 --Muriel reported that none of the sensor lights at the pool were on in the evening, but the one at the tennis court was lit.  Dayton said he purchased new bulbs and would replace those burned out.

--Joe reported that the delay in planting the Starlane slope was due to herbicide application, and waiting to be sure it was effective.  Plants were delivered and stashed behind the oleanders, and planting should start this week.

--Muriel reported that Millikan's house at 308 Starlane has a buyer, and homeowners' papers were requested by the selling agent. 

--Joe will choose plants for the right side of the entrance, after talking to the house owner.

--Regarding Mrs Pixler’s request that two trees be removed from Mesa property behind her house: Joe left messages twice requesting a visit to her back yard to see the trees, but received no reply.  The Board decided that Joe should inform her that we will not authorize the removal of these trees merely to improve a view, and also since it may have an adverse affect on the slope. 

--Upon looking at the recent water co. bills, Dayton determined that the meter he requested that the water company turn-off has not been done.  He will call them about it.

--Upon looking over the Merito Pl. file, we agreed to ask Jose for the cost to cut down the olive tree and oleanders (but not dig up the roots).  The estimate of $850 given two years ago included removing both the olive and oak trees and roots.  In the meantime, Dayton will contact City Hall to find out the procedure to receive a permit to remove the oak tree and if an arborist would be necessary.

--Muriel reported that as a result of the request in her last email newsletter that residents RSVP that they received it, there were 20 who did not respond.
