Approval of Minutes: The minutes of the April 12th meeting were approved.

Finance Report: A. Richardson reported that the printed financial report was temporarily delayed, but provided a verbal summary of the current status of our various accounts.

The proposed agenda was set aside to discuss settlement, class action suit, and the DPP.

DPP/Articles of Incorporation/Bylaws: G. Colbert reported that M. Spencer is working to secure Enchanted Lake Grade School Cafeteria for a meeting on June 29th, 2016. The entire membership of ELRA (those persons having lots specified in the existing Declaration Of Protective Provisions of March 12, 1962 and the Supplemental Declaration of Protective Provisions or September 23, 1987) will be invited. The purpose of the meeting will be to inform all members of the settlement of the litigation regarding the lake, as well as the status to update and extend the DPP documents in order for the members to retain their rights and authority regarding the lake. G. Gustavson will draft a letter to send to all members detailing the importance of this meeting. Many details were covered that will be discussed at the meeting, including the participation of Kamehameha Schools (the issuing authority for the DPP’s) and the need for the extending the documentation. Beverly Hiramatsu will be present to answer questions.

Lake Health: B. Bourke gave the scope of the water testing project to a local scientist and educator but has not yet received a quote from him. He reported that the needed periodic opening of the sand berm at the mouth of Kaelepulu Stream is about 6 weeks behind schedule despite the recent heavy rains. Two phone calls requesting action have been ignored. He will now send a letter. This monthly opening is essential to the health of the Lake. The level of the lake is at 2.3 feet.

Kukilakila (Boat Ramp) Dredging: Our attorney, Linda Paul, has the legal agreement to grant Goodfellows access to do the agreed on dredging. G. Colbert and James Adams need to confer on a timeline for this project.

Finance/Audit: A. Richardson is getting Accounting Solutions on board to start handling all assessments as of July 1, 2016. It was suggested by Mike Compton that we hire a professional billing firm. A. Richardson felt that Accounting Solutions might be able to present a more comprehensive bill than we presently have. This could include past, overdue, auto deduction, and possibly credit card payments.

G. Colbert initiated discussion regarding hiring Cadinha & Co. as our financial investment advisor. After discussing pros and cons, a motion was made by G. Lingle and seconded by A. Richardson to accept Cadinha & Co.’s proposal.

Kailua Neighborhood Board: B. Tassie attended the May 5th Kailua Neighborhood Board meeting. Gary Weller reported that work on both sides of the canal will require the removal of some magnificent trees. A representative of the city talked about a water quality project. G. Lingle is scheduled to monitor the June 2nd meeting and D. Vonier, the July 7th meeting.

Next Meeting Date: The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, June 14, 2016.
The meeting was adjourned at 9:28pm.
