Ray McDermott met with James
of Southerns Greens to walk the area around the retention pond where the
mowing is in question. Neighbors have been throwing green waste,
tree limbs etc. over the fence which has become a problem. Southern
Greens in turn has been limited to how far they can mow unless they haul
the green waste away. However, they have agreed to remove what is
there now and will continue to mow. Ray also indicated that the Indian
Hawthornes are too costly to replace at the entrance, and Southern Greens
suggested a wait period before replacing. Chris made the motion to accept
the minutes as amended, Ray seconded all were in favor.
Blaise Simone checked into
Divine Mercy for a meeting place but it is not available. There is
also an area at the west entrance of the Mall but require $75.00 per hour.

alternative individual other than Southern Greens for lawn maintenance.

fines could be issued against repeat non compliance offenders. There
was much discussion as to how this could be approached and the legality
of it. SCM indicated they would look into these options. Ray
stated that the attorney is notified after the third letter which should
save the cost of continuing the letter sequence.
Ray made the motion to adjourn
at 8:41, Chris seconded and all were in favor.
