AUDIENCE CONCERNS/SPECIAL REPORTS:

 

With concern about the ongoing low interest on C.D.'s, Mr. Keith Baughman of Baughman Financial Services, Inc. attended this meeting to advise the Board how to make better interest for the Villages assets. The Board made it clear that they did not want to risk any current assets (example - C.D.'s, annuities, etc.); they want guaranteed interest only. Mr. Baughman will check on minimum time an asset must be tied up and present more information soon.

 

Mrs. Shawna Rogy attended the meeting to ask the Board if there is any possibility to vacating the ally behind her house. She would like to have at least a "10' x 150'" portion of the current ally (between 6600 block of Jones Rd. &

6600 block of Lamoine Ave.).

 

The Attorney stated the following:

 

After completion of receiving this information, a hearing would be held after a 15-day notice to allow anyone to speak at the hearing. The Board would consider the comments made concerning this ally.

 

Mr. Daniel Massey also would like a part of the easement (between 6700 block of Jones Rd. & 6700 block of Lamoine Ave.) to access his driveway which is currently located in the easement. He was told to follow the same format: present a legal description of the requested ground and get an appraisal of the easement also.
