The Estates at Eagle Creek Property Owners' Association Board Meeting

October 25, 2021

127 Scenic Oak


Meeting called to order at 6:06pm. Quorum established.

Board Members present: Philip Vipond, President; Charlie Johns, 2nd Vice President; Karen Turner, Treasurer; Will Matay, Board member, Art Morgan, 1st VP; Theresa Morehous, Sec; Rebecca Hopp, Welcoming committee chair. Brian Morehous, property owner


Mistake was made at the annual meeting in February 2021 of adding a 6th board position without following the protocol in the By-Laws Art 4.1. Philip made a motion that we reluctantly remove Will Matay, 6th board position, from the board to be in compliance of Art 4.1 of the By-Laws. Karen seconded. Motion passed 5-0.


Will was asked if he still wanted to take care of the website, but he said no.


Secretary's Report: The minutes from Sept 9, 2021 have been previously distributed by email to the board members. Karen reported a correction of the financial report dated 9/9/21 Deposit $200.00; Debits: $335.46


Checking balance 9/9 $19,885.98 E Jones 9/9 (+.31) $39,009.13 Report bal: $58,895.11 The -$199.69 discrepancy from the Sept treasurer’s report can be explained by the addition of a deposit of $200.00 that was pending. It should have not been included. The automatic addition of the $.31 to the Edward Jones balance then gave the impression that there was $199.69 missing from the report. 


Art Morgan made a motion that the minutes be approved as corrected. Charlie Johns seconded. Motion passed 5-0.


Treasurer's Report: Deposits: $800.00  Debits: $6,689.48

Checking balance: $13,596.50 Edward Jones: $39,009.74 (+.43) Report balance: $52,606.24

Motion made to accept by Philip Vipond, seconded by Art Morgan. Motion passed 5-0.
