The anti-feeding campaign for waterfowl has been a success. The Muscovey (non-native) ducks are being removed. This will permit our native waterfowl to return.
Our landscaping is looking better all the time. There are more holiday decorations.
The Jonathan's Landing cable system is still under review. Echostar's proposal to us is being studied. The JLPOA board expects to reach a decision very soon.
Tom Ferguson brought up a few questions his board discussed. The Lantern Bay board sent a letter to the JLPOA board, who are answering each item in the letter.
Earl Weeks reported that the propane price structure for 2003 will remain the same as for 2002. For community pools it's the supplier's cost plus $ .17/gallon. For individual pool owners it's cost plus $ .48/gallon. These are delivered prices.
The Jonathan's Landing Marina Club continues to present many problems for all our residents. Not the least of these are noisy, late parties and the way some members or guests of the club comport themselves as they leave and drive through our community. We expect to be able to control entrance to the Marina Club after the first of the year with the use of the bar code system now utilized for our residents. A committee consisting of Nils Kindwall, Bill Goram and Mort Siegel are looking into the legal and security aspects in our relations with the Marina Club.
We wish all a happy holiday season. Our next meeting is January 10, 2003 at 8:00 AM.
