- We heard from one resident asking about a financial report that hasn't been presented.
- After that, the meeting was called to order and the community manager gave the report:
- Some residents have asked to see the ballots of the recent failed election. These ballots have been secured in binders to keep them from being tampered with and now arrangements are being made for the interested parties to review them. On a personal note, I have to question going through the expense of this. Simply put, the ballots are irrelevant becasue no quorum was reached. Yes, the board chose to appoint the top three vote-getters from the ballots submitted, but they were not required to do so. Therefore, the only possible conclusion that I can draw from this is that some resident(s) want to see my personal votes. Well, let's save everyone a lot of money. Why not simply take note of the election signs people put in thier yards (you know, Vote for Smith, Jones and Schmedly), then the people who have the most signs posted on lawns win the election - and everybody knows everybody elses vote. Short of that, I thought it was a secret ballot.
- Financial report is almost ready to be delivered to the baord. Some issues with a past office member have created a problem with the accounting. They are working to get it fixed. C'Mon people. If you expect some foul play, then call the police. Otherwise, give it a rest.
- Swimming has increased more than 3X the number ofver last year. Last year it rained every day. Today it was 102 degrees. You do the math.
- A pipe broke in a pool pump and a vending machine was vandalized.
- People are having a hard time adjusting to the new garbage collection system. Folks are parking their cans directly in front of thier garages. This is a no-no, per the City of San Antonio. Your ticket is forthcoming. The next edition of Passages will have some creative ideas on how to store your cans.
- Greenbelt between Timberwilde and Tezel is getting cleaned up this week. Workers are clearing spaces behind privacy fences to avoid fire hazard. FYI: some kids tried to light the place on fire and an alert resident busted them and put out the fire.
There were no committee reports other than it was announced that the GNWatch meetings will be starting at 6:30 PM, last Wednesday of each month versus 7:30PM. One person said that she had not received an e-mail stating that change so perhaps it was lost in the Internet. If you know someone on the Watch, let them know that next Wednesday it will be at 6:30PM at the lodge.
That's it. And now you know enough to pay your monthly Homeowner's fee!
