The Board and Management are working on many items vital to our continued success. The following are highlights from the recent Board meeting
-) Dana Brown & Associates was approved by the Board to develop a Master Re-Image Plan for the community. The Master Plan will be developed based on the desired wishes of the entire community and once implemented will keep us competitive in the housing marketplace for the next 40 years.
-) The new website is now active and available as a resource for the community. You can find us at www.bchoa.org
-) The Board approved an increase in the pollution insurance coverage limits pending a request to cover “all locations” owned by BCHOA. This will give residents peace of mind that in the event our sewerage & water infrastructure is damaged or fails we have sufficient insurance limits to handle a claim.
-) The street overlay project was awarded to Huey Stockstill Company. With the low bid of $253,000; Huey Stockstill will soon begin work on what is our continued efforts to keep the roadways maintained.
-) The LDHH has issued new statewide requirements for water treatment. We previously implemented changes, on our own, and are now increasing the number of test sites in the system as well. A major concern for the community is make sure that every home completes a Cross-Connection Control Survey. The first time this survey was sent out the office received about 50% of the surveys back. If you did not complete the survey form, the first time, you will soon be receiving it again. Please fill out the request and return it to the BCHOA Office.
-) Merrill Lynch has been established as the financial investment adviser for the community. Our reserve funds will now be monitored and invested per the governing documents of the BCHOA.
-) The following are Entrance gate guidelines: At the Main Gate a one-lane restriction will continue during non-peak hours; at the East Gate the one-lane restriction will continue on a 24 hour basis; and the Marina Gate will continue as scheduled. The Security Committee requested and received approval from the board to test hand-held id scanners as a means to check visitors into community. The use of scanners will not be implemented until after consulting with legal counsel to make sure we are not violating any ones individual rights by requiring a scan of their id card. This will not affect residents and country club members having BCHOA decals visible on the windshield of vehicles.
-) The BCHOA is looking to reach out to the 20 individual condominium, townhouse and boathouse Associations within Beau Chene hoping to better understand how each works both separately and together. It is our hope to provide guidance in keeping them informed of services available and events which can have a positive impact on their future.
I am reminded that many residents only read what comes in the mail and the daily newspaper. It is important for every resident to hear about this information so please inform your neighbors and encourage them to sign up for this email service.
