Unfinished Business

  • Covenants/Bylaws: Waiting to begin next phase for adoption of proposed covenants/bylaws.
  • Long Term Capital requirements were discussed. Including the need for painting the interior of the clubhouse.
  • Lot #218, McRae & Stotlz, Landscape corrective action is to begin (mowing, seeding, round-up). An Avocet homeowner has agreed to water the lot. Purchase of hoses and sprinkles will be made.
  • Still need to repair the warped board at the base of the wheel on the playground equipment.
  • The termite bond/pest control service for clubhouse: needs major improvements first. Once the clubhouse repairs for water damage and foundation drainage are completed, a termite bond and pest control service will be investigated.
  • Janitorial services for clubhouse and restrooms were discussed. The pool contractor will be responsible for restrooms during the pool season; Molly Maid of Norcross has been hired to clean the clubhouse and restrooms once a month, year-round.
  • Highwoods Property: BOD is looking for a Neighborhood Representative to be our liaison with the property management company to stay updated on tree planting, lights and garbage dumping.
  • Repairs to the clubhouse/pool house, including fence painting, Bus Stop repair, Clubhouse/Pool House drainage, etc. will begin this summer. Funds were approved at the May and June BOD meetings.
  • It was determined that a 30 foot Natural Buffer zone will remain between Avocet property and Lou Ivy Drive. In this area, there shall be no removal of trees; however the addition of trees, shrubs and ground covers is accepted. Still need to make a decision of whether or not this will be included in the proposed covenants/bylaws.
  • Pool House restrooms: There is a sewer issue causing the toilets to be stopped up. It was approved to camera sewer the area at a cost of $150, to determine the severity of the damage and what corrective action to take.

Funds were approved, by Carrie Meersman, seconded by Paul Cernich, for the purchase of new locks for the timers.
