Because of COVID, the Annual Meeting was held outdoors at the Pool, with some 20 in attendance. Voting for the new Board was held prior to the meeting through mail-in ballots. President Esparza reported that, despite the decline in membership, the Board has actually come out ahead.
Despite the inevitable limitations, the budget Board saved about $9000, which can be used toward necessary major projects: repairing the parts of the perimeter wall that are WOHA’s (versus the property owner’s) responsibility and completing the entrance-lighting projects at Whisper Path and Whisper Willow.
These savings occurred because of re-negotiating the grounds- maintenance contract, by going to a drip-irrigation system, and by, unfortunately, having fewer events because of COVID.
