Country Walk’s 5th Annual Homeowners’ Meeting

The 5th annual Homeowners’ Association meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2001 at the Brownsburg Public Library. The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. The library is located at 450 S. Jefferson Street (their phone number is 852-3167).

Attached are copies of the budget proposal for the 2002 calendar year. Please take a moment to read through these pages. We want everyone to feel comfortable with where the budget numbers come from. We continue to follow up on every possible supplier lead and these are the best rates going.

Street Lights/Safety

A reminder to keep an eye on your outdoor lamp post. Please replace any burned out bulbs promptly -- thank you! This will help make our community more secure. Please help watch your neighbor’s property. We have had a few things stolen/vandalized. Please, if you see something/someone suspicious, please help us all out and ask questions.

Open Board Position

This fall marks the end of John Mullen’s term on the HOA board so nominations are being accepted for this position. John has not decided as to whether he will run again or not.

This would be for a three-year term, with the majority of time commitment coming around Sept/Oct with the annual meeting.

Please call Matt McQuiston at Kirkpatrick if you would like to be placed on the ballot. Other questions can be directed to John, Darcy, or Greg.

To run for a board position, you have to be a homeowner and have current good standing with the homeowner’s association (dues paid).

New ACC Positions

We are going to create a new Architectural Control Committee. We are looking for 3 interested people to be the ACC members. This would entail receiving ACC submissions/requests, meeting as the committee to decide whether or not the project does not violate covenants and follows the ACC guidelines. In addition, at the beginning, the ACC will meet with the Board to create a new comprehensive list of guidelines. This list will be based on the existing guidelines, precedence set, and/or the ACC survey that was completed by the homeowners a couple of years ago. PLEASE consider this, we need people to help. Don’t think that someone else will do it! This committee is required for the HOA to function properly.

School’s in Session – Drive Carefully!

Drivers, please watch your speed during morning and evening hours while driving through your neighborhood. We have many children out at bus stops or playing while the weather is still nice.

Leaky Faucets

Anyone having trouble with leaky shower faucets? The replacement parts for the single-handled Moen version faucets can be found at J & J Plumbing in Plainfield. They can even rebuild the main cartridge, saving you $30 over a replacement. Be sure to ask about a Cartridge Pulling Tool!

LAWSUIT

The attorney representing the Country Walk Homeowners Association will be present at the annual meeting. The litigation is ongoing. Due to possible mis-understandings, we will not discuss the lawsuit in detail hear, but can answer some questions at the annual meeting. Please attend to that you can hear (from the horses mouth) what the current issues are. Please do not concede to gossip. There are many "stories" circulating the neighborhood. Please plan on attending the annual meeting.
