2/19/2018 (Monday Morning Memo as official means of presenting Board notices to homeowners.)

This Resolution of the Board of Directors of Esperanza Estates is made this 19th day of February, 2018 for the purpose of establishing the Monday Morning Memo as a means of giving official notice of Board action or the calling of a special Board meeting, and is based on the following:

Whereas it is necessary from time to time to give official notice of an action of the Board or of a special Board meeting, and

Whereas the Bylaws of the Board provide for giving such a notice in “the Newsletter”, but do not define or name any such newsletter and no newsletter has ever been identified, and

Whereas for several years a newsletter known as the Monday Morning Memo has been in use and circulation within Esperanza Estates and is widely read and available to all residents either by email delivery or posting on the Ramada bulletin board and is published each week, and

Whereas the Board deems said Monday Morning Memo to be a reliable source for the publication of any notice needed to be given to residents,

Now, Therefore it is hereby enacted by the Board:

1. The Monday Morning Memo is hereby given the status of an official means of giving notices of Board action or the calling of special Board meetings which it is agreeable to publish.

2. The Board may continue to give official notices by any other means deemed necessary or appropriate and this Resolution is not intended to specify the Monday Morning Memo as the sole method of giving any required notice.

3. It is understood the Monday Morning Memo remains a private publication and not under Board control.

10/21/13 (Bee Policy)

"Whereas the Board of Directors of Green Valley Esperanza Estates HOA ('the Board') has determined that any infestation of bees, hornets, wasps, and other stinging insects presents a danger and a material hazard to the residents, guests, and other occupants found within the subdivision, and therefore constitutes a nuisance, and

Whereas the Board has a duty under the CC&&Rs to take all appropriate action to abate any such hazard and nuisance for the protection of its residents and the general public, and

Whereas the Board desires to adopt a uniform policy to deal with the responsibility for such abatement, Now, therefore, it is RESOLVED as follows:

  1. Any infestation of bees, hornets, wasps, or other stinging insects found anywhere within the legal boundaries of Esperanza Estates are hereby declared to be a public nuisance and subject to the abatement provisions of this Resolution.

  2. Financial responsibility for the abatement of the nuisance shall rest with the property owner where the infestation shall be found, regardless of where on the property it may be, and particularly including the exterior of a patio wall.

  3. When an infestation is discovered and reported to a member of the Board, the Board member shall immediately notify the Board President. The President, or his delegate shall immediately post as close to the infestation as possible a sign reading CAUTION: Bees, or such other language as the Board may determine, to alert passersby to the hazard. The Board shall keep on hand a reasonable number of such signs in a commonly accessible location as determined by the Board. The property owner, or his designee, shall be given oral and/or written notice as soon as practicable to abate the nuisance, or to make arrangements satisfactory to the Board for its abatement, within 48 hours. Failure of the owner to comply will result in the HOA taking necessary action at the expense of the owner. Any such expense shall be considered a Reimbursement Assessment as provided in Section 5.3.5 of the CC&R's of Green Valley Esperanza Estates and collected as therein provided.

  4. The Board shall have authority to enter onto any lot for the abatement of any infestation which the owner refuses to abate as herein provided, or where the owner cannot be located within a reasonable time, under the authority provided by Sections 12.4 and of the CC&Rs of Green Valley Esperanza Estates."

2/20/12 ('Exterior wall' definition)

"The EEHOA Board of Directors is authorized to add a discretionary surcharge of up to 50 percent of the cost of corrective work, to be billed to the homeowner, if after giving notice to a homeowner and allowing a reasonable time for completion of the work, the homeowner has not taken action to bring their yard or tree[s] into compliance with the CC&Rs."
