Approval of Minutes:
Approval of the June 16, 2020 Board meeting minutes was made previously via email and the
minutes distributed to residents on June 21, 2020. Crystal Senyshyn’s resignation was also
accepted via email between meetings.
For the first time in recent memory, all dues were received in a timely manner to provide our working
income of $6315 for the upcoming fiscal year. Our expenses have been as usual. The small ($10)
legal expense was submitted to the state with our annual financial statement. The September
expense of $937.50 reflected 3 months of mowing the monument areas. Expenses incurred by
Board members are submitted to our treasurer, Janice Hudson, for reimbursement; these would
have been presented to, and approved by, the SRHA Board.
Architectural Committee Report:
No new or old business.
Communications Committee Report:
New residents have moved into 6220 Smith Road; Karen will gather their contact information this
week and an updated directory distributed.
Earlier this month, a light parade was held in our neighborhood; had we known it was scheduled, all
residents could have been notified and there would have been more spectators to cheer and provide
encouragement and excitement for the participants. It must have been a sight to behold.
Compliance Committee Report:
Thumbs up to our residents – there are currently no compliance issues with grass exceeding 8”.
However, we are requesting that residents with weeds cut them back or remove them before they
seed, multiply and create more unsightly problems next year. Karen will contact the owners of a
home for sale concerning the weeds filling their planting beds fronting both Steeple Run and Smith
Many complaints continue to be received concerning the proliferation of signs in our subdivision.
Signs are not allowed in Steeple Run, other than one For Sale sign per property; we would like all of
our residents to honor the Covenants and maintain the uncluttered appearance of our neighborhood.
Landscaping Committee Report:
The barberry and burning bushes at the Crystal Lake entrance were severely cut back last fall to
remove dead wood and have recovered from their renovation. They will require shaping next spring.
Preferred Contractor Report:
The Preferred Contractor program offers group discounts to Steeple Run residents; previous offers
included snowplowing, lawn fertilization, seal coating and radon abatement systems. Karen is
working with a company to possibly provide offers for mowing, seal coating and snow plowing.
A consistent Preferred Contractor participant is Arrow Septic’s spring and fall septic tank pump outs.
Herb will schedule Fall Septic pump out dates.
If you have a contractor that you would like to recommend to your neighbors for their consideration,
submit the contact information to email@example.com for inclusion on Our Contractor’s List,
our website’s version of Angie’s List. There are more potential categories than currently posted.
