EXECUTIVE ACTIONS DISCLOSURE:
APPROVAL OF MINUTES:
Sean reviewed the minutes. Rashmi Shah made a motion to approve the Minutes from the August Board Meeting, Steve
Dhanjal seconded, all approved. Motion Carried (M/S/C 5/0).
Treasurer, Rashmi Shah, reviewed the August financials for the Board. Rashmi noted that large amounts of monies were
paid to Plumber without adequate explanation of the costs. The plumber did not provide a detailed report of the work as requested. Prior to the work being started, Carol requested from the vendor an
insurance rider that would name and protect the HOA as an additional insured party. This rider was never provided although the vendor continued to complete the work. Further, the vendor despite repeated
requests from the management agent or Board offered no warranty for labor or parts. The Board resolved not to use this or any other vendor unless these stipulations are met in the future.
Chris Hernandez made a motion to approve the Financials ending August 31, Miguel Chavez seconded, all approved. Motion Carried (M/S/C 5/0). Rashmi requested that no additional CD's be opened at
this time as she feels that it is necessary to keep extra monies liquid in order to pay these plumbing costs.
Pew, 2272 Oak Haven Ave: Homeowner was asked to submit pictures of the windows and sliders.
No pictures were submitted. RIA conditionally approved. Contiinues.
Chavez, 5309 Rain Wood: Homeowner requested approval for new windows and sliders.

reviewed. No approval given at this time.
Kitamura, 2302 Oak Haven Av: Homeowner submitted an RIA: for painting residence exterior, installing an HVAC add-on, changing the front door to blue, and installing two (2) custom-made side gates.
Spa and Patio Lights, Walkway Lights: All repairs to lights have been made. CLOSED
New Motion Detector Light: Light was installed by American Electrical. CLOSED
Broken/Cracked Walkway Sidewalk:
Raised sections of the Common Area walkway between light poles #3 and #4 pose a potential tripping hazard. The Board would like to remove, level, and replace sections. Chris could not obtain a quote for this by meeting time. Carol and Steve will obtain quotes from two (2) vendors to have these repairs done.
Continues (Actionee: Carol and Steve).
Pool Security: Two (2) bids were obtained from security vendors to check the HOA pool once a night after closing to
prevent homeowners from using the pool after hours. Carol will ask security companies to attend Board meeting and make presentations during the September Board Meeting. A.J., from Secural
Security, and Sami, from Citiguard, were present to discuss their companies and answer Board Members' questions regarding services they would provide. Continues (Actionee Carol).
Dog Debris in the Common Area: Chris Hernandez and Steve Dhanjal did not attend a Board meeting at
Springtime as intended; however, no further action will be done on this issue. Carol ordered signs to be installed throughout the parkway. Signs will be 24"x36" affixed to steel posts and
lettering will be green. Continues (Actionee: Carol)
Carrotwood Tree Debris: The Carrotwood tree (#89) adjacent to the east pool wall continues to shed leaves during
this part of the season, but more detrimentally, drops nut-like seeds onto the pool decking and into the pool. Jose, from custodial services, tells us that some of the seeds are being stepped-on by homeowners
and mashed into the decking pavers, making clean up difficult. Colin, the pool maintenance man, reports that some of the 'nuts' float and are sucked into the nearby skimmer clogging the weir and
ultimately damaging the filter. Chris planned to discuss this issue with Kerry, however, due to conflicting schedules Kerry and Chris were not able to coordinate to discuss remedial actions this month
. Continues (Actionee: Chris)
Cost Recovery Actions (insurance claim) for Cabana Water Pipe Refitting: Carol contacted State Farm Agent Ron
Raushenberger for guidance and to initiate claim. He deferred to the Claims Division, who indicated that each action must be identified before the insurance adjuster will determine which repair actions will
qualify for reimbursement. Chris will work with Fonz, (plumber from Point of Connection) to itemize each restoral action taken during the re-fit action. The list will then be used to initiate a
claim. Continues (Actionee: Chris)
Various newsletter articles were suggested by Board members and homeowners present. Sean will contact Frank Boardman
regarding writing the newsletter.
