 Reports:

 

Reservoir – District Manager: construction of filtration plant proceeding at high speed.

 

Fire District – Chief: We're still in high fire danger. Lighting has already caused some fires. Please report any smoke instantly. U.S. is in shortage of firefighters however Boulder County firefighters are not traveling until the weather patterns changes substantially. Information about “Third Arm” will be distributed shortly. The “Third Arm” group will help with evacuations: traffic control and evacuation of pets. Fire department sent out DVD. Evacuation “Hot Sheet” is being developed covering evacuation routes and procedures.

 

Treasury – Treasurer (former): by Jack Walker, former treasurer.  Unfortunately treasury   spread sheet was not available.

 

Timber Lane Fuel Break – Project Manager Tim Triggs. Funds are used up for this 2-year project funded 50% by State and 50% by PBH. A grant application will be submitted in the fall, in hopes of obtaining matching funds for next year, in order to continue the project.

 

Beetle Busters – Member: Param Singh. Beetle Busters are a group of volunteers who check PBH trees for beetle infestation and then make recommendation accordingly. Up to date, they have inspected about 15 properties. So far, this year, infestation in PBH has been low.

 

 

Old Business:

 

Minutes from April 26 meeting – Secretary – moved, second, approved.

 

Dollar amount of future HOA dues: proposal to increase them to $100. Only about 65% of PBH residents paid dues in 2006. Need to encourage everyone to pay current dues. Start with thanking residents that paid, then start increasing pressure on households that have not paid. Reminder phone calls might also be very helpful. We might also want to set up check boxes with fee options of $50, $100, and $200. No actual motion was put forward. Discussion will continue at the next HOA Board meeting in September.

 

 

New Business:

 

Presentation of PBH HOA Mission Statement, as proposed by the HOA Board. – Time did not allow for this presentation.

 

Nomination of HOA Treasurer for 2007 & 2008: Dave Davies nominated

 

      The meeting was adjourned at 7:25 pm.
