Snow plowing has been good. Some complaints from owners on side streets about timing.
Katia Solakas found some errors in revenue posting that were not picked up by auditors. Katia reviewed the failure of CM to post interest on delinquent accounts. She believes there are mis-postings between Association, Tax District, and Land Lease accounts. A review of the Tax District accounts for the period 7/1/2017 to 12/31/2021 is needed to determine correct interest postings on delinquent accounts. Christopher Rossetti will attempt to get obtain quotes from CPA firms to perform such a review.

Rossetti moves for authorization to engage Walsh Fence per their revised proposal with funds for same to be taken from Tax District reserves. Seconded by Charles Wall and approved unanimously.
Discussion of status of 7-8 Arrowhead Court and 1 Owl Court – the cable pedestal repairs are needed. The one between 7 and 8 Arrowhead is a present hazard to pedestrians as it is near the walking path.
Discussion of catch basin inspection and cleaning – engagement of contractors and solicitation of bids. Christopher Rossetti wants this done in spring, after spring clean-up is completed. No one recalls who Pond Place has used in the past for this service.
