Synopsis of Board Meetings
2016 - 2017 - 2018

Dear Neighbors,

This will be my last Synopsis of HOA board meetings. I am elected the new secretary for the HOA board for a 2 year term. I will see that all significant information and discussion from the meetings is in the minutes, not just some of the votes taken. And, I promise you that the minutes will be completed in a timely manner.

Documentation to answer Ontkean's
Facebook post

On May 2nd in a Facebook post, Cindy Ontkean claimed that the Board never considered maintenance of the common areas and the wetlands. She claimed that the Board refused all requests and refused any consideration. This is the documentation that the Board was active in dealing with all requests.There is also documentation that the Ontkeans were reminded and admitted they were not to build permanent structures on the HOA common area property.

The Ontkeans don't like timeline...Cindy calls it a diatribe.

Included in the Patio Encroachment below are Surveys, HOA Board's complicity and the Revocable License Agreement.

The evidence in this whole mess is voluminous. Nothing is secret except the deliberations and reasoning of the current board. The previous artcle posted here is now a pdf document.
