Board Minutes 5/16/18


The duly noticed Board of Directors’ meeting of the Rotonda Meadows/Villas Conservation Association was held on Wednesday, May 16, 2018. The meeting was called to order at 12:30 p.m. Directors present were Noel Andress, John Brandenberger and Peter Traverso. Also present were Association Managers Tim Freeman and Dianne Beymer and two members.

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


On MOTION by Peter Traverso, seconded by John Brandenberger, the Board voted unanimously to approve the Minutes of the April 25, 2018 Board meeting as presented.


Financial reports were reviewed. The checkbook, bank statements and financial reports reconcile. Expenses are where they should be for this time of year. There are still two multiple lot owners (Cape Cave Corp. and Rotunda West Estates) who haven’t paid their 2018 assessments. Rotunda West Estates sold 81 of their 115 lots, and requested an updated invoice, which was emailed to them.


Deed Restrictions: Tim Freeman drove around the community and saw a non-conforming sign at 145 Wren; he will contact the owner. 29 Elm is still parking on the grass and has a trailer in the right of way. Mr. Freeman will contact the Sheriff’s Dept. about removing the trailer. He would also like to begin issuing fines for lawn violations. A Hearing Committee comprised of property owners (no Board members) will need to be formed.

ACC: None

RMC: None


FPL Project Update: The Directors discussed a letter received from Attorney Derek Rooney. Tim Freeman and Noel Andress were both told the Association had the green light on the project as far as the Commissioners were concerned. Mr. Rooney claims the County Attorney said since the County would not own the system, she would not recommend forming an MSBU for the project. Plan B would be to form a lighting district. Discussion followed on that subject. Peter Traverso would like to consult with Attorney William Sundstrom and/or investigate other options. Mr. Rooney was hired to lobby, which has not had any success. Tim Freeman spoke with Cari Piper of Cape Cave Corp. who said they have discussed Cape Cave bringing power to their lots, and then others could branch off from there. Discussion followed. The consensus is to contact Mr. Sundstrom to see if he can help. On a MOTION by Peter Traverso, seconded by John Brandenberger, the Board agreed unanimously for Tim Freeman to contact Bill Sundstrom, explain the situation and get a price quote for his services.

Derek Rooney also mentioned that if any of the Board members had a relationship with any of the Commissioners to reach out to them. John Brandenberger said he will contact Commissioner Truex.



According to members present, they still see boats, RVs etc. on weekends. Most of the activity occurs between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Tim Freeman will hire off-duty deputies to patrol on Memorial Day weekend – Saturday and Sunday, time to be determined.

Payables: Payables were reviewed and checks signed.
Next Meeting: The next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at noon.
There being no further business to come before the Board, the meeting adjourned at 1:15 p.m.
Respectfully submitted,

Dianne Beymer
Association Manager
