A copy of the updated budget was given to all in attendance. Mr. Warner Johnson reviewed each line item explaining expenses throughout the previous year. The monthly fee is being reduced slightly to $260 per month for Terrace Homes, $179 per month for Terrace homes without insurance, and $145 per month for the courtyard homes.
Report from Management:
Bid requests for the landscaping contract were sent to eleven contractors in the Tuscaloosa/Birmingham area. Upon review, the Board elected to retain the services of Turfscape, LLC. Trees in the common area have matured greatly and are scheduled to be trimmed. Having a higher canopy will help sunlight reach the grass and shrubbery beneath. ST Bunn is still owed approximately $34,000.00 for paving. Once a few minor checklist items are completed, the invoice will be paid. There have been several issues with repairs made to the entry gate. The gates have been repaired and are in good working order. If you should need to exit the gate if the power is down, simply release the red lever under the box and push the gate. The gate is greased and opens with ease.
