3.1. June 16, 2014
4. Report of
4.1. Treasurer’s Report – Bill read the
treasurers report. We have
plenty of money and none to spend.
4.1.1.Delinquency Update: 11 delinquencies –
one of which should be current by next meeting.
4.1.2. “City of Tarpon Springs” (water bill)
$709.57 Check Number 248 6/26/14.
Sue said the sprinklers had been repaired and that was the price of working
sprinklers. NOT a good
answer. The past year our
water bills have ranged from a LOW of $40.38 January 2014 to a HIGH of $432.34 August
2013. If the $700
range is the “new and improved” water bill – HOA Dues for 2015 WILL go up.
Find Out HOW is the water bill calculated
Talk with Darryl about cutting back on the hours of watering
ARE we using well water where we are SUPPOSED to be using well water – or is it on the City
Water? Make sure well is
being used where well is supposed to be being used.
220.127.116.11.3.1. Blackrush Pond area ~should~ be the only
place on city water? Can a
well be installed here? Electricity was the issue …?

violation letters and fining committee notifications (fines HAVE been levied - ) … get with Attorney.
5.4. Other items as may be introduced by
a Committee Member
5.4.1.US 19 Delineators – DOT
issue. The city is doing
what they can, but there are budget constraints – and the delineators get plowed down almost as soon as they are
put back up.
DOT will continue to maintain the ones that curve into the community, but not the straight-away
along US 19 (drivers use our TURN-ONLY lane to try and pass traffic ON US 19)

weeks before … Sue to see what the City can do to clean it up.

Because the ground level was RAISED on the West side of the wall (Northern Tool) SEVEN courses
