G: Owner Directory Denise combined several files to create a complete and detailed list of unit owners. Cynthia Kula has kindly offered her services again to keep the directory updated. New Business: Various renters and unit owners, particularly a regular renter who sent a polite letter to the Board, have complained about this year's infestation of crows. Most have declared the crow population to be worse than ever. While some believe that the crows will soon move on as part of their normal migration, the Board will ask Maintenance Supervisor Arnie to replace the nylon fishing line once hung randomly over the pool deck. An owl figurine will be purchased and placed at the edge of the roof. If further measures are required, Jack recommends installation of purple martin houses; purple martins and crows, he says, are natural enemies. Adjournment: A motion for adjournment by Jack, seconded by Bruce, passed unanimously at 4:15 p.m.
