From the President
- August 29, 2016
Greetings River Piners. The Board meeting last week included some routine business and a spirited discussion of governing procedures. We also reviewed topics to discuss at next month’s Association meeting. At that meeting, we’ll have the usual reports on committee activities and long-term projects, as well as some discussion of a few unusual topics: the property boundary of River Pines, for one, and the discovery of a modest assortment of small errors in the calculation of co-owner per cent of ownership, for another.
The terms of three Board members are ending, and at the Association meeting we’ll have elections to fill those positions. One of the three Board members reaching the end of her term is Jan Hall, who has served six continuous years on the Board and is thus not allowed to run for re-election at this time; those six years are in addition to a previous six years on the Board, with three as President. I’d like to join you in thanking Jan for her considerable work for and contributions to River Pines.

Greetings River Piners. At the July Board meeting last week, the report on the condition of our roads was received. This is a fairly detailed analysis, conducted in June by a consulting company, and yielding information on the road construction and advice on maintenance and replacement. We had already had a road replacement plan in place, and now have technical information to back up the plan, and to revise its timetable. The Architectural Control Committee will prepare a recommendation. Maintenance work for the summer is proceeding. Painting and concrete replacement are completed for the year. One of our two contractors for porch staining is finished, and the other is underway.

Living in River Pines
“Just wanted to share our thoughts about the professional job that Pasko & Tony and their crew from American Euro Painting, Inc. are doing. They spent several days scraping the entire units, caulking, and replacing wood before ever starting to paint. They are methodical, neat,and very hard workers taking great pride in their workmanship. The quality of paint being used gives a rich appearance, especially the front door and garage. Read more from neighbors
