The Documents Committee met on Sunday, September 22 to discuss ongoing revisions to the Association Agreement. Jeff Miller had sent out a preliminary draft to several homeowners, including Dodson, Hernke, Littlefield, Eversole, Cullman, Leyde, Kellogg, and Cameron in order to solicit feedback. The majority of them had favorable comments. In addition, several of them would be willing to contribute to the contingency financing, if it becomes necessary.
Proposed by: Andy Karmy
Seconded by: Mark Owen
Motion made: To make a preliminary draft available for all homeowners at the upcoming picnic on September 29, 2019.
Annual Homeowners Meeting and Picnic. The original date set for October 6th did not work for Eric Eversole, so September 29th was selected. Janet Gundlach and Tammy Nason could use help in preparation.
Surface Water Management. Jeff Miller will be organizing a committee to start a communication with King County, including King County Council #7, Pete Von Reichbauer, Gordy Gibler (Fall City Airport HOA), King County Council #3, Cathy Lambert, and WPA. Rex MacLean volunteered to help on the committee.
Association Agreement: John Tomlinson displayed a Power Point to the Board which he intends to present to the Homeowners at the Picnic. Mike Werner passed out his suggestion that an additional Membership classification be added to the agreement:
2.5 Associate Membership. Any person who holds an ancillary interest in the airport remaining viable in the future are eligible for Associate Membership. Associate members have no voting rights, but would be eligible for member discounts on hangar or tie down-down rental fees, fuel discounts and airport operation fees. Associate membership would require a one-time initiation fee of ten thousand dollars ($10,000), transferrable to a succeeding associate member. One tie-down or hangar rental would be allowed per associate membership.
After discussing the proposal at length, the Board decided not to add the Associate Membership at this time, wanting to keep the Association Agreement simple. The general consensus of the Board was that the complexity of the proposal can be brought up further at a later and more appropriate time.
