Tree Study: Board members walked through all of the common property to review what condition various trees were in. The recommendation is for 16 trees and one limb to be cut down and left on common property.† A request for quotes has been sent to several companies, and we expect to hear back within the next few weeks.† The anticipated cost of tree removal, (anticipated completion at the end of June), will be significant. Also given the cost to KPWCA for tree damage after the winter storms means that more revenue is necessary.†


Budget: Jim reviewed the draft 2012 budget with two proposed assessment levels.† This increase is needed to cover the large amount of money spent on tree removal and damage as a result of this yearís winter storms.† Armand moved to raise the annual assessment to $40.† Joe seconded.† Approved 5-1.
