Sorry, folks, I have been somewhat remiss on keeping up with and sharing all of the important information due to summer vacations and with having caught the latest 'bug' that has been going around. At least, some things have been in a bit of a summer lull. However, as we are ending one WVID budget year and about to begin the next, it seems some significant general updates are definitely in order...
-At the end of August, the WVID Supervisory board did approve the final 2014/2015 budget as it was proposed in July. If you would like to inspect it in detail, click here to view the full report. The current budget year ends on September 30th.
-A particular item of interest to point out, though, is that a new position has been created for a part-time monitor of onsite grounds projects and liaison between the supervisory board and the residents. The position title is Operations Manager, and a person with construction and project management background will be sought. Residents will also be able to contact the individual directly regarding issues and concerns.
-Mr. Eric Anderson, Chairman, resigned from the Board. There was a motion seconded to appoint Mr. Martin Black to the Board of Supervisors to complete the remainder term of Eric Anderson. The motion carried unanimously. Mr. Wodraska administered the oath of office, and Mr. Black took his seat on the Board of Supervisors.
-The schedule of meetings for the upcoming budgetary year (2014/2015) was also approved and posted.

-The permitting process for townhomes that are to be offered in Gran Paradiso is underway, and permits allowing for gopher tortoise relocation were transferred from Sam Rodgers' organization to the district and Lennar.
-Direction to go with sod replacement along the 41 corridor is still, of course, a subject of ongoing discussion and somewhat controversial debate.
Future updates as events warrant. ;)
