Treasurer Updates:

 Budget meeting next Tuesday, October 27th – Budget Committee:  Kurt Karsten, Renee Rubin, Tim Jaeger, Bill Thomas, Tom Osborn. 

  • All are expected to show for this meeting
  • Draft budget will be sent out by Jay by Friday, Oct 23rd

 Maintenance Report: 2016 Capital Acquisitions

  • New pool cover has been ordered; they were on site on 10/20/15 taking measurements. The expense should come out of 2015 budget
  • Deck repairs- Jay and Mickey inspected one of the deck frames where a collapse had occurred. The frame is in decent shape but the Trex cover boards were not. Jay recommends installing new Azek decking over the existing pressure treated frames where possible; repairing frames where necessary. Jay’s rough estimate was $1,000 per section, with 19 sections to be done. The Board discussed repairing a few sections a year to spread the cost out over time and try using volunteer labor to replace decking but purchase the materials.

 Motion to budget for replacement of 6 sections of decking in 2016 at $1000 per section. Seconded and passed unanimously.

 Fence Replacement –Bill Thomas will provide us with some fence proposals and information on fencing companies for replacing the perimeter fence along the south and east perimeters, including the two through gates and the short section along the west side to the building. Jay will put a placeholder amount in the budget for 2016 in the amount of $17,000.00 for fence and gate replacement.

 Landscaping – will revisit at the next meeting and Jay will provide more information on the current landscaping proposal.

 Tiki Bar– Jay will put a placeholder in the 2016 budget for $1000 in materials cost; Kurt will organize volunteer labor and donations for additional materials.  Location will be down by the shrubs on the NE corner along Herndon Ave. near the bay. 

 Additional furniture- Jay will put a placeholder in the 2016 Capital budget fopr furniture replacement to include $3000 for Adirondack Chairs to go on the slope on the bay side of the pool, and for replacing lounge chairs – Jocelyn/Mary will find out the cost of each chair.

Mary Snowdon motioned to remove the 15 BRCA “rescued” padded chairs from the pool rental closet at Cheryl Lytle’s request, as they have not been used in years and they are taking up valuable space.  Renee Rubin seconded the motion; passed unanimously. Cheryl Lytle will offer them on Craigslist for free. 

Meeting adjourned at 9:40pm
