Open 30: One speaker - talked about the need to get enforcement going again at the gate and stop waiting for the construction to be completed.
Legislative Report: Griffis-Widewater Supervisor Jack Cavalier said the County budget hearings have begun and the budget is slated for a vote on 4/16/19. He expressed regret at the School Board’s decision to send AH elementary school kids to Hampton Oaks next year and reminded us that the end of the 60-day delay on the ATC tax-incentives vote is next month and he is hoping they will stay in place to provide the best opportunity for a build to take hold. Delegate Bob Thomas talked about what’s going on in Richmond including passing tax reform and an increase for teacher salaries. He too supports honoring the tax incentives for the Aquia Town Center.
Director Comments: Thank you to Jack Cavalier and Paul Milde who worked to support keeping AH kids at Moncure, an appreciation for those in attendance at the Board meeting tonight, a report on a good golf meeting about the future of the course, would like a clarification on glass recycling (in this month’s Harbourview), gratitude for how the community responded during the federal worker furlough crisis.
Treasurer’s Report: 55 accounts with the attorney. Cash on hand $3,842,000, 404 lot owners past due.

Board: Nominating Committee, Pool Pump, Goodwill Contract, Shade Structures – CC Pool and bleachers for the Ballfield.
Bank Fraud Review – We had a full risk analysis review with Bank Fraud Protection and will be implementing one of their recommendations for a nominal fee. The review provided that we had limited to no exposure in other areas. We also had them review our audit and they responded with “ Very strong balance sheet with no long-term debt.”
Legal Update – The judge denied our request to recover fees but did ban the plaintiff from any further lawsuits without the express review and permission of a Stafford Court judge. The last pending lawsuit from this plaintiff will be heard on April 15th. The AHPOA has prevailed on all of the cases filed so far from this plaintiff and has spent thousands of dollars defending these lawsuits.
Storm Water Management – The GM attended a County storm-water management meeting that was mostly intended for contractors but there was some information to be gleened on flooding yards and basements that will be shared with residents.
Insurance – All has been updated and renews on April 1st – the start of our fiscal year.
Around the Harbour – Stables up to 13 stalls and summer camps have been scheduled, the Police Chief’s Please Stop Me program went viral and agencies from many states will be implementing his program, the Golf Summit will take place on 3/26 at the Country Club at 6p to discuss how to revive and improve our golf course and income, the office is trying out electronic time sheets, and the GM is sending out notices to residents who have unsightly roof mold and algea.
