The Marsh Ridge Homeowners Association Board met on April 7, 2015 with all members present. Minutes of February 12 were approved and discussion followed on financial reports supplied by Tom Micke. The only question concerned the lack of billings for snow removal since January. Low snow totals this year have been favorable for our budget. The financial reports were approved.
Committee Reports: There was nothing further on Finance or Insurance. One twin home roof remains and will be started as soon as weather permits. Our lawn/grounds contractor has been asked to schedule drainage work on two sites, along Tower Drive and at 551 Bonita, again as weather permits.
Old Business: The twin home at 597 Bonita Circle has been sold and will close on April 15.
New Business: The Board discussed the budget allocated for summer maintenance. Driveway repair and plastic edging around rock will possibly require more than is budgeted. A date for inspection of exterior maintenance problems was set by the Board for May 4th beginning at 5:00. If an issue exists let any Board member know before this date. Members of the Board will be walking throughout Marsh Ridge in back of twin home properties as well as on the street side. Homeowners can also alert the Board to issues as they are inspecting. A list of summer maintenance will be developed.
The lights at the entrance sign to Marsh Ridge have been erratic but are now working properly.
The Architectural Committee declined to make a recommendation to the Board on a homeowner’s request due to the lack of a formal application and other pertinent information.
Two issues will be investigated and brought before members at the annual meeting. One is a request by some homeowners about the possibility of plowing of individual driveways when snow amounts do not reach the minimum amount. Another suggestion was to build locking mailbox stations in Marsh Ridge. Further details and costs will be investigated and will be available at the annual meeting.
The next Board meetings will be the May 4th “walk around” beginning at 5:00 and a follow up Board meeting on Tuesday, May 12th at 7:30 at 542 Marsh Drive.
