Text Box: The following matters were discussed at recent Board of Directors Meetings:
   At the November 2004 Meeting, the Board approved a request from the condominium association to have HVCA remove two large pine trees on either side of building 23.  These trees provide access for squirrels to get on the roof, chew through the siding and enter the attic.  The trees were trimmed a few years ago (due to this problem) but trimming was a temporary solution.
   The Board approved  a request to install a fido station on Golden Spring Court, and to install a second handicapped parking space at building 16.  
   The Board approved the 2005 Pool Contract with Recreational Enterprises, Inc.
   The Board discussed and Text Box: adopted the 2005 Proposed Budget that was sent to all owners in October 2004.
   At the December 2004 Board of Directors Meeting, the Board discussed the two recent burglaries and agreed that the Safety Committee needed to be revitalized.  New director, Enrique Chapoy, and homeowner Jonathan Dalton both volunteered for this endeavor.  
   The Board voted to have the new Treasurer, Scott Wilbur, be a signer on the HVCA bank accounts.  (Signature cards will be obtained and changed.)
   The Board discussed a pay increase request from HVCA’s litter lady and instructed the Community Manager to send a response as discussed.
   The Board briefly discussed outstanding covenant violation Text Box: matters including the status of two complaints that were filed by HVCA with the Montgomery County Commission on Common Ownership Communities.   
  The Board agreed to cancel the January Meeting.
