FAHA Board Meeting April 15, 2018

The meeting was called to order by Jeff Miller at 7:14.

Doug Matuska brought the two new windsocks that he had ordered for Rikki at Crest Airpark, displaying the new airport name. As the cost for the windsocks is being paid for by Board members, and not from FAHA dues, board members can reimburse Doug directly, at a suggested amount of $25 each. Doug plans to rent a “cherry picker” from Home Depot to install the windsocks.

Our guests from the last meeting, Neil and Marty Bryant, were encouraged by conversations during the January meeting. Jeff Miller spoke to their new neighbors, Keith and Susan, who had similar concerns about airport access. They told Jeff that they are likely to join the community, which is encouraging.

Kudos to Andy Karmy and John Tomlinson for their work on the website. A conversation with a realtor on the Lunde residence elicited comments of “brilliant”, “clean”, and “professional”.

Janet Gundlach—Treasurer’s Report. As requested by John Tomlinson, Janet produced a report listing lot owners, lot description, and ….

Janet has sent out reminders to owners who have yet to send in their 2018 FAHA HOA dues (about 18).

Janet has also been watching for homeowners who may not have paid the Airpark dues. At least one homeowner was reported as unpaid by the Airpark, but had a cancelled check to prove otherwise.

For March: $1260 in income, no expense, leaving a balance of $36,292.40.

A $2984.83 billing for Ledger Square services will be paid in April.

Motion

  • Proposed by:      John Tomlinson
  • Seconded by:     Andy Karmy
  • Motion made:    To accept the Treasurer’s report
  • Approved:           Yes

Janet read a “History of Crest”, which she helped to write a couple decades ago. Andy Karmy will try to include it on the FAHA website.

John Tomlinson, Andy Karmy, and Jeff Miller met with attorneys from Ledger Square on March 23, 2018. One of the objectives of our board members was to familiarize the law group with who we are (homeowners) and what we want to do (own and operate the airport). A second objective was to have them provide a rough estimate of the cost. Our group was pleased that they came with examples of other airports and associations that showed they had knowledge of our situation. They also estimated around 40 hours of work, which eased John Tomlinson’s mind as something we could afford. They also suggested that they would like to offer a set bid as opposed to hourly billing. The group discussed voluntary vs. mandatory participation. This is not a traditional HOA; the LLC owns it, then the homeowners tie into it. Shasta (full-partner) has the structural mind and Jason listens to her opinion. John sent out a visual as to the anticipated structure.

John Tomlinson brought up the upcoming fly-in that Logan Shepherd of Normandy Aircraft is planning to host on June 2, 2018. John wondered if we should offer homeowner assistance: wheel BBQs, provide garbage cans, parking? According to the website/facebook page, 39 plan to attend and 216 are interested. This could impact FAHA residents, so an email will be sent out to homeowners to give them a heads-up.

Logan Shepherd, who rents the hangar owned by Norm Grier at the south end of the airport, worked on the rotating beacon. He has reported that he has had trouble with one homeowner. The board discussed the need to have the walking path markers more visible…perhaps with concrete poured around the monument.
