Alarm Permit Update Gelfands office has been in touch with the Palm Beach Sheriffs Department, in regard to their requiring the registration of the security alarms within JL. Gelfands office has requested a printout from the Sheriffs Department that will show the number of times they have responded to a false alarm within JL. Bob Shea will provide information regarding the number of alarms JL Security responds to, with the intention of proving that the Sheriffs Department is called (by JL Security) only in times of suspected intrusions.
Indiantown Light The DOT has been apprised of the back up of traffic at
the light on Indiantown Road when the bridge goes up and traffic is halted. As they will not consider a turn lane into JL (due to easements and available area), they have been asked to investigate the great potential for an accident caused by this light and the back-up it creates at the western entry into the Shoppes at Jonathans Landing parking lot.
South Rec Park Benches Two park benches are slated for installation at the South Rec area near the playground equipment. One will be in the sun and one in the shade overlooking the water. Several styles and types of materials at varying prices are available and will be presented at the meeting.

NEW BUSINESS - Mort Siegel reported that within the Jonathans Landing Declaration of Covenant and Restrictions there exists Amendment #14, entitled Rules, Regulations and Supervision, Article VIII. In that Amendment, paragraph (e), section (6) it states:
Any vessel owner keeping a vessel docked at a private residential dock in Jonathans Landing shall provide proof of ownership and a certificate of insurance, in the minimum amount of $500,000.00 bodily injury/property damage, to the board of directors of his neighborhood association annually.
In the interests of practicality, it is suggested that the above noted paragraph be revised to read as follows:
Any vessel owner keeping a vessel docked at a private residential dock in Jonathans Landing shall provide proof of ownership and proof of insurance on said vessel, in the minimum amount of $500,000.00 bodily injury/property damage, to the Board of Directors of the JLPOA in the form of a signed communication certifying that such ownership and insurance is in effect and will be continued, so long as the vessel is at the owners dock.
This proposal was accepted and residents will be informed officially by the POA.
NEXT MEETING - Will be Friday, February 9, 2001 at 8:00 AM in the Nickaleer Lounge of the Golf Club.
Respectfully submitted C. H. Woolard
