❖ News items from Metro Police Representative
❖ Old Business: Hampton Park was not approved for “traffic calming” systems from Metro. Jo and Tracy decided not to send a letter to the HP homeowners regarding their property because we would be deciding about Associa.
❖ New Business: Jo had provided us with the literature from Associa Management. Jo and Jenny had investigated hiringan accountant/CPA to manage the HOA financials. They talked to Gunter and Associates Financial Management which was too expensive. Associa would be able to help with financials as well as many other services. In addition, Associa would provide a template for a website, a list of vetted vendors, and an app for the homeowners. Financially, the HOA would eliminate the Quick Books service we are using, and the HOA insurance would decrease. The monthly charge would start at
$550/month and drop to $450/month after the initial setup. We would also pay an additional $200/month for inspection visits to the neighborhood to look for maintenance issues. The HP by-laws allow for the HP Board to contract an outside agency. The HOA can afford this service with the homeowner dues and transfer fees. The process will take small steps to create the environment the homeowners prefer. With Associa handling the heavy lifting, the HOA Board will be able to provide oversight and return to “neighborhood” events, i.e. Yard of the Month, Halloween and Christmas decoration winners, yard sales, welcoming new neighbors,etc.
A motion to accept Associa HOA Management was made by Susan Lyle and seconded by Jo Searfoss. The motion was passed unanimously.
A motion was made by Jo Searfoss to increase the 2023 dues by 10% and seconded by Tracy. The motion was passed unanimously.
❖ Next Meeting TBD
❖ Open Discussion
