WEST HARBOUR PROPERTY OWNERS’ ASSOCIATION
MONDAY, MAY 7, 2018 Hinkle Creek Elementary School Cafeteria
Annual Meeting Minutes
The meeting was called to order at 6:36 PM. In attendance were all members of the Board of Directors, 15 Association members, and Kevin Schwarz of Ardsley Property Management. A quorum was established by the association members in attendance.
We will continue with Pyles Pools for the 2018 season. The Board secured a three (3) year fixed-fee contract with Pyles Pools that locks in the cost of WHPOA’s largest ongoing expense throughout the contract period. The BOD anticipates that this will help to keep the annual assessment from a large increase in the future by knowing and controlling this cost. The pool cover has been removed, the pool cleaned, and deck chairs are out. The opening date for the pool is Saturday, May 26, 2018.
2018 Pool Hours: 10AM – 9PM Daily
10AM – 12PM without guard
12PM – 9PM with guard
3PM – 9PM during school days
Pool hours and rules are subject to change and may be adjusted as necessary. 2018 pool rules are posted on our website.
The Board eliminated lifeguard hours from 10 AM to Noon due to consistently low pool utilization during those hours. This change saved the association a significant amount of money and further contributed to maintaining the resident assessment for 2018 at its current level.
Pool, telephone, surveillance cameras, and key card systems are all up and running and came in under budget with no needed repairs.
Pool Key Cards can be used between 10AM – 12PM when lifeguards are not on duty – swim at your own risk. For a replacement pool key card ($25), contact Kevin Schwarz at 317.253.1401. If you are a new residents and did not receive the pool key card from the previous owner, please contact the property manager.
BUDGET: Kevin Schwarz
The 2018 Budget was reviewed. The association has received 95% of this year’s annual assessment, with 10-12 households still outstanding/delinquent. All 2017 assessments have been collected.

All residents are asked to keep up beds, yards (cut tall grass and treat for weeds), and perform routine upkeep on your home by repairing fences, house trim and gutters, repairing sheds, touching up external paint, and power washing your siding if needed.
