The Board of Directors of the Tropicana Homeowners Association held a meeting today. In attendance were the nine board directors including President Bob Van Fleet and about 40 members.
For those of you who don’t know about this organization, it consists of homeowners who are not shareholders (ie who are not members of the Co-op.) Prior to the resident purchase of the park in 2011, the THA had 470 members. Now it has about 330 eligible members.
At the meeting, there was concern expressed regarding membership. The group has many members who have not yet paid their $10.00 dues. For those who wish to become paid-up, you need to contact one of the directors. Mr. Van Fleet referred to this matter as “an important piece of business.” A number of members volunteered to make phone calls and help bring in more dues.
Another concern was about possible further rent increases in 2013. It was pointed out that the current rent placed Tropicana as one of the most expensive among comparable parks in the area.
Ms. Sandra Locher presented a prototype of a web site that she is designing for the THA.
