    Item # 4 – Reports
    – Financial report was provided by Sean Looman. Handouts were given to those
    present. For many years we had one account but for clarity in reporting and ease of
    record keeping, the General Fund/Operating Account and the Legal Fund are now in
    separate bank accounts. The source of our General Fund revenue is from annual
    Association dues providing a revenue projection of $13,625, assuming all homeowners
    pay. However, 10 homes remain in non-payment status. Joe reviewed the Operating
    budget item by item which is based on an adjusted review project of $12,375.
    Maintenance and improvements were discussed for the 5 properties owned by the
    Association, i.e.., the 2 parcels that make up Mohican Park, parcels on each side of the
    “narrows” and the entrance). The Account balance on 6-6-19 for the Legal Fund was
    $7,540.75. Voluntary donations were received from 41 members. Expenditures were
    also reviewed and discussed.
    – Membership – Jon Haun spoke of 6 new members. He also mentioned the homes
    that are up for sale in the neighborhood. Jon stated that it would be helpful to have a
    new Directory, including Deed Restrictions, to distribute to new residents.
    – Webmaster & Directory – Tracy Pinto, our webmaster, reported that ideas &
    suggestions are welcomed. Compliments for her completed work were received. Tracy
    is willing to forward information on privacy of the website to those interested. Question
    raised: is it possible to pay our dues online, if so, what would be the cost to the
    Association? Tracy will investigate this. A new neighborhood directory is currently being
    developed. Please review the old directory and let us know if changes are needed.
    New homeowners will be contacted for their info.
    – LINC – Sue Webster described topics discussed by LINC who monitors Meridian
    Township Board meetings and the issues/policies under consideration. This valuable
    coverage of Board meetings by LINC and our membership in LINC means we will be
    informed on items important to our neighborhood without having to attend or monitor
    each Township Board meeting.
    – Landscape & Maintenance – Joe Pavona described much of cost for this item
    under the section on financial report. Our current focus is on property improvements.

    At the entrance, Lawns and More will clean-up and install landscaping to extend
    plantings on the southwest corner of Cochise & Comanche to be similar and
    compliment those at the corner of Comanche & Mt. Hope.
    – Hannah Farms Update – Jack Davis first congratulated the Board for its
    professionalism. Mr. Davis further mentioned that we are fortunate to have come this
    far in protecting our interests. The goals of the neighborhood continue to be no
    connectivity of any type with Tonapah Trail, land preservation between the Eyde
    property and ILE, and an acceptable surface water management plan for any
    development of the property that does not adversely impact ILE. The Association felt
    the need to bring in legal counsel to protect these ends and ensure that our concerns
    are taken seriously and properly addressed, and, to speak collectively through one legal
    representative. We are appreciative of having Mr. Davis represents us, especially given
    his exceptional reputation and expertise in these matters. Capstone has delayed 3
    times this year in attempting to submit a plan to the Meridian Township Board. One
    additional possibility of a senior center (4 stories) has also been discussed. A map was
    provided to all present. Persistent monitoring will continue.

    Joe Pavona: Section 3=Pat Lipsey. Term of service is three years.
    Item # 6 – Announcements –

    Trail. Complaints have been received.

    – Deed Restrictions – In respect to our neighbors and to maintain property values,
    letters will be sent to habitual offenders. ILEHA Board members Jon & Carol, as
    realtors, will do their part in letting buyers and their representatives know and
    encourage reading of the same.
    -Reminder that liens will be placed on property, according to the Deed Restrictions,
    for non-payment of dues. 7% interest on the unpaid balance along with any legal and
    administrative costs will be applied.
    Item #7 – Other Business & Open Discussion – Interest was expressed in a
