September 2017 Minutes

Enchanted Lake Residents Association, Board of Directors Monthly Meeting Minutes, Tuesday, September 11, 2017

Present:  M. Novack, S, Oshiro, D. Vonier, A. Richardson, B. Tassie, B, Molyneux, S. Harding, J. Fernie, J. Compton, G. Lingle, M. Spencer (Administrative Assistant), and C. Turner (Webmaster).

Absent:  M. Compton, G. Colbert, R. Castanha and G. Gustavson.

A quorum was called and the meeting was called to order at 7pm by M. Novack.

Approval of minutes:  The minutes of the July 25th meeting were discussed. A. Richardson moved to approve with corrections.  Motion was seconded by J. Fernie.  The minutes of the August 10th meeting were approved by B. Tassie and seconded by A. Richardson.

Finance:  A. Richardson reported that funds had been transferred to the Capital One money market account and the Schwab brokerage account.  CDs are to be purchased from the Schwab account to mature at different times to allow for payment of the dredging.

Dredging:  S. Harding reported on the status of the project and briefed a dredge scenario to be presented to the Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). In summary, preliminary dredge plans are complete and moving forward with OCEANIT to set up conference with USACE (9/29/17) for pre-application permit meeting.  OCEANIT is currently on budget but slightly behind original schedule largely due to delays with gaining right of entry access for hydrographic surveys.  This delay should have little or no impact on the overall project.

Lake Maintenance:  A question was raised about the water testing reports done on the lake.  C. Turner will check with B. Bourke as to their location and get copies for us.  S. Oshiro offered to take over negotiations with Jason Akamine regarding lake cleanups. C. Turner researched floating containment booms.  These can be anchored or tied to shore in front of the mouth of a city and county drainage outfall.  It would trap trash that flows into the lake during heavy rains. Photos or weight of this trash could be very helpful in our endeavors to insist the City clean their drainage system emptying into the lake. Our cleanup times would be shortened as the trash would be contained.  Two yellow 50 foot berms would cost $1670 delivered.  B. Tassie moved to approve the expenditure and it was seconded by. S. Harding.

Strategic Plans:  The October 14th Annual Meeting to be held at Mid-Pac Country Club was discussed.  A. Richardson has prepared the Annual Budget sheet to be shown during the meeting. B. Molyneux asked that we all be on the lookout for potential new board members.

By-Laws:  A lengthy discussion of the 7th draft of the new by-laws was led by M. Novack. She will do all changes we agreed upon and make draft #8 and give a hard copy to G. Colbert for his approval.

Next meeting date:  The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 10th, 2017 at 7pm at the A & B meeting room.
