Budget Bits - April
Posted on Apr 13th, 2021
By Mike Bossio, Treasurer
Our Operating Fund through March is sitting at $206,327.94, up from $188,005.51 through February. The Reserve Fund is now up to $1,127,373.63, up from $1,110,275.08 in February. We deposited the planned RF monthly deposit of $17,046.17. It is still early in the year and things are still proceeding as planned.
As I indicated in the previous 2021 Budget Bits, I will calculate the Reserve Advisors “anticipated” Reserve Fund amount through the first quarter of this year using the Reserves Advisors’ “yearly anticipated” amounts of interest earned, recommended contributions and anticipated expenses, and then compare that number to our actual quarterly Reserve Fund Balance. I have done that through March of this year and the results are: Actual quarterly Reserve Fund amount is $1,127,373.73 (see above) and this compares to the projected quarterly Reserve Fund of $1,072,635 (calculated). As noted previously, this calculated amount is based on a linear extrapolation of the elements that make up the Anticipated Reserves, namely, Recommended Contribution, Earned Interest, and Anticipated Expenditures. As such, we are exceeding the RA Anticipated Reserves by about 5.0% YTD. I will continue to provide you with the quarterly estimate of the Reserve Fund and compare it to the Reserve Advisors anticipated quarterly amount.
This is a short report but things are going forward as planned. I will continue to keep you apprised of our performance on a monthly basis.
Hosta Replacement
Posted on Apr 1st, 2021
By Gayle C. Hinman
There have been a few residents that mentioned that they would like to remove the hostas in front of their home and/or along their front door walkway. The Landscape committee gave the BOD a few replacement suggestions. The choices were made considering height, watering needs, and required sunlight needs. The BOD approved their recommendations at the March meeting. The following perennials have been selected:
Lady’s Mantle
Nepeta (Catmint)
Crepe Myrtle
If a resident chooses to do this, please remember all costs and maintenance would be at owner’s expense, just like when planting annuals in the approved locations.
If you would like any further clarification or help in making a selection please contact Sandy Tomlinson at:
New Trash Contract
Posted on Mar 12th, 2021

An article from Novi.org:  New trash contract provides cost-savings to residents
Published: 3/9/2021
A new solid waste, recycling and yard waste provider will be taking over service in Novi beginning July 1. GFL Environmental USA was awarded an eight-year contract with the City and will be replacing current provider Waste Management.

The first-year cost to residents would be $138, down from the $173.88 per year cost currently being paid. GFL's year eight fee is still below the current cost at $148.61. Residents will still receive the same level of service; a 96-gallon trash cart plus additional bags weighing no more than 35 gallons and weekly recycling collection utilizing a 64-gallon card.
For Dog Lovers
Posted on Feb 8th, 2021
By Gayle C. Hinman
For a dog lover, there is nothing worse than the thought of losing your best buddy.
But you should still be prepared for the possibility. The better prepared you are, the better chance you have of being reunited quickly.

1. Get the word out
As soon as you realize your dog is missing, tell all your friends and neighbors, and ask them to keep an eye out for your dog.

2. Go searching
Search around your area, and go to places you know your dog is familiar with. Get some help from friends to cover a wider area.
