The Budget Audit Committee (BAC) met yesterday (1/25/23) in the Juniper Room for an all day meeting that included not only the Ranch Department Heads, but also unexpectedly the Crooked River Ranch (CRR) Board of Directors (BOD).
The following Directors in attendance: President Kari Vickery, VP Ara Erdekian, Secretary Mike Dries, Sheryl Jones, Richard Beveridge, Sarah Woolverton and Treasurer Randy Peterson via zoom.
Ranch Manager Judy Lapora attended and participated.
The meeting was called to Order at 10:00 AM by resident Herb Parker
Initially Herb Parker stated the meeting was a “Combined BAC/BOD Meeting” and Association members in attendance were only allowed to “observe.”
Parker enacted the following observer rules/restrictions:
*No questions allowed from observers-Association members
*No copies of the Draft Operating Budget or CRP available for observers to follow
*No recordings for Association members
*No zoom for the Association members
However, zoom was available for Treasurer Randy Peterson only.
Department Heads were scheduled throughout the day to present their operating budgets for the BAC and BOD.
Ranch Golf Pro Randy Ballard was the first to present his budget. He walked the BAC/BOD through his individual line items explaining various increases and in some cases decreases to his budget. According to Ballard there was a “significant change” in his departments salaries and wages-an increase of “9.1%.”
