Insurance: Mitigation reports now 5 years old. If you think you qualify for discount, like having hurricane windows or shutters, contact a contractor.  Cost about $99 and you could save about 30% on your policy.

Legal: We are down to 2 foreclosures from a high of 22. I have to keep reminding our lawyer of actions I feel he should be pursuing, and provide him with updated reports from our accountants. These are now complicated cases, involving a lien that has not been satisfied, and a bankruptcy. One bank is claiming Safe Harbor that I don’t believe is justified. (Full report attached to office minutes)

Gloria Sheriff is our new office assistant temp. She will be organizing and managing the office, and helping with other tasks that Bob needs done, since we are so short of volunteers. She also will be taking the Board minutes until Christine gets back. Be sure to introduce yourselves.

Ray Kerce asked to keep the pool open until 9 p.m. thru September due to requests. Gino made a motion to keep it open from dawn to dusk. Duane made the 2nd, but they were the only 2 Directors who wanted that, and it was voted down.  James Simone made a motion to keep the pool open thru September until 9 p.m., Kirk Murray made the 2nd, and every Director voted for it except Gino and Duane, so the motion passed.

James Simone said Betty Kugler wants to come back to the Cluster and needs a chair lift. The President told the Director he has to go to every unit owner in Cl. 9 to see if they want one. Several people pointed out negative reasons for installing one, including their narrow stairway.

NEXT MEETING: July 23th 2015.
