2013 Year In Review

2013 year in review2
2013 Year In Review
  • 12th Amendment – Updated Bylaws
    • Bylaw review noticed non-compliance to the Over-the-Air Reception Devices (“OTARD”) Federal regulation.
    • Bylaws stated that permission was required to install satellite dishes and such dishes must not exceed 18 inches in diameter
    • This statement contradicts the OTARD rule that, the Board may not make such restrictions on installation nor require permission if satellite dishes are one meter or less in diameter
    • 12th Amendment eliminated this requirement and aligned our neighborhood with regulations.
    • Question regarding general statement about compliance with state & federal regulations and this does exist in Article 16.

2013 year in review4
2013 Year In Review
  • Road Repair Evaluation and Plan Completed!
    • AMCA spearheaded effort to align the 5 associations to appropriately plan for road maintenance
    • Contracted Moore & Bruggink Engineering Consultants to analyze the current state of our neighborhood roads and prepare a comprehensive replacement plan
    • Evaluation completed in July 2013 and significant discussion has been had with all 5 associations to appropriately plan.
    • AMCA board is extremely pleased with the thoroughness in which M&B has completed this important work.
road commission update
Road Commission Update
  • 1st Draft of the Joint Road Maintenance & Replacement Agreement has been reviewed and agreed upon in principle by all 5 associations
    • Goal is to create a joint management group comprised of members of each association.
    • Scope of responsibilities include annual road repair, planned surface coating and crack sealing and scheduled surface replacement.
    • Each association contributes equally to the budget based on percentage of homes in each association. AMCA currently has 66.23% (151/228 homes).
    • AMCA continued participation is contingent on this agreement being signed and filed.

  • Expected Cash Flow
road commission update6
Road Commission Update
  • Majority of the discussion at the meeting was on this topic.
  • Question – can we petition the township to complete a tax assessment to have the funds come through the township to fund the road replacement
    • No – we have talked with the township in the past and they will not do this based on the 5 associations and no incentive for township.
  • Concern about timing of road replacement – confirmed that all plans will be scheduled to be completed during the summertime when school is not in session for safety concerns.
  • Question was raised about the last section of road to be replaced and the timeframe. Need to review intersections for complete replacement vs. current plan of mil and fill.

snow plowing discussion
Snow Plowing Discussion
  • A concern has been raised from our homeowners regarding the frequency of the plowing and salting of the intersections and streets.
  • Current process calls for automatic plowing for snowfalls greater than 1 ½ “ and salt application at the discretion of the board
  • For an approximate $60 increase in annual dues, we can have a contract with Sneller’s for regular ice melt application. They monitor the status of the roads and call for salt and this includes all roads, not just intersections.
  • VOTE to increase annual dues from $240/hh to $300/hh starting in 2015 for increased ice melt application.
  • Room split ~50/50. 2014 board will continue to keep this option open. ACTION – receive actual quotes from Sneller’s and other companies to determine annual cost impact to homeowners.
