Treasurer report read and approved

Open Forum:

Stephen Tzhone from EPA gave an update on the River City Plating testing. Samples were taken again mid-December. Preliminary data shows localized contamination detected in compound in additional wells. They checked if there was a concern and validated there was only shallow ground contamination and are validating the contaminant isn’t deeper. The contaminant has also been found regionally but also at very low levels.

Gabe is getting in touch with Amherst and Westcreek to set up another meeting with the representatives from the agencies working on the project to give another update to include those subdivisions.

Some property owners present at the meeting commented that when the water had been cut off in recent months that the water was brown when it was turned back on. This is not in connection with the River City project. Gabe said he would call Southwest and suggested the homeowners do the same if it was to happen again.

Property owners present at the meeting brought up complaints regarding the 18 wheelers that are parking in their streets and into their driveways, a mechanic shop that is selling cars, etc. The board members explained that these issues, as well as others (the hair shop on Tallowood, the property on Poinciana with the brick piles being dumped) have been addressed and the property owners have been sent letters by the POA but it is also up to the homeowners to take it upon themselves and call either county compliance or the Bexar County Sheriff, depending on the issue. The POA can only police to a certain extent what are in the deed restrictions.

Entryway- Gabe will check on status of the extended curb that was brought up in previous meetings. The curb seems to be in the way of turning into the subdivision, making it difficult to turn in without hitting the curb.

New Business:

Gabe has set up a new Yahoo account for homeowners.

Election of Officers: Gabe sent out notification on email, the website and Nextdoor to encourage others in the neighborhood to sign up for the posts on the board, however, no one other than current or past board members were nominated. The final election results for posts were:

President – Gabe Lara

Vice President – Albert Siller

Sargent at Arms – Richard Garza

The positions of Secretary and Treasurer were not filled and remain open.
