ROTONDA MEADOWS/VILLAS CONSERVATION ASSOCIATION

BOARD OF DIRECTORS’ MEETING
NOVEMBER 16, 2016

The duly noticed Board of Directors’ meeting for the Rotonda Meadows/Villas Conservation Association was held on Wednesday November 16, 2016. The meeting was called to order at 12:20 p.m. Directors present were Noel Andress, Bill Lomax and Peter Traverso. Also present were Association Managers Dianne Beymer and Tim Freeman, four owners and Andre deQuervain and Tony Fiore from Fiore Construction.

A quorum of the Board was present so the meeting could proceed.

The order of business was suspended to allow Fiore Construction to present plans for the home they’d like to build in Rotonda Villas. It would be 1,672 sq. ft. including a pool on a 75’ x 100’ lot with a footprint of 60’ x 60’. If the Board approves the plans, they are prepared to proceed with permitting by the County, then construction. The Board reviewed the plans and invited the members in attendance to also review them. At Noel Andress’s suggestion, this issue was tabled until the December meeting when the new Board member will be seated. Mr. Fiore and Mr. deQuervain exited the meeting at 12:45 p.m. and the order of business resumed.

MINUTES

On MOTION by Peter Traverso, seconded by Bill Lomax, the Board agreed unanimously to approve the Minutes of the October 19, 2016 Board Meeting as submitted.

TREASURER’S REPORT

The checkbook, bank statements and Trial Balance reconcile. Expenses are in line with the budget with the exception of Legal, which exceeded the budgeted amount due to expenses related to the power and paving projects. This line item will be increased on the 2017 budget to allow for continuing legal expenses associated with these projects.

COMMITTEE REPORTS

Deed Restrictions: None

ACC: None

RMC: None

OLD BUSINESS

FPL Project Update: Tim Freeman spoke with Derek Rooney, who sent an email regarding the Attorney General’s opinion that was issued and that defined the scope of municipal services and expanded covered services. A new MSBU attorney is in place at the County as of last week and said the proposed MSBU for power is something that can be done. Moving forward, Tim Freeman and Derek Rooney will meet to discuss the situation and next steps. Mr. Freeman would like to present actual quotes owners have received from FPL to bring power to their homes. One owner said she will look for the one she received.

Road Paving: Tim Freeman is keeping in touch with MSBU advisor Tara Musselman regarding splitting the Meadows/Villas MSBU into two separate MSBUs.

Water/Sewer Connection Fees: Noel Andress spoke with Derek Rooney regarding the new connection fees. Mr. Rooney said this is a lower priority than power, paving and splitting the MSBUs. The Board agrees.

NEW BUSINESS

Fiore Construction Proposal: Discussed above.

OTHER BUSINESS

Member Comments: Members present commented on Fiore’s proposed model; they are afraid it might be an eyesore and not compatible with homes currently in the subdivision. They would like to see if the builder can provide a 3D computer rendering or actual pictures of similar homes. Discussion followed. The Board will pass their feedback on to Fiore Construction.

Payables: Payables were reviewed and checks signed.

Next Meeting: The next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, December 14, 2016, following the Annual Meeting.

ADJOURNMENT

There being no further business to come before the Board, the meeting adjourned at 1:25 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Dianne Beymer
Association Manager
