    Chantilly Highlands Homeowners Association Board of Directors Meeting Thursday, September 2, 2004

    Submitted by: Wendy Osborn August minutes were not available for approval.

    Minutes are tentative and will be reviewed and approved at the upcoming Board of Directors meeting. Board Attendees: Jim Ceh, Dan Feer, Mark Hassinger, Wendy Osborn and Chris Tacinelli Absent Board members: Jeff Boehlert, Mary Kerr and Jerry Thatcher Treasurer’s report: The budget is on track and current expenses are under budget. We will have capital ex-

    penditures by the end of the year for the parking lot repaving and tennis court resurfacing. Land Management: The Stone Heather entrance sign and playground playhouse are in need of repair and

    will be addressed. Community activities: A volunteer has come forward and is interested in coordinating social events. There

    will be a fall planning meeting for volunteers to look at the social calendar and begin planning events. A volunteer recognition party is being planned for January.

    ACC: The ACC is working on a new exterior application request form and will finalize after board review and feedback.

    Highlander: Effective October, the newsletter deadline will be the 12th of each month. There also will be new business rates for non-resident ads.

    The newsletter and database manager are working on the resident directory that will be published in October. Old business: The board continues to review by-laws and covenant revisions. It was reported incorrectly in

    the August newsletter that signs are permitted in the VDOT public of way. The right of way is the VDOT state right of way and signs are not permitted.

    New Business: Open contract positions for webmaster, bookkeeper and resale were reviewed and will be voted on.

    The Morgan Stanley money market was closed and consolidated into a checking account. We will be insuring that all other funds are secured and FDIC insured. There has been lack of progress in meeting a settlement agreement with a resident in violation of multiple

    covenant infractions. A letter by the CHHA attorney has notified the owner that he is in material breach of the settlement agreement.

    Chris Tacinelli made a motion to adjourn the meeting and Jim Ceh seconded. Meeting adjourned at 9:22pm.

    Read This Before You Drive Off to DMV

    If you’re not aware, the DMV has a utility available online to find out how long you might have to wait by checking the agency's web site,, before your visit. This tech- nology links with the "take-a-number" system in state- wide DMV offices to provide you with approximate wait-times on the web for each location. Customers can find an office location, cur- rent wait-times at that location and wait-times at other nearby offices. Wait-time is calculated based on the number of customers in the lobby, transaction types, and the average time to complete those transactions. You can also find out what documents you will need to bring with you to DMV. Take some time to explore the transactions available via the Internet. DMV offers 19 online transactions, includ- ing driver's license and vehicle registration renewals. Don't go to DMV unless you have to!
