IAHA Board Meeting

28 Oct 2021


The meeting was called to order by President Gary at 7:00 PM. Present were Alan Wright, Al & Margaret Cleveland, Gary Van Horn, Robert English, John Horn and Herb Jolliff. There were three guests this evening.


SECRETARY: The minutes from the previous meeting in July were put up on the web about a week after that meeting. Herb Jolliff made the motion to approve the minutes as posted and Margaret Cleveland seconded. All approved by voice vote.


COMMENTS FROM GENERAL MEMBERSHIP: Anne Schenck described some City planning commission meetings where people were speaking about the Airpark and had some mistaken ideas about the building construction in the Airpark (the building construction, etc). The City Police Chief has offered to make a visit to the Airpark; Anne's hope is that there would be someone in City government who knows how things really are in this community. Gary suggested that April would be a good time for such a meeting with the City’s Police Chief.


Mark Overholtzer summarized his position about noise after dark and excess vehicle storage around a hangar on the State side which he has tried to work with for some years. Some future direction on this was suggested by the Board members, including some guidance from a passage in the ingress/egress agreement. City ordinances were gone over during this discussion that may be brought to bear, since the City has some jurisdiction regarding both of these complaints.


TREASURER: Margaret only had to put liens on a few houses for the yearly assessment, and every other household of the 159 lots is current. For the year's expenditures so far, the Association is on target for the current yearly budget.

The bills will go out with the ballots as usual, the plan is for them to assemble them on 2 November and go out in the mail by 4 November. There was a question about whether there should be a potluck desert for the General Meeting on 5 December, and this was considered a good idea.


ARCHITECTURE: Herb had nothing to report. There will be some new house plans coming up next year.


MAINTENANCE: Al said the equipment will be taken in for routine maintenance during the winter. He had prepared a draft letter describing the current plan for repaving the taxiways, including various preparations that need to be done regarding encroachment by trees, shrubs, etc. The Board members will review the letter through email and will send any recommendations to Al so he can incorporate them before publication.


PRESIDENT'S REPORT: Gary prepared a draft ballot which will be finalized before the mailing in early November. Also, there will be a summary letter going to the ODA regarding the recent favorable decisions regarding the planned airport fence, stating that we have had a good relationship with the ODA and hope that it will continue.


GOOD OF THE ORDER: Questions came up about whether there should be a policy regarding memorials, that the Board can be authorized to use small amounts from the general fund for commemorating airpark residents who pass away. That will be discussed at the General meeting in December.


ADJOURNMENT: The meeting was adjourned at 9:05 PM. The next meeting will be the General meeting on 5 December, a Sunday, at 2 PM. Respectfully submitted by Robert English, secretary.
