning the NPG Cable issue at the first
bridge, Mr. Sweeney reported that the utility repairs are done
with blacktop on one side and concrete on the other side. Ms.
Thomson asked for photos, prior to contacting NPG about completing
Park-At-Your-Own-Risk signs for the parking
lot have not yet been made. Ms. Thomson has found Laser Brite
closed the last two times she attempted to drop off the blanks.
There was no new business.
The meeting adjourned to Executive Session
at 6:56 p.m.
