  • Roger Marchman presented information from a “do it yourself” gate company.  He is waiting for a call back from a representative for more detailed information, but the cost is much less than the first quote we received.

  • Common Areas – Dave and Linda Westenfelder priced new stone picnic sets for the common area at $350-$400 per set and suggested that we place a concrete slab underneath for stability and to make it easier to mow around. Jim Craft recommends that we put one in each common area (Erin Pond, Sweetwater Loop, Juniper Rd and boat dock).  Bob Bremser motions to make the improvements, Jim Craft seconds and the motion passes.
