.

Last Monday’s (8/7/23), Work Session Meeting started at 10:00 a.m. and adjourned to Executive Session at approximately 10:57 a.m.

Ranch Manager Judy Lapora and CC&R Committee Chair, Stephanie Proffitt participated.

.

COUPLE OF HIGHLIGHTS:

.

*CC&R Committee Chair, Stephanie Proffitt provided her report regarding CC&R Procedures and modifications. There was a lengthy discussion regarding Association members not filing CC&R complaints out of fear of retaliation.

Additionally, Ms. Proffitt discussed an Excerpt from the 2023 Revised CC&R Handbook. The Excerpt was not included in the Reading Packet.

.

EXCERPT: “COMMITTEE FILED COMPLAINT PROCEDURE

Mission:

.

Our primary objective is to investigate complaints generated by Ranch residents. In some cases, due to the nature of the problem it may be necessary to initiate a complaint from WITHIN the committee. Committee generated complaints will be kept to a minimum.

.

*Maximum of 4 committee complaints allowed per year, any additional ones would need HOA BOD approval before proceeding.

.

*Any member may write up a complaint form, make a copy for each CC&R committee member and distribute.

.

*EVERY committee member must physically go view the property.

.

*At the next scheduled CC&R committee meeting a vote by show of hands to be taken. In order to proceed it must be unanimous.

.

*if the vote is to proceed then the complaint form is submitted as usual to ADMIN and will go through the normal process.”

.

Association members need to keep a close eye on the CC&R Committee’s activities.

.

The CC&R Committee’s actions have been the subject of several stories on Ranch Matters (RM) involving their unprofessional conduct and total disregard for homeowners privacy.

.

As previously reported, the CC&R Review Committee, May 2023 Minutes, talks about issuing Badges to the CC&R Committee members while conducting investigations.

.

The CC&R Procedures/Revisions discussion was tabled and will be most likely approved at their next Regular Board Meeting.

.

As an aside, after the meeting, RM asked VP Erdekian whether Admin has a record of complainants being threatened or any evidence supporting retaliation. He stated “NO.”

.

*Former Ranch Board Director and current CC&R Committee Member Mark Schneider submitted his CC&R renewal application-unanimously approved.

Mark Schneider has been the subject of multiple reports on RM, that included in part, the filing of “FALSE/UNFOUNDED” complaints with a state agency that contained a “Hit List” targeting Association homeowners.
