2012 Annual Meeting

June 24, 2012

Ramah Chapter House

Pine hill, NM

 

Minutes

 

Board member Kevin Kinzie called the meeting to order at1:30 pm. He opened the meeting by introducing the current board members.  He noted that several members of the board aswell as the QCC had resigned their positions over the past year for variousreasons.  He read an e-mail message fromformer board member Dave Evans regarding some negative treatment Dave and hisfamily had received by residents at Pine Meadows.  This treatment was the reason he gave for resigning from theboard.  Mr. Kinzie noted that at thelast annual meeting a vote was held to move the annual meeting to June to allowout of town owners a better opportunity to visit their properties.  Several owners in attendance from out ofstate had done just that and incorporated the meeting and site visit into theirsummer travel plans.

 

Mr. Kinzie then introduced Jim Armstrong, who has served asboard treasurer for the past term.  Jimshared his thoughts about his time on the board and offered his suggestions tothose serving on the board in future years.

 

Mr. Armstrong then went over the financial report covering2011 and 2012.  The 2011 beginningbalance was shown at $20,298.21 and was added to by assessment revenue in theamount of $15,737.06 in 2011 and $7,616.15 to date in 2012 for a total of$43,651.42.  Over the period covered inthe report there were road expenses in the amount of $33,263.53 andadministrative expenses of $5,730.93 leaving a remaining balance of$4,656.96.  He estimated that anadditional $5,000 would be coming in over the next several months in additionto assessment revenue collected at the meeting.

 

He noted that the assessment letters were sent out in aseries of rounds for the 2012 assessment cycle.  The first round of roughly 300 was sent to owners who werecurrent and on time with their annual assessment payments.  The next round of around 250 was sent toowners that were 1-5 years past due with payments.  The final round of approximately 50 letters was sent to ownersthat were over 6 years past due.  Byoffering to settle with owners and companies with title to Pine Meadowproperties for an amount of 6 years’ worth of dues plus late fees (regardlessof how many years past six years was due), additional revenue that would notlikely have been collected was realized by the association.  Mr. Armstrong excused himself uponconcluding his report to attend to a family medical situation.

 

After a brief discussion among the membership spanning anumber of topics, the floor was opened for nominations for the 2012-2013board.  The following owners werenominated: Nancy Iverson, Bob Smith, Dee Johnson, Mark Vreeland, and AnnHarrell.  In addition, John Carroll andKevin Kranz were nominated to serve on the QCC committee.  All were unanimously elected by vote of themembers.

 

The new board was introduced and took over the meeting.  Incoming board members solicited commentsand suggestions from the owners in attendance.

 

No further business appearing, the meeting was adjourned atapproximately 3:15 p.m.

RUNDOWN ON 2010-2011 MEETING

Posted on February 25, 2011 at 7:13 PM Comments comments (3)

2-20-11 ANNUAL MEETING

BEST WESTERN MOTEL ---- GRANTS,NM.

 PRESIDENT KEVIN KINZIE CALLED THE MEETING TO ORDER ABOUT 1:45 PM. HE OPENED THE MEETING BY INTRODUCING ALL OF THE 2010 OFFICERS. KEVIN KINZIE, JIM ARMSTRONG, JUANITA SMITH , CHAR TOOLE, JOHN CROMWELL & NANCY IVERSON.

NANCY IVERSON GAVE A RUN DOWN OF LAST YEARS ANNUAL MEETING AND THEN GAVE THE TREASURER’S REPORT. THE YEAR STARTED  WITH $36,631.02. EXPENSES WERE: ROADS: $13,513.06 WELL:$343.16 COLLECTION AGENCY (cbf)  $398.34 OFFICE:     $514.19    LIENS:     $675.00     TAX:   $11.00 STORAGE:   $456.00 ANNUAL MEETING:  $729.61     BAD CHECK: $165.00  TRAVEL EXPENSE:  $25.65 FOR A TOTAL EXPENSE OF   $16,831.01.

THE CASH ON HAND IS $19,800.01 FOR THE YEAR OF 2011.

 THERE WAS MUCH DISCUSSION ON SNOW REMOVAL ON THE ROADS.  PEOPLE WHO DO NOT LIVE ON THE RANCH DID NOT WANT THEIR MONEY USED FOR SNOW REMOVAL.  A MOTION WAS MADE THAT THERE WOULD BE NO ASSESSMENT MONEY SPENT ON SNOW REMOVAL ON ANY ROADS.  THIS DID NOT PASS. (WHEN SNOW IS ALOWED TO MELT ON THE GRAVEL THE ROAD TURNS TO MUD AND TRAFFIC PUSHES THE GRAVEL INTO THE MUD.  SOON THERE IS NO GRAVEL LEFT.)  THE MOTION THAT ONLY THE MAIN ROAD SNOW REMOVAL COULD BE PAID FOR WITH POA MONEY WAS MADE AND  APROVED. (DOES THAT MEAN THAT QCC MONEY CAN BE USED FOR SNOW REMOVAL ON THE SIDE ROADS?)

RESULTS: NO POA MONEY CAN BE USED FOR SNOW REMOVAL ON THE SIDE ROADS.

A DISCUSION ON OTHER WAYS TO  GENERATE MONEY FOR THE ROADS: A 15 TO 20 MINUTE REPORT BY JIM ARMSTRONG ABOUT RUNNING CATTLE ON THE RANCH FOR 3 MONTHS IN THE FALL.  HE THOUGHT THAT THE RANCH MIGHT MAKE $10,000.00 THAT WAY BUT DIDN’T KNOW HOW MUCH MONEY WOULD HAVE TO BE SPENT TO PROTECT PEOPLE’S PROPERTY.  THERE WERE SOME PROS & CONS ON THAT. (WHAT ABOUT THE WILD LIFE THAT EAT THE SAME FOOD THAT THE COWS DO?  THERE WILL NOT BE ENOUGH FOOD FOR THEM AFTER RUNING COWS.)  SOME THOUGHT RAISING THE RATES A BIT WOULD HAVE FEWER PROBLEMS. NO DECISION WAS MADE.

A REQUEST FOR A BULLETIN BOARD & A LARGE MAP OF THE RANCH TO BE PUT UP CLOSE TO THE FRONT OF THE RANCH. ( THE MONEY FOR THIS WOULD HAVE TO COME OUT OF THE POA ACCOUNT AS THE QCC MONEY CAN ONLY BE USED FOR ROADS.)

THE 2011 BOARD WILL BE MADE UP WITH KIVEN KINZE, JIM ARMSTRONG, DAVID EVANS & DAVID JONES.   DONALD KRESSAN & KEVIN KRANZ TO HELP THE QCC.( AT LEAST 1 OF THESE PEOPLE HAD NOT PAID THEIR 2011 ASSESSMENTS BY THE 1ST OF MARCH !)

THE MEMBERS VOTED TO HAVE THE NEXT ANNUAL MEETING SOMETIME THE SUMMER OF 2012.  THE DATE, TIME & PLACE IS TO BE DECIDED AT A LATER TIME. 

THE MEETING WAS ADJOURNED.

Winter roads 2009 - 2010

Posted on March 18, 2010 at 4:45 PM Comments comments (0)
Snow has been heavy on the roads this winter.  Started out with 10 inches.  Lots of wind caused drifts up to 5' in some places.  Getting the roads plowed so that the main road was opened to traffic was hard to do.  Kris Higgens was able to rent a big rig from the Tribe and made a pass though opening roads so that the people in Units 3 & 4 were able to get out.  Still, there were lots of people stuck and had to be pulled out.  This started in February and here it is the middle of March and we still have lots of snow.  Where the snow has melted, we have MUD.

BIA Road 122

Posted on September 12, 2009 at 2:05 AM Comments comments (1)

After many years of mud & ruts so deep you couldn't drive a car over it in the rainy or snowy season, the BIA has now chipped sealed about 8 miles of the road!  This takes you right to the enterance to Pine Meadow Ranches...  It made it through the winter with few chuck holes! 

Here it is in 2014 and the road has lots of pot holes!

More Rain

Part of the main road washed out after about 2" of rain. The road had most of the people in Unit 3 & 4 blocked in or out for several hours, until Bob was able to make repairs so that people could get in and out with their cars.  Otherwise, you needed a REAL 4 wheel drive to get in and out.

If it is a year with lots of rain, the fields are alive with flowers!


I bought a pckage of perennial wild flowers and scatered them in my flower garden.  Now I have all kinds of flowers coming up each spring.


One thing to remember - The area is a high deserrt.

Flowers

If you like flowers, try planting iris!  The wildlife do not like to eat them.  Once started, they do not need much water to grow.  I've had a couple of groups  planted in the same spots since 1996 and nothing has bothered them.
