Secretary’s Minutes of the Nov. 16, 2019 meeting were approved. MSP Unanimously.

Treasurers Report : Attached. Overall account balances are good. Income is only under budget by $3000 and Expenses for plowing and sanding for Nov. and Dec. were only $14,000. Very low compared to last winter.  Of note the $200 waterfront expense was to remove the bees.  The accounts receivables are divided into 3 sections:

  1. Those that won’t pay until the land sells. These are just continuing to accumulate until then.
  2. Those paying on installment plans.
  3. Those that only pay when sent to collection. It was suggested that a last letter be sent from the HOLA President and Treasurer explaining the benefits of paying us vs. the lawyer.

Report was approved. MSP Unanimously.

Road Commissioner’s Report: Attached.  Real Estate Agent for Janet Ray’s (Brewster) properties has asked the status of the proposed road at the end of old Esker Way so she may list them correctly.  Janet Ray is in arrears, so she has no standing to ask for the road to be completed. However, when the property sells, the new owner may ask that the road be completed once they have paid their road fees and the $1000 new construction fee.  Then we will have to complete the road. Report was approved. MSP Unanimously.

Waterfront Report: Attached

Meeting Adjourned 9:35 AM.

Next meeting March 14, 2020 9 AM at the Barn.
