Rules and Regulations: Gary Mohler reported that the park in all looks good. The house at 165 Jackson has been cleaned up. The county gave us permission to do this. We are almost there with the new version of the Rules and Regulations. Karen and I will be meeting with the attorney and discuss what needs to be done now. A specific window of time for the community to vote on them once it is ready, so please come to the HOA meeting to cast your vote. We are hoping that just changes can be made without having to reprint the whole thing.

CAPS: Karen Grant reported that Marcia Rockinson, Committee Chairperson, said that the police were at the last meeting and that they are again having problems with Bimini Bay, which is the area next door to us on the other side of the wall. There are people from Bimini Bay jumping the wall and coming into the park. Please make sure if you live along there that you lock your doors and lock up your items.
Presidents Report: Karen Grant said that LuAnn Debosz has taken over the Webpage for us. This is a big undertaking so please be patient. Tax appointments can be made on the computer now.
