NEW BUSINESS: Discussion was held on placement of several income items to be captured on the 2018-2019 budget. Discussion was also held on uncaptured income should be split between the Capital Improvements, and Reserve fund in an effort to build both.

Budget final figures sends $425 to the Capital Improvement line item for 2018-2019. Discussion was also held on capturing the store income, and how we do it as a sideline of our main budget, as the store sustains itself economically except for salaries.

December 2017 Meeting Minutes
NEW BUSINESS: Q3 review is set for January 18th at 6pm. Notice for Candidate submissions of resumes for Elections was decided to be sent as soon as possible. Herb suggested sending resume notice Jan 1st. All agreed. Discussion was held on date for the Annual Budget meeting. It was decided that February 10th-11th would be the dates for that process. Chris will advise Byron. Gary continues to uncover thwarting of usage fees and other issues of members are using to keep from paying fees they owe. Discussion was held on specific cases on past due debt. The computer sometimes does not reflect what might be owed, and is tough for members that pay cash. We agreed that members need to pay when they check in. Members are not checking in. Gary has installed a program to notify members the same day that they haven’t checked in that will help clean up the problem. Immediate phone calls will be made to members that owe $100 or over. The one out of ten members that owe are vicious to our staff. Lengthy discussion was held on the topic. Gary suggested that new software can eliminate most of these issues. He is researching the program. Closing date for this season is January 2nd 2018, with reopening March 2nd, 2018. Pond Storage repair is in progress. Big mound will be removed over time. 35-40 new spaces conservatively will be available for rent. Possible start date will be Feb 1st, 2018. Various lengths will be available. ICR will tow from Pond Storage, as it will be configured in a stack style format that we will have to manage. Water run off will be driven to the current ditch. Coral gates (2) will be installed in Temp Storage to eliminate misusage. Winter projects were discussed. Herb suggested that the opening in the middle needs to be installed for motorcycles. Chris suggested speed bumps should go to each edge of the road, and maybe a posted speed limit sign to keep golf carts from going around. Chris suggested the back road was done cheaply, and not for longevity. Discussion was held on a center opening in the speed bumps for motor cycles. No conclusion was reached. Gary submitted a list of maintenance projects that are not known to have been done or not. Conclusion of these projects will be reported at the next BOD meeting. Gary suggested that he will be going to project management software that is easy to use for the employees. The Walkway has been completed. Rusted electric pedestals will be replaced. Just the outside cover.
October 2017 Meeting Minutes
NEW BUSINESS: Keeping the Park open year-round is legal, and would raise the annual dues. Maintenance will have to perform while members are camping. Byron advised that there will be a question on the ballot for the membership to check if they want to be open year-round or not. Byron suggested that if 51% of the membership voted to open yearround, then he would address when and how we could do it.

Gary is working on replacing them legally, as they were not in a legal spot. An ICR member complained about the signs which provoked the visit by the IGF inspector. IGF will now be policing the canal. ICR is concerned about our Bulk Heading, and was advised by IGF to contact them for policing which will now include citations to boaters for violations including open alcohol, fishing license, etc. Todd suggested that we are probably preaching to the wrong audience here in the room, but please discuss boating issues with any of the board members, or Gary. Todd suggested to please not cast fishing lines out too far and leave them unattended. Gary reported that it is a boater safety rule recognized by the IGF and can be subject to citation. Chris suggested that members who witness violations, please video it with their cell phones, as each craft has a license number on it. Byron reported that other than the Fire Marshal for our suggested Game Room, ICR is in compliance with all others, and that before we open next season, Gary will invite the fleet of inspectors out to ICR for a volunteer inspection of the Park. Byron reported that we are still experiencing abuse of the staff by members. Byron requested that Gary and Jackie get involved and use their judgement to evict the member from the park. Profanity is out of control. Byron reported that courtesy and respect will be mandated. Byron reported that for members that are parked around the water way there is an easement(understood), approximately 5 feet. A member asked a child to leave their area behind his unit.

Wayne suggested anti slip strips to be added to the epoxy grit floor. Discussion was held on the plan of the new game room at the front pool where storage is currently at with an entrance not on the pool side. Repairs must be made before it can take place, but it is in the works. Discussion was also held on the lack of access to the Club House. Gary will address. Member requested more activities for the kids during the week like they were last year. A new grass cutting protocol is in place showing on the sign in front of the store which of the 3 zones in the park will be cut on a certain day. Members complained about the grass being allowed to grow too high before cutting. Excessive rain this year has impacted the grass cutting.

May 2017 Meeting Minutes
NEW BUSINESS: Byron reported that the current late fee of $25 for storage and dues after 30 days will be reverting to the Bylaws regulation of 18% late fee after 30 days. Discussion was held, and the board members agreed. Discussion was held on bumping reservations. The rule is that members can reserve 60 days out. Members can reserve their guests 30 days out. Between the 30 days out and 15 days out, a member can bump a guest from their reservation. Discussion was held on a guest abusing the bumping rule by reserving the rental for themselves, then last minute changing to a site, and having their guest take the rental, causing another guest to lose their reserved guest rental. Certain members are phoning in at their convenience to find out who they can bump. This practice is causing issues in the office. Suzy stated the rule for the congregation and further discussion was held. Member suggested that a member should not be able to bump a rental reservation that has a deposit on it. Herb further clarified the rule to say that a member cannot bump another member or guest on a site when there are other sites available. Suzy suggested we amend the rule to state basically “no bumping with other sites available”. Further discussion was held on how to amend the rule. Chris suggested that last reserved guest is the first to get bumped, but Gary pointed out that, that policy would cause larger unexpected issues. Holiday weekends were identified as the problem. Gary explained that problem members would be kicked up to him for resolution, so that reservations would keep moving. Chris suggested a no bumping policy with a “cancelation waiting list”. Gary stated that we have one, but we could inform members better of its existence. Chris suggested that members know the Holiday sell out possibility and should plan accordingly, and no bumping should be allowed on holiday weekends. Gary resolved the issue that started the problem. Herb confirmed blackout dates applying to Coast to Coasters. Chris suggested that we make a Bylaw to resolve the issue as the Cove gets more memberships. Herb suggested that the topic be further discussed as a board. Members pointed out other ways that the rules on reservations are being manipulated. Member suggested that if a member is reserving the rental, they are stuck with it. Also suggested was that rentals are firm at 30 days and not up to 15 days. It was decided that the board would discuss further before taking action. Byron pointed out that some of the Rules and Regulations will be cleaned up for clarification. Example: the pool times and openings will follow the contract with the pool service. Herb pointed out that until we get the permits from the City the pools cannot open regardless if they were ready or not. Chris clarified that the pools will be open from Memorial Day to Labor Day with the back pool being extended until the end of September. Discussion was held on the availability of firewood. Resolution was that firewood would be sold during store hours. Gary pointed out that theft was an issue. Gary suggested the store close on Holiday weekends when the business stops. Discussion was held on pricing. Gary will set the price at $1 a stick.
