RECON MEETING (J.Bell) July 7, 2018 The meeting was called to order at 9:00 am by President Melissa Burroughs. A quorum was present: Mike & Andrea Shepard, Amy Zuppas, Guy & Melissa Flibotte, Ron Spitler, Jan & Carl Olson, Paula Lahar, Jay Walker, Marshall Malone, Harold Rouse, Susan & Jeﬀ Bell, and Megan Bell. The meeting was opened in prayer. The minutes of the 2017 Stockholder meeting was presented. There being no amendments, the minutes as presented were APPROVED. The treasurers report was presented and explained. There being no questions, the treasurers report as presented was APPROVED. Old Business 1. By-Laws. Attorney Megan Bell reviewed the work she has done to review the current RECON By-Laws. She explained the purpose of By-Laws, and that Restrictions do not belong in the By-Laws but should be a stand-alone document. All By-Laws and Restriction documents should be identiﬁed with a date so as to track revisions. After a spirited discussion it was decided that the By-Laws need to be reviewed and possibly amended in order to provide a ﬁrm legal foundation in the years to come. Jan Olson, Jeﬀ Bell, Ron Spitler, Amy Zuppas or Frank Decker and Melissa Burroughs will review the current By-Laws (dated August 31, 2010) and bring recommended revision for vote. New Business 1. Install a gate at the entrance of Long Street. Harold Rouse recommended that RECON install a gate at the entrance of Long Street that could be locked at night. Stockholders could be issued a fob to open and close the gate. The concern was raised due to a motorcycle that entered the RECON property late at night and drove throughout the community. Jan Olson added that recently a high powered pellet gun, placed on the railing of her home, has turned up missing. Those present agreed that a lockable gate was a good idea but asked that a keypad be used to open/close the July 7, 2018 Page of 1 3 J. Bell, Sec/Treas gate rather than a fob. Action on this recommendation will be taken up at the Board of Directors meeting. 2. Election of Oﬃcers. Ron Spitler commented that oﬃcers do not need to be Stockholders, but Directors of RECON do. The following were elected as oﬃcers, Class of 2020: Melissa Burroughs, President; Charles Nimitz, Vice-President; Jeﬀ Bell, Secretary/ Treasurer. 3. RECON Checking Account. There is interest in investigating the current bank used by RECON to a bank that allows for electronic billpay services for paying bills and receiving Annual Dues, viewing statements, and more. Melissa Burroughs volunteered to look into the current banks ability to oﬀer these services or the possibility of moving the RECON account to a national bank. 4. Removal of a tree leaning into the South East corner of the Pavillion. Guy Flibotte made those present of a tree leaning against the pavilion which, in high winds, moves the pavilion. Action on this recommendation will be taken up at the Board of Directors meeting. The meeting adjourned at 10:00 am. Respectfully Submitted, Jeﬀ Bell Secretary/Treasurer
