The Board then reviewed the April 2020 Balance Sheet and Income and Expense Report. Mr. Bouras stated the Association is in good and stable financial condition.
Mr. Bouras informed the board that there is a $3000 security deposit income that was generated through the audit. This income is from the unclaimed rental common area damage deposits that were paid to the association in the past. Due to properties being sold and landlords or tenants moved away, it is impossible to refund these deposits.
Mrs. Esola made a motion to transfer $3000 rental security deposits income to the Capital Reserve account. Mr. McGuinn seconded this motion and it was unanimously approved by the board.
