Open Forum:

A neighbor on Poinciana recently had an issue with his water heater and discovered that the PSI was 95, which is very high. He wanted to let us know and if anyone has the same issue, there are devices you can purchase to make adjustments to lower.

Entrance sign for Coolcrest repair. Thoughts were to wait until the shopping center is built as there is a good possibility the sign will be covered in their plans.

Trucks still parking on street. A letter had been sent out already but we will send a reminder and put on Next Door.

Some neighbors are concerned over the large trucks in the subdivision, that they are being worked on and washed. A concern over the oil and chemicals that are being put into the environment could be harmful. Tires full of water at a house on Manzanita. The board suggested the neighbors call code compliance for these complaints.

There is also a house on Madrona that appears abandoned, trashed and run down. The board suggested Metro Health might be able to investigate.

A question was brought up about the skirting requirements for mobile homes. They do have to be fully enclosed.

Next meeting will be held on April 16, 2019.

Phase 1 of the proposed water rate hike went into effect with the current bill while negotiations are still being held between Southwest Water and PUC.  They are required to report monthly to the SOAH judge as to their progress.  Nothing settled yet.

Meeting was held at the Christian Family Baptist Church and was called to order at 7:30 PM by President, Eldon Rhodes.

Minutes from the May 8, 2018 meeting were read and approved.

Treasurer’s report was read and approved.

Old Business

Some brush and grass were removed from the entrance  to help motorists to be able to see oncoming traffic better.  Thank you to Richard and Eldon.

New Business

There is a hearing July 12, 2018 to determine if Southwest Water Company is a Class A or Class B utility.  Indications are that this will be a drawn out process.  Phase I proposed rates will go into effect Sep. 24, 2018.  This is only temporary until the final rates are agreed upon.

The old River City Metal Finishing Co. property on Potranco Rd between Potranco Automotive and Lone Star Cross Fit had been placed on the National Priority List for cleanup by the EPA.  It has been approved and the EPA has scheduled a community hearing for Aug 14, 2018 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM here at the church.  At that time they will explain what they will be doing to get this cleaned up so that our water supply stays safe which it is right now.

Richard has suggested that the POA send letters to the owners of 18 wheeler vehicles that are parking in our subdivision advising them of the new county signs that prohibit these types of vehicles from entering except for local deliveries. A motion was voted on and approved for letters to be sent if the Sheriff’s department won’t send them.  Linda is talking with Deputy Marquez to see what can be done but it is still the responsibility of a resident to call the Sheriff if they see a violation.

Garage sale signs are still being posted at the entrance.  It was voted on and approved that letters be sent to violators.  Richard provided the address, 11906 White Birch, of the last sign he removed.

Open Forum

Larry asked if anyone knew if the Geronimo Fire Department had stopped having their BBQ dinners.  Richard said that they are now funded by the ESD so probably don’t need the funds anymore.

It was pointed out that a tree at the southwest corner of Poinciana and Silver Maple is blocking the speed limit sign.  Also, there is a rut in the cul de sac on Eucalyptus.  Linda will report these to Bexar County Public Works.

It was brought up that their are residents who seem to be working on other than their personal cars at their houses.  A discussion was held.

Next meeting is September 11, 2018

Meeting adjourned at 8:18 PM
