There still is time to vote in The Landings Association’s Annual Dues (Assessment) proposal. Property owner turnout for the vote is critical to ensure that the outcome will truly represent the will of the majority. Why? Consider these points…
I’m going in a different direction with this month’s Budget Box…The Landings Association’s Board of Directors election.
Each year, a Nominating Committee of your volunteer neighbors interviews those owners who have chosen to stand for election and selects a slate of six qualified candidates for three Director positions. I commend those who willingly put themselves out there to their fellow neighbors.
So why a Budget Box on this topic? Your elected Board sets the direction for the Association. This includes making spending decisions and approving the operating and reserve budgets. These neighbors serve as fiduciaries, ensuring proper fiscal responsibility which all owners want to ensure. During an annual orientation, legal counsel provides guidance on such topics as Board fiduciary obligations, including the duty of standard of care, the good business judgment rule, and the duty to act in good faith and in the best interest of the Association.
NOTE: This is a virtual meeting. In-person attendance is not permitted as we practice social distancing as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDD) to help flatten the curve of COVID-19.
If you hear gunshots that appear to be coming from the marsh, it could be the sounds of a rail hunter taking part in the season. Fall marks rail or “marsh hen” hunting season in Georgia.
There are four groups of “marsh hens” that frequent this area -- king, clapper, sora, and Virginia. According to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ website, there is a limit of 15 per day and 45 in possession for king and clapper, and 25/45 for sora and Virginia. King and clapper are the most popular in our area.
Landings Harbor and Delegal Creek Marina’s operational hours were adjusted recently for fall. Both Marinas are now open Monday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Daylight hours will roll back towards the end of October, and operations will adjust to meet boating and customer service needs.
