1.       Has Kennecott Land realized or looked into having Qwest will people directly for the internet fees? This would largely bring down the amount of owed revenue to the HOA and would prevent other Daybreak Homeowners from having to continue absorb the portion unpaid HOA fees that have to do with the Qwest internet services. 

 

Kennecott Land still is working with Qwest on the new contract and they are pushing for Qwest to start direct billing for internet instead of having it come out of HOA fees. The problem is that the current contract allows them to bill the way they are now, so not sure what to expect here.


2. Considering all the budgets cuts that will be made (some are below) there should be enough funding for CCMC not remove the snow removal services from the Daybreak Townhomes, will the BOD agreed to leave the snow removal services in place? And if cost is an issue will the BOD allow ANY local Daybreak business to bid for the job? (I am sure there are plenty of local businesses can beat the $60,554 we are currently paying)
 

 

Yes I believe the snow removal is staying for now (correct me if I am wrong), The BOD and the HOA office will takes bids from any local company who wants to bid on any of the services that are budgeted for in 2009. If you are interested email Derek at the HOA office at dtarries@ccmcnet.com and make sure to cc Ty (the new BOD president) on your email as well Ty.McCutcheon@kennecott.com 




3. Will you allow the residents to view the Eastlake Pool gas and electric bills from last year, the projected bills for 2009 are $29,859 which seems too high? There needs to be validation for the costs and we need to make sure the Daybreak Homeowners are not being charged margins to pay a bill.



Did not get a chance to ask



4. How much money is in the reserve fund?



$0

5. What is being done with the lease on the security truck?

 

We own the truck (Daybreak Homewoners) and the HOA is using it for the maintenance man


6. Will you allow ANY local or Daybreak business to bid on the park garbage removal? (I am sure there are plenty of local businesses that can beat the $18,700 we are currently paying)

7. What is the status of the Dog Park that was promised to be finished in August?

 

Ty, the new BOD president was not sure of the status of the Dog Park, Kennecott Land will get back to me on this soon.


8. Will you allow ANY local or Daybreak Business to bid on the landscaping at the DCC? (there are many local businesses can beat the $500 that we are currently paying)

10. Please indicate exactly what signs this is for? And will you allow for ANY local business (Daybreak Homeowners) to bid on the signage? (There are a few residents in this industry that I know who can beat the $8,140 we are paying)

11. What exactly is the $18,000 per year ($1,500 per month) for the Management fee under the Programs for? And do the Daybreak Homeowners really need to be paying $18,000 per year for management fees for Party Planning? We are already being grossly overcharged for a Party Planner as it is.

 

Derek said this was for accounting fees, and I said since we already are paying accounting fees on the DCA part of the budget was this just CCMC profit, he said no. I think this is 90% profit for CCMC and believe we are being fleeced on this one, just my opinion.




12. Why are we getting electricity bills for the programs? What are they for and will you allow the residents to view the electricity bills for the programs for 2008? We need to validate the $3,441 that is in the 2009 budget for this.



This is supposedly 10% of the DCC electric bills, which should be public records, so if someone has the time please get this number for me, I bet this is just more CCMC profit and I believe this is another area where the Daybreak Homeowners are being fleeced, just my opinion.


~~Budget Adjustment Questions~~


1. Will CCMC cut costs 10% across the board? This would be only affecting the CCMC profit margins or Salaries of the DCA and DCC and would not be implemented to any other areas of the budget. 
 

 

The answer was “NO, CCMC is in business to make money” and CCMC will not freeze their planned 4% wage increases next year either, in my opinion this is irresponsible and another instance where the Daybreak Homeowners are being fleeced.


This cut would save the Daybreak Homeowners $45,565 from the DCA and $38,312 from the DCC Salaries. This adjustment would save the Daybreak Homeowners $83,877



2. Are ALL of these budget adjustments being made, if NOT explain why in detail…


A. Newsletter - quarterly instead of monthly (already on the list of being reviewed I believe), a savings of $76,449.



Done
.


B. Tree replacement - Any trees west of Oakmond in Founders Village and in Eastlake Village should be paid for by Valley Crest considering the HOA office did identify all the dead trees in late spring/early summer before the warranty expired, however action was not taken because the ideal time of year to replace the trees (early spring) had passed. Kennecott Land should be able to require Valley Crest to replace these which would save about $29,000.

 

HOA didn’t have the nerve/leverage to negotiate this with Valley Crest, I will be trying to get Kennecott Land to help out on this one…



.
C. Security - I believe most residents feel that the only security we need is the lake security, we can get rid of the patrol security which would be a savings of about $169,659.  

 

Done
.

D. Programs - We should eliminate the entire programs staff, the Lifestyle Director (Party Planner) position, and the three assistants that CCMC is looking to hire, this would save $110,000. My proposal is to have the programs committee be comprised of and ran by Daybreak residents and the new DCC assistant club director serve on the committee as a coordinator, not a leader. 
 

 

The three part time employees will NOT be hired and unfortunately we still will have a grossly overpaid under qualified party planner for now, stay tuned I heard some rumors this might change next year…



E. Splash Pool Staff – These are positions that are not needed, we are already fully staffed at the DCC and can rotate some of those workers to watch the Splash Pool Friday-Sunday and have no staffing at the Splash Pool Mon-Thurs. This would save $13,912.  

 

NOT going to happen, no new employees are being hired.





3. Will Kennecott Land allow CCMC to rent space in the Daybreak Village center below market cost? Right now the proposal is $5000 per month for a 3000 sq ft space which is market rate and what Kennecott Land is charging other merchants. I propose that either Kennecott Land charge CCMC half of market rate which would make the rent only $2500 per month or have CCMC purchased a pre-foreclosed home for around $300,000 and just use it as the HOA office, and yes it is legal to do that since all of Daybreak is PC zoned.
 

 

Kennecott Land will be looking at both options, buying a house or giving a discount to CCMC to space below market rate for the new HOA Office.

 

Other notes....

 

The park at Oakmond and Lumina will be extended and a new playground will be put in sometime next Spring.

 

The new resident on the BOD, has no experience and has never attended a single Daybreak Activity and has not been involved in any Daybreak Committee's. (Safe pick for Kennecott Land I suppose to have someone who has no idea what the majority of Daybreak Homowners concerns are on the BOD)
