Presidents Council Meeting - 3/10/00
- Opening Remarks -
Chairman Bob Johnson opened the meeting at 8:30 AM.
The Feb. 11, 2000 minutes were approved.
- Secretary/Treasurer's Report -
Gordon Cook reported that the villages not represented were
Bay Head, Harbour and Southporte.
There is $2,981 in our account plus $200 in undeposited checks
from the villages. To date all but 2 villages, Bay Head and Harbour,
have paid the $100 assessment passed in December.
- Central Gate & Bar Code Entry System -
Bill Howe reported the POA is studying, in stages, the possibility of
closing the central gate. First a study involving the County will
determine if we're allowed to close the gate based on its usage.
If so, the board will further study this issue.
The bar code entry system will start with installation at the
North Gate. The gate will be closed for 2 weeks of construction in May.
The gate will be operable initially with either the present
"clicker" or with the bar code system. That system involves having a
JL bar code sticker on the inside of your windshield.
Once the North Gate is finished, construction will proceed to the
South Gate and then the Central Gate. Old Trail will be done next
- Ron Ryan Withdraws From POA Election -
Bill Howe reported that Ron Ryan learned he is not eligible
to be a director under the current POA bylaws (technically he's not an
owner, the house is in Mig's name). Ron asked to have his name withdrawn
as a nominee. The POA will look into changing its bylaws.
- Villages Have Same Bylaws Problem -
Most JL villages have the same overly restrictive eligibility requirements
in their bylaws. Because of trusts or a single name on the deed, many
residents (including current board members and officers) are
technically ineligible to be on their village board. Many presidents
indicated they will be looking into changing their bylaws.
- Bylaw Recommendations On Next PC Agenda -
After today's meeting, the PC Officers decided it made sense for the
Presidents to work together to find a common solution to this bylaws problem.
This item will be on the agenda for the April meeting and each President
is requested to research the problem (with Counsel if possible) and be
prepared to offer suggestions for discussion. The POA will also report
on developments on this issue.
- Design Control Board -
Glenn Fetter encouraged the presidents to educate their residents about
the DCB's function at the village annual meetings.
- Security Report -
Bob Shea provided the Security Status Report for February.
A copy is attached to the mailed copy of these minutes.
- Contractors List -
Bill Howe will bring the list of contractors compiled
from the various village recommendations to the next meeting.
- New Residents Folders -
Bill Howe is working on a new version and expects to complete it by
the April meeting. Bob Shea has some covers for the old version, but the
associated contents are missing.
- JL Cares - Blood Mobile -
The recent blood drive had 29 donors, a good start.
Bob Kiskaddon is going to have the blood mobile in JL again on
April 17, June 12, August 7, and October 30.
- JL Cares - Fruit Pickup -
The surplus fruit pickup was a big success. Charlie Walsh had fruit
in his trunk and back seat - hardly had room for Maureen in the car!
The pantry was grateful to have it. There will be another drive
- Nominating Committee -
Bob Johnson announced that the Presidents Council Nominating Committee
consists of Milt Schottland - Chairman, Peter Oram and Bard
McLean. They will be reporting their nominees at the April meeting.
- Summer Contacts -
Bob Johnson asked all Presidents who will not be here this summer to
provide an alternate contact for their village.
- Next Meeting -
Our next meeting will be Friday, Apr. 14, 2000 at 8:30 AM in the
Nickaleer Lounge of the Golf Club.
- Respectfully submitted - Gordon Cook
