New Business

  • Kelly from Suburban Landscape Management (see above).
  • HOA Management reading of past minutes regarding covenants amendments- In the covenants Article IV section 4.3 it states the following; “the maximum general assessment for any year may not be increased any subsequent year by the Association, to an amount which is more than 20% compounded above the annual assessment for the previous year, without a vote of the membership of the Association.”
  • In 2004 in the Second Amendment the assessments are changed to $75.00. Now, note in Article IV section 4.3 states that the amount may not be increased any subsequent year by the Association to the amount which is more than 20% compounded above the annual assessment for the previous year, without a vote of the members. Well, from 2004 through 2013 the dues haven’t even gone up 20%. They haven’t jumped more than 20% a year which means that the board is not required to file an amendment regarding the dues.
  • 10605 W. Dallas St. – The board had no idea that this residence was behind on the dues because OMNI didn’t have the house on record. A house audit upon converting to HOA management revealed the property and this issue. Lariat construction is the responsible party for the dues owed. He will be invoiced, and if within 30 days the back dues are not paid, a lien will be placed on the property.
  • Tree Removal on Lark Entrance- 3 bids (Suburban, Fierce, and Alfred’s superior tree service). Lisa motions to accept Fierce bid for tree removal for $882, Ashley 2nds, (Passes 3-0)
