Attorney Flowers advised the 2017-2018 Budget must be submitted to the City of Jacksonville by April 1, 2017. Jonathan Wright will draft the budget, and it will be reviewed and approved by the board at the March meeting.
The liability insurance proposal is $2,437. This issue will be tabled until our March meeting.
The District has received approximately $12,650.00 in voluntary donations from the District property owners. The donations were to be repaid in January 2017 when assessments were received from the Tax Collector. Discussion ensued regarding the need to have those funds available for an additional year, until January 2018, for future operating expenses. It was proposed that the District property owners be sent a letter asking that the District be permitted to retain said funds for another year. Each donating property owner may opt to be reimbursed in March 2017 or January 2018. It was proposed, and the vote was unanimous, that Chris Rose draft a letter to members stating the foregoing, and provide same to Chair Rene for review and mailing
Bobby Baker, Sharon Johnson, and Chris McMorrow will review the Request For Qualifications (RFQ 2102-01). The communications criteria should be removed. The Board will review and approve the final draft at the March meeting. The final draft must be published in the Daily Record and posted on the MCSD website. Attorney Flowers should receive a hard copy.
Based on William Jones’ visit and report, Sharon Johnson shared that the trash situation at Mayfair Village Apartments is under control at this time. The situation at The Preserve at St. Nicholas is awful but because there is a tall wooden fence surrounding that portion of the property, it does not affect Millers Creek at this time.
Sharon Johnson reported that Barbara McMorrow has agreed to serve on the Board, replacing Kay Gilmour. The vote was unanimous to have Barbara McMorrow join the Board.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 7:16 P.M.
