Old Business:

Marilyn Clyne rescinded her motion to pursue the viability and subsequent costs of the awning.  During the summer, residents of the park thought it was not a viable expenditure and did not see the need for structure.  Ed Heckman stated it is to our advantage and donations would be available from Activities and the Picketball Club for some of the fees.  Conversation ensued regarding the costs, storage enclosure, getting more members involved in the decision process, mass email to members, and Website disclosure.


Motion made to donate funds to Activities.  The Treasurer stated that the funds were earmarked and could not be donated.  The President stated he had requested verbally as well as written a letter to the Association dated November 2, 2013 that water needed to be brought into the Park, specifically, recycled water for hosing off urine/feces and potable water for dog drinking.  Costs unknown.  Motion tabled.   Due to time limitation – old business was set aside.
