Old Business:

Secretary of state application needs check to be signed.

New Business:

Dough has been doing research to attend one of our meeting to discuss an 8 million dollar bond issue that needs to be past. An email was sent to Robert and broken down to to 3 issues…..roads and bridges and sidewalks, animal shelter. Doug did a formula for the next 20 years with no increase in property tax you are looking at a $10500.00 proposed to for 241 properties would be an increase of 25 million dollars in property tax for the next 20 years. It would be a burden for our home owners. Robert thought the city would come and fix all the sidewalks and just the ones that are bad, but don’t have 25 million in bad sidewalks. In proprietary they say that it would take care of all the sidewalks from here to end of time. The property owner is responsible for their sidewalks and the city can come in and say they have 60-90 days to fix your sidewalks. At that time the city can come back and say you haven’t fixed your sidewalk, we are going to fix it for you and access that cost against your taxes.

Jessica asked if we have a plan to reach the non-members and invite them to re-sign as a member. Asked if there is a standardized format to handle non-member. Vanessa will make a list on non-members.

Next meeting is April 11, 2017

8:35 p.m. Motion to adjourn ,Steven second, all in favor.
