General Membership Meeting

The following Minutes will be approved subject to corrections at the next General Membership Meeting.
Next Board of Directors Meeting: Tuesday, November 17 at 6:00 pm
Next General Membership Meeting: Wednesday, December 3 at 6:00 pm
Date & Time:
Pursuant to Section 7.0 of the POA Bylaws, a General Membership meeting of the Board of Directors was held Wednesday, October 7, at 6:00 PM at the Property Owners Association Activity Center.
Officers and Quorum:
The President, Ken Jeffries, opened the meeting at 6:00 PM and the Secretary, Brian Biggs, took Minutes. The following additional Board Members were present: Dave Paulin, Don Grad, Mary Kloeppel, Gracelyn Palmer, Don McGlamery, and Stephen Gonzalez (arrived during the meeting). Bob Heise was not present.
Brian Biggs made a Motion to accept the December 3, 2014 General Membership Meeting Minutes without reading them. The Motion was seconded by Gracelyn Palmer and passed unanimously.
Don McGlamery informed the membership that the POA will likely end the year with a surplus due to a higher than anticipated number of resales and conservative spending practices.
Don Grad reported nominations for the two open Director positions: Gracelyn Palmer and Mary Kloeppel. Mr. Grad asked if there were any further nominations from those in attendance. None were offered. The nominations were closed.
Guest Speaker and Town Hall – Tom Thurman: County Supervisor Tom Thurman was in attendance along with several representatives from various county offices including: Joe Huot, Verl Cook, Byron Jaspers, Doug Federico (County Roads), Steve Mauk (Development Services), Darlene Pakard (Central Yavapai Fire District), and Marlene Summers (Assistant to Tom Thurman). Additionally, State Representatives Karen Fann and Noel Campbell were present. (Mr. Campbell left just after the meeting started.)
Code Enforcement: Mr. Mauk noted that the county is the size of New Jersey, with only five code enforcement employees. Consequently, the county relies on private citizens to inform the county when there are potential concerns. Regarding the annexation and the permitting process for the proposed condos, the county has no jurisdiction per state law.
Roads: Doug Federico presented a map of the Country Club showing the ongoing work and cost to chip-seal the local roads. The main loop has already been completed, along with the southeast portion of PCC. The eastern portion is currently being worked on. The manufactured homes area will be completed in Spring 2016. The northwest side will be completed in Summer 2016. Chip-seal generally lasts 7-10 years. There is a pot hole on Ironwood that will be repaired in the coming week. Road maintenance is paid for through license taxes, an 18 cents/gallon gas tax, and a half cent sales tax. About $300K has been spent on PCC roads in this past couple of years. The county has been using inmates/probationers to cut brush along the highways.
Old Black Canyon: Various people discussed the dirt portion of Old Black Canyon between PCC and Stone Ridge. The first mile (starting from PCC) is owned by the State of Arizona (trust land). The second mile is owned by Prescott Valley. The county does not maintain this road. Occasionally the Town of Prescott Valley will grade it. There are no known plans to pave this portion of Old Black Canyon in the near future. There was a proposed alternate route south of PCC connecting to Bradshaw Mountain, but this is not on the table now (until future development occurs).
Budget: Tom Thurman noted that while CYFD and Yavapai College increased their property tax rates, the county maintained the current tax rate. The jail is back off of the table, since the additional tax was voted down. The county has hired a consulted to see how to streamline operations at the jail. There are about 550 people in the jail with 20-30 being misdemeanor cases.
Condos: Various people discussed the status of the condos. The developer has reduced the proposed number of units from 110 to 75. A traffic study was submitted to Prescott Valley and recently given to the county. The county cannot deny use of county roads, since they are a public resource. However, the county can make suggestions and request alternatives. Manzanita is recording about 3,000 cars per day. The traffic study indicated an additional 800 cars per day if/when the condos are built out. One of the county road personnel indicated that 8,000-10,000 cars per day would be approaching capacity for a two-lane road (such as Manzanita). A meeting participant noted that Richard Parker of Prescott Valley suggested (and might require) that the developer hold another community meeting as part of the review process for the Town. A water study will also be required, but has not yet been completed.
Statewide Issues: State Representative Karen Fann noted that the:
Budget is still tight for Arizona. There is no surplus, because the buildings are still mortgaged and the state is paying interest on that debt. Out of the $32 billion that enters the state, $23B is pass-through money from the federal government for education, Medicare, highways, etc.. The remaining 9.1B comes from inside Arizona. Of that, 7.2B is mandated spending. The remaining $2B can be allocated through the legislative process, so there is little room to spread the money around.
Education Lawsuit is predicated on a disagreement between the historic baseline funding that was in effect at the time that Proposition 301 was passed and the increased funding that was added during the boom years. The legislature argues that the mandated cost of living increase should be measured from the baseline. The educators argue that it should be measured from the increased funding years. The legislature has already paid the amount based on the baseline ($74M). The amount based on the boom years would be $5B or 2.5 times the budget that the legislature is allowed to allocate.
Pension Liability will be a proposition on the ballot, because the courts have decided that the legislature cannot modify the terms since it would violate the Arizona constitution.
State Trust Land may be sold to raise additional funds for schools. This would generate money from the sale and would generate continuing property taxes. Currently, only about 18% of Arizona land is privately held and subject to property taxes.
Don McGlamery made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 7:20pm. The motion was seconded by Brian Biggs and the meeting was adjourned until the General Membership Meeting on December 2, 2015 (Elections).
Brian Biggs, Secretary
