Jeff Edwards-Vice President

Harley Hollingsworth-Member at Large
The Board of Directors meeting was called to order at 8:00 pm by Pat Kelly.
Harley Hollingsworth made a motion for the approval of the May meeting minutes. Jeff Edwards seconded, motion approved.
Joyce Briggs presented the proposed 2017 Rivers Edge operating budget and provided a thorough review of the budget. She informed the board that there were several line items in the budget where an increase in the budgeted amount would be necessary, and she also included a line item for $2,400.00 which would provide additional support for Joyce as she continued to serve as Treasurer. These increases in the budget, along with the additional funds for treasurer support would require an increase in yearly member dues.
Jeff Edwards asked Joyce if she knew lf anyone who would be willing to help her with these duties and she said that Nancy Reynolds, owner and president of NHR Inc. would be assisting her with general bookkeeping responsibilities.
After additional discussion on the budget, a motion was made to approve the proposed budget by Harley Hollingsworth, seconded by Jeff Edwards and motion was approved. The proposed 2017budget will be presented at the Members meeting for further discussion and approval.
Pat Kelly discussed with the board the drainage ditch issue on Timber Court. No permanent fix is for the drainage issue, but will require some attention to ensure the road condition. Several bids have been taken for possible solutions for the drainage, and the board recommended that the members vote to spend $2,850.00 to repair and clean out the ditch. The recommendation will also include that the grass on the bank not be cut to see if that will also help with the drainage.
Pat discussed with the board that there was an issue with the sprinkler motor in the pond. Several estimates were taken to also address this maintenance issue. The board discussed the bids, and determined that it would be in the best interest of the park to go with Freeman Electric. Freeman did the original work on the system and would know what would be necessary to fix the issue.
No further business was discussed. Jeff Edwards made a motion to adjourn, and Harley Hollingsworth seconded. Meeting was adjourned at 9:15pm.
