The Marsh Ridge Homeowners Association Board met on Thursday, August 4, 2016. Jon Holzer and Tom Micke were absent from the meeting. The minutes of the meeting of June 1, 2016 were reviewed and approved. No items were added to the agenda.
Committee Reports: Howard Glas has received information about the yearly renewal of Insurance for the Association. Our agent indicated that our current policy premium will include increased deductibles especially for wind and hail damage. Howard has asked for additional quotes from other companies in order to manage our premium without a big increase. Throughout Minnesota there have been many claims for storm damage.
Lawn Maintenance has continued weekly since early June. Shrub/bush trimming has caused issues with some homeowners. The Board will discuss this issue at our annual meeting in September. A few trees in Marsh Ridge were damaged during our recent storms and will be trimmed or removed soon. Painting of posts has been completed and edging around the rock has been completed at 2 out of 3 twin home addresses. The weather has delayed completion of this project as well as replacement of six driveway aprons. Heavy rain has delayed the contractor who does the driveway aprons but we hope this will be completed within two weeks.
There was no financial report for July available, but the Board will meet prior to the annual meeting to prepare an estimated budget.
New Business A twin home and a single family home have been sold and closings will probably take place later in August or in early September.
Questions about trimming of ash trees were referred to our landscape contractor. The best time for tree trimming is late fall as insects can inhabit trees if trimmed in summer.
With new homeowners in Marsh Ridge the Board will update their homeowner directory. However, some homeowners have objected to the publication of their phone numbers to all residents. This issue will be discussed at the annual meeting.
The Annual Meeting will be Thursday, September 15, 2016 at Light of Christ Church. There will be a pot luck supper at 6:00 and meeting at 7:00. All homeowners will receive a notice with further details in the mail in late August.
Zelda Malo announced that the Audit Committee of the Board will meet and audit Marsh Ridge Association finances in mid-August.
