Lake Hills HOA Annual Meeting Minutes
Lake Hills Home Owners Association Annual Meeting
October 23, 2018
Carnegie Building Downtown Newnan
Mitch Headley called the meeting to order at 6:03 PM. There were approximately 45 residents in attendance. Mitch asked that we dispense with the reading of the minutes from the last meeting. A motion was made, seconded, and approved.
The current board members were recognized.
Jim Daum gave the Treasurer's report, which included a three-year average profit and loss statement showing average losses of $954. Losses are forecasted to increase in 2018 due to removal of dead trees in the Common area on Magnolia Drive, and the removal of the unsafe Dock on Lake #1. The losses are also due to 30% of the Homeowners not paying annual dues.
Later in the meeting Jon McMillan expressed concern regarding these annual losses. A motion was made to increase annual membership dues $25 to help eliminate the losses. This motion was seconded and approved unanimously.
Effective with the 2019 dues billing, the Annual Membership Fee would be $150.00 for homes bordering Lake 1 with Lake 1 privileges. $125.00 for homes not bordering Lake 1 with Lake 1 privileges. $100.00 for homes not bordering Lake 1 without Lake 1 privileges.
Jim reported cash of $33,000 and a CD of approximately $129,300 as of October 23, 2018.
A question was asked regarding filing a lien on the property of residents who do not pay their dues. Mitch explained the HOA's restrictive covenants expired and were never renewed, and the reinstatement of the covenants requires a 100% affirmative vote.
A motion was made to approve the Treasurer's report, it was seconded and approved unanimously.
Lake 1 Rules and Regulations were distributed to all in attendance.
Lowering of Lake 1 for Homeowner Maintenance was discussed among those present and recommended to lower Lake 1 by approximately two feet in the near future. There were no objections voiced. Ron Covey asked that the lake be lowered when it reaches a high level after heavy amounts of rain. Mitch recommended creating a sub-committee of residents bordering Lake 1 to manage the lowering.
There are now four downed trees in Lake 1 that should be removed by the homeowners but have not to date. Recent quotes for cost to remove are high - $4,000. Lee Chitwood volunteered to head a sub-committee to approach the homeowners.
It was recommended to clean-up the Spillway and have our landscape contractor quote on doing this work.
Jim Daum handed out sign-up sheets for the following committees: Lake 1, Security, Signs, Communications, and Government.
