June 2022 Board Meeting Recap
The RomeRock Association held their monthly Meeting on Saturday, June 4, 2022 at the clubhouse with the following directors present, Scott Soble, Nadine Pope, Bob McClintock, Louise Lisac, Rick Brothers and Jeff Grosse.
President, Scott Soble called the meeting to order at 10 a.m. and Cheryl Fain gave the invocation and led the Pledge of Allegiance. Scott welcomed everyone and reminded them that tonight is our first concert at the Kathy Crandall Pavilion. Pat Sowry called the roll. The April Annual Meeting Minutes and Reorganizational Meeting Minutes were approved.
Bob McClintock advised those present that the April Treasurer’s Report was not complete due to the high volume of payments made before the May 1st deadline. Both the April and May reports will be reviewed at our next meeting. Bob did, however, say that collections were on track to meet budgetary requirements.
Under Legal, Louise reported that there are no current legal issues.
Under Financial and Collection, Nadine reported that, to date, in 2022, we have collected approximately $60,000 in delinquent dues and assessments. That is already ahead of our 2021 collection. More collection letters to delinquent accounts will be going out soon.
Scott reported for Lake Management that Aqua Doc is on the lake perodically checking for algae blooms and asks that if you see something please contact Lake Management at email@example.com The first full lake treatment will be scheduled soon. We hope that, if necessary, two full treatments will be done this summer if the weather cooperates.
Jim Fell reported for Lake Safety that there were several incidents, mostly involving jet skis on the lake over the Memorial Day weekend. He is very pleased with the patrol team. They are looking out for our members safety as well as checking for lot numbers and RRA stickers on all watercraft. Jim wanted to especially thank two residents for their assistance on the water last weekend. Bob Chudakoff and Dan Dietz assisted the patrol during two jet ski incidents.
Steve Kaufman, Village Council Liaison, updated those present about the Police levy to be on the ballot this year, the water tower situation, hiring of a new village road employee and working with the association to discuss the possibility of the village taking over maintenance of some off lake roads. This, if it occurs, will need to be a mutually beneficial agreement between both parties.
Marie Kaufman reported for Board of Review that they will be meeting this week to discuss a citation that has been disputed.
Rick reported for Building, Facilities and Amenities that the bathroom refresh is nearly complete and is greatly appreciated by residents. He also discussed the new signage, gates at the Marina ramp and Pickleball, Tennis Courts. The Concession Stand is open weekends and holidays and beginning Monday the pools will be open until 9 p.m. We are making progress, one project at a time and hopefully can continue to make improvements.
Scott reported for Administration and Personnel that we had our monthly employee meeting to review what is happening and do any needed problem solving. Things will be changing at the office this fall when Jen Addair is on maternity leave for several weeks. Jen will return working a reduced schedule both remotely and in the office. Our newest office employee, Wendy Carley, will become full time and assume more responsibility. We are so blessed to have an office staff who looks out for each other and works so well together. I’m sure Pat, Jen and Wendy will keep things going just as well as they always have. Our maintenance staff is a great team as well. This is their busiest time of year. If you see them, be sure to thank them for all they do.
Both Bob and Jeff reported for the Strategic Advisory Committee. The committee is using the information gathered from several focus group meetings to develop a strategic plan for the future of our community. They are beginning with a Mission Statement that will be easily recognizable for our community.
Representatives from several area clubs also provided us with information. Barb Buckley spoke for STARS. Fireworks will be July 2nd and the Rib Cookoff will be held September 3 and will include another concert at our new pavilion. They are also trying to schedule a Wine Bus Tour on August 20th. More information will follow. Dave Emick, president of the Fishing Club, advised us about the fishing seminar to be held June 11 from 10-12 at the covered bridge pavilion. Both children and adults can learn to catch and clean fish. Cheryl Fain let us know that the Community Preparedness Club still meets as needed and focuses on education. Marie Kaufman, president of the Pickleball Club, told us their first meeting will be June 12 at 5 p.m. at the court. The group already has over 60 members.
Our next meeting will be Saturday, July 9th at 10 a.m. at the Clubhouse
