The Tropicana Co-Op will have its annual meeting on March 19 at 7:00 p.m. at the Clubhouse. Evidently, you need to get yourself on the agenda if you want to ask a question.

  1. I don’t see why the board meetings can’t have, at the end of business, a period for questions and comments from residents.

  2. I see the new pool signs are up. Why is there a swim diaper allowance? Swim diapers aren’t all that reliable and can still leak. As a 55+ resident owned community, wouldn’t it have been good to poll the residents to see how many really wanted that on the signs? I do not want to see the pool closed because it has to be shocked!

    It seems the board doesn’t feel resident input is necessary when making important decisions.

  3. To Horace – All three boards in the park have term limits. If no one steps forward to run for one of the directorships they get re-elected. All the terms are staggered so that one director drops off each year.

  4. To Just Wondering – Every YMCA pool in the US allows swim diapers, they fit just like a bathing suit. If they do leak it is filtered.

  5. To Watchman-The THA board has term limits in it’s by-laws in that a person can only serve 3 consecutive terms. Then that person has to take a break before serving again. The Co-op board has no term limits. A person can be on the board until they no longer wish to serve, are voted out or no longer live in the community.

  6. We recently changed the procedure for paying our monthly rent/assessment; now we pay directly to the bank rather than to the Tropicana management office. The rumor is that the bank is charging the co-op a fee of $3.50 per household for processing the payments.

    My questions are: (1) Is this true? (2) If it is true, why is the co-op paying the fee instead of the management company that we hired to take care of the day-to-day administration of the park? Last year it was part of their responsibilities to collect the rent even though the co-op generously supplied volunteers to sit in the clubhouse and receive payments in order to free up time for the onsite manager.

  7. There was a shareholder board workshop on Wednesday in the Craft Building. I understand it came up rather quickly. If an email notice can be sent out to the board members, why can’t one be sent to the shareholders? It doesn’t take much time or effort to send one. It’s almost as if they don’t want shareholders to know what they are discussing. Wouldn’t it be better to be heard firsthand from the board than repeated secondhand or as gossip?

  8. There seems to be some confusion about the land that co-op shareholders houses set on. Do shareholders own that land or do they just have a right to occupy that spot? Who holds title to it?
