Annual Homeowner Meeting Minutes
Kathie Gudauskas announced the results of the homeowner votes on whether or not to amend the
current By Laws to allow leasing of units. A total of 75% of the 60 Homeowners (45) is required for a
vote to be effective. 48 votes were received with 21 in favor and 27 not in favor. The By Laws
amendment to allow leasing of units will NOT occur.
Kathie Gudauskas asked if any homeowners did not complete the information questionnaire to please
do so. These are being collected to ensure we have correct information for each homeowner and to
gather Property Tax Assessed Values to ensure no homeowner is being over assessed. If this is the case,
we, as a group have a better chance applying for appeals and being accepted. Further information on
this will be forthcoming.
- A request was made to possibly revisit amending the By Laws to allow leasing later this year. It was
discussed that the pros and cons of renting should be included in the communication to the
homeowners if and when this takes place again.
- A request was submitted to inspect the vent intakes to ensure they are in good order on the buildings
- A request was submitted to research FHA Approval for units being purchased. The Board will research
this and has already been informed that the Association as a whole can submit for FHA Approval as a
whole. This would required the assistance of an attorney.
- A request was submitted to inspect the gutters above and around the middle (two Bedroom) units due
to improper of draining in the winter causing a build of ice on and around the porch
The Meeting was adjourned at 8:30pm.
