Call To Order:  Patricia Hawkins 

Pledge of Allegiance:  President Patricia Hawkins called the July 26, 2018 Board of Directors Meeting to order at 7:00 p.m.

The Meeting began with the Pledge of Allegiance.  

Presidents Report: Patricia Hawkins

Those of you who read the agenda in advance of tonight’s meeting will note that the Board of Directors will be voting to fund two new amenities – a shelter in the marina area and a Pickle ball court behind the pool shelter.

We are voting on these now because they are essentially holdovers.  Both amenities were “greenlighted” by previous boards before funding became an issue.  In fact, we had gone so far as to grade the area behind the pool shelter for the Pickle ball court.  Tonight’s vote will bring closure to these projects that have been in limbo for so many years.  

Another motion we will vote on this evening is language binding the POA to the same architectural standards that cover property owners.  This means that future structures, or changes to structures, must comply with all applicable architectural rules and must be approved by the all appropriate committees.  If approved, it will be added to our Operations Manual.  This language was requested by your Board of Directors because we believe that the POA should be held to the same standards as all property owners.

Treasurers report:   Robert Starks

All amounts are rounded to the nearest dollar.

  • ïApproval of June, 28 2018 Board of Directors’ Minutes.

Motion made by Tom Hamilton and seconded by Scott Giska to approve June 28, 2018 Meeting Minutes.  Motion passed 4-0.  Abstained-1

Community Managers Report:  Bruce Keller

We have two RFQs out now.  One for paving our roads and another for the replacement of a culvert pipe on Ridgewood.

Don’t forget the Luau on the 4th of August.  

Remember your second half dues and assessments need to be in by the end of July.

Golf Course Managers Report:  Bruce Keller

The midpoint of our 2018 has come and gone.  Our rounds for July are right on where they were last year at this time, so consequently we are still roughly 1000 rounds down for the year.  We still have time to make it up, and I am hopeful that with some continued good weather, we can do just that.

Our 2018 Junior Golf Program was a success.  Brian, our Pro, introduced 9 kids to the game of golf.   He is currently giving lessons to a group of kids from St John’s.  We also hosted the Greater Cincinnati Golf Association Junior Tour on July 19th.  It was very impressive to see so many kids playing so competitively.  The more young people we can introduce to the sport, the brighter the future looks for the game.  As a reminder, join us on our “Family Sundays” where, after 4:00, kids ages 8-17 golf for free with a paying adult.  

We have some really great events coming up in the month of August.  

-Monday 8/6 is the “Pat Sullivan Memorial”.  It is open to everyone.  We would love to have a full course to be able to celebrate Pat.

-Friday 8/10 we are hosting the Young Professionals of Lawrenceburg “goofy golf outing”.  I don’t know what that is either, but it sure sounds like fun.

-Monday 8/13 is the outing for the Dearborn County Foundation.  Proceeds from the golf scramble support the Foundation’s mission to create a permanent legacy through endowed grant and scholarship programs that forever give back to the Dearborn County community.

-Monday 8/27 is the United Way Outing for Dearborn and Ohio counties.  The United Way offers a lot of help to local families in need.

We invite everyone to join in any of these outings and to help make these events a greater success.

Just a reminder that all residents receive a “yellow pass” entitling them to bring a foursome for cart fees only to play 18 holes.  If you would like to walk the course, the round is completely free.  Use these passes.  If you don’t golf, I am betting you know someone who does who would love to come play our course.  Give it away, sell it, or donate it to a fundraiser.  It has value and it would be a shame to waste it.

This coming Monday July 30, as well as August 20, we will have another “Open Play Monday”, so bring a foursome and come out and have some fun.  There is also a special rate for these days, which is $25.00 for 18 holes and $15.00 for 9 holes, which includes your cart.   Call our Pro Shop to set up a tee time for your group.  Information on the outings, private lessons, small group outings such as family reunions, and membership deals are all available in the Pro Shop.  Stop by and see what we have to offer.

Safety, Security & Elections Committee Report: Bonnie Starks

 We had our meeting July 3rd and went over all of the Town Hall Concerns.  I have combined several ideas because they are referencing the same subject.  After much discussion between all members and key personnel, our suggestions are:

Change Pool Zone to 15 mph all year: 

We agreed to the 15 MPH all year and suggested using a speed table going across both lanes. Our chief deputy, Dave Wismann, suggested using a new attention getting device called the Reflective Spin Alert. These would go on the top of the Speed Signs. They use the wind to move around and the cars’ lights make them reflect at night. No batteries or electric is needed. 

Speed signs with flashing lights:

Some homes may find the flashing lights invasive.  We are trying the new Spin Alerts first.  They are less expensive and maintenance free also.  

Paint speed limit and/or yellow stripes on the road:

It was determined that with traffic the paint would not be effective very long.

MORE speed bumps or speed tables:

We are going to upgrade to speed tables which will prevent drivers from going around the bump.  The need for more tables will be investigated.

Revise Deputy’s Report for more statistics:

Dave Wismann is compiling information on speeding, locations, and other citations.  He will present more detail to the Safety Committee.  This report is published in the Echoes every month and shows the accumulative infractions.  Look for an online video also concerning this topic.  Dave is investigating all options to curb speeding.  As of today, his deputies have issued 40% more speeding tickets.  

TODD LISTERMAN ROAD STATS:

Mr. Listerman has given Bruce Keller the Traffic Counts.  Bruce is checking if there are any speed statistics we could get also. 

Get information out about reverse 911 & medicine dropofflocations:

Rich Gannon has investigated both of these subjects and will publish the information on our different media platforms.

People getting on boats w/o permission of the owner: 

The Maintenance Department already put up signs at Willie’s. They are making sure signs are at all public boat docks including the beach. These signs state that there is to be no unauthorized boarding of a boat.  Under our Trespassing Rule there will be fines issued for infractions.  

Look into fines on drinking and boating: 

It was determined that Paul Rolfes, our lake patrol, stop any boat that appears to be driven by an intoxicated person.  If he finds this to be true, Paul will insist on another driver, remove the boat from the lake, or call the deputy.  This is the boat owner’s choice.

Paddle BOATS, canoes and kayak safety:

As for the non-motorized boats it was determined that a survey be taken of the community as to having mandatory classes for the operation of such water vehicles coordinated with Dave Patterson.

NEEDLE COLLECTION BINS AT THE POOL AND BEACH:

There will be Sharps Containers at these locations.  Just ask a Life Guard to get one for your use.  The Deputy Station at the Main Entrance already has one.

Use stickers for HVL residents’ cars to aid deputies in identification:

This system was used in the past and did not seem to help the deputies.  We will look into it again after we have more information.  

Dave Patterson, Lot # 1533, asked about the survey for kayaks, paddle boats and canoe safety.   The Lakes committee is already working on putting classes in place.

Dave felt it would have been best if the Safety Committee came to the Lake Committee first about the survey.  

Ken Horn, Lot # 2790, concerned about the speed limit around the pool.  He wanted to know the reasoning for the speed limit change year round.  Bonnie said that there are children around the pool area year round.  

Phil Heitz, Lot # 2730, asked about the speed tables.  The speed tables are designed for the speed limit they want to post.  There was some discussion on this.  

Dick Myers, Lot # 1663, discussed the rolling signs in HVL.  He felt that residents are not paying attention to the signs and wondered if anyone has received a citation for rolling through the sign.  

There was continued discussion on speed bumps.  

Judicial: Jim Simmons

  • ïRequest approval of the attached fee schedule changes.  Attachment 1, (Second Reading)

Motion made to approve second reading of fee schedule changes by Donna Yetzer and seconded by Robert Starks.  Motion passed 4-1.

There was some discussion on the fee schedule changes.  

Lakes and Parks Committee Report:  Dave Patterson

  • ïRequest a Motion approving the following information regarding a wording change for current Rule 7-7-3 being submitted by L&P.  (Second Reading)

           Register a Watercraft (Replacing Rule 7-7-3)  

“Only an HVL POA member may register his/her water craft.  Before a POA member registers a water craft for the first time for use on any HVL lake, they must attend a POA-sponsored Boat Safety Familiarization Course conducted by a current member of the HVL POA Boat Patrol.”

7-7-3. Only a POA Member May Register a Watercraft (Current Rule)

“Only an HVL POA member may register his/her water craft.”

Motion to approve the second reading for Current Rule change made by Tom Hamilton and seconded by Robert Starks.  Motion passed unanimously

  • ïRequest Approval of Marina Shelter Project.

Motion to approve the Marina Shelter Project made by Robert Starks and seconded by Tom Hamilton.  Motion passed unanimously.  

Dave Patterson explained the process of getting the Marina Shelter prepared and ready for approval.  The Pickle Ball Court went through the same process to prepare for the Pickle Ball Court as well.  Both projects went before the Architecture and Finance committee’s before Board of Director approval.    

Bill Blantz, Lot # 85, wanted to know more about the Marina Shelter. The shelter will be similar to Lake Melody Shelter.    He was concerned that it was in the flood zone.  Dave said it was above the flood zone.  

There was much discussion on the Marina Shelter.  

  • ïRequest Approval of Pickle ball Court.

Motion to approve the Pickle Ball Court made by Robert Starks and seconded by Donna Yetzer.  Motion passed 4-1

Lake Patrol Report:  Paul reported that this year’s Fourth of July was one of the easiest ones yet.  That was possibly helped by the fact that it fell in the middle of the week this year.  He educated and then cited a pan fisherman for too many fish (10 over the limit).  I mentioned my discussion with the Civic club chair and suggested that she and Paul and Bruce get their heads together and see if things can be improved over past years events, specifically with adults cursing and yelling at the lifeguards as they take down the swimming buoys 

Lake Statistics Report:  Gerry Young –Everything is well within normal ranges except that the dissolved oxygen was a bit better than normal, 5ppm or better to 22 feet.

Sluice Gate Bridge Project update – Concrete for the decking and ramp has been installed.  The ramp on the dam side will be extended approx. 12 ft.

Lifeguard Shelter – A phase two project will occur next spring to upgrade the existing building to more closely match the lines and styles of the rest of the HVL buildings.  Jill and Dave (Ryberg) volunteered to assist in this project

Fish limit Rule – There are several rules in different sections.  We need to get them all together and in synch.  After the fish study this fall we will be better able to assess the size and quantity limits.  Then signs will be updated.

Boat Safety Session Rule – Second Reading.

Marina layout – Peter is going to re-draw his starting proposal.  Bruce will email latest suggested version to the committee as soon as he has something.

Land Use Plan Task Force update – Final report will be done before the next annual meeting, but the final amenities survey should be done very shortly.  

Parking in the marina lot – A better parking layout needs to be established.  Vehicles without trailers should not be interspersed with vehicles that have trailers attached.  Space needs to be left at the far ends of the parking rows so that vehicles can make a loop instead of having to back up when they see they can’t get through. We might want to look into putting lines on the ramp to assist folks in lining up their trailers and allowing best use of the ramp, especially in busy times.  Reflective lines that can be seen after dark might be worth looking into as well.

Ken Horn, Lot # 2790, expressed concerns about the fireworks and parking.  As fireworks were going on people were still trying to find a place to park.  Ken feels the road should be closed before the fireworks begin.  They will work on making this safer next year.  

Tammy Garrison, Lot # 2986, asked about the smoking area by the beach.  They moved the smoking area with a picnic table that is in bad shape, there are also a lot of rocks that have to be walked on to get to the smoking area.  Bruce will speak to the Maintenance Crew about getting this cleaned up.  

Finance Committee Report:  Kyle Packer

  • ïRequest approval of May/June, 2018 Financial Statements.

Motion made to approve the May/June 2018 Financial Statements made by Robert Starks and seconded by Scott Giska.  Motion passed unanimously.  

Future Planning Committee Report:  Richard Meyer

LUP Task Force Activity – The LUP Task Force now has four Sub-groups working on finalizing the initial draft of HVL POA LUP available for review by fourth quarter this year.  The four Sub-groups are working on the final community survey, the final format and content of the LUP, the external HVL factors and the internal HVL factors.  At the June POA Board Meeting, the date for the final community survey was extended to August and that is on target.  The survey will be available in on-line and paper format.

Community Education – The FP Committee is starting a new project focusing on how to best provide educational information about the POA for HVL residents.  Different educational topics and delivery methods are being considered.

Community Master Plan Update – The FP Committee is asking all POA committees, staff members and the Board to start identifying any changes they would like to propose for the Community Master Plan.  An updated plan will be submitted to the Board for approval at the 2019 Annual Meeting.

POA Revenue Generation – It has also been suggested that the FP Committee could look into the possibilities for various new revenue-generating opportunities for the POA.  Several ideas were discussed including the possibility of creating a task force to work on this concept.

Pat Hawkins asked if there were any examples of the various new revenue-generating opportunities.  Tom Hamilton said they are looking at a long list projects such as the golf course.  There will be more discussion on this.
