Thank You for Attending the 2012 General Meeting

Message From Your President,

I want to thank you so much for attending the meeting and supporting your Board of Directors with your vote. We are very appreciative the community turned out in such large numbers to support our continued work enforcing the deed restrictions.

The misguided attempt by the opposition group could have easily followed through with their threat to take over the Board of Directors if you had not attended and given voice to your position. One of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit against the LCPOA to stop enforcement of the deed restrictions nominated their candidate from the floor, but was easily defeated by a large margin.

Election Results –The results of the election are shown below. The 8 Director nominees with the highest number of votes were elected. All of those elected support the enforcement of the deed restrictions. Exactly 384 ballots were issued. Our By-laws require two ballots for each membership unit to afford spouses a differing vote.

Important Amendments Passed - An important amendment to the By-laws was passed by a majority vote to enforce the deed restrictions as written in the Lake Country Dedication and Restrictions covenants. This will assure future board members do not attempt to interpret the deed restrictions for their personal benefit at the expense of the neighborhood standards and property values.

Another important amendment was passed by a majority vote to provide a method to remove board members who do not support the Purpose of the Lake Country Property Owners Association.

Law Suit Status - We notified 110 residences of their deed restriction violations in 2011. Of the 110 notified, 92 came into compliance. Only 18 have failed to come into compliance, less that 2% of the 1160 Lake Country residents.

On Sept 12, 2011 some of this minority filed a law suit to permanently prevent the Association from enforcing all deed restrictions. We appeared for a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) hearing in the 236th District Court on Sept 23, 2011 and the plaintiffs requested a later date for the hearing. With the assumption that the hearing would be near term, the Attorneys and the Judge agreed that we would not send out any more deed restriction notices until the TRO hearing was accomplished. There has been a lot of frustrating delays in re-scheduling the hearing, but we are hopeful that some near term legal action will result in a court order requiring these plaintiffs to come into compliance with the deed restrictions.

Legal Fund Donations - Sadly this suit is costing the Association thousands of dollars that could be better spent to enhance our community. Many of you have made generous donations to our legal fund and with a private donor matching 33% of the money donated we have accumulated $3635 to help offset these expenses. We are filing for our legal costs as well.

Fort Worth City Councilman – There was exciting news from our Fort Worth City Councilman and Lake Country neighbor, Dennis Shingleton. Dennis gave an update of the various City projects effecting Lake Country Estates over the next 1-2 years. A new drainage study for the entire Lake Country Area, Cromwell Marine Creek bridge to start in March, Robertson Rd project out for bids in Dec 2012, HEB coming soon to Bailey Boswell and Boat Club Rd and plans for the transmission cables to go underground opposite the main entrance to Lake Country Dr.

 

Thank You For Your Continued Support,

Bob Lynch
