President's Letter -April 2014

Well, it’s been a great winter again here at the Oaks. I would like to thank all our committees for a wonderful job:
Our Neighborhood Watch Committee for their award at Charlotte County Sheriff’s Department seminar.
Our Social Committee for the pot luck dinners, shuffleboard and bocce games, and a great end-of-year party.
Our Beautification Committee for another super rummage sale and making Oaks IV one of the best-looking associations to live in.
And a big thank you to everyone else who has volunteered time and effort for our Association.
At our last Board meeting, after much discussion, we decided on renewing with Star Management. Penny will continue to be our Community Association Manager (CAM), and function as a portfolio manager. Joan will be in our office 35 hours per week and Mark and Norman will be our full-time maintenance staff. By making these small changes, we were able to reduce our management fees by $26,000 over our budgeted 2014 fees.
For our snowbirds, please remember to set your a/c to 80 for humidity control and turn off the water to your unit and the power to your hot water tank.
I am looking forward to see you all next season for another great year!
Don Soukup, President
