I have received a number of questions, comments, and suggestions from residents after the turnover meetings. To keep the discussions transparent and productive, I will post some of these comments below as "Anonymous". I welcome your emailed comments, some of which may be posted to this site by me under the name "Anonymous". You are also free to write your own suggestions and post them here yourself. Thank you. - Mark V.

I received a message from Chuck Schneider of Community Development Inc. this morning. He wanted to update our residents as quickly as possible following some of last evening's questions. Complete answers will take a few days.
"I have spoken with Gina [Lampe] and she has begun working on researching the water bills. Her contact, Jody, with the city of Hugo is out of the office today. Gina tried talking to another staff person, however they were not knowledgeable on water billing. Gina will continue working internally on our end and will hopefully be able to speak with Jody tomorrow." - Chuck Schneider.
As more information becomes available, I will post it to our website.

New Board Members will be selected by homeowners. Homeowner committees, such as the Social, Garden, and Grounds Committees will be formed. The City of Hugo will also update residents on their findings related to the groundwater/ sump pump issue.
