There has been no response from the lender/bank to date. The Board agreed if the attorney does not receive a response from the mortgage holder prior to the May Board Meeting the Board will vote to begin association foreclosure on this property.
The Board then reviewed the March 2016 Balance Sheet and Income and Expense Reports. Mr. Valyo stated the Association is in good and stable financial condition.
Mr. Valyo informed the Board that the CPA recommended an audit of the Rental Security Deposit account. The Board Members approved auditing this account and transferring funds to the Operating Account for deposits that have not been claimed by tenants or homeowners who have moved out of Ashley Park.

The Board Members discussed this matter.

Mr. Maida seconded this motion and it was unanimously approved by the Board.
TENNIS COURT RESURFACING – COMPLETE – Mr. Valyo informed the Board that the tennis court resurfacing has been completed. The Board Members agreed the resurfacing was done well and the courts look good. Management was instructed to release the final payment to Pro Courts - the company that resurfaced the tennis courts.
Mr. Valyo informed Board Members that over the years the drainage from the tennis courts has eroded the soil under the west and part of the south sides of the courts and should be filled in with rocks or dirt.
Mrs. Esola made a motion to install gravel/rocks on the west side and some areas on the south side of the tennis court to stabilize the edge of the asphalt. Mr. Hiltunen seconded this motion and it was unanimously approved by the Board.
