January 24 WHPOA Meeting

WHPOA HOA Meeting January 24, 2017 at 7PM 12 Residents Attended at Hinkle Creek Elementary East Cafeteria Old Business- Former Pool Management Company contract non renewed Bridge  Vandalism Trial January 6 - Judgment for WHPOA with treble damages and attorney fees, defendant has 60 days to appeal New Business Greg: Gave an overview of Budget Process - All services were bid out and local companies used as much as possible. Landscape maintenance and mulch contract changed to YardNut (WH resident owner) which resulted in a significant cost savings. Pool & Guards - Three bidders, we are  contracting with Pyles Pools of Noblesville. Will have one guard on duty for all open hours during the 2017 season. Contract is all-inclusive. New Furniture - Must buy all new pool furniture as strapping cannot be used to repair and the cost to re-sling current furniture is more than replacing all of it. New furniture will be the strapped type. Pool gate will be modified to prevent unauthorized entry & improve security. Video Security Cams will soon be installed to improve pool, grounds, (and parking lot security if wireless will work from there). New signage will be posted for parking lot regarding overnight parking after 10 PM. Greg announced the $396.00 Property Owner Assessment for 2017. Ardsley will send letters out February 1. Budget has a shortfall but the Board will use reserve funds to make up the difference to honor the commitment made last year to roll dues back to prior level. He went on to discuss how all costs are rising and that this may very well be the last year that the assessment can remain at the current $396.00 level. Any potential increase will be kept as low as possible. Kevin Schwarz: Reviewed budget line items for 2017 and answered resident questions regarding the budget. Spring Garage Sale dates April 27, 28, 29 Next meeting date: TBA
