IAHA Board Meeting

January 28, 2016


The meeting was called to order by President Gary at 7:00 PM. Present were John Horn, Dave Martin, Al and Margaret Cleveland, Gary Van Horn, and Alan Wright. Herb Jolliff had called to let us know he would be out of town, and Robert English was unavailable.


SECRETARY: The draft minutes of the last meeting were posted on the website for all to read. Dave Martin made the motion to approve the minutes as posted, and Margaret Cleveland seconded. All approved by voice vote.


TREASURER: Margaret Cleveland ran down the income and expenses since the start of the year, with 65% of the membership having paid their homeowners dues, and the printing of the yearly directory having been accomplished and distributed. The North Park has yet to reimburse us for their share of the yearly directory printing costs; they are working on getting that to us. She also gave the current balances of all accounts. The accountant who does the tax forms for IAHA is currently working on the 2015 taxes.


ARCHITECTURE: There have not been any new projects since the start of the year.


MAINTENANCE: Al stated that four gallons of weed killer have been purchased, and the CD of the maintenance manual for the tractor has also been secured. Some flooding along Bonanza taxiway has been serviced by Action Drain. The issue of pipeline maintenance was discussed, and Gary asked that the IAHA documents (including the architectural guidelines) be reviewed before this matter is decided upon. Mowing of the common properties will begin in April.


PRESIDENTíS REPORT: Gary said he wanted to get together with Keith Moes, Margaret Cleveland, and Gail Hill to do an audit on the books since the Treasurer post has changed hands, and craft a formal budget based on past expense patterns to forecast expenses for the year.


The formation of a committee to report on Henry Bartleís progress, to make sure he is complying with the agreement he has made with the Association, was discussed. A periodic status report from him, one in mid-February and one in mid-March which includes a timeline for completion, was agreed upon. Gary will discuss this with Henry.


GOOD OF THE ORDER: John Horn talked some more about the possible taxiway maintenance plan, saying that nothing is cast in concrete at the moment. Margaret said there was a possible cap on the amount of money that a 501c organization could have on hand, and this needed to be researched before a decision has been made.


ADJOURNMENT: The meeting was adjourned at 7:40 PM. The next scheduled meeting is on April 28 at 7:00 in the EAA hangar. Transcribed from recording made by Dave Martin, and respectfully submitted by Robert English, secretary.
