The Marsh Ridge Homeowners Association Board met on Wednesday, June 1, 2016. All members were present and Tom Micke joined the Board. The minutes of April 27, 2016 were reviewed and approved. No items were added to the agenda.
Committee Reports: Tom Micke distributed the May financial report. After discussion the Board approved it as submitted. There were no snow, insurance or lawn and sprinkler maintenance issues for this report. See New Business for lawn issues.
Old Business: Craig Sinkel and Howard Glas updated the Board on items completed on the Walk Around work list. Jon Holzer will follow up with DMJ from Loretto who will repair/replace 5 driveway aprons. The work will be done later in June, weather and schedules permitting. Homeowners of the driveways noted on the summer work list will be notified in advance so they can move cars from the garage.
New Business: A twin home at 618 Marsh Drive is for sale. The twin home at 622 Marsh Drive closed in late May.
Howard reported that a bid has been received from Jenco for two projects. All trees on twin home properties and common areas will be top dressed with wood chip mulch. New paver edging will be installed on two twin homes. This requires cutting out the grass, moving sprinklers and installing pavers.
Spring turn on and maintenance of the sprinkler system has been completed. Approximately 160 sprinkler heads were replaced and reset. The sprinkler system has been turned off at this time because grass is too wet. The system is not broken.
The City of Delano has been working with some residents on the west side of Marsh Drive to clean up the pond and brush. Jenco will be mowing in the area so that sprinkler heads are not buried by marsh grasses.
Other: Craig read a number of e-mail suggestions for the Board. Two issues affecting all homeowners were a bulletin board listing upcoming events and a directory of all homeowners. These will be discussed at the annual meeting in September.
Other concerns were about the dogs in Marsh Ridge. MRHA Rules and Regulations under IV-Pet Regulations state that “no pet shall be allowed outside of a building unless on a leash and accompanied by its owner.” “Each owner of a pet shall be responsible for cleaning up after his/her pet at all places on the property.” “Damage caused by any pet to any part of the property shall be the sole responsibility of the owner and the owner shall pay promptly any costs to restore this damage”
Leash laws and clean up rules are similar in City codes and apply to city parks and along sidewalks in the City. A stand with plastic bags and a trash receptacle is available along the walk from Marsh Ridge to Central Park. Please respect your neighbors’ property and the areas in Central Park where children may be walking through grassy areas.
The next Board meeting will be Thursday, August 4, 2016 at 7:00 at 542 Marsh Drive.
