  2. Park Directory: Marty RicKard made a presentation to the homeowners regarding a color, bound, photo directory, to be produced by Life Touch Photography.  The Life Touch representative also gave a presentation and answered questions.  The directory would require each homeowner sitting for a photo. Life Touch does not charge for the directories, but hopes that homeowners will purchase their photos.  A hand vote of the homeowners indicated unanimously that they would like to go ahead with this project, and it will be set up for February.
  3. Budget Vote: Homeowners are being asked to vote on a number of budget items at this meeting. A brief synopsis was given by Bob Stamm, Treasurer, and he answered questions.  Some items on the ballot pertain to an increase in monthly maintenance fees.  Three options were presented:  No fee increase; a $10/mo increase; a $20/month increase with the addition of two new workers.  Other items being voted on were expenses that come up each year and Treasurer Stamm likes to have these approved at this meeting so it is unnecessary to ask homeowners to vote piece meal.  These include payment of taxes, payment of music royalties, payments to bands for the various dances.  The results of the ballot were that none of the items regarding monthly fees received the necessary 50% +1 vote needed to pass. There will be a run-off election between the no fee increase and $10/mo increase. The other items passed.
