Special Meeting Notice – Oak Wilt
Tuesday, July 15, 2014
23802 Oscar Road, Spicewood TX 78669
Paleface Ranch Lot Owners:
A Special Meeting of the Paleface Ranch Association will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 15, 2014. The meeting will take place at the Klein residence located at 23802 Oscar Road, Spicewood, TX 78669.
Oak wilt has been diagnosed in the subdivision by certified arborist, Don Gardner, and Texas A&M Forest Service agent, Eric Beckers. In cooperation with the Texas A&M Forest Service a plan has been formulated to contain oak wilt and stop the spread of the disease from the one epicenter identified.
It has been proposed that the Association finance the oak wilt containment project, 40% of the cost of which would be reimbursed by the Forest Service through their oak wilt cost-sharing program. Two bids of $10,000.00 and $15,499.00 have been received. These are quotes based on a preliminary trench line and the numbers may change slightly. The bids do not reflect the 40% reimbursement from the Forest Service.
The purpose of the Special Meeting is to discuss the oak wilt problem, containment strategy and costs involved. A vote will be taken to decide if the Association should finance the oak wilt containment project. Should it be decided that the Association will finance, a second vote will be taken to decide whether a special assessment will be levied or the budget amended to meet the oak wilt containment expense.
