Approval of Prior Meeting Minutes:
A Motion was made by Don Jancin to waive the reading and approve the meeting minutes of February 18, 2021 and March 16, 2021. The Motion was seconded by Susan Cohen and passed unanimously.
President’s Report: Dikran Ohannessian reported on the recent Pelican Sound Board Meeting in which the Pelican Sound Board will be discussing future Capital Improvements for the Master over the next ten years. In addition the Master discussed the installation of a lap pool and that more information should be available by September.
Treasurer’s Report: Susan Cohen reported that she has been involved in the payment approval process with Collier Financial and that she is currently awaiting the monthly financials from Collier Financial at this time.
Secretary’s Report: Don Jancin reported that the emergency contacts have been updated as we approach Hurricane Season.
Management Report: Heather Keel provided a report in which she reviewed the competitive bidding process and noted that multiple ARC deficiencies have been noted in the neighborhood. These items will be looked at further as the paint project comes to a close.
Paint Committee: Susan Cohen reported that the final homes are due to painted next week and then the Committee and Paint Contractor will work on punch out list items.
Tree Canopy Program Update: Jim Swanger reported that four canopy trees are in the process of being installed. To date one tree has been planted and three are pending installation. All four trees are Shady Lady Trees.
ARC Doc Updates: It was noted that the Association will update the ARC once per year. In addition, the Masters will monitor what Pelican Sound does and take into consideration their changes when doing the annual update. It was also noted that the addition of Shady Lady Trees needs to be amended in the current ARC documents.
Rodent Boxes: Heather Keel provided a report to the Board of Directors of Armstrong Pest Controls findings when completing the full inventory of the rodent boxes. Each home has three boxes owned by the Association that are serviced under the Armstrong Contract. It was noted that some homes have more than three due to owners adding boxes and that no more than three per home are serviced by the Association contract. The inventory of the boxes yielded a recommendation from Armstrong to replace 65 boxes that are in poor condition.
A Motion was made by Don Jancin to purchase and replace 65 boxes within the Community at a cost of $35.00 each for a total cost of $2,275.00. The Motion was seconded by Jim Swanger and passed unanimously.
Armstrong will install the new boxes at consecutive addresses and move any existing boxes in good shape to locations where they are needed at the other homes. This will allow the replacement program to be more easily tracked.
It was also noted that during the month of April the monthly service previously approved by the Board for January through April 2021 will be reduced to bimonthly. The next rodent station service will take place in June 2021.
A Motion was made by Susan Cohen to move to bimonthly service on the rodent stations. The Motion was seconded by Don Jancin and passed unanimously.
Irrigation by Mailboxes: An inventory of addresses in which irrigation heads directly affect the mailboxes was provided to management by Greenscapes. That inventory was in turn provided to the Board of Directors. It was noted that one homeowner had already had the head adjusted and was on the inventory and therefore Greenscapes will be asked to check the locations again. The Association also has an estimate for the cost to relocate heads that causing mailboxes to deteriorate faster than they should.
Vendor Analysis Project: It was noted that the Board will be reviewing all vendors and quality of service.
Adjournment: There being no further business to discuss, the meeting was adjourned at 4:10 P.M.
