    1. Discussion and possible action to define a process by which the ACC conducts business. I think the change from JK Bookkeeping to Goodwin makes doing business difficult for the ACC. We need to design as process that is acceptable to the ACC members and is easy for the ACC members to follow.  This process also needs to be a process that the auditors will approve.

BEFORE BUILDING ANY STRUCTURE, BE AWARE

All structures must be approved, in writing, by the Architectural Control Committee (ACC).  Failure to comply with this Covenant requirement can result in SUBSTANTIAL FINES.  A permit must be filed and approved, in writing, by the ACC before construction begins.

Permit fees are $500 for new homes or additions to living areas.  While an approved permit is required for all structures, there is no charge for permitting additional, non-living area, structures.  This includes swimming pools, fences, retaining walls, driveways, storage buildings, patio/deck additions above ground level, to mention a few.

Failure to secure a permit before starting construction will incur another $1,000 fine.  If the Property Owners’ Association is forced the hire a lawyer to enforce compliance, the lot owner will be additionally charged for all legal costs with a minimum charge of $1,500 for legal fees.  This legal fee applies to all enforcement actions, whether for new construction or simple compliance with the Covenants by existing homeowners.
