Secretary’s Report: Minutes of the previous Board meeting were approved.
Treasurer’s Report: As of 6/8/2018 the total assets of ROIA were $ 25,821.63. Two lots still owe for the third quarter (Q3) of the previous financial year, and three lots owe for Q4. 11 lots owe for Q1 of the current financial year (2018/19), and 18 lots for Q2. Three lots have been assessed late fees.
The Treasurer’s Report was approved.
Weeding and Trimming – The entryway plantings need weeding and trimming, as do some edges of the Common Area. Rick will call B&B about this situation. Linda will talk to her tree trimmer about some of the Common Area trees.
Common Area Drain Blockage – The City of Warrenville did send out a crew to clear the storm sewer clog in the Common Area and has said it will send a bill to ROIA for $275 for this action. The Board is researching information on the storm sewer installation and maintenance. Currently these storm sewers handle storm water from River Oaks, as well as areas not in River Oaks. The Board will try to get copies of the plats that show storm sewer lines and utility easements. The Board would also like to discuss this issue with the mayor and our aldermen, and with Community Development representatives.
Lower Common Area – The Lower Common Area, behind Lots 39 and 40, was too soggy for the Board walk-through after the heavy rains. Board members will try again during a dryer period. It was suggested that planting a line of shrubs along the edge of this area next to the property lines of the adjacent lots might be a good idea to delineate the entryway to this area, like the plantings on the entrance area to the Upper Common Area.
Unleashed Dog Problems – A reminder will be sent to all homeowners in the next email newsletter that all dogs must be leashed. This note will include the phone number of the City department that picks up stray dogs. The note will also remind cat owners that they cannot let their cats run free either.
Garage Sale – The annual River Oaks garage sale will be held on Saturday, August 4th ***. It was suggested that we might want to hold the sale in the spring next year, possibly coordinating this with Summerlakes’ and Emerald Green’s garage sales.
Block Party – The annual River Oaks Block Party will be held on Saturday, September 15th, in the Upper Common Area.
Next Board meeting on August 21, 2018 at 7 PM at Becky Christiansen’s house.
Meeting adjourned at 8:20 p.m.
Becky Christiansen, Secretary
*** After the Board Meeting, the date of the garage sale was changed to Saturday, August 11, so that the date would not interfere with the City of Warrenville Summer Daze event scheduled for the August 4th.
