GaryL

Ray Brooks - Director
01:03:04

Jon Pate
01:06:35
yes! people are getting priced out of Clearwood
Walter White - Treasurer
01:06:48
I helped write the change in the Bylaws that require a CPA associated with anyone involved with our finances. The membership passed the change.

Thanks for clarifying
Andrea Hall
01:14:32
I understand that you might feel like defending yourself when getting attacked, but we really did have a couple of albeit small increases.
Andrea Hall
01:14:45
Anyway, thanks for the info. We have to go now.
R.Paige - General Manager

GaryL

Kelly Cunningham
01:22:51
I have been here since 1994 and this is the best board and management since I have been here. Thanks to you all for having Clearwood's best interest at heart! Signing off.
William Willmott
01:23:08
Do you get any interest for the money in the bank
William Willmott
01:24:24
It also looks bad, when you raise money then leave
William Willmott
01:26:27
OK :)

Thank you Malinda, when we bought our house in 2018 you had the same passion for getting our things in order as you do now
William Willmott
01:27:28

iPhone
01:30:33
Jackie and Janelle are freaking amazing! The maintenance crew kicks butt as well!
Janelle
01:30:59
Thank you! That's really good to hear.
Mary Ellen Young
01:31:27
I'm still just listening :)
Jon Pate
01:31:43
with people not able to afford the raise, they don’t get to vote in the future, which in turn makes attendance low and people’s voices not heard
teri lawless she/her
01:32:13
Great question Bridgett!
Cara Farmer
01:33:16
Because you get beat up and not an easy job for a volunteer.
teri lawless she/her
01:33:30
True story, Cara

01:34:00
This board does a great job communicating with each other and supporting the staff! It is a far cry from past boards when people just screamed at each other.
R.Paige - General Manager
01:34:41
Yes, iPhone they are wonderful to work with.
GaryL
01:36:00
how come malinda is the only board member that speaks on a given topic?
Lot 07-102
01:36:03
I remember those contentious meeting when we moved in, and it really does discourage participation, it is a shame that a few uninformed people drive the discussion
Walter White - Treasurer
01:38:38
Thanks Malinda.
iPhone
01:38:40
Thanks to Mitch and Jennifer for doing a great job!
teri lawless she/her
01:38:47
Malinda, will you continue to be neighbor once you're off the BOD?
Lot 07-102
01:39:10
It is up to us to make sure the momentum continues
Bridgett Hall
01:45:13
I’m just trying to make sure if we agree to these charges and dues are the projects actually going to get done
Bridgett Hall
01:46:04
And on the note of the memberships legal actions do you have that information posted to hold the board accountable for maintaining these properties
DavidJEK
01:47:23
Just want to know what will happen when I can no longer afford to pay?
DavidJEK
01:49:10
What is being done to cut services that aren't used that much.
teri lawless she/her
01:50:08
Walter, hover over the bottom of your screen and you will see "Reactions"...….that is how you raise your hand
DavidJEK
01:50:10
Any more raises in dues and I will have to move.
R.Paige - General Manager
01:50:47
Bridgett it is covered in the HOA act RCW 64.38 and the Washington Nonprofit corporation Act which is RCW
DavidJEK
01:50:58
What is the company we hired doing?
R.Paige - General Manager
01:51:43
RCW 24.03 for the nonprofit act
DavidJEK
01:54:18
I see here no matter what the members want they have no voice
Lot 07-102
01:55:17
I totally agree Walter
DavidJEK
01:55:47
What is being done to see what can be cut or reduced
Cara Farmer
01:55:58
Well said Walter
DavidJEK
01:56:24
I have no mic
Phillip Holzinger
01:56:43
Make Clearwood Great Again!
Sydney
01:57:05
@philip 🤣🤣
Walter White - Treasurer
01:57:25
😁
Lot 07-102
01:57:34
Clearwood will be the best she has ever been, she is going to be huge! lmao
DavidJEK
01:57:35
Why do we have to have the candle lights on at the gates in the day?
Lot 07-102
01:58:09
I imagine those LED light bulbs are very cheap to run, a drop in the bucket
DavidJEK
01:58:30
But every drop counts
DavidJEK
01:59:04
Do we need a new office building?
teri lawless she/her
01:59:33
Do you have to be in good standing for your vote to count on the 2022 budget $1,838.74?
iPhone
01:59:48
Maybe you could volunteer to help clean the bathrooms, mow the lawn, clean up after vandalism’s
teri lawless she/her
01:59:49
Per Lot budget?
Lot 07-102
01:59:50
Each member owns much more than our home, we all have a responsibility to maintain our roads, water system, parks, trails, lake access, etc. We all got a great deal even with the extra $70~ monthly due increase
R.Paige - General Manager
02:00:00
No Teri everyone can vote on the budget.
Cara Farmer
02:00:26
Agree!
teri lawless she/her
02:00:27
Awesome, thank you Rachael!
teri lawless she/her
02:00:38
(did I spell it right?)
R.Paige - General Manager
02:01:03
No but that's ok :) you are welcome!
Lot 07-102
02:01:17
@ iPhone, the community went the volunteer path previously and it led us to where we are right now, too much work to go around
DavidJEK
02:01:25
What happens when I can't pay? I am retired and have insurances to pay gas, food and clothing, and if the roof needs replacing where do I get the money?
Bridgett Hall
02:02:57
How do the percentages work if we do a couple months paid and then final payment 4-6 months in?
teri lawless she/her
02:03:06
LOL @ Mitch saves us $$$ LOL
Jon Pate
02:03:48
@lot 07-102: could there be someone volunteer wise appointed for their own section to be up keep?
Lot 07-102
02:04:15
Idk Jon I am just a member but I am happy to pay the HOA for that so I can enjoy my comfortable life
Walter White - Treasurer
02:04:16
Good night everyone. Thanks to all the amazing Members and Residents showing up for this meeting.

Bridgett Hall
02:07:10
On the meeting notices can we do more like when I first bought we had a post card and a text can we step up the communication on the meetings
Bridgett Hall
02:07:45
Multiple reminders help me
Cara Farmer
02:08:37
I like the text and emails communications as well!
Jon Pate
02:08:41
just a thought: could there be a program/incentive like a percentage off of a person volunteers for an amount of time/ work
teri lawless she/her
02:08:54
how can I get the text?
DavidJEK
02:10:22
YaY we hire a company and now we have to pay more and need people to work for free?????? In the military we did
Janelle
