The board reports 75 pool memberships and 8 booked parties of which 7 were paid. It has come to the attention of the Board that residents are not aware or not adhering to the rules of pavilion rentals, guests per registered member and/or giving access to the pool area to non-members.
In an effort to address the education of members on the pool rules, the board will provide a list of the pool rules when a resident applies for a pool membership. These rules will be distributed with their pool access gate cards.
In terms of maintenance, the older of the two pool pumps has stopped working. We can not replace the exact model, but we were able to replace the motor and the pump is running effectively. A spare motor was purchased as backup. In addition, due to the heat of the summer and pool use the pool chemical supply has been depleted. Purchase of additional chemicals was necessary to complete the summer season.
Overall, the landscaping service is meeting expectations. The board has noted that limbs along Tidwell needs to be addressed. This will be reported to the service this week.
The board has nothing to report regarding Deed restrictions as of this meeting.

Residents posted on the Candlelight Oaks Facebook page occurrences of theft in day light hours while residents are home. Residents affected by these thefts and/or attempts have stated they are reporting these incidents to the police.
Residents reported on Facebook two catalytic converters were stolen in the month of July. One of the vehicles were parked on the street and the other in the resident’s driveway at the time of the thefts. At least one of the vehicles was a Toyota.
We have confirmed that Homeland is responsive to vacation watch requests. The July report reflects those residents who placed a vacation watch were adequately addressed in the security shifts.
