At last week’s Board meeting, the directors approved the following motion:

from Nov. 27, 2018 Board meeting agenda

from Nov. 27, 2018 Board meeting agenda

The change will become effective in 2019.  Over the last three years (ever since the discount/gratuity policy was implemented), one Admin employee has spent approximately 40 hours every month handling the billing workload that the discount/gratuity policy generated.

Three years ago, the December 2015 echo included the following paragraph as part of the GM’s article (the previous GM, who is no longer associated with Bent Tree either as an employee or as a property owner).  Click here, here, and here for previous related posts (from 2016).

30 Years Ago

The following is from the December 1988 echo.  It’s interesting to see that many of the things covered in the article are still topics of discussion today, 30 years later.  Take the following quote for example: “…’What are we?’  Please, let’s define what we are so we can be that.  Again, it is the most difficult question we have: Are we a Resort, Country Club, Retirement Community, Subdivision, or etc.”
