Initial cost of converting pool to salt water – will pay for itself within 2-3 years and is saving us money in long term.
Bulk Head Cost – voted to spend 6900.00 originally by the time we completed cost was 7900.00

Old Business: Billy Keel –Water Consumption- please treat your water consumption like you are on a water meter. Mary Bryan informed, after research with landscapers, that an irrigation system actually saves more water than sprinklers connected to the hose. Also you should only water for 20-30 minutes between 6am and 9am, late afternoon watering or night will cause mold.

Each homeowner is now allowed 4 numbers per house for gate box. the number is now a 4 digit number and 9 releases the gate when you are called. The homeowners are now alphabetized by last name.
