Proof of notice of this meeting was mailed to RPCC Membership on April 3, 2017, containing the following: Meeting Notice, Agenda for meeting, Proposed Budget and Balance Sheet.
Minutes from the 2016 Annual Meeting were read. A motion was made to accept the minutes as read, motion was seconded and approved.
Copies of the RPCC Income Statement, Cash Flow and Budget for 2015 thru 2017 and the Balance Sheet December 31, 2016 and the 2018 and 2019 proposed budget were mailed to all community members. Larry reviewed the financial statements and the 2018 budget. A motion was made to approve the RPCC 2018 budget, it was seconded and approved. Larry also noted that in the 2019 projected budget, expenses are greater than income. Currently $492 of the $600 annual dues is allocated for principle and interest payments on the new water system. The issue was raised that a dues increase may be needed in the future to cover expenses. Steve reviewed the repair savings since the new water system was installed, $19,289 in 2015 compared to $1,809 in 2016. Jason Powell conducted an audit of the RPCC financial accounts. There were no significant discrepancies found. A motion was made to approve the RPCC 2016 audit, it was seconded and approved
The permit for the seawall replacement was issued Sept 23, 2016. Surf smelt and sandlance lay eggs on our beach, thus severely impacting the window for construction. An inspection by WDFW is needed and the project must start within 3 days after the inspection. A portion of a Navy floating dock landed on the RPCC beach. Johnny Johnson from the Navy attempted to pull it off the beach, the attempt was unsuccessful, his comment ‘gonna need a bigger boat’. The plan now is to bring a trailer to load it on, a permit is needed for this to be done. Another section of dock is on the beach beyond Camp Grande.
Steve will give details of the effort to bring all properties into compliance with the CCR’s under old business.
All quiet, no water problems. The RPCC water system has the capacity for 189 permits, there are currently 35 available. Larrie is resigning her position as water chairperson but will remain active in community affairs. .
Election of Directors: Larrie Adamson nominated Jason Powel for water chairperson. A motion was made to elect Jason as water chairperson. The motion was seconded and approved. A motion was made to reelect the president, treasurer, secretary and beach chairperson for one more two year term. The motion was seconded and approved.
In August 2016, CCR non-compliance letters were sent to approximately 50 RPCC members. Some violations were minor, some major, with the majority being overheight trees and hedges. As of Dec. 1, only six properties were still in violation. On Dec. 13, final notices were sent out to those six members. There are three properties still in violation and no response has been received from the members.
On January 27, 2017, fines of $10 per day per property began to accrue. The board tried to get help from the county in enforcing the CCR’s but were told nothing could be done. A question was asked about how the CCR’s are enforced. The fines will continue to accrue, with interest, and at the end of the year liens will be filed on the properties.

neighborhood in July. Sunset will be widened 2 ½ ft on each side.
