Elliott Farm Homeowner’s Association Board Meeting

Minutes of February 24, 2015

The meeting was called to order at 7:00 PM by President Chris Rodrigues.  Sean Bauer and Gordon Hill were in attendance.  Meg Paul and Shirleann Nold were absent.  Jim Nold was present as guest and acting secretary.

Minutes of January 27, 2015 were approved as read.

There was no Fire District 40 report.

It was reported that 88% of annual dues have been collected.  Homeowners with outstanding balances can make checks payable to the Elliott Farm HOA and mail them to P.O. Box 160, Ephrata, WA. 98823.  Annual dues fund maintenance of common grounds, permits, license, taxes, utilities, arborists and other special projects we face as a community.  This translates to a well groomed setting that will help maintain property value.

Gordon Hill, landscaping chair, discussed trees that will be trimmed in the Woodward area.  He will check with the sport court contractor regarding the surface warranty.  He is in process of receiving three bids on spring mulching.  Spring cleanup is scheduled for April 25-26.  Anyone wishing to use the thatcher and aerator should contact Gordon.

Sean Bauer reported no architectural submissions.

Old Business:  The newly painted Elliott Farm sign has been hung at the Gazebo.

New Business:  Homeowners will be sent instructions on use of the new website “NEXT DOOR”.  Our HOA is looking at new web page development.

REMINDER – trash cans should be off the street by Wednesday night.  All Christmas lights were to be removed by January 30th.

Neighborhood clean-up day along 140th will take place on March 28th.  Contact Chris at chrisrodrigues@comcast.net.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:46 PM.
