Old Business


Beginning of New Fiscal Year Tasks – Penny reported that all new fiscal year tasks listed on the Checklist for the Beginning of FY23 have been completed.  (See below for unaudited financial statement.)


Unaudited Financial Statement – Barbara reported that King & Walker, CPA’s, notified her that the FY22 unaudited financial statement is complete and ready to submit to County Management & Budget.


Hurricane Debris Along Casey Rd. Wall – Penny reported that letters had been mailed to the two property owners (based on County property records) to notify them of their responsibility for removal of the debris that fell from their backyards during the hurricane.  Wendy reported that she spoke with the resident responsible for the dead bougainvillea, and within a few days the debris was cleaned up.  However, the resident responsible for the fallen oak tree branches called Penny after receiving the letter and was uncooperative.  Therefore, Wendy and Allen removed the branches and disposed of them.  Trustees agreed that Board members should not have to perform tasks that are the responsibility of property owners.


New Business

There being no further business, Penny made a motion, seconded by Steve, that the meeting be adjourned at 7:22 p.m. The motion was approved by a vote of 7-0.
