Sheriff's Campaign

  • Jim started off the meeting with discussion concerning his running for Clear Creek County Sheriff.  Nobody at the meeting had any issue (technical or moral) with Jim pursuing this and remaining on the board as president.

Beetle Kill

  • Dave Gallaher and Rusty Stewart are looking into procurring a grant to obtain a portable saw mill that may be used for beetle kill trees.
  • Homeowners should keep track of activites and hours spent on fire mitigation in case it becomes possible to receive retroactive grant reimbursement.
  • Projections indicate that we may lose as much as 90% of our lodgepole pines over the next 5 years.
  • It was noted that the fire hazard from beetle killed trees is not so immediate as later on when the dead trees fall and provide pathways for fires.
Dues and Liens

There was a great deal of discussion around our HOA's issues with getting home and landowners in our area to pay at least the minimum dues we need to maintain our Forest Service access permit and insurance.
  • Jim has been researching both past GCCHLA HOA actions and case law and determined the following
    • The HOA board from the earliest days of incorporation had, in fact, voted that liens could be imposed and in addtion, had even voted in stiff penalties for non-compliance.
    • Case law from locations as close as Evergreen fully supports the right of an HOA to impose dues and file liens.
  • Nobody on the board really wants to be that kind of board that puts liens on property but many feel that we've reached a point where that may be the only way to proceed if we are to keep up with our obligations.
  • The following motion was made:
    "The Homeowner's Association President [Jim Vogt] shall inform in writing, all property owners that homeowner's association dues are mandatory in the amount of $50 per year.  The written notice shall provide 6 months for those who have not paid to do so.  After that time, a lein shall be placed on the property.  The written notice shall include an explanation of the use for the dues.  Real Estate and Title Company offices in the area shall also be informed that dues are mandatory"
The motion was approved
Ayes: Kelly & Otto VanGeet, Craig Wandrey, Matt & Missy Taylor, Judy Gallaher, Sergio Panelo
Nays: Curtis & Tina DePoyster, John Bottomley, Heather & Darrell Huntoon
  • A second motion was made to raise the dues from $50 to $150 to include road maintainence.
    The motion was defeated:  All board members in attendance opposed.
Annual Picnic and Neighborhood Cleanup
  • A motion was made to hold the annual neighborhood cleanup (free trash day) and picnic on June 19th.
    The motion was approved by all in attendance.
    More information will follow.
