Q: Please have the treasurer, Donna Greathouse, explain the two line items “Board of Trustees $150″(Assessment) and “Repairs – WRA Buildings $12,000”?
A: The $12000 is projected for roof repairs on the Chalet and office. If this proves to not be enough we will at least set aside this much to combine with funds from the next year. Our goal is to not have to ask the members for a special assessment for what should be paid out of operating revenue. The primary purpose of the assessment revenue is to care for the assets of the association.
The Board of Trustees line was added to account for expenses specific to Board administration, such as the recurring need to replace or re-key to office door lock. Now that we have that key-less entry that cost should be minimal but we did make that expense in the current fiscal year. Another item that most likely should go in there is the cost of trustee manuals. It isn’t significant in itself but we are trying to have detail where it can be useful in determining ways to control costs and be accountable for expenditures.
