HOA Board BUDGET Meeting
Wednesday, October 27th, 6:30 pm at Zoom meeting
This regular meeting of the FLT HOA Board to review and approve the 2022 Budget, is on Wednesday October 27, 2021.
The proposed budget will be sent to all Owners in advance of the meeting, by USPS or electronically where Owners have approved electronic communications.
The AGENDA is posted below (under Forest Lake News & Information), and the proposed Budget is posted in the MEMBERS section under the Board Minutes tab.
++++Due to COVID19, this virtual meeting will be conducted using Zoom. Details are posted in the MEMBERS section under the Zoom Meetings tab.++++

HOA Annual General Meeting
Tuesday, February 8th, 7:30 pm at Zoom meeting
The ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING (AGM) of FLT OWNERS, is on Tuesday February 8, 2022.
Voting for the HOA Board will be conducted by ezVote in advance of the meeting, results will be provided by Tropical Isles at the AGM.
 
Whereas the HOA is required by our Bylaws to provide written Notice of the Annual General Meeting to each Member, by referendum the owners at the 2021 AGM approved that all election materials that accompany the electronic voting for future AGM’s be sent by email, unless the Member requests that the Association provide the complete election package by mail.
 
In addition to the above change, an email from ezVote Support was sent to Owners on Wed Sept 29, 2021 at approximately 12:20 pm, requesting Owners vote their preference for HOA communications. as follows:
1. Do you accept all future communications from FLT electronically? (Where individual owners agree with this, the HOA will communicate specifically with those Owners electronically). Owners who approve this ballot question will therefore also receive the NOTICE of the AGM via email.
2. Do you approve an Amendment to our Docs allowing electronic communications where our Docs currently require USPS mailings (If a minimum of 2/3 Owners (166) approve this question, then all future communications to all Owners will be electronic unless Owners specifically request USPS mailings). If over 166 Owners approve this ballot question our Bylaws will be amended to provide electronic communication (email) to all Owners for all HOA matters, unless Owners specifically request USPS mailings.

To track the predicted path of a tropical storm or hurricane, obtain the information from the NOAA, National Hurricane Center, Miami FL. Look for the App for your smart phone, for example  
 
To track the intensity of the storm, to see the areas of heavy rain for example, use a Weather App that provides radar information, for example 
 
For an EXTREMELY PRECISE map of the projected path of the storm, (you can zoom in to street level) obtain the ESRI Hurricane and Cyclone App, for example  
 
All owners are responsible for the installation and removal of hurricane shutters on their townhomes. The HOA may offer advice, but is not responsible for actions taken (or not taken) by home owners. Windows and the interior of townhomes are the responsibility of homeowners, so any damage resulting from homeowners failing to install hurricane shutters is the homeowners responsibility. After the storm has passed, the HOA will provide a deadline to home owners for having hurricane shutters removed.   
 
 
 
     
If you have replaced your townhomes windows with Hurricane Rated windows, please inform Courtney so that she may update our community database to indicate your home will not require hurricane shutters in advance of a hurricane.
