Architectural Committee: Dave Deahl-Chair – 2 houses have started and a 3 third is planned for the spring. The 3 house is on lot 42 original plans had 2 car garage, it has been changed to 3 car. Lot 3 Gene & Cindy plan on moving in soon.

Open Forum: Concerns were brought up about the covenants not being followed in regards to recreational vehicles, work vehicles, boats, and boat trailers. Several people would like to see this followed. Dave D. said that it is also a city ordinance and residents could be fined. A reminder to neighbors that the speed limit is 25 mph and to keep dogs on a leash. A discussion of former Egly home (house next to access lot) residents would like the house to be brought into compliance with the covenants and would the bank do this?

It was brought up that a strange car was parking in the driveway of the former Egly house. There was also a Jeep driving through the neighborhood with 2 people looking into mailboxes. If you notice anything out of the ordinary to call Minooka Police at the non-emergency number 815-467-2151.

Landscape & Grounds Committee: Keith Erchinger-Chair –Access lot is not being mowed to everyone’s standards. It is being mowed at peak times of use. Landscape committee would like to increase their budget by $6,000 for trees for berm, trees to shield rest area, plantings at entrance island and to hire some to mow the access lot and other spaces.

Weed Control: Ski Club looking at hiring a new person to do weed control which would increase the costs.

Social Committee: Sue Cooper-Chair (absent Butch Moore spoke on her behalf) Sue would like to step down from this committee. Suggestions were made that Marty Gannon be made the chairperson of the committee.

A discussion about broken glass at the access lot particularly in the water area. The discussion continued about having a garbage can at the access lot. One suggestion was to have the can from the park moved to the access lot and the village empty it. Within the discussion it was brought up that if we have a garbage can at the beach it will bring animals and perhaps more glass in the area of the swimming. Request for a “No glass allowed” sign to be posted at the access lot. – Jackie Mass will look into having a sign made.

Election of directors: Tim Manning, Cyndi Campbell, Kerri Courtright & Lori Casey’s terms were expiring. Tim Manning choose to step down from the board and not seek re-election. The election was opened to the guests to see if anyone was willing to be part of the board.Doug Salvatori and Kim Gleason both said they were willing to be on the board.
