Huntington Homeowners’ Association Quarterly Meeting Minutes February 5, 2024

The board of directors held a regular quarterly meeting by the pool on Monday, February 5th, at 8pm.

Other Members Present: Jackie Collom (10), Hillary Cone (24)

The meeting was called to order at 8:04pm by President JA Booker (23). Election of Board Officers:

The board selected Tim Baker as Treasurer.

The board selected J A Booker as President.

The board did not select a Secretary and will leave the position vacant for the time being. The board will alternate the responsibility of recording minutes to a different board member each meeting. Tim will manage the contact list.

New Business:

Water Bill:

As discussed during the annual meeting, January’s water bill reflects a tripling of usage from November’s reading. The board will be following up on identifying the source of this increase. If unable to pinpoint the source of the extra water usage there may need to be some further exploration, like hiring a plumber, to determine where it's happening. Tim has been monitoring the meter daily since receiving the bill, around 4pm, in an attempt to narrow down the source of the problem. Huntington's single water meter shows how quickly water is flowing and there are

times of the day when it is not flowing at all indicating that there is not a continuous leak. Gabrielle has volunteered to collect meter data in the mornings to add to Tim’s afternoon data.

Dead Tree at Pool:

The dead tree is on the neighbor’s property. The board has previously reached out to the owner of the property and they are not interested in taking action. JA consulted the arborist when they were here to see to our other trimming. The arborist stated it needs to come down. JA has put in a request with the city to condemn the tree via their online portal See. Click. Fix. but is having difficulty getting a response from them. Pam volunteered to follow up and see if we can get some action taken. If the tree is condemned by the city, they may compel the property owner to act.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:23 pm.
