Welcome letter.

HELLO WILDCAT COVE HOA MEMBERS!

The Board would like to thank everyone that came to the Annual Meeting on August 16th.  It was great to see everyone and meet some of our new neighbors.  We are looking forward to a great year.

We want to let everyone know what was discussed.

We had HMC Paving patch the roads that needed attention and we will be working with them in the future to get the remainder of the roads done as funds become available.

We changed the board term of office from one year to two years to allow the board to be more efficient on providing for the needs of the community.  A new board was elected.  Six of the seven board members were re-elected (one member had resigned) and one new member was added.  The incoming board then appointed the officers.

Enclosed you will find a list of the board members, their positions and contact information.  There is also a copy of the financial report and a copy of the budget for the upcoming year that was approved at the Annual Meeting.

We are looking forward to an exciting new year and continuing to make this community a great place to live.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact a board member and we will help any way we can.

Sincerely,

The Wildcat Cove HOA board of Directors

Annual Meeting Minutes

Wildcat cove Homeowners Association

Annual Meeting – August 16, 2018

Carol Coone made a motion to call this meeting to order at 7:04 pm and Laura Miller seconded.

Mike Yow had stepped down as President back in June.  Carol Coone and Laura Miller were co-presidents.  Mike stepped down to a director due to getting a new job with exciting new opportunities.  The members of the board wish him well on his new endeavors.

ATTENDANCE:  The following members of the community were at tonight’s meeting.

Leslie & Jean Farmer, Maryellen & Coley Epperson, Laura Miller, Carol Coone, Gordy & Dee Roberts, Joe & Marta Conway, Scott & Eva Hill, Jean Woods, Rich Feldpausch, Jacque Viens, Phil & Alisha Thomas, Jerry & Nancy Cool, Anita Puerto and Bob , Dawn and Rob Sawyer.

Robert told everyone to help themselves to refreshments.  Cupcakes made by Jean and cookie made by Joe.

Laura Miller welcomed everyone to the annual meeting and we are excited to see a lot of new faces.  Everyone went around the room and introduced themselves and told a little bit about themselves.  Laura also thanked the directors and volunteers for helping around the community.  We also had a good year and had a few projects completed this year.  We were able to get some of the roads paved by HMC Paving.  They patched a few of the common areas that needed immediate attention.  We were lucky this year with not much problems with the wells except for well #1 which is going to need some work done on it this upcoming year.

TREASURER REPORT:  Carol Coone passed out copies of the financial statement, breakdown of financial statement and copy of the proposed budget for 2018-19.  Carol asked everyone to look over these and if any questions to please ask.  Robert Sawyer made a motion to accept the financial report and the proposed budget and Laura Miller seconded and everyone at the meeting was in favor.

Carol also went over and explained the attorney fees for getting judgements on members that owed past dues.  We had one that had passed away and the other just flat out refuses to pay.  On the one that refuses to pay we went to court on August 9th and won the judgement plus attorney fees.

Carol also discussed the money spent on wells and paving.  We only had spent $668.10 on wells this year.  We were very lucky.  The only well that needs any work done is well #1 and it is going to need a iron filter and hopefully that’s all to get it back in full working order.  The roads we spent $13,738.07 and got some of the common areas done that needed immediate attention.  Roads were supposed to have work done on them in the past but were not done for several years.  To do all the roads and repairs in the subdivision it would cost approximately $50,000.  Hopefully we can get them do a little bit each year till all the roads are redone.  According to the man at HMC Paving most roads are good for about 20 years and the roads here are at about 17 years.

SECREATRY REPORT:  Jean Farmer gave out copies of the minutes from the last annual meeting.  She asked everyone to look over them and if any questions to please ask.  All members present at the meeting accepted and approved last year’s minutes as written.

OLD BUSINESS:

There have been some complaints about barking dogs at all hours.  Please be considerate of your neighbors.  There should be no dogs living outdoors on a full-time basis.  If you have a problem with a neighbor’s dog, please speak to your neighbor to try and resolve the problem and if that doesn’t work please contact the board.  According to the CCRs only 2 pets are allowed per lot and that the homeowner always has to be in full control of them.

Snow Plow – we have one that is owned by the HOA and we are not able to use it anymore.  We are looking to sell this and if anyone that knows who might be interested please let a board member know.  We will also be taking new pictures and planning on advertising it is for sale.

Salt – we have approximately 50 bags left for use for the upcoming season.  We will be posting the Snow Removal Policy on the bulletin board soon that tells how the roads are spoke to our attorney Mr. Pavey taken care of if it snows.

  1. Viens brought up a concern about damage to her driveway and Robert Sawyer, President, is going to look into the matter and report back to the board.

NEW BUSINESS:

Maintenance on sides of roads – We spoke to the attorney and he says that the HOA is only responsible for the roads and the homeowners are responsible for maintaining the sides of the roads that connect to their lots.  We will be sending a letter out to all homeowners about keeping lots and sides of the roads clean.  If all the homeowners would take care of their properties and the road near their property our subdivision would be very nice.

Trash – we have been noticing that there is litter (bags, cups, etc.) along the sides of our roads that seems to be getting worse.  Please remember to not throw out your trash and if you see anyone littering please let the board know.

Speeding – We have been having a lot of complaints about cars speeding in the subdivision especially on Safari.  If we can’t control the speeding issue, then the board will be forced to put up speed bumps.  No one wants this done so please slow down and if you see someone speeding please tell them to slow down or let a board member know.

Board Term – Jean suggested instead of the board being reelected every year that they are on the board for 2 years.  Robert Sawyer said that would be a good idea and that each year we only elect ½ of the board that way the 2-year term overlaps.  Robert made a motion to accept this change to the term and Carol Coone seconded and everyone that was present at the meeting was in favor also.

Board Elections – Robert Sawyer asked if there were any nominations from the floor to add to the ballot for election and there were none.  Robert Sawyer stated that there were 7 people on the ballot for this year’s election and since there were 7 positions available to be filled then if it was acceptable from all the members present that the 7 people listed be approved for the board for the upcoming year.  Also, on the ballot was the acceptance of the updated by-laws as presented. Robert Sawyer made a motion to accept the 7 people listed on the ballot as the new board for 2018-2019 and the acceptance of the By-laws as updated and Jerry cool seconded.  All members present at the meeting were in favor.  The new board members are Carol Coone, Robert Sawyer, Laura Miller, Jean Farmer, Joe Conway, Josh Dietz and Eva Scott.  All the new members will have a brief meeting after the annual meeting is adjourned to determine positions on the board.

Carol Coone made the motion to adjourn the annual meeting and Laura Miller seconded.

Brief meeting after the annual meeting was held by the new board members to determine positions on the board.

WILDCAT COVE HOA BOARD MEETING

JULY 24, 2018

Meeting called to order at 4:19 pm by Jean Farmer, Secretary.

ATTENDANCE:  Joe Conway, Laura Miller, Carol Coone, Robert Sawyer, Jean Farmer and Josh Dietz.

SECRETARY REPORT:  Jean handed out a copy of the minutes from the last meeting.  Everyone reviewed and there were no objections.  Laura Miller made the motion to accept the minutes and Josh Dietz seconded.

FINANCIAL REPORT:  Carol handed out a copy of report to review and there were no objections.  Robert Sawyer made the motion to accept the report and Laura Miller seconded.  Carol signed up for auto-pay for our Duke bills and this will go straight thru the bank every month.   We should be getting into the new year $4300.

OLD BUSINESS:

Mike still has the snow plow and had no luck in selling it and took it off Craig’s List.  He would like for it to be picked up from his house.  Will get Leslie and Rob to go up and get the plow.  Once we have it we can take pictures and get a description written up and try to re=list it for sale.

Attorney – Carol and Bob went to see Mr. Pavey.  Easement on the roads is 45 feet.  What is the HOA responsible for on roads?  Per Mr. Pavey we are not really  responsible for ditches and sides of the roads.  22 ½ feet on either side of the road is for HOA and Community use.  Need to make an announcement on road maintenance that homeowners should be responsible for their property lines.  Send out a letter to membership and mention at annual meeting that you need to maintain your lot and around it.  If you are not able to do it themselves or hire someone then the HOA can hire someone to do it and send the lot owner a bill.  This is legal per the attorney.  Recourse on the homeonwner if do not go by the CC&Rs can be a fine or take to small claims court.

Roads/Lots – Need to send out a general letter about taking care of lot and sides of the roads.  State policy of cleaning lots and sides of roads,  Bob and Carol will work on the letter.  Bob spoke to the people that owns lot #14  and told him that we would not keep up the road til either he builds or sells the lot.  They wanted to know if we could find someone to make a road from Turtle Creek to lot #14.  We would have to look into someone that contracts.

XXXXXX – Hearing is set for 8/6/2018.  There is an extension.  Crider replied to our letter and asked for another extension and court gave him the extension.  Mr Pavey is going to put on the docket and either Crider or his lawyer will have to be present or they will lose on default.

XXXXXX – All letters are coming back as no such person.  Try using a Private Investigator – Skip Trace to locate $50 flat fee.

Liens – these are good for 3 years before they expire.  We have a few that need to be renewed.

NEW BUSINESS:

Dues – charge 8% on late dues.  On dues after August 1st are past due and will assess 8% interest per year.  Give till December 31st  to be paid or make payment arrangements and if this is not done then assess the interest at that point.

XXXXXX – Made a complaint that the street signs are not visible.  She had to call an ambulance one evening and EMS was unable to locate her house due to brush blocking the signs.  Need to send her a letter that we checked on the signs and that they were ok and not overgrown.  Her post with her house number was not very easy to read due to bushes and flowers covering them.  We are sorry for any inconvenience that it caused her.

Need to move the Wildcat Cove sign back to the original site.  We also have other street signs that need to be moved to make it a little easier to get around.

Speeding – We had a complaint from XXXXXX about speeding on Safari.  We may need to put up speed bumps.  Need to discuss this at the annual meeting that we may have to put up speed bumps.  If you see someone speeding please let us know.  Need to do a letter about speeding in the subdivision.  Joe and Josh to work on prices for speed bumps.

Snow Plowing – Bob says we need to start thinking about snow removal for this winter.  We need to talk to Joe Corbin and see if he will do this for winter.  Also need to check on other options.

Salt & Salt softener – was still being stores at Mr. XXXXXX. Les and Rob removed from the and put at Bob’s house on pallets until Joe can get salt boxes built. Les and rob took the softner and spread it in the ditches along Safari to help deter weeds and this will not harm the animals.

Carol went to the Clerk of the Court and XXXXXX still owes $400.  We stopped getting checks from the court.  Will need to check with Attorney what we need to do .  Owes $422.68/$1122.

General Meeting – right now 6 people on the ballot .  Bob will talk to Scott Hill’s wife and see if she would like to be on the board.  Need to make a sign for meeting.  Have an agenda.  Need voters list, get with Carol to see who is current on their dues.  Shall let people vote as long  as 2017-2018 dues are current can vote in the general meeting.  All agreed to allow this to take place.  Carol says we need rules of meeting, copy of minutes from last years general meeting, sign in sheet.  Plan on doing refreshments this year.  Joe and Jean will take care of this.

Mailboxes – Jean will re-do the mailboxes as is but so that they are easier to read.

Spurs – We need to get signs to show house numbers off these spurs.  Need to get prices and check and see how many we need.  Jean will take care of this.

Cleaning of lots – Josh brought up the fact of the lots without houses we may run into an problem trying to get them cleaned up.

Event: Special Weather Statement
Alert:
...ARCTIC AIR HAS ARRIVED YIELDING A COLD WAVE ACROSS THE REGION 
THROUGH THIS WEEK... 
 
A very cold arctic airmass has built over the region and will 
persist through the week. Expect temperatures to fall into the 
single digits to teens across the mountains at times each night, 
with lows in the teens to 20s across the foothills and piedmont 
this week. Daytime maximum temperatures will struggle to get above 
the freezing most days this week, especially across the mountains 
where highs in the 20s will be common. 
The cold weather will likely result in high demand for 
electricity across the region. Power outages may result from the 
heavy electrical load. Those who require electricity for heating 
or medical equipment should consider having backup heat or 
electrical sources available. 
Take steps now to protect your property and health from the 
extreme cold. If you go outside, wear several layers of loose 
fitting, lightweight, warm clothing rather than one layer of heavy 
clothing. Mittens are warmer than gloves. Wear a hat and cover 
your mouth with a scarf. It is imperative that parents make sure 
children returning to school this week are prepared for the 
prolonged cold, especially if they will be outside waiting at bus 
stops in the mornings. If driving, keep your gas tank near full to 
avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines. Check your antifreeze and 
windshield washer fluid levels. Be sure to carry a fully charged 
cell phone. 
While at home, consider allowing indoor plumbing fixtures to drip 
to permit water to trickle through pipes and inhibit freezing. 
Use caution with space heaters in order to avoid fire or injury. 
If emergency generators will be used, they must be situated 
outdoors in well-ventilated areas to prevent carbon monoxide 
poisoning. Also, remember to check in on family, friends, and 
elderly neighbors who might be susceptible to the cold. Do not 
forget about your pets and livestock. Make sure they have a source 
of water that will not freeze and a warm place to take shelter 
from the wind and cold. 
Do not attempt to walk on frozen ponds, lakes, or streams, as the 
ice will not be thick enough to support the weight - even of a 
child. 
A cold wave is defined as average daily temperatures 12 degrees or 
more below normal mid-January average daily temperatures for 48 
hours or longer. Normal mid-January average daily temperatures 
are, for Asheville 37, Charlotte 41, and GSP 42. By definition it 
follows that a cold wave is when the average daily temperature for 
Asheville is 25, Charlotte is 29, and GSP is 30.

Alert:
...Winter Storm Slamming the Region... 
Snow, heavy at times, will continue through the afternoon from 
northeast Georgia, the mountains of western South Carolina, and 
much of western North Carolina from the foothills west into the 
higher terrain. 4 to 7 inches of snow has already fallen from 
parts of northeast Georgia up through the mountains and foothills 
of western North Carolina. The weight of the heavy snow may bring 
down some trees and power lines. Additional accumulating snow is 
likely. 
Meanwhile over the upstate of South Carolina and areas around 
Charlotte and points south, expect snow and rain changing to all 
snow. Accumulations should commence, especially on grassy areas. 
All interests should use extra caution driving. Please leave extra 
distance between you and other vehicle.
