MASTERS NVR VOTING (BY LAWS 3.12 & 3.13)
The current language was wordy- The Board streamlined language consistent with the Masters objectives and consistent with Pelican Sound Documents.
In additions the Board added language defining a majority polling vote consisting of 51members voting on issues to be a community opinion for the NVR to vote. It was noted residents have an obligation to vote on important issues a lacking a 51 % response the Board would advise the NVR on preferred vote for the community.
The proposed changes will be submitted to residents for comment before final Board approval

MAINTENANCE ISSUE- RESIDENT RESPONSIBILITY
Homeowner asked what is my responsibility when having my pool refinished on disposal of current pool water. We asked PS Administration to check with LEE County to ensure our response was correct. The response received per PSGRC Administrative Office:
“Lee County Utilities called me back this morning and said you are free to drain the pool into your yard, but NOT into the street or sewer. This may cause damage to your grass so I would check with your pool vendor regarding that issue. We should not be discharging directly into any lakes”
REPLACEMENT OF HURRICANE DOWNED CANOPY TREES
A conference Call was held by the Masters ARC Chair with Eric Long, PS, General Manager, Skeeter Siefert , PS ARC Chair, Denise William, PS Administrative Assistant.
Discussion included review of Lee County Rules, Village of Estero Rules and PS Documents on street trees. It was concluded that Street trees must be replaced and Pelican Sound Management will enforce existing rules and regulations.
