KRCA Homeowners
Board of Directors Meeting
March 20, 2013
7:00 PM Kilauea Neighborhood Center

Kalihiwai Ridge Homeowners can find official minutes to KRCA meetings by setting up their own account log in at certifiedhawaii.com. They can assist you in getting your 7 digit owner number.  After you have that you will then need to set up a user name and password.  You can also set up having the Agenda to these meetings sent to you by email the day before they are held.

My Impressions

At the annual meeting Parker Croft honored the community and KRCA board service of the late Earl Simpson who was the head of our Dam Committee.  Parker then reviewed some of the points of the settled lawsuit with our water use easement holders.  A collaborative relationship has developed with them and the DLNR who are an excellent resource for us with expertise helpful regarding our understanding of the encouraging condition of our dam.  The low level seepage studies have shown with a full lake there is no significant change from when it is at a low level.

Dues for the 2013 year will be $624.04 due on April 1st in one payment. The lake lot reserve funds will be used to pay our part of the environmental/dam studies. The recommendations from the DLNR for dam modification or removal will then be reflected in the 2014 budget to be voted on at the next annual meeting. The election of three board members going uncontested were Skylar Brown, John Donatoni, and Tom Huffman. A point of order was brought up by Jim Bray and was discussed by our legal council present who basically restated that the board has a duty to maintain the common property of KRCA which is Lake Lot 3.
