Michael Bennett moved, Gil Nickles seconded a motion to raise the 2016 TCV HOA dues by $50 ($1,000 per year). MOTION PASSED .

Fence & Pedestrian Gate – Jim Colgan and Gil Nickles reported on the completion of the job, noting the total expenditure of $9,085.50 which included the handyman work, materials and painting.
