Election of officers, Max Roe – President, Betty Shaw – Vice President, Jane Stevenson – Secretary/Treasurer, John Hedge and Sharon Eichmann members.

Financial report:  Susan Keene reported that our new financial Institution being a credit union provides a better interest rate.

September Minutes and Annual Meeting Minutes had been distributed to the board prior to the board meeting.  Jane Stevenson motioned to accept minutes, Sharon Eichmann seconded motion.  All approved.  Minutes will be posted to the web site this week.

Pet Waste Stations – further investigations with other communities indicate that installation of such waste stations would not likely cure the problem.  If people are not responsible enough to take care of their pet waste as a general practice, the waste stations won’t cure the problem.  Jane Stevenson moved to abandon the project, motion was seconded by Sharon, Eichmann.

Painting bids were reviewed.  Sharon motioned to accept Elite Pro Painters as the painting company for this calendar year, John Hedge accepted the motion.

Lawn service contracts has been submitted.  The services include mowing, fertilizing, leaf removal, shrub trimming and snow removal.  Considerable discussion was given regarding per hour rates.  Larry Edwards stated he believed we could convince the company to provide a more specific rate for each service.  We will award a one-year contract to Growing Image.  Sharon motioned to accept Growing Image, John Hedge seconded the motion.

Solar Panels.  One homeowner had requested he be allowed to install solar panels for his property.  Given the age of our units and space constraints, this is not a practical environment for Country Village.  The request was denied.

Parking:  Max is still working on modifications to the parking within the community.  There are more and more vehicles parked outside of owner’s garages and driveways.  This is causing a lot of concern and issues on some of the narrower streets.  This can impact emergency vehicles access to a resident in need and can impact snow plowing.  PLEASE PARK YOUR VEHICLES ON YOUR DRIVEWAY OR IN YOUR GARAGE. 
Financial Committee to review the 2017 financial records has been planned.  John Hedge and Jane Stevenson will accompany the homeowners in their review.  John will coordinate the date and time. 

During the executive session, the board voted to meet every other month.  The date and time of the next meeting will be March 12, 2018.

No further business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:25.

Jane Stevenson, Recording Secretary
