Board members present were;

Joe Terrible

Roy Kulscar

The purpose of the meeting was to update the board on our legal position, and make a decision on the road work needed. Joe informed the board based on advice from our lawyer that we wait to have a second annual meeting until a judge rules on the papers filed to lower the percentage of owners required for a quorum. He also said that the papers were not filed back in Dec. as first thought, but were just filed a week ago as we needed our insurance company to okay the costs.

Terry read the January financials and stated that we have $38,567.23 in checking  of which $ 3000 are 2015 assessments and $35,500 was carried over from 2014.  We also have $12,239.51 in savings. He also stated that based on our vote last year to lower the savings account to $10,000 he wanted to make a motion  to pay for the emergency 1 mile grading from the savings account. Motion was seconded by Beverly and the vote was unanimous.  Joe then stated that we are still the operating board and can still conduct business but cannot use any money collected for 2015 until after a new budget is passed. Which means we have $35,000 we can spend. Roy then made a motion to do a 9 mile complete grading as soon as possible. Beverly seconded the motion and the vote was unanimous.

Terry stated he had already been in touch with A&S paving and we can get the around the 23rd of Feb. Terry will confirm on Tuesday. Joe then asked if there was any further business  and Roy made a motion to adjourn, it was seconded by Beverly and the vote was unanimous. Meetting adjourned at 7:46
