      V.      New Business


a.       Storm Water Management

Ø  The county recently informed Greenwood that an agreement was made in 2001 for the community to maintain the pond/storm water area of debris, trees, trash, etc.  The agreement states that trash has to be removed from the drainage areas and the shoreline must be clear of animal holes and brush.  If anything blocks it or a tree falls down in that area, the county will charge us for clean up if we do not keep it maintained.  Dan Burnside received an estimate from our landscape company of $1500.00 which will remove the trees along backside of pond, remove trees and brush at drainage culvert locations, 10 feet on each side, and chip the trees into stumps as close to ground as possible.  Board looking to receive 1 more estimate and by next Friday, a decision will be made to move forward on the project.

Ø  Dan Burnside also suggested looking into the Chesapeake Bay Foundation for any grants to help beautify and maintain the pond area after removing the necessary trees and brush.  Dan Burnside will obtain more information for next meeting.

b.       Purple Martin Houses                        

Ø  It was suggested by a Greenwood resident to purchase some Purple Martin houses to place around the pond area to also help with bug and mosquito control.  Homeowner will be getting an estimate before the next executive meeting.
