Report of design and review: Russ Barber gave a yearly report of past projects. He informed us at this meeting that 2 of the 3 review members are retiring and will need to be replaced by the board.
Weed management plan: The 2016 plan has been filed with the County Weed Control office. Jette Meadows has sprayed this year for leafy spurge and has also released bugs that will also attack the problem. It is getting harder to find contractors to spray the difficult areas and using bugs is becoming more popular.
JMLA Covenant change proposal: The ballot to allow goats and llamas failed. The board then presented the 19 year history of the goat issue to inform and correct misinformation, using past board minutes and letters. The board had to make a decision on the goat and llama covenant violation. The Board then proposed what they plan to do next.
A motion was made from the floor to restrict the board from action against the goats and llamas and seconded. The motion was:
Due to the long history involving the use of Angora goats for Jette weed control and the fact that members voting were nearly 2:1 in favor of the covenant change to allow all residents to have Angora goats on their property, it is moved that the Board take no legal action regarding the use of Angora goats for weed control within Jette Meadows, or regarding the maintenance of a small herd of Angora goats and a protective llama on the Taylors’ properties.
The vote did not move forward as the motion was determined to be in violation of Jette Meadows Covenants.
Community watch program:There have been 10 signs installed throughout the neighborhood so that all homes have at least one sign between accesses to their home from highway 93. The neighbors now need to exchange phone numbers and information so that if any suspicious activity takes place, they can let their neighbors know. Telephone the Lake County Sheriff Department’s non-emergency number at 883-4700 or 911 in case of an emergency. Make sure to record information, like car or people descriptions. The success of a watch depends on communication with the neighbors
Election of JMLA board of directors: A call was made from the floor for any additional nominations. There were none. Each candidate spoke and the vote was taken. The results are as follows:
110 landowner voters and proxies.
Andrew Speer 63 votes Rich Beauchamp 49 votes
Gordon Terry 61 votes Amanda Rauch 49 votes
Brent Sliker 92 votes Cliff Anger 3 votes
A motion was made and seconded for adjournment.
