III. Financial Update – Diane shared that the HOA has collected 90% of budgeted assessments. There are twenty-three owners past due including four owners who haven’t paid prior year assessments. All owners are in collections. Calvin inquired about the status of those in collections with McCabe Law. Diane will follow up. Calvin also inquired about collecting from the fence vendor who stole money from the HOA and went to jail. Diane will follow up with McCabe Law. Calvin noted that ARB requests would not be approved if annual assessments have not been paid.
IV. Violation Report & Rules and Regulations – Diane shared the current violation report with all Board Members and noted that several owners were scheduled to be fined; however, there is no Fine Appeals Committee in place. Residents and the Board of Directors exchanged ideas about street parking and updating the rules and regulations. After several discussions, Diane was directed to obtain a legal opinion from Crabtree Law to confirm that the current rules and regulations are enforceable – as they include items not mentioned in the Covenants and Restrictions. There were complaints about college kids having parties. Calvin will provide the name of the fraternity to Diane and she will make a formal complaint with UNF. There was discussion about people driving too fast and/or recklessly through the community. It was suggested that concerned homeowners call the JSO to alert them to the problem.
