Additional topics covered at the Board Meeting on December 12, 2023 include an introduction to Green Knight Security, a request for a new Greencrew Lawncare manager, executive Board meeting sessions, and political canvasing on the Green.
Ms. Giles introduced the Board and the community to Eddie Chaudry, the Senior Vice President of Green Knight Security, which took over security of the property the day after Thanksgiving, 11/24/23, at 8:00 a.m. Mr. Chaudry addressed questions from the Board and pledged to work closely with the community to address all concerns. (An interview with Mr. Chaudry can be found on the Village Green website very soon.)
SECURITY OFFICE REFRESH
The Board approved a Management resolution to spend $4,196 to refurbish the room used by the security vendor. The room’s deteriorating plaster walls, warped floors, and non-functioning blinds will be repaired or replaced.
GREEN CREW MANAGER
The Board reviewed a proposal brought forward by the Tree and Landscape Committee (TLC) to ask Green Crew to replace Nick Havai with a new manager. TLC has documented years of challenges, including uncompleted work orders and non-responsiveness to urgent projects. The Board approved 8-0.
Citing fatigue during prolonged meetings, the Board voted earlier this year to move Executive Sessions to an alternate night but did not lock in a schedule at that time. At this meeting, the Board decided to move Executive Sessions as needed and when the public meetings are expected to run long.
POLITICAL CANVASSING ON THE GREEN
Prompted by homeowner correspondence, Director Claire Knowlton moved to allow political candidates and their representatives to canvass door to door during campaign seasons. Ms. Knowlton agreed to draft a set of guidelines for potential canvassers including registration requirements, permitted hours, and windows when campaigning is allowed. The Board approved the motion 9-0.
