Minutes of TRLA Annual Board Meeting May 27,2006
2006 ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING
The 2006 annual meeting of TRLA was called to order at 11:00 on May 27th by Richard Hawkins, President at the lower ranch house.
Board members present were: Howard Williams, Vice President, David Skinner,
Treasurer, and Linda Pedersen, acting secretary.
President Hawkins asked for a moment of silence in memory of Tom Allen, a longtime Timberlake landowner, before the beginning of the meeting. Mr. Allen passed away early in the morning.
Secretarys Report: Linda Pedersen read the highlights of the 2005 annual meeting. Landowners who wish to have a copy of the 40 page transcript were asked to notify her and she would make sure they received a copy. The minutes were approved.
Treasurers Report: David Skinner presented the financial report. Copies were made available for the landowners.
As of April 30, 2006:
Fixed assets of $23,685 were spent for a lawn tractor, pickup truck and a snow removal blade for pickup. The July newsletter will have a breakout of all outflows for what was spent for entire fiscal year.
Proposed budget for FY06-07 was presented per bylaws. There was discussion on amount of money to be spent on roads. The proposed budget shows significant increase, but there has been no proposal to raise dues. The new board will have to evaluate the budget line by line and make decisions. In December there will be a review of budget and necessary revisions will be made for the remainder of the year. There are no proposals to raise the dues.
A landowner questioned as to why TRLA did not purchase the copier instead of leasing it. It was explained that it is cheaper to lease a copier and own it at the end of the lease as the interest rate was very low and the maintenance costs are included in the lease. Mr. Williams has it in his home for security and environmental reasons. TRLA gets 2000 copies free each month along with toner.
Treasurers report was approved.

There was landowner input on varying subjects such as manufactured homes, RV pads and CC&Rs. It is the wish of the board to have the CC&Rs redone and that only one set will cover Cloh Chin Toh, Timberlake South, Cibola 1& 2, and McKinley 1-10.
What can we do over what the county is doing:
1) We can have a special assessment which will require increased taxes.
It does not necessarily mean they will spend the money on Timberlake road.
