March 14, 2019 Meeting Minutes and Update

First of all, you can click here to see the meeting minutes from 2/11/2019 through 3/11/2019.

This past Saturday, March 9, 2019, a hardy group of volunteers met at the Sapphire Lake entrance. Their task was to pull up the MANY old shrubs which covered much of the 2 medians at that entrance. The crew consisted of:

Joey Armstrong
Danielle Bunch
Justin Caldwell
Richard Carter
Brandon Domingue

Richard Carter takes a break after winning a hard-fought battle with the deeply rooted shrubs.

These folks provided the effort, enthusiasm, tools, and even a winch! The HOA supplied cold drinks and a lot of heartfelt appreciation for the great job they did.

The shrubs proved to be no match for Joey Armstrong and his power winch!

In a short period of time, they managed to remove about 3/4 of the shrubs, along with the old iron edging which was in place. They also pulled some other weeds, etc. A small patch of shrubs remains, and will be removed soon. After that, sod will be laid down in place of the shrubs, and a nice border and landscaping will be done around the sign. The entrance will be much neater, better-looking, and easier to maintain when this project is finished.

Board member Justin Caldwell and his mighty axe. We may have to let Justin handle collections of past due accounts!

Again, our sincere thanks to those who participated! For everyone who missed out, there will be opportunities to work on this and the other 2 entrances coming soon!

We wanted to let everyone know that with the almost constant rains lately, we realize that keeping yards cut has been almost impossible lately. We will not send out any undeserved violation notices because of the bad weather. It’s affecting everyone! Once the soil dries though, be sure to get those yards cut as soon as you can, because we never know when the next monsoon will start!

Also, keep in mind that if you have clippings from lawns, shrubs, etc. Waste Management won’t pick them up unless they are in bags.

Since the departure of the management company, several residents have come to us on their own to pay their overdue balances. This is truly appreciated, and benefits our entire subdivision. In turn, we promise to do our best to spend Spring Lake’s money wisely.

There’s lots more going on, so we’ll be updating everyone again soon. In the meantime, let us know your suggestions, ideas, thoughts, or problems. We look forward to hearing from you!
