A. TAYLOR LAKE COURT – LICENSE AGREEMENT
James Melledy reported that there is no new information to report regarding the Licensing Agreements.
James Melledy reviewed an email received from a member regarding the common property adjacent to the lake on Forest Drive. The park area has become over grown and the member requested information on maintenance of the area. James Melledy explained that he had spoken to the member and informed him that because of the extremely wet spring weather, the lawn maintenance service has not been able to cut the grass because the weight of the equipment could cause damage to the grass and/or get stuck in the overly wet grass/mud in the area. Smaller/lighter equipment has been requested for grass cutting until the area dries out and can support the heavier equipment.
Fred Aichele presented the Treasurer’s Report for 05/01/2019 – 05/31/2019. Nicki Sullivan moved and Chris Shifley seconded that the Treasurer’s Report be approved as submitted. Unanimously approved by Directors Mike Davenport, John Lohrmann, James Melledy, Chris Shifley, and Nicki Sullivan.

Fred Aichele reported that 4 WSP homes were sold/purchased in May 2019.

John Lohrmann requested the board solicit quotes on the cost to purchase/plant several new trees. Nicki Sullivan suggested contacting Tori Trauscht to get recommendations for plants and trees that do well in areas that have a lot of ground moisture. Suggestions on how to stabilize existing trees adjacent to a construction site was also requested.
The block 2 beach clean-up will be announced via email. The installation of new top-soil at block 2 beach is under consideration.

Additional work to be completed includes re-painting signs, re-painting the well house, and various small maintenance and beautification projects.
