8:30am – 8:45am Closed meeting discussing ACC & legal matters 

 

The lawsuit against the previous homeowner of 1215 Weeping Willow has concluded. Below is a breakdown of the settlement costs received: 

  1. $338.50 in assessments (Unpaid HOA Dues owed)

  2. $343.75 in self-help expenses (Reimbursement of HOA provided lawn cleanup) 

  3. $376.14 in court costs and legal expenses 

  4. $7,856.50 in attorney’s fees incurred 

  5. $900.00 in additional attorney’s fees to draft Final Consent Order and finalize settlement  

  6. (3 hours *$300/hour) 

  7. $7,500.00 in reduced fines for the violations 

  8. $1,250.00 in additional attorney’s fees in connection with extension of deadline to complete repair or replacement of rusted and damaged gutters at Defendant’s request. 

Total: $18,564.89 

The defendant paid all legal fees the HOA incurred for the lawsuit, however, there have been other legal costs associated with this homeowner prior to the lawsuit being filed within this budget year with a total of $5,997.14. All monies received will go back into the budget category that they originally derived from such as the unpaid HOA dues will go back into the general account, the self-help expenses will go back into Grounds Maintenance, the legal fees will go back into Legal, and the amount from the fines will go into Legal as well to cover the additional expenses that were incurred prior to filing the lawsuit. The remainder of the fine money ($1,502.86) will stay in Legal for the 2022/23 budget year for the expenses that are sometimes incurred when habitual covenant violators need to be addressed legally once all other means of covenant enforcement have been taken.

Board Members Present:  

Samantha Cambre, Paula Langford, Scott Mueller, Melissa Telfer and Michelle Walts 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

 

8:30am – 8:45am Closed meeting discussing ACC & legal matters 

 

The lawsuit against one homeowner is set to conclude once all items in the settlement are completed by 02/14/2022. The sale of the property is scheduled for closing on 01/28/2022. 

 

Topics Discussed: 

 

ACC 

 

-ACC form has been updated on the website. It should be working properly, however if any pictures are needed, they would still need to be emailed to the board. 

- Adding a few items to ACC Supplemental Standards for consistency purposes throughout the neighborhood and for future HOA/ACC Boards. 

-The next ACC drive through will be February 19-20, 2022. 

- A few ACC letters have gone out to homeowners between drive-thru inspections due to habitual violations such as street parking, storing commercial vehicles on their property, lawn maintenance, etc. 

 

Tennis Courts 

 

-Tennis court resurfacing for late Spring 2022 has been scheduled & contract signed. Pickleball lines will NOT be added due to concern expressed by a few neighbors that pickleball lines would make it too confusing while playing tennis. The board ultimately decided not to put the lines on the courts to cut costs. 

-Two new tennis court benches will be installed at the time of resurfacing. 

-Tennis score keeper was replaced at the tennis courts because it was broken. 

-Total for resurfacing and tennis court benches is $6,108.00 and these costs will come out of the Long-Term Amenities Account. 

 

Playground 

 

-Playground fence still needs three pickets to be replaced and stained.  

- Received two quotes for playground mulch. The mulch is currently below the recommended level for safety. Play South, the company that installed the playground, will be installing the necessary amount of mulch in April 2022. The estimated cost of $1,350.00 is budgeted to come out of Grounds Maintenance. 

-Play South – 30 cubic yards at $45.00/yard $1,350.00 

-Taurus Landscape – 15 cubic yards at $75.00/yard $1,125.00 

-. 

 

 

Front Entrance 

 

- Mulch & pine straw was installed on 1/12/22.  

- Spot light at front entrance that had been flickering was replaced on 1/14/22. 

- New landscaping company was chosen, and a contract signed for two years with a start date of 3/1/22. The new company will save us $150.00 per month in maintenance costs, for a savings of $1,800.00 per year. 

 

Pool 

 

-Pool service is going up to $5,100.00 for 2022. This is up from $4,600.00 last year. 

-International diving tiles need to be installed per Cherokee county for 2022 pool season.  

-Pool parking lot needs repaired or completely redone. Tree roots are damaging the parking lot. It’s been very hard to get a company to come out for estimates. The following estimates have been obtained: 

-Johnson Paving – Patch Failed Asphalt $8,875.00, Re-do entire parking lot $23,266.00 

-Cecil Chambers – Patch Failed Asphalt $5,000.00, Re-do entire parking lot $18,620.00 

 

- Pool gate needs to be repaired because it is not closing fast enough to pass the county pool inspection for safety purposes. This has needed to be redone every year due to it being propped open. 

- The pool will need to be completely redone in 2023, possibly sooner. The current pool company will continue to patch the inner lining this pool season in hopes that this will give enough time to save the amount needed for the pool or an assessment may need to take place as the cost is very high and much more than anticipated. The estimated costs in total range from $28,920.00 - $75,139.00, not including any costs that may be incurred during the installation. The below quotes were also obtained during 2021 and may have since changed due to inflation. The following two estimates have been obtained for the pool work that will need to be done:

-An unannounced drive through inspection was held on May 16,2021. Many courtesy notices and second violations notices were sent out to the neighborhood.

-ACC form on website needs to be updated to allow up to 10 business days for an approval (not same day) and that work should not commence without approval

- ACC form on website also needs to be able to allow for more pictures to be attached to the form and when filling out homeowners should input more details such as attaching color samples for house painting, picture of type of fence that is being installed, etc. More details will help for a faster approval process.

-Wanting to add a sort of cheat sheet for ACC standards for the neighborhood so that from year to year the approvals/denials in what is allowed is more consistent and not dependent on who is serving on the board or ACC each year.
