Emergency Fund –
Homeowner’s Fund –
Combined Total for all Accounts - $10,324.97
Roads: 2013 Road Base Grant – The County says it is possible that we may be able to get some road base for flood damaged roads after the maintained roads have been repaired. There are no trucks or available road base at this time. At this it is up to the residents to maintain the roads along their section. The September flooding caused quite a bit of road damage. In order for improvements to be made it is imperative that residents contribute to the emergency/road funds!
FEMA recovery act: Because the county qualified for emergency aid due to the flooding, we can apply for access route funds in order to make much needed road repairs. Dave Gallaher will submit an application on behalf of the association within the next 10 days.
Information Kiosk: Fire Chief, Kelly Babeon, confirmed the parts for this project have been ordered. The board will request volunteers to assemble & install the kiosk at the firehouse once all of the parts are in.
Elections: All members who are current on dues are eligible to vote / serve on the GCCHLA Board of Directors. Mail in ballots received by 10/1/13 will be totaled along with the online results for votes cast during the 10/5/13 meeting. Results to be announced at the next meeting and officer elections held.
Annual Dues / Funding: Annual dues remain $50/yr. This is very inexpensive and goes to pay for the forest service access and special use permits (required by the forest service). These permits are what allows property owners access to their property, and allows us to plow and maintain the roads. Additionally, dues go to pay the annual association insurance which covers general road maintenance liability and officer liability. At this time only a small portion of land & home owners are paying the annual dues. The association is currently averaging collections of approximately $2,000.00 per year and minimal donations to the emergency/road funds. This level of funding is not adequate to pay basic expenses.
