Budget Bits - July
Posted on Jul 17th, 2019
by Mike Bossio, Treasurer
The Operating Budget continues to close strong at each month’s end. At the end of June 2019 we had an operating fund of $212,509.73. The Reserve Fund (RF) total increased to $799,840.20. It only increased over the May number by about $5000 but this was due to expenses paid for condo painting. This was of course budgeted for. We continue to deposit our budgeted $13,111.50 and earned $1,772.72 in interest. All other transactions were as planned.
I will continue to keep you apprised of our performance on a monthly basis.

How Long Does the Wood Last on a Cedar Deck?

A cedar deck can last a lifetime if properly maintained. Cedar decking is a naturally rot-resistant wood, which turns gray once you allow it to sit in the sun. It’s more environmentally-friendly option than chemically-treated lumber or man-made composites. It provides a deck that does not use any chemicals in the construction of the lumber. Many environmental factors determine the lifespan of a cedar deck & will diminish it natural defenses towards rotting without any protection from these elements: seasonal changes, hot sun exposure freezing & thawing. Lifespan of an unmaintained deck to 10 to 15 years. Maintenance includes power-washing, sanding, sealing with a vapor barrier (keeps moisture from entering the wood) & replacing deck boards. A cedar deck that gets proper maintenance could last 25 to 40 years. Spot removal is done with a rotary tool & a nylon brush attachment dipped into a cleaning solution. Maintenance should include the underside of the deck. Cedar is the most maintenance-intense of all decking materials. Choose composite decking if you want a deck that requires no more maintenance than a periodic wash. Composite materials cannot rot. These composites are also the most expensive of all decking material. The Association does have a specific information on approved composite materials. Please contact Architectural Control Committee (ACC) for further information.

Fox Run update
Posted on Mar 19th, 2019
By Gayle C. Hinman
Hello all, Last night a handful of us went to the Novi City Planning Commission meeting. I presented as did one other on behalf of the neighborhoods that border on Fox Run. We were told quite brusquely by the chairman that no questions were allowed in that forum. Thankfully members Anthony and Avdoulos (sp?) asked very pointed questions that not only acknowledged our concerns but addressed the things we wanted to ask and more. We appreciated their recognition that wetlands and woodlands should be protected and determined that only .03 acres were going to be effected. Having said that, all revisions being asked for by Fox Run were approved. Now here is the really great part....once the meeting moved on to other matters and we all got up to leave, 3 wonderful gentlemen came out to help explain and clarify the concerns we were evidently struggling with.
