FIRST ORDER OF BUSINESS Call to Order and Roll Call

The Colonial Country Club Community Development District Ride Around Meeting was called to order, and Chair Worthington called the roll at 3:00 p.m. All Board members were present, with Supervisor Klein arriving at 3:05 p.m. Also in attendance was Cal Teague, the District Manager.

SECOND ORDER OF BUSINESS Audience Comments on Agenda Items

There were no Audience comments on Agenda items.

THIRD ORDER OF BUSINESS Community Assets Inspection

The Board inspected the recently completed Geofilter tube lake shore restoration project on Lake 22.

A. Stormwater System

The Board inspected some of the road issues, which they surmised could be from settling in the stormwater system. After further inspection, it was determined that it was the settling of the sanitary sewer manholes, which would be an issue that the City would address. It was stated that the HOA should follow up to ensure that the City completes the project.

B. Lakes and Spikerush Widths

The Board discussed the erosion issues on the shoreline of Lake 10 behind the home of resident Tom Jankowski in Whispering Palms, who had asked if it will be resolved. District Manager Teague stated that Field Manager Pepin had inspected the area with the contractor who was repairing Lake 10, and they both agreed that the slope of the shoreline was within desired guidelines. The Board agreed that Mr. Jankowski should be notified that the lake bank in question did not warrant repair at this time, but Field Manager Pepin will continue to monitor its condition.

The Board observed the width of the spikerush in a few lakes, and they requested that staff investigate and determine if the width should be reduced.

At this point it began to rain excessively, and the Board decided to ask Field Manager Pepin to report on the remaining items on the inspection list at the next meeting.

There were no Audience comments.
