News From IronOaks at Sun Lakes

President’s message

David Erwin, President IronOaks HOA

Thank you for attending our monthly Board of Directors meeting. If this is your first one, welcome. Your interest and attendance is appreciated!

Believe it or not, it’s time we started the budget process. Trish and Brian will be working with the Finance Committee to establish the framework and basis for the 2017 budget. A Board Workshop has been scheduled for September 21.

As discussed in our last meeting, the Board has set up two Executive Committees for reviewing the status and oversight of the transition. There are three Board members on each and initially meet every two weeks. One is concentrating on reviewing the accounting processes, changes, fee structures, onsite staffing and related issues. The other is reviewing how we communicate between the Executive Directors and the management companies and assuring that our expectations and policies are understood and maintained.

Starting with the September Board Meeting, there will be committee reports as a regular part of the agenda. I am hopeful that this will provide more information on the issues that are being addressed by your fellow homeowners.

We are nearing the completion of the Oakwood restaurant project so it’s time to review and update our project priority list. One important addition is the status of Poolside. Let me stress one point; under no circumstances would this Board consider using Poolside as an office building. We will be looking at our options, conferring with Trish and Brian, and then schedule a workshop for this purpose.

Thank you.
