Unfinished Business

  1. Financial Report (attached)

    The board reviewed the financial reports and detailed expenditure reports. There was some confusion about how to correlate the expenditures with the budget. The board asked Randy Fay to contact Tanya Hawkins, treasurer, to request a profit/loss statement which include budget vs actual.

    At this point the discussion led into landscaping concerns, since most of the budget items were landscaping items.

    • The pond was dredged this year. Costs to Ed Stehlin for pond dredging and repair of the irrigation system were higher than expected.
    • Ray and Christie Musser did the shrub trimming at lower than budgeted cost. (thanks!)
  2. Notice board was installed and new light for the "Montclair" sign at the end of the street was installed, both by Dan Bollig. Thanks!

Board Officers/Members:  Sandy Cooper, Don Krueger and Nancy Lewis were nominated to be Board members. Outgoing officers, Randy Fay and Ray Musser, agreed to remain on the Board.  The new officers will be Teri Cardell as President, Nancy Lewis as Vice President, Tanya Hawkins as Treasurer and Bill Cardell as Secretary.

Treasurer’s report: The report, as presented at the annual meeting, was again reviewed and is attached as part of these minutes.  

Landscaping:  Renee Edel volunteered to manage the landscaping contracts. A contract has been signed with Todd Coffin @ $55/per hour and with Ed Stahlin @ $40 per hour. Todd will be told to let Rene Edel know when he has reached $1600 in landscaping charges.  We will again trade non-mowing weeks for pruning time. 

$17,080 has been budgeted for landscape maintenance. Shrub trimming estimate: $2500 / $1600 is budgeted for 2014. Grub treatment contract: $850 (is not in the budget, but is being added into the 2014 budget). Sprinkler/Irrigation work will be done at $55/per hour with no contract. ($3000 is budgeted).

Ed Stahlin will dredge the pond this year for $750 - $800. The bid by Ed for the repair work to be done in the common area by Jack and Wilma Harbin’s house is $4080, but the original Xeriscape design was changed to remove the high point in the common area, add a swale and maintain grass in the common area. It was agreed the work needs to be done; a budget of $5K was approved. The bid by Ed for the repair to the landscaping by Walt and Carol Smith’s house is $2575; a budget of $2K was approved.

The fence around the retention pond needs to be repaired. Nancy Lewis will purchase sealant and a sprayer; Ray Musser volunteered to do the work.

Parking complaints: Complaints have been received by HOA residents concerning on-street parking in front of # 837 and # 835. Randy will call the owners to discuss the problem/resolve the issue.

To do project: Randy will send a list of member’s names that need to be updated with phone number and email addresses to Ray Musser to update the HOA’s spreadsheet.

Next meeting: June 12th at 7 pm at the house of Randy Fay and Nancy Lewis (# 848).

1) The HOA's landscaper, Todd said it will cost approximately $500 - $600 to fix Jack & Wilma Harbin's low spot in the fall.

3) Ray will obtain bids from both Todd and Ed to provide a non-grass landscape and will review the bids with Walt Smith. We have the funds to complete the work if it can be done this year. If the work cannot be done in 2013, the funds will be saved in the budget for 2014.

4) The HOA agreed to have both Todd and Ed make repairs as they see need to be completed, but if the cost is going to exceed $100, they are to contact Ray to obtain authorization.

5) The plans we left with Merrit will be retrieved by Randy and we will try to find another vendor. A letter will be prepared to present to Rich Sales (we want to collaborate with the Town of Palisade to repair the drainage ditch) and we expect to spend some money toward the repair.


1) The Treasurer's report was read and accepted. See attachments.

2) Susan Lasley resigned from the Board.

Randy Fay brought the meeting to order at approximately 4:30 pm. Attendees were Denny Wagner Sandy Cooper,Randy Fay, Nancy Lewis, Tanya Hawkins, Ruth Fitzgerald, Ellie N., Ruth Young, Renea Edel, Bill & Terri Cardell and Carolyn Pressler.
Randy went through the line items on the 2013 proposed budget. Ruth Young was concerned about the excess water wasted on watering and suggested that Todd continue doing the landscape and also take care of the irrigation to possibly monitor water usage better. The board will discuss how to better communicate landscape concerns to Todd. Members agreed to add a $600 line item for tree trimming which will come from the reserve fund. Tanya will look up who did work for us in the past and check on the cost. Renea will find a business to trim the trees and she will trim some of the smaller trees.
The HOA reserve fund will soon reach the initial goal of having one years worth of expenses saved. Ruth Fitzgerald will research if that is a resonable amount to have in reserve.
Members agreed that we should have the bylaws & covenance reviewed by an attorney since it has been almost 6-7 years since they were written.

Thursday 9/20/12

Randy Fay called the meeting to order at 7:14 pm. In attendance are Renee Edel, Randy Fay, Ray Musser, Tanya Hawkins, Vicki Miller, Susan Lasley and Bill and Teri Cardell. The board minutes from July 14th, 2012 were read and approved by the board.
Discussion began on the irrigation line that is now seeping through the ground onto HOA land west of Mike Horn’s property. The board discussed the options to alleviate the problem immediately and what long term solutions might be. Legal action could be too long term. Frank Watt with the city did a utility locate for the subdivision. Randy discovered that the water flow coming up at Ellie’s does correlate with water in the drain across hwy. Ray and Randy brought up the possibility that the water could also be coming from other sources. The board discussed stopping the water flow into the grate across the hwy and waiting a period of time to see if that would pin point the source. Ray made a motion to block the irrigation in cooperation with the town and the board agreed. The board also agreed to do a drain test before contacting an attorney.

John showed the board members a few areas of concern around the subdivision.
1. Erosion at the retaining wall at the drainage site along with debris prohibiting proper drainage.
2. Several dead trees in the common area. Possible replacement ideas included red wood trees or Susan suggested blue ash. John was given the information that it will cost approximately $250 for tree removal and the board has already budgeted for this expense in landscape replacement.
3. There are some bushes at Cathy O’Shana’s residence that is obstructing sidewalks and visibility issues to the south of her driveway. John suggested removing the bushes while other members thought major trimming may solve the problem.
4. Dry spots in the grass north of 857, 847 and at 837.
