Master Policy Insurance presentation by Julie Ertz of Kraus Anderson Insurance.

Julie discussed what the master policy covers: property value, liability for common areas, pool, automobiles, additional equipment, workman’s comp, crime (association theft), directors/officers and umbrella liability. Julie explained that River Woods has a very limited market for their type of risk due to such cost factors as: age of structures, density of units, and vast acreage. As there have been minimal claims at the present time, Julie estimated a flat or slight increase for next year. She reviewed HO6 policies, which cover owner’s belongings, owner’s liability, improvements and betterments vs standard grade construction and should have loss assessment endorsement (gap between HO6 and master policy deductibles). Current deductibles: $5,000.00 per occurrence, with the exception of water damage, for which the deductible is $15,000.00. The replacement values are being increased this year by 2%. Each homeowner is responsible for purchasing their own HO6 policy. The HO6 policy should include the contents you move in with as well as the cost of improvements you have made to the unit beyond contractor grade material. October 1st renewal of the master policy, invoicing to be sent first week of August. Letters to homeowners to verify information for insurance purposes will be mailed out next week. The Board has a policy in place that the master insurance policy is not provided to owners, rather a Certificate of Policy Insurance will be sent to each homeowner. Please retain it for your own records. Any questions regarding our master insurance coverage should be directed to the HOA office and the Kraus Anderson agent as needed.

 

Maintenance Overview: Loren P

  • Loren discussed the buckthorn removal continuation. The process is lengthy but will pay off over time.

Chipper went down last winter for about a month so that did slow this year’s progress. The City of Burnsville does an annual review of all trees and marks them for mandatory removal. The city will also make treatment recommendations for trees that could be saved.

  • Pool refurbishment overview, approximate open date of mid-July pending weather.
  • Todd’s memorial – Partial completion by pond, hope to finish the additions to the memorial mid-summer.

 

GM Report: By Kimberly G

  • Insurance was sent for bidding in May. We are expecting proposals in beginning of August. The market is currently running with a 2-8% increase. There will be a letter going to all owners shortly that will ask you to provide the most current mortgage information on your townhouse.

Comment, Q & A Session:

 

Volunteers needed for the Night to Unite and ACC committee. Please contact the office if you can give some time to your association.

 

Q: Will there be road re-surfacing completed in area 162-213?

A: All road patching has been completed so there is no pot holes. Bids are being solicited and this area is one of the worst. Based on needs vs costs we have no idea if this area will be redone this year or have to wait until summer of 2019 after pool completion.

 

Q: Some pole lights seem to be leaning a great deal and looks bad for neighborhood. Why are pole lights needed?

A: Report any specific pole lights leaning and Loren will look at. The pole light future is being reviewed. The wait currently is for a solar solution that would last the night in the winter. We will nurse them through until a solar option is available. Pole lights are needed for the safety of residents and visitors. Some have stairs to navigate with no light and it would be extremely dangerous.

 

C: The office staff is so responsive, just wanted to say thank you to the office staff.

 

Q: How do we know what phase we are in for roofing?

A: The office has the phase chart just check with Kim after the meeting.

 

C: A car was stolen from driveway in the association, it was hotwired and found later by police and was involved in a robbery. It is important to be sure the office has your email so you get these emergency alerts.

Also it can be useful to join NextDoor Riverwoods for information and questions in the neighborhood.

 

Q: The office was closed in May for the Board meeting, did date get changed.

A: The Board meeting was cancelled last minute because of illness, please feel free to call the office and confirm in case of an emergency cancellation. Office was open regular hours.

 

Q: What is the procedure for contacting the Board of Directors?

A: All communication to the Board is sent through the office in an email or letter. The office will scan and or forward to the Board. The Board will respond back to you, usually in a written letter.

 

Q: Can persons on the ballot have a resume required to put on website when annual meeting packet is sent.

A: Great idea, the Board used to do something like this in the past and thinks it is a great idea moving forward.

 

Q: When is the next ACC meeting?

A: The ACC meeting is on the calendar on the website for June 19th Tuesday at 5:30pm.

 

Q: What is allowed for grills and fire pits for insurance and association?

A: Charcoal grills are not allowed within 25ft of structures and the same for any contained fire pits.

 

Q: Will stairs to walking paths be repaired?

A: It is very possible they will eventually be eliminated all together

 

Q: Why are the new stairs being built without railings?

A: Railings are extremely costly to maintain and replace. The stairs that are being used in most areas are a pitch and length that do not require railings and that will continue to be the new normal when replacements are completed.

 

Q: Has the association discussed flood insurance?

A: No, we are not in a flood area and owners can add this insurance on their own if they would like.

 

Q: How many companies are asked to bid on insurance?

A: Kraus Anderson goes to the open market, send out the specifications and takes from the entire pool that would like to bid. We are not a desired market in most cases because of age and density of units.

 

Q: What are the possibilities that deductibles will be raised?

A: There is always that possibility, most associations are between $10,000 and $20,000 deductibles. River Woods has committed to keep them low as long as possible.

 

Q: Will the pool be warmer?

A: It will be maintained between 80 - 82 degrees

 

Q: Is the depth changing on the pool?

A: Yes, it will be 5 ft. not 9.

 

Q: Are you familiar with black die being used to treat ponds?

A: No, Loren will check into this with the City.

 

Q Why are we removing buckthorn?

A: It is an invasive species, please refer to the Burnsville City website or the U of M website for more information.

 

C: Loren (Tiny) Grounds Manager is a Certified Arborist

 

Q: Why is ice skating banned on our ponds?

A: Safety for all! The ponds are actually holding ponds. The water systems from the roads and grounds drain into them including salt. Salt makes the ponds unsafe as does constant movement from water flowing in and out continuously.

 

C: River Woods looks so lovely and nice, thank you to all involved!

 

Q: What is the association doing about Emerald Ash Bore?

A: The association has injected the trunks of all ash trees that should be saved. The process will have to be repeated in 2019.

 

A HUGE thank you goes out to the Board for their service, time and dedication to the association and to continually make decisions based on the WHOLE association and not just one unit or area!

 

Board positions will remain the same until the next Board meeting.

 

Adjourn: Motion #25 Dave, #90 Vicki seconded to adjourn the 2018 Annual Meeting at 7:20pm. Approved

Members present: Marilyn Jenkins, President; Vice-President; Anna Goyette, Treasurer; Eric Tester; Ray Mincer, Valerie Impagliazzo and Don Picard

Members absent: Pat Picard, Secretary and April Bowen 

Others: Kimberly G. (GM-Office)

Call to order: President Marilyn called meeting to order at 5:30 pm at the River Woods Office.

Agenda:  Motion Anna, Don seconded to approve Agenda for tonight’s meeting as submitted. Approved

Minutes:  Motion Val, Ray seconded to approve 02/15/18 Board Meeting Minutes as presented. Approved

Business from the floor:

Unit #22 – Review of Last meeting….Request for railing plan; Work completed and owner contacted, plan not submitted for work and the work violates regulations. Motion Eric, Ray seconded to approve railing in courtyard. The Board denies this request of railing down common sidewalk and owner must remove railing from common sidewalk and repair or replace per association requirements with Loren, resubmit railing request by 5/1/2018 to include anchoring railing into the dirt only and include this will be maintained by the owner and removed by the owner upon sale listing of unit on the actual request. Approved

The Board reviewed this request again due to a note received asking for further review. Since this decision, another party has been out saying he is going to remove the privacy fence for another railing. Motion Anna, Ray seconded to deny the request of removing the partition fence and also deny the railing on common ground. This owner can use his garage for access. The walkway inside the courtyard should be a priority to replace, which is the owner’s responsibility. It is extremely unsafe. The contractor must remove the railing and repair/replace the concrete and not in any way alter the privacy fence. It must stay intact. The railing must be removed by 6/1/2018, request denied for further consideration of railing removal. If the railing is not removed by 6/1/2018, River Woods will remove the railing and replace the walk, with the cost charged to the owner’s assessments. Approved

Maintenance:

·        Garage Lights – Motion Val, Don seconded to send notice to owners after spring walkthrough for mandatory switch to updated lighting for any garage lights that still have the globe light fixture. That’s because those older fixtures will not work with the new LED bulbs we need to go to (because incandescent bulbs are being phased out and will no longer be available). We are required to have garage lights on from dusk to dawn, so fixtures that work with the new LED bulbs are required. (For other lights, such as front-door lights, owners can continue to use older fixtures if they choose, but the Association is required to have the garage lights provide illumination all night.) Owners can purchase a new garage light fixture from the office for $46.00 and self-install, or purchase the light for $50 and the office will install it. The deadline for owners to install the fixtures is 9/15/2018. If not done by that date, the Association will install a new light and charge it to the owners account. Notices will be out in May to owners who are required to make this switch. Approved   The new fixtures run on an A19 dimmable 60w LED. If you put the wrong bulb in these fixtures they will not run properly. The new LED light bulbs do not work in older fixtures correctly.

·        Todd’s memorial – The crew is working on the bench and other features which will be put up by the pond across from the office when ready. More to come on this unveiling.

·        Buckthorn Update – Work is completed this fall; spraying areas will happen in spring summer.

Financials:  

·        February and YTD Financials and reconciliations reviewed. Motion Anna, Don seconded to approve the financials as presented. Approved

Other Business:

·        Annual Meeting date: Room at the Mary Mother of the Church same place as last year, at 6 p.m. Monday, June 11, 2018.

Master Policy Insurance presentation by Julie Ertz and Holly Smith of Kraus Anderson Insurance.

Julie discussed what the master policy covers: property value, liability for common areas, pool, automobiles, additional equipment, workman’s comp, crime (association theft), directors/officers and umbrella liability. Holly and Julie explained that River Woods has a very limited market for their type of risk due to such cost factors as: age of structures, density of units, and vast acreage. As there have been minimal claims at the present time, Julie estimated a flat or slight increase for next year. She reviewed HO6 policies, which cover owner’s belongings, owner’s liability, improvements and betterments vs standard grade construction and should have loss assessment endorsement (gap between HO6 and master policy deductibles). Current deductibles: $5,000.00 per occurrence, with the exception of water damage, for which the deductible is $15,000.00. The replacement values are being increased this year by 1.5%. Each homeowner is responsible for purchasing their own HO6 policy. The HO6 policy should include the contents you move in with as well as the cost of improvements you have made to the unit beyond contractor grade material. October 1st renewal of the master policy, invoicing to be sent first week of August. Letters to homeowners to verify information for insurance purposes will be mailed out next week. The Board has a policy in place that the master insurance policy is not provided to owners, rather a Certificate of Policy Insurance will be sent to each homeowner. Please retain it for your own records. Any questions regarding our master insurance coverage should be directed to the HOA office and the Kraus Anderson agent as needed.

Buckthorn Removal Review: Loren P

Loren discussed the buckthorn removal process and the process of rejuvenating the areas after 3 years. The process is lengthy but will pay off over time. The handout will be included online with the next Villager.

New Pet Policy:

*Pet rule revision: New rules and procedures will begin 7/1/2017. This procedure will correspond to the City ordinance already in place.

Pets are not permitted on the common grounds unless leashed and attended. Pet owners should be educated on the City of Burnsville’s pet ordinance. The HOA will enforce Burnsville’s pet restraint/nuisance ordinance. Burnsville Animal Control has been given permission by the HOA Board of Directors to enter River Woods at any time and pick up any pet found running loose or to answer complaints by residents concerning pets. No leashes are to be attached to common grounds or units.

All domesticated pets (dogs, cats, and ferrets) over the age of 4 months must be registered with the City. Licenses expire in two calendar years and must be updated with the City. There will be one warning documented in Owner’s accounts for any pet related incident including, but not limited to; defecation not immediately cleaned up (take plastic baggies with you when walking pets), or an unleashed pet. The fine for the 2nd incident is $25 and the fine(s) increases by $25 for each subsequent violation; example $50, $75, $100, $125 etc. Once a fine has been assessed to your unit you will be required to turn in a copy of your City pet license to the Association office. If you have not registered your pet, the pet is not allowed in River Woods until it has been registered and that documentation is provided to the office. Fines cannot exceed $500.00 in any calendar year or you will be required to remove the pet from Townhouse Villages at River Woods Association.  The two-pet maximum per unit, will not be changed. All costs associated with the collection and legal action regarding pets are the responsibility of the unit owner to pay and will be assessed to their unit account. The issues throughout River Woods are very much out of control and many owners are not following the City ordinance or River Woods rules. All owners suffer by stepping in the defecation and the odor that goes with it. It also affects the crew’s ability to properly complete their maintenance in defecation-filled areas. The Board asks all owners’ help in resolving this issue and reporting any issues to the River Woods office. Aggressive/vicious animals such as Pitbulls, Rottweilers, and many other breeds, which may be a danger to other pets or people, are not allowed. No aggressive pets will be allowed in River Woods. In addition, if at any time your pet bites a person or domesticated animal or causes injury to either, your pet will need to be permanently removed from the Association regardless of any City or Animal Control guidelines.  This rule will be sent to all owners with the Annual Meeting minutes and Newsletter, The Villager, at the end of June.

·        Sidewalk and major replacement area projects started in June – #274 retaining wall and steps completed – then moved on to sidewalk sections and to #72 wall and partial walk and finish at #190-195 back of units retaining wall and sloping/grading.

 

·        Night to Unite Volunteers Needed – will be held Tuesday, August 1st. Homeowners should contact the office if you would like to volunteer.

 

·        Financial Report – for Fiscal Year 2016/17 – reporting on cash basis

Year ending funds in checking $22,869.60 and savings $41,553.38

Income $1,130,259.00 vs. Budget $1,083,648.00. – increased income was due to past years’ balances being paid off at real estate closings, overage in fees and fines as well as past legal fees recovered.

Expenses $1,108,340.00 – Of which $284,348 were replacement reserve items.

In Fiscal 2016 a complete CPA Audit was performed by CPA, Mark Van Zandt that included all expenses verified beyond what is required by the Federal Government.

 

a.       There is no litigation with the association at this time.

b.      Past-due assessments (fees-late charges-fines-legal-court ordered) more than 30 days past due - effective 6/20/2017 1pm of business day. Include the following units: 34, 64, 71,102, 123, 126, 142, 164, 167, 216, 217 and 262.

Some of these units are on payment plans and doing well at clearing up their balance and some are in foreclosure.

d.      Fees currently are $292.00 per month per unit. Our fiscal year runs from November 1st to October 31st. The 2018 budget is in review the new fee amount will remain the same as 2016/2017 - Fee envelopes will be sent out in October for use starting in November.

e.       Pool - Opened weekend of June 16th. All is going well at this time. Pool replacement plan is was approved and signed with the work to begin in spring of 2018.

 

Q & A Session:

Volunteers needed for ACC committee. Please contact the office if you can give some time to your association.

 

Q: What will happen if dogs defecate in a yard that is not their own. The owners who live there should not have to pay any fine.

A: The office will handle this on a case by case basis. Reports of sightings from the crew and owners can help to identify the problem dogs and their owners.

 

Q: Are the aggressive dog breeds allowed at all?

A: That is a touchy question because of mixed breads and will be taken on a case by case basis.

 

Q: Can we create a dog park in River Woods?

A: No, it is not being considered at this time. Issues of liabilities, dog defecation cleanup and placement are all items that have been considered in making this decision.

 

Q: Can the website be interactive for comments and discussion?

A: No – this was a major discussion upon implementing the website. People’s comments and input need to go through the office as a filter to avoid any issues and inappropriate items that anyone could post. The site is public so it will not be interactive.

 

A HUGE thank you goes out to the Board for their service, time and dedication to the association and to continually make decisions based on the WHOLE association and not just one unit or area!

 

Board positions will remain the same until the next Board meeting.

 

Adjourn: Motion Dave # 25, Betty # 70 seconded to adjourn the 2017 Annual Meeting at 7:31 pm. Approved
