Here is the update on developments since my last note of June 15.
There is nothing to report at this time regarding the Hurricane Michael insurance claim. The main issue to report in this note is the plans for the upcoming August meeting.
We originally planned Committee Meetings, a Board Meeting, and the Homeowners' Meeting on August 20th, 21st, and 22nd. We now have to consider issues with Covid-19 and the need for social distancing for the benefit of all concerned.
The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) Emergency Management Order 2020-04 has granted community associations wide-ranging powers in dealing with Covid-19 issues, including changes to conducting, canceling, and rescheduling association meetings. Please note the following schedule changes:
The August 20th Committee Meetings have been canceled. The individual committee chairpersons have been notified that they should be prepared to bring the business of their respective committees to the August 21st Board meeting.
The August 21st Board Meeting will take place, as scheduled, on Friday, August 21. (More info below.)
The August 22nd Homeowner’s Meeting has been canceled. It may be rescheduled at a later date, or not, depending on the decision of the Board of Directors.
The Board Meeting will be on August 21st at 9AM, upstairs, in the Dinich Building. Since the terms of six current Board Members expire at the August meeting, the Board of Directors' election will be addressed at the end of this meeting.
In order to be certain that social distancing can be maintained for everyone at this meeting, in-person attendance for this Board meeting will be absolutely limited to Board members, Moonspinner Management personnel, and persons running for Board membership. All other interested Homeowners will need to join the meeting by phone.
There will be two elections to be decided. There are 4 persons running for the 3 open At-large Board positions, and there are 2 persons running for the open Building B representative.
Ballots will be mailed to homeowners well in advance and will be due to be delivered to the Moonspinner General Manager by no later than 5:00 PM local time on Thursday, August 20, 2020. Ballots will be counted on Friday morning, and results will be announced at the end of the Board meeting. The adjournment of this meeting will conclude the business of the 2019-2020 Moonspinner Board of Directors.
After a short break, the 2020-2021 Board of Directors will meet in their Organizational meeting to elect officers, select committee chairpersons, set meeting dates, and address any needed topics for the upcoming Board year.
These are the meeting plans as they exist today. We will furnish additional information when/if necessary.
I encourage everyone to stay safe, wear your masks, and abide by social distancing, for your benefit as well as those around you.
