IV. Treasure’s Report

  • Mike Farris, Treasurer, did an overview of the financials and stated the following:
  • Cottage Collection: In good condition, and income is up due to the assumption based on collections on settlements of approximately $6,000. The expenses are less for the year than expected, in relationship to ground and maintenance repairs.
  • Reserve review: Water up $3,000 over budget, and collection expenses were up.  In conclusion, the Cottage Collection budget has $11,500 excess monies and in good shape for the year to date.
  • Master Collection: In good condition with revenue up approximately $2,000, excess revenue of $1,700. The ground and maintenance is $1,200 less than expected, with the exception of plant replacement of $2,900 over budget. The budget is year to date of $1,200 excess, with low irrigation repairs. The management fees are $1,700 over budget, office supplies over budget, due to the assumption of additional Newsletter mailers sent, for an example.
  • Water usage was discussed, as $10,000 was spent extra in the Master Collection. **Lynda DuLong will investigate further with the water company and do a comparison to last year’s usage. Lynda reminded everyone, if there is a water leak to notify immediately TMG Maintenance.
  • Operating expenses higher by $8,000, but given revenue, with over budget of $4,800 this year to date.
  • **There was a consensus to explore “Native Planting” to embrace possible cost saving options to control water usage expenses and also look at adjusting sprinkler’s heads/water times and capping off sprinklers that are producing excessive watering. **Lynda DuLong will schedule Tualatin Valley Water services to come and meet with us to explore our options.
