OLD BUSINESS:    


ACC:    Charlie Johns reported about continual problem with dogs.  Deputy Jeff Dugi from WC Sheriff’s dept. discussed the countywide problem.  2005 an animal ordinance was passed and they can give a citation for vicious dogs.  Homeowners need to be a voice and contact their commissioner.  Pct. 1 is Albert Gamez and Pct. 4 is Larry Wiley.  Homeowner’s rights if a dog is aggressive on your property- you can protect yourself from the dog, be responsible if firearms are used.  The POA Board is limited on what they can do.  They can notify the property owner of the violation, then place a fine and if violation is not corrected or fine not paid, a lien can be placed on the property.
