PRAI Board Meeting Minutes 3-29-10
Board members Bill Paschall, Toby Newlin, Gail Finnegan, Megan Klein and Mike Natinsky were present. Property owner Sue Bennett was also present.
The previous meeting’s minutes were read and approved.
The treasurer’s report was reviewed. Year to date, $45, 411.69 has been collected in Association dues. 150 lots have paid dues at $300.00. One property owner sent a dues check in the amount of $211.69. The treasurer’s report was approved.
The Dudleys sent in a dues check that did not fully cover their amount due. The explanation was that the amount missing was the amount it had cost to replace a tire allegedly punctured by the front gate. Mike Natinsky made a motion that the treasurer contact the Dudleys and request they send the balance of their dues and inform them that the board has decided to pay for the tire. Motion was unanimously approved.

New keypads and card readers can be obtained from American Fence Supply in Georgetown and AutoGate.
