Thirty people attended the November Board Meeting, held early in advance of the Thanksgiving holiday. The meeting was unusually brief.
The Board of Directors discussed garage inspection violations with regard to the advanced notice residents receive and the month's financials.
GARAGE INSPECTION VIOLATIONS AND THEIR CIRCUMVENTION
by longtime Court Council chair Nat Hutton to remove the two-week notice
given residents in advance of garage inspections. The rationale was that advance notices allow residents to make their garages compliant with property guidelines, by removing items stored in garages, only to return those items the moment the inspection is complete.
Hutton contended that the use of garages for storage is “out of control” and residents are being given an opportunity to clear out their garages ahead of inspections, avoiding potential violations, when the HANDBOOK states that “Garages shall be used for the parking of one vehicle and may not be used solely for storage purposes.”
Directors wanted to know the origin of this two-week period. Operations Manager Sherri Giles stated that the HANDBOOK was revised in 2015 to ensure that a notice be placed on garage doors at least fourteen days prior to inspection. The board decided the existing fourteen day rule should remain in force.
