Spring is almost here. The most pleasant time in the Coachella Valley. The winter rains are nearly over and the summer heat has not kicked in. Enjoy it to the fullest. We should have a bumper crop of desert wildflowers beginning any day now.
The Annual Homeowner’s Meeting is coming up shortly. Make sure to plan to attend. It is one of the few opportunities you have to meet and catch up with many of your fellow Community neighbors. See article below for more.
The Board will be selecting the contractor to perform necessary street maintenance at their March 14th meeting. This is necessary every 3 to 5 years to optimize the life of the asphalt pavement. The Reserve Study currently is programming reconstruction of the street in approximately 2031. That planned date could be impacted significantly if the recommended maintenance program is not followed. So please do not get upset with the inconveniences surrounding the maintenance effort. And enjoy your nice black streets again.
You should be receiving your ballots for the 2019 Board election. This year’s election only has only 3 candidates submitting self-nomination forms for the 3 available Board positions. It will not have the suspense like that expected for the 2020 Presidential election. The good news is you will not be subjected too much campaigning.
Do not confuse this lack of suspense with any decrease in the importance of your ballot. The ballots submitted will be used to establish the required quorum for the meeting. If insufficient ballots are submitted the meeting will be required to be adjourned and reconvened again within 30 days. This would result is significant additional effort and some additional cost to you. Also, the Association made a “profit” of nearly $8,000 for the 2018 calendar year. This means that the ballot item for approval of the IRS Resolution to carry that profit forward into our operating budget will reduce our potential future tax liability.
To conclude, prepare to suck it up during the street maintenance and put out for the Annual Homeowner’s ballot and meeting.
