New Business:


  1. Harvey-Azalea Park: Paul Puck gave a report from his consulting with the City Zoning and Planning. These two lots were set up as green space. Engineered drawings and permits will be needed to build a structure to cover the fire pit. Currently we are paying $56 for each lot in taxes. Discussion was held about anything else that might be wanted on the lots. Howard Harmon will accompany Paul Puck back to the city for more information. A motion was made, seconded and passed to table decision on the Harvey-Azalea Park until there is more information regarding the taxes.
  2. Christmas Golf Cart Parade: A request was made for monetary support for the Christmas Golf Cart Parade. Christmas Golf Cart Parade will be alternated with the Mardi Gras Golf Cart Parade each season (not calendar year). Donations will be taken and will be reimbursed to the Park. A motion was made, seconded and passed to authorize up to $400 for the Christmas Golf Cart Parade alternating each season with the Mardi Gras Golf Cart Parade.
  3. Golf Green Flags and Cups: John Westereng and Mike Venker presented information about the need for new flag sticks and cups. A discussion was held to purchase heavier flag sticks and cups to with-stand the wind. A motion was made, seconded and passed to purchase the heavier flag sticks and cups from the Golf Course budget.
  4. Possible Bank Change: Bob Stamm presented information about changing banks due to IBC being less friendly and having lower rates than other banks. Bob visited eight banks. Lone Star Bank and Navy Army Credit Union had the best rates. Navy Army CU had the best rates for CD’s and checking. Lone star had best rates for short term CD’s. A motion was made, seconded and passed to open accounts at Navy Army Credit Union and Lone Star Bank.
  5. 2020 Budget: Several items were suggested to be included in the 2020 budget. The roof leaks in Wertz Hall. The roof is not the cause, it is the stucco deteriorating. Mike Manning is to get estimates on repairing the stucco or replacing it or getting new vinyl siding. Another possible improvement for Wertz Hall is replacing the flooring which is estimated at $15,600 for materials and $22,000 total with installation. Also, John Deere is to give us an estimate for repairing the used 790 John Deere Tractor that we purchased in 2014.
