Steve will notify all owners/residents of the schedule. New doors should be installed by this time and inside finish painting of these will be the owners responsibility. Work will be weather permitting for Buildings 4 and 5. Cost will be about $6,000 as we have 75 doors at $80 each.

Discussion regarding replacement of roofs of condo units was started with the first ones identified as 2 H and 3JI as they are leaking. More roofs are to be checked and we are waiting for bids before the final determination.
Some concerns still exist regarding the organic products that were used by Labadie Lawn Care. Discussion will continue.

Concerns regarding the hole in the asphalt driveway entering to the right  into River Ridge near the large rock before the dumpsters were discussed.

Discussion regarding the concern of safety for the number of dogs off leach, and the speed of which cars are entering and leaving our complex. A Speed Limit sign of 10 MPH is to be placed to notify people entering. Further discussion wording of Rules and Regulations will be done.
Liz Werth proposed installation of a kayak dock for ease of launching and docking to be attachedto the dock by Building 5, as this will be more convenient for residents to access from the parking lot. EZ Dock had been contacted with a cost of $2,168.00, delivered and installed. It was discussed that this amount could be available from the painting budget. A Motion was made to purchase by Sam Galzerano, Seconded by Cyndi Townes with a unanimous vote from the Board.
