GENERAL MANAGER’S REPORT
Ms. Shockley stated that Mike’s Contracting is working on
the streets and making repairs with black concrete, with the exception
of the berm in front of Mr. Stroud’s property, which will
be done with hot mix. Ms. Shockley sent a bid to Buckskin Sanitary
District for manholes, and they agreed to pay for them.
Mr. Baker asked for clarification from Ms.
Shockley in regards to her written report on warnings issued on
the 16th and 18th to 8829 Papago, and Ms. Shockley replied that
those warnings were actually for two different lots on Papago.
Mr. Kossnar questioned the legality of the
car on jack stands at lot 141. Ms. Shockley stated that there
are frequent overnighters at lot 141 who also have been seen speeding
on their street.
Ms. Shockley stated that T&C Seal Coating
will start soon, once Mike Dyer is done with the street repairs.
Mr. Stroud stated that we need to line out the re-striping once
the seal coat is down. Mr. Risen suggested that we measure and
note the distance from the light pole or water meter to where
the existing white line is to establish the landmarks. Mr. Sweeney
stated that the County has a striper and it is free, with the
Association purchasing the paint. He said he would help Ms. Shockley
with the landmarks. Mr. Risen asked if we should stripe the west
side of Moovalya Drive. Mr. Sweeney stated that we should do so,
since we own it. Mr. Sweeney stated we should mark it consistent
with a certain distance from the water maters. Mr. Risen asked
if we should stripe the area by the dumpsters, and Mr. Sweeney
recommended we not do so.
Mr. St. George suggested that Mr. Churchill look at the County
notice that is posted on lot 10, which gives the owner 30 days
to bring the roof up to code. He stated the notice has been there
approximately one week. Mr. Churchill stated that he is still
dealing with Mr. Willoughby’s litigation on the legal ownership
of lot 10.
Mr. Price moved to transfer $100,000 of the
Association’s reserve funds to a six-month CD account at
National Bank of Arizona. Mr. Baker seconded the motion, and the
Mr. Chambers, absent from last month’s
meeting, asked for clarification about the street crack fill proposal
discussed in February. Mr. Price replied that cracks smaller than
¼” can be filled only with the seal coat, as the
rubber material for the crack filling won’t fit.
Mr. Sweeney presented remodel plans for lot 12. The directors
and legal counsel reviewed the plans. Mr. Sweeney moved to approve
the remodel plans for lot 12, as the plans are in compliance with
height and setbacks. Mr. Churchill approved the plans, as long
as the height is correct, which Mr. Sweeney stated is correct.
Mr. Sweeney gave Ms. Thomson the homeowner’s construction
deposit. The motion was seconded, and the motion carried.
Mr. Chambers stated he would like to see a
bike rack put in near the entrance. Mr. Sweeney stated it should
go by the guard shack for monitoring by camera. Mr. Risen stated
he knows someone who has a rack that would probably donate it.
Mr. Risen asked if anyone is aware of any
recent thefts, and Mr. Maxwell replied that there have been some
Mr. Baker discussed the recently distributed
Assessment Notices by the County Assessor, and anyone wishing
to appeal should take their Assessment Notice to the Assessor’s
Office before April 16 to file an appeal of the 2008 valuation.
Mr. Price stated that persons filing appeals can meet directly
with Assessor Office personnel.
Ms. Shockley reported that the dock at lot
169 is falling apart. Ms. Shockley will get some photos to Ms.
Thomson so a letter can be sent to the owner.
Mr. Risen reported there are major changes
occurring on the CRIT reservation, with the resignation of the
police chief, who has left the area, and the police force being
reduced from 35 officers to 8 officers. There are new Council
members. There is no money for prisoner care in the jail, and
the Tribes are refusing to sign memoranda of understanding with
outside agencies. Law enforcement is virtually non-existent at
the present time. Mr. Churchill stated that the Tribes recently
started mandatory drug testing, with sufficient warnings given
to all, but there were still many failed drug tests.
The meeting adjourned to Executive Session at 6:50 p.m.
