Old Business

Food Trucks (Agenda Item 7A)

Ms. Munro requested the Board take a position on the presence of food trucks in the Village of River Hill, as they have caused issues for residents, and that the trucks find a more suitable location (other than Empty Song) because a precedent is being set with food trucks uncontrolled on residential streets. Mr. Kirk concurred that the food trucks, while welcomed in the Village during the pandemic, have now become disruptive. Ms. Munro suggested drafting a position statement on the topic of food trucks not being supported by the Board of Directors and for that statement to be shared in The Villager and via the Association’s other communication platforms. Mr. Greenberg suggested having the Board of Directors take over the food truck process (scheduling of dates, times, locations, etc.) to better monitor them and to determine the number of times they would be permitted at various spots in the Village.

 

Mr. Kirk made a motion to have Ms. Munro draft a letter to the Board and Village residents regarding the coordination and scheduling of food trucks. Ms. Munro declined. Mr. Kirk offered to draft a letter to work on scheduling a coordinated effort for food trucks in the Village.

 

 

Drag Racing (Agenda Item 7B):

Mr. Kirk stated that police have been enforcing the drag racing/modified car issues and the problem had diminished. He would like the Board to encourage police to address the noise abatement issue but recognizes that the police response to his request for an update on this likely won’t occur until January 2023 after local elections have concluded and new officials are seated. Ms. DuBois stated that the Association’s working relationship with the Howard County Police Department is very positive. The Board agreed to table the topic until the January.

 

At 8:30 Student Advisory Member Ms. Gao rejoined the meeting.

 

New Business

Ms. DuBois stated that she’d like to get them involved in more meaningful tasks such as a Lunar New Year celebration, researching grants, and other experiences. Ms. Gao, Student Advisory Member, said that she would ask the Teen Advisory Committee for input, but that one idea already discussed related to offering a technology help session for adults that need assistance with their smart devices. Ms. DuBois recommended that a Position Description be developed for Student Advisory Members and noted that Maryland law requires the filing of a charter with the Department of Land Records for any type of committee. Ms. DuBois hopes to expand the offerings for the TAC to include more meaningful and relevant activities this year.

 

Ms. Gao left the meeting at 8:32 p.m.

 

July 31, 2022, CA Financial Reports (Agenda Item 8B):

Ms. DuBois provided information about the management contract that allows the Association to rent/lease Claret Hall and The Meeting Room. July 31, 2022, marked the end of the first quarter. Leases and rentals are up so far this year, as are staff salaries (due to high number of rentals/private events and to bring salaries closer to market rate), payroll taxes, janitorial expenses, insurance costs and legal fees. Building maintenance items needed to be completed such as power washing the back patio area, while other items such as stripping and redoing the areas of concrete tile in the Banquet Room and Lobby of Claret Hall still need to be completed. Currently the Association is budgeted to lose approximately $25,000 mainly due to money that was paid and carried over from last year and the lack of time to seek out sponsorships for special events thus far.

 

Mr. Kirk made a motion to approve the CA Financial Reports as presented. Mr. Bruening seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously.

 

At 8:55 p.m., Mr. Kirk made a motion to take a brief recess. There was no dissent.

He then read the principal’s letter that was sent to parents later in the day on October 11 which mentioned the trend known as “Swatting” where numerous threats are being called in to schools around the country in an attempt to elicit a significant police response. The threats to RHHS are not deemed as credible. Mr. Bruening requested that a letter be drafted in support of the school and to let them know the Board of Directors wishes to express appreciation for the efforts of the school staff to keep the students safe and the efforts of all who were involved in the response and reunification process. Mr. Bruening offered to draft the letter which would require unanimous consent before being sent to RHHS. There was no dissent.
