Announcements and Recognition of New Members: There were no announcements, or new members attending the meeting.

Acceptance of previous minutes: There were no corrections to the May meeting minutes, which are considered approved.

Treasurerís Report: Joan Moreaux gave the treasurerís report, which was largely unremarkable. Natural gas is showing some ups and downs, but due to the recent weather, is believed to be trending downward. We are slightly over budget for the year, but not so of consequence.

Committee Reports:

Architectural: No report.

Capital Projects: No report.

Common Areas: No report.

GVC: Dean Hess, the GVC alternate, explained what the Council has been doing.

Neighborhood Relations: Boyd Morse reported that peace and harmony is prevailing in Esperanza Estates. He also reported on a study he has been doing on the garbage truck situation, which he is approaching as an educational presentation to aid the residents in making their own decisions as to which company to use.

Recreational Facilities: Tom Cooke reported that roof work has been completed on the buildings in the pool enclosure and at the tennis court. It has been 5 years since these roofs were done, and they were due for maintenance.

Hospitality: No report from a committee member, but it is known there will be a 4th of July party at the Ramada sponsored by the Hospitality Committee.

Neighborhood Watch: Mary Beth Wallace reported that updating is being done on Neighborhood Watch records.

Enhancement Team: Barb McCalpin reported the Team has received the sound study for the Ramada, but has no plans to do anything with it until the fall months. She also reported the Garden Club has purchased the pots for the entrance monuments and Sunset Ramada arch and pool gate, and will be placing them in the fall when the balance of the Club members have returned.

Old Business: There remain about 10 untrimmed palms in EE, but because it is uncertain if all of the owners have received notification, an attempt will be made to reach the owners by telephone before taking further action. Some other type of trees on upper Napa appear to be dead and Stoney will be asked to look at them for possible removal.

New Business: The Wi-Fi program at the Ramada & pool area has gotten substantial use in the 6 month trial period authorized by the Board in December of 2010; due to the nominal monthly cost, and after a motion, duly made and seconded, it was

VOTED: to make the Wi-Fi program permanent at the Ramada/pool area, with the cost to be paid by the HOA.

The meeting was adjourned at 1:40 p.m.
