The August Community Meeting was called to order by Joe Blount, Board Treasurer, at 7:00 pm on Thursday, August 9, 2018, at the Walnut Creek Clubhouse. Board Members in attendance were Joe Blount, Gary Droege, Halley Freeman, Mike Howell, Jacqui Maiseroulle and Tyler Unsell.  Board Members Scott Eiken, Ken Emerson and Siobhann Williams were unable to attend.

Joe Blount welcomed all guests.

The Board approved minutes for the July monthly Board Meeting (July 12) and the July special Board Meeting (July 26).

Old Business:

Board Members approved a request from the Administration Committee for continuation of privilege suspensions for those violating restrictive covenants.

Tyler Unsell reported on the Preferred Vendor Program referrals from the community. As of the Community Meeting, only three vendor referrals have been received.  Based on the limited response, the Board determined not to pursue the Preferred Vendor Program at this time.  An article updating the community will be included in the upcoming newsletter.

The tennis court drainage issue is still being researched and the Board will discuss further once dirt work calculations and overall project costs have been determined.

Work on both Storm Water Grant projects is anticipated to start in September. Contractors have been in contact and are ready to begin the projects.

Mike Howell reported on the July 4th pool incident.  Sheriff’s Department Investigators have concluded their investigation and forwarded the information to the Prosecutor’s Office.  Once reviewed, the Prosecutor’s Office will be in contact with the Association regarding next steps.

The Administrative Committee reminded the Board Committees of the need to provide Committee Action Reports to the office including decisions and actions taken by Committees and Committee Members. These reports are a statutory requirement for nonprofit / not for profit corporations in the State of Missouri.
