Minutes of MADWA Board Meeting

August 3. 2006

Held at Orv BratlandŐs home


The meeting was called to order at 3:00 p.m. and previous minutes were approved as written.



Karen Sturm gave the TreasurerŐs report. We discussed the issue of dues in relation to needs in the future.  It is felt that an increase is necessary to adequately fund needs. The Board will research other town home associations to get competitive data on fees charged. The issue will be discussed at the Annual meeting. Please look for a letter from Orv Bratland concerning raising of dues previous to that time.



The quality of work performed by Concierge this season has not been as expected in several areas including snow removal and irrigation service. We appreciate the work of the Volunteers committee in replacing sprinkler heads and adjusting them so we have less dry spots on our commons areas. A new controller system has been approved by the Board.



Orv will get quotes for repairing peeling stucco. We do have the original formula which was made available to us by Gary Gorham.



We still have the continuous problem and new complaints of animals running loose. A call to the city may bo necessary to alleviate the problem.



The painting has been done on our exterior doors and frames except for one home which will be done when the door problem is resolved.



The Board would like to know if there is any interest in going on a Hay Ride at Bunker Stables in the early fall. Please check the web site for possible dates and respond to Jan via email at jankmn@aol.com.



Orv and Elaine Bratland have generously volunteered to host our annual Christmas party. It is scheduled for December 8.


Meeting adjourned at 5:00 p.m. Next meeting scheduled for September 12 at 7:00 p.m. at JanŐs house.
