Minutes of the

Starlight Mesa Homeowners’ Association

Board of Governors’ Meeting

 June 14, 2005



                    Muriel Horacek

                    Maynard Morris

                    Hank Smither


1.  Minutes of the May 11th meeting were approved.


2.  Treasurer’s Report: 

          --lease agreement was signed by Sookie Mathews

          --Maynard met with Jose (Gardener) and Debbie from the Agriculture Dept. to inspect the hillside.  Our plans met with her approval.


3.  A bid was submitted by Jose as follows:


                    A.  clearance all around, 1422 hrs                $19,820

                    B.  remove dirt from culvert, 368 hrs                        4,280

                    C.  repair concrete & asphalt, 175 hrs                  2,575

(including materials)                                          



     Although only $22,650 was budgeted for this work for 2005, the extraordinary weather could not have been foreseen.  It was agreed to accept this bid without asking for other bids.  Working with our own gardeners means they know the area, and we can follow up easier.  


4.  It was agreed to pay $50 for the next year for our Starlight Mesa website, maintained by Gordon Wood.


5.  We have 16 water meters on common areas, but only pay for 8.  However, only 4 are currently being used.  The Fire Dept. discourages too much watering, which creates brush, and then we have to pay for clearance, per their requirements.   


6.  Regarding weed control for front lawns, it is agreed that we maintain an accepted standard, but it is not necessary to have a manicured lawn.


7.  Approval was given to purchase a picnic table for the grass outside the pool area, and an additional garbage can for that area.


8.  The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 12 at the home of Muriel Horacek.


Respectfully submitted,



Muriel Horacek, Secretary
