Our New Hunters Trace wood fence on NE 7th Street has been installed -12/20/2023.  Be sure and pay for your part of the cost if you have not already done so.

New Roof:  I just had my roof shingles replaced since it was so hard to get house insurance on a roof over 15 years old.  I compared a few quotes and had the best price including all extras including the price from: "Big D Roofing".  They also installed my roof 15 years ago and did an excellent job then.  Call 352-236-2959 or Paula at 352-266-6484 and tell then I sent you there. (Robin Corsiglia).

Yard Sod: I just had part of my yard with new grass by Sod Central.  They did a perfect job and did everything that I asked them to do and had a very good price that was much lower than all other quotes i got.  Three very hard workers that had the equipment and knew how to do the job.  If you need SOD installed call "SOD CENTRAL" and ask for Ken Nelson ---352-671-1763.  Call me for more info (Robin Corsiglia).

Septic Tank Warning Information:

I had to have my septic tank pumped out recently and have a warning for any one that needs theirs pumped in the future. Septic tanks have two sides with each side having a removable cover to pump them out.  The first tank side is to get the solid waste and liquid waste. When it is full, the liquid goes into the second liquid tank side.  When it is full, the liquid goes into the drain field and then into the ground.  I was told to have both pumped about every 5 years but this depends on the number of people in the house.  I had mine pumped about 4 years ago and took measurements of where the tank pump cap was located.  Recently I had mine pumped I found out the company that pumped it out 4 years ago only pumped the liquid tank side.  This meant the solid tank continued to fill up causing my problem. As the solid tank was pumped, the worker looked at the top of the liquid tank and saw that the water was rushing in from the drain field indicating the drain field needed to be replaced.  Pump the tank = $350, Drain Field = $3,800. 

Warning:  If you have yours pumped, make sure they pump both sides of the tank.

 

We had our Hunters Trace Homeowners Association meeting on June 24, 2023 and voted to keep our current Board of Directors and voted to have a new fence built along NE 7th Street.  All Hunters Trace Homeowners will be assessed $365 per lot for the fence.  When official meeting minutes are sent to me, I will put them on this web page.  This should include how, when, and where to pay for this assessment.  Both of the letters from the HOA Meeting on June 24, 2023 are in the .PDF format in the Deed Restructions section.

HUNTERS TRACE HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION HOA MEETING MINUTES June 24, 2023

Kevin Boutwell opened the meeting at 9:09AM. Kevin thanked everyone for taking their time to attend our Saturday morning HOA meeting. He reminded everyone that this meeting is about voting on the new fence and also that it is time to nominate or re-elect Board Members for another term. He thanked Tim Bell for his time (8 years) as Treasurer on the HOA Board. He asked everyone to consider volunteering for the now open Treasurer position. Kevin asked if there was anyone who wanted to run for a Board position, no interest was shown. Chuck Trout made the motion to re-elect current board members for another term, another homeowner second the motion. Current board members were re-elected for another term. Tim Bell announced that he would be willing to extend serving as Treasurer until the end of the year while we continue to search for a new Treasurer volunteer, Thank you , Tim! Rebecca Ritz expressed a possible interest in serving as Treasurer. Kevin reviewed the new by-laws that we (the homeowners) passed last year, he also reviewed that the HOA fee has increased to $120.00 per year and that there are currently 12 homeowners who have not paid their dues for the current year. Kevin told everyone that a new neighborhood security surveillance sign has been put up at our front entrance. This is not surveillance by the police, but cameras at homes in our neighborhoods. Anything we can do to deter one person thinking of entering our neighborhood commit crime, the better. We can all be aware and help to keep our neighborhood safe. Kevin opened the discussion to the Vote regarding putting up a new front entrance fence. He reminded everyone that himself and the board make every effort to initiate measures which help to improve the community as a whole. Various questions were asked and answered regarding payment options (option to make 3 payments), number of estimates received (3), how long the current fence has been up (12 to 15 years), type of fence to be put up, and legal ownership of the fence. (Kevin told everyone that the HOA board members would look further into this matter). A homeowner expressed concerns regarding the homeowners who live along the fence, and the need for their commitment to keep trees and bushes away from the fence. A letter will be sent out to these homeowners with new guidelines requiring trees and shrubs to be kept 18 to 24 inches off the fence line in an effort to protect and preserve the integrity of the fence. Debbie read the minutes from the last board member meeting. The brief meeting was about the upcoming HOA neighborhood meeting on the proposed new fence and board member voting. Chuck made a motion to approve the minutes. Kevin second the motion to approve. Tim gave the financial report; $3,000 in the fence fund, $8,000 in the reserve fund, $7,518.32 in the General Fund, $15,518.32 in the total budget. He also reported that insurance for the board had gone up this year, $1,000. Tim confirmed that about 12 Homeowners have not paid their HOA for the current year. Kevin made a motion to approve the Financial Report, several homeowners second the motion. Kevin explained and started the voting process for replacing the current Front Entrance Fence with a new one. A quorum was reached, the voting totals between in person votes and Proxy votes was 57 YES votes and 13 NO Votes. The New Front Entrance Fence has been Approved and Voted for by the homeowners. Each homeowner (per lot) will be pay $365.00 for the new front entrance fence. The HOA will be sending out New Front Entrance Fence Invoices within the next couple weeks.

A Patriotic Hunters Trace Hawk: Walking my dogs today (6/29/2023) I saw a hawk fly into a tree and took these pictures with my iPhone set at 15X.

My pictures of the month using Bluetooth Blink Cameras.  I also got great pictures & videos of my Humming Birds, Cardinals, Tuffed Titmouse, & Squirrels.

These Blue Birds built a nest in my bird house and I was able to open the side panel and take a picture of the babies.  They will fly away soon.

New Windows?  My house is now 29 years old and needed new windows since the screens did not fit, permanent mold was on some edges, and some of the double pane glass had the seal broken.  After three quotes, I went with Window World.  There price was best and their windows had all the features I wanted with the options including energy efficiency.  The installation took 2 days and was suprisingly neat with do paint touch up required.  If anyone wants to talk about my experience, call me.
