At the Somersett Owners Association (SOA) December Board of Directors (Board) Meeting, the Board voted to have two open meetings in both January and February, ostensibly because of the large number of items to be addressed. The first of which is scheduled for 5:30 PM on Wednesday, January 13th at The Club at Town Center (TCTC). Given that TCTC is still operating under some COVID-19 restrictions, Owner participation will most likely again be via “Zoom” videoconferencing. The meeting agenda is available via the following link:
Agenda items of particular interest include the following:
- Item 7. Acknowledgement of Action Outside of Meeting – This is a new Agenda category not previously seen. The only item under this heading being: 7.a. “Rescind motion taken at December 17, 200 Board Meeting – Gail Wiley proposal for erosion repairs at 1880 Dove Mountain”. This Agenda item appears to be a result of the new Boards concern over the contractor bid submittal process and whether the Association has been in Compliance with NRS 116.31086 “Solicitation of bids for association project; bids to be opened and read aloud at meeting of executive board”. Also, item is most likely related to Agenda item 6.a “Legal Updates – Legal Opinion on sealed bids”
- Item 6.a. Legal Updates, Preston Homes – Back in August 2020, Preston Homes filed a lawsuit against the SOA over Back Nine Trail access issues seeking both access relief and damages. It had been previously reported that agreements had been reached in a settlement meeting. Perhaps this agenda item addresses the settlement, or perhaps if indeed it has not yet been settled. For those interested, a copy of the Preston Homes lawsuit against the SOA is available via the following link: CV20-01274 Preston Complaint (081820)
- Item 6. Unfinished Business – At the December Board meeting it was revealed that another meeting was scheduled with the Sierra Canyon Association (SCA) to resolve the Firefly Court Trail blockage issue. With no such item included under this Agenda item, it is fair to assume a resolution was not reached. Given that this issue has been ongoing for several months now, it is time to either drop it or issue some sort of disciplinary action against the SCA. The trees continue to grow!
- Item 8.c Formation of audit committee and internal audit of assessments and expenditures across associations – Purportedly a look at sub association assessments and expenditures to determine fairness.
- Item 8.d. Appointments to the AGC – Since Board member assignments to the various SOA Committees was announced at at December Board meeting, could this item represent a shake-up of other members on the Committee?
The Board Meeting Packet for the January 13th meeting was not yet available on the SOA website at the time of this Post. When published, if additional information is provided, an update will be provided.
