The Board of Marsh Ridge Homeowners Association met on November 10, 2016. All Board members were present. The Board reviewed the minutes of the Annual Meeting and the Board meeting following on September 15, 2016. Minutes were approved. There were no additions to the agenda.
Committee Reports: Tom Micke distributed the financial statement for October and the Board discussed expenses and operating income. With mostly fixed expenses to be paid in November and December, net operating income should be adequate until dues payable in January are received. Tom and Jon Holzer have met with the person who will manage the books of the Association as of January 1, 2017. They will continue to work together to transfer the files of the Association.
As of December 1, Association dues for 2017 can no longer be dropped in the locked mailbox at 549 Bonita. They must be mailed to the Association P.O. Box 278, Delano, MN 55328. Gail Scholl will update the owners list with the addition of 4 new residents. If you have a new phone or e-mail address, please contact her or any Board member with this information.
Our lawn contractor will make one more visit to clean up leaves that fell late in the season. They have serviced the sprinkler system for winter and blow back valves in the pump houses will be checked and serviced. Homeowners whose sump pump discharge pipe has been buried, should disconnect this pipe at the wall of their home so water that has collected will not freeze and back up.
Old Business: The lights at the entrance sign to Marsh Ridge have been replaced.. Other lights that shine up into the 3 trees at the entrance will be repaired in spring as they are normally under snow during the winter months.
Two twinhomes at 615 and 618 Marsh Drive were sold and new homeowners are in residence. A twinhome at 671 Bonita Circle and a single family home at 504 Aspen Circle have sold and will close by the end of November.
New Business: Some residents have received a notice from the City of a public hearing on the plan review on the construction of the new Intermediate School. A number of residents on Tower Drive were concerned about the possibility of Tower Drive becoming a through street. Roger Swenson from Bonita Circle met with the City Administrator on November 10 and joined the Board meeting to discuss the plans. There will be a turn around only at the end of Tower Drive. A storm sewer line will be installed to drain the school site into storm drains in Marsh Ridge.
Craig Sinkel and Howard Glas will attend the public hearing to learn more about the storm runoff issue.
Other: Please note that the City restricts overnight parking on public streets from November 1 through April 1 each year.
The next Board meeting will be Thursday, January 19, 2017 at 7:00 at 641 Marsh Drive. This is an open meeting and any resident can attend.
