  1. Financial Review—Jeremy submitted the financial statements and the board members discussed.

 

  1. Jeremy pointed out that the fiscal year ends September 30.  Members are considering whether to add another dumpster day for fall.

 

  1. Academie Lafayette Parking Sign Update—the city has installed a “no parking, 7-9 a.m. and 3-5 p.m. M-F” sign on 69th Street.  This is in effect between Cherry and Oak on the north side.

 

  1. The Annual Meeting Plan—meeting is set for November 10.  Christina has reserved the Legacy Center (lower level) at St. Peter’s.  It was decided on Waldo pizza again, along with other side items because the expense is significantly less than previous vendors. Board members are considering topics for the annual meeting and whether to bring in a speaker this year.  A facilitated and guided discussion of residents’ concerns may be the program.

 

  1. Island Maintenance/Shrub Planting Update—Clayton mentioned that the landscape company is installing the new shrubbery (boxwoods) in September.

 

  1. Flea Market —one business owner and residents have wondered about the open-air market that had been going on just east of Oak on 63rd.  Clayton has called the city (311) and officials are checking into it.  He will provide an update in September.

 

  1. Newsletter—the second issue of “The Acorn” arrived in mailboxes on August 19.  Kudos to Jon and Sean for such excellent work, and thanks to Clayton for the two ads in the Acorn purchased by business owners in the neighborhood.

In attendance: Clayton Snodgrass, Christina Wright, Aaron Wright, Bill Blanck, Patty Feuerborn
 
1) Financial Review—Jeremy submitted the financial statements to Clayton because Jeremy was on vacation.  Clayton sent to all board members.
 
 2) AT&T Box, 622 E 65 box blocks his view of traffic as he is backing out of his driveway on to Holmes.  The owner has hired an attorney to represent him.  Because the box is the property of AT&T and is in the utility right-of-way, the owner and his attorney will work with the city and AT&T for resolution. Clayton mentioned that a similar situation happened in Armour Hills before the box went in. He offered to contact the city as well to see if he could get information. Board members discussed inviting John Sharp, our city councilman, to a meeting in the future.
 
 3) Fall Events—the annual meeting will happen on November 10.  Christina will check with St. Peter’s to reserve a meeting room.  Members discussed the possibility of another fall event at Holmes Park but have not picked a date.
 
 4) Newsletter Topic Review—Clayton mentioned that Jon Goodman is working on the next issue and has also sold two ads to defray costs.  Small business owners who live in or near the neighborhood bought the ads.
 
 5) Island Maintenance Update—Clayton mentioned that the landscape company is maintaining and watering the islands, and is installing the new shrubbery in the fall.  He mentioned that is the appropriate time for installation.

O)MG Board Meeting Minutes, April 16, 2013

Attendees – Clayton Snodgrass, Bill Blank, Christina Wright

Financial Review – There isn’t much to discuss.  The admin fee was paid (?), annual insurance for officers  and HOA ($865) is up for renewal, Clayton will sign and return ASAP.

 

Academy Lafayette – (This was noted in the newsletter).  Clayton, John (the newsletter editor), Jill (our AL liaison), a traffic liaison, officer, AC communications person and principal wre present at a meeting regarding traffic. The new street rules for 69th Street between Oak and Cherry will be; No Parking 7-9, 3-5 on the North side and No Parking except for busses on the South side.

 

Garage Sale – May 18 – Clayton will hang banners the week prior. No other preparation needed.

 

Dumpster Day – June 1, 9-12 –  Aaron says that the dumpsters are ordered, he has talked to the electronics people but it’s not likely that they will be there since they aren’t returning calls. Aaron will request a check from Jeremy.  Clayton and Bill will bring trucks for hazardous waste removal (that will end once the trucks are full).

 

Open Board Meeting Plan – May 21 – We have a reservation for the St Peters Legacy Center basement. There will be NO food but Christina and Clayton will both bring large jugs of water , Christina will bring cups, and Clayton will bring coffee and prepare an agenda for the meeting.

 

Summer Social –  June 9 – Christina hasn’t gotten much done at this point but is on top of it.  We will be on Cherry Street between 66th and either 65th Terrace or 65th Street (depending on what approval we can get).  We will order BBQ from The Stack and have residents bring sides, pot-luck sytle.  We are hoping that Jeremy will resume his position as game master this year. (Jeremy?)

We will attempt to procure the Google Fiber ice cream truck again this year, which Clayton thought would be likely since they are getting closer to implementation.

 

Island Maintenance – Lance is behind but Clayton has checked around and other landscapers are behind as well due to the weather we’ve had.  Lance plans to start replacement of the bushes in around ten days and has repaired the lion monument at 65th Terrace and Oak, the city should send a check to reimburse us for that cost.
