Sea Ranch Club 11/12/08

Sea Ranch Club …Full Board meeting 11/12/08…

7 pm meeting…to approve the 2009 budget…

One resident from Building B questioned the 10% increase in these hard times…and gave his opinions on the costs of services …insurance and other increases he had calculated had risen over the past 3 years anywhere  from 20-50%…covering specific examples..

He was respectfully informed of the recent renegotiations…previously posted for insurance…with our new company…as well as Comcast and in-house landscaping…and the current research into energy savings including changing lighting…solar panels…

The Association had an increase of 9.9% to have a cushion…after last years “hatchet job”…left the condo under funded to make through the year…

Other questions on renegotiations were answered with cold hard facts…beyond our control…such as Waste Management which is done through the Town…and price increases from FPL and appraisals over the last few years…

At 20 past 7 the Board unanimously approved the budget …

Following the approval a vote was taken to send out resident waive the reserves ballots……SRC residents have historically voted …for no reserves…this also passed unanimously…

Meeting Adjourned…

Special Meeting 7:30pm….

This was the first meeting to see if SRC would have a quorum and produce a vote of 50% + 1 to pass the new Board of Directors rules to elect members every 2 years…staggered…

The State passed new condo laws on Oct.1st for 1 year terms…unless it has been voted into the condo by-laws to do otherwise…out of 722 …362 votes were needed…this evening…a total of 270 were produced…A-113/B-64/C-93….which means a second mailing will go out…and the Board will reconvene to address this on Jan 9,2009 at 9 am…

Adjourned…

After the meeting…

This writer spoke to one of our Board members who is a Doctor and informed me that he took care of the 15 year old Dillard High School girl who was shot and killed this morning…so sad…

A Building Manager…corrected the previous information provided…on the Cabana C fire last week…saying it was not the newly installed fan…it was a smoldering pipe…and there was never any fire…in fact more damage came from the firemen… who had to cut into the inside and outside walls…expected procedurally by the firefighters…also informed we are still waiting for the Fire Chief and /or inspector to return…the Manager also commented how many firefighters there were in response to the incident…

Welcome Back to our Season Residents…

more to come…
