VICE PRESIDENT Bill Loftus reported in new business


Secretary  Ed Lehner had nothing to report.


TREASURER Peter Fenner reported the budget was approved by the board for a vote to waive the statutory reserves. He understood that questions are being asked about the reserves and why the board is requesting to waive the statutory reserves for the building. The statutory reserve that is mandatory is $145,000, to his knowledge it has never been fully funded. When he started on the board it was a $5000 amount that was being put into the reserves. In 2015 we budgeted $50,000 to go into the reserves and for the year 2016 we budgeted 100,000.  So the alternative is to either fully fund the reserves or be assessed if anything is to arise. We have not had an assessment about 10 years ago no one really likes assessment.  Another alternative is to increase the maintenance fees by fully funding the reserves and again no one likes that. We are working hard to get to the amount to fully fund the reserves and hopefully for the year 2017 we could fully fund the reserves as we are at $100,000 funding the reserves. With this budget the top six front of the building will be paying an increase of a max of three dollars per unit and the others will go down in their maintenance.  At the present time we have $ 230,000.00 in our reserve account.  Peter also stated that the monies that has been collected for the renovation of the clubhouse is all account for and has not been used.
