September 8, 2020 Board Meeting Minutes

The meeting was brought to order at 7:16 by Jeff Miller, via  Zoom, hosted by Andy Karmy.

Motion

  • Proposed by:     Mark Owens
  • Seconded by:     John Tomlinson
  • Motion made:   To accept the minutes of June 15, 2020.
  • Approved:          Yes, unanimous

Treasurers Report:  Janet reported that she is still waiting on a couple homeowner dues. No other activity.

FAHA Happenings:  Several homes have recently been sold:  Bartlett’s (to a couple of Alaska Airline pilots), Havasreti’s (to an East coast pilot family), and Fisher’s. All are aviation families.

Jeff shared an email from John Sheldon expressing concerns regarding an angry radio diatribe in the traffic pattern at Norman Grier Field. It is unknown whether the transmission came from a homeowner or transient pilot, but it was aimed at a helicopter doing training at Crest.  All of the board agreed that the behavior was rude and inappropriate as this is a “public use airport” that is open to helicopters as well as fixed wing aircraft.

The main agenda tonight is to discuss the annual Picnic and General Membership meeting , wihich normally occurs the end of September or first of October.  Because of Covid, our normal picnic and meeting is not possible.  At issue is voting for Board members.  One suggestion was to use Zoom for the general membership meeting, however, it was pointed out that getting 100+ members would be difficult when it was hard enough to get the nine Board members tuned in.  Another suggestion was to have Zoom on a webcast, not interactive, with only a few screens active.

Motion

  • Proposed by:     Keith Hendrickson
  • Seconded by:     John Tomlinson
  • Motion made:   To use Survey Monkey to conduct the vote for the 5 board members.
  • Approved:          Yes

The downside to not having the picnic is the inability to introduce new homeowners to our community.  Karen Wallace suggested that a Community Facebook Page might be a viable substitute.  John replied that not all folks like to use Facebook.  Another avenue could be “Next Door Crest”.

Board Member Elections:  Up for election in the “even year” are:  Mike Werner, Robbi Broussard, Rex MacLean, Janet Gundlach, and Jeff Miller.  Although four board members have consented to continue, Robbi has asked to step down this year.  When asked if she would be willing, Jo Wiggum has agreed to run for a position on the Board.  Jeff and Janet will work on a Newsletter/Email to inform homeowners of Board nomination bios, election process for this year, and any other pertinent information.

Documents Committee:  The Attorney had emphasized the need to create a document of risks, which the document committee has already begun drafting.  They hope to have a Participation Memorandum ready within a few weeks.

Motion

  • Proposed by:     John Tomlinson
  • Seconded by:     Keith Hendrickson
  • Motion made:   To adjourn at 8:25
  • Approved:          Yes

Respectfully submitted,

Robbi Broussard
