solely used for IronOaks activities, menus and information. The resolution was unanimously approved. APPOINTMENT OF AD HOC

COMMITTEE. Ms. Petragallo announced the appointment of an Ad Hoc Committee for the sole purpose of reviewing the Association’s Reserves and Policies associated with the maintaining of the Reserve funds. Dave Wigton will chair the Ad Hoc Committee. COMMITTEE CHAIR APPOINTMENT.

Mr. Karp made a motion to appoint Mike Kozak as Chairman of the Properties Committee to fi ll the unexpired term of the current Chairman. COMMENT PERIOD Jim Wegman, Unit 32A, asked how much

was spent to refurbish the tennis courts and what is the next level of the project. Mr. Ankeny: Approximately $375,000 has been expended to replace 10 of the hard surface courts. We will be spending approximately $25,000 to replace courts 1 and 2. The only other outstanding item is the clay courts and the clay courts at Ironwood. Mr. Wegman: Are we pricing people out of the golf course? Ms. Petragallo: We try to offer homeowners and members something appealing and stay within the budget. Our rates are lower than Cottonwood, and we offer a punch card. Mr. Wegman: People can go down the road and play for less and get lunch too. Homeowners do not see

punch cards as a good deal. Mr. D’Amore: Since water rates are very likely to increase, we will have to factor that into our golf fee calculations for next year. Mr. Ankeny: Our operation is different from Cottonwood, which is subsidized by their homeowners. Mr. Wegman: We will lose more golfers. Dick Rubin said the Fitness Center has

800 plus members and 1600 Silver Sneaker members. A new fi tness center opened and the fee is $10/month. Our Center was state of the art 10 years ago. There is no advocacy for a facility that

is used

by so many homeowners. Need to take the facility into the future. Mr. D’Amore: Anyone can make suggestions for use of the FACE Fund. The Fitness Center is already high on the list. Mr. Deken: There was a study to enhance the Center so it is high on the radar. Mr. Rubin: Need to be careful on how to spend the FACE money. Mr. D’Amore: The FACE fund is only one way to fund a project. We will have to face the fact

that we will have several major

projects that we will have to go to the homeowners for approval to fund. Ms. Petragallo: Needs change over time.

As a community are we going to step up and do major projects is the question. Ms. Petragallo encouraged homeowners to continue to bring viable ideas forward on this topic. ADJOURNMENT: The meeting concluded at 11:35 a.m.  — June 2012
