Treasurer Amanda Wilson presented our financial report, and a copy was provided to attendees.There was a decline in paid memberships, and this was reflected by a reduced reserve amount.We discussed the need to increase our paid membership to avoid shortages that can be caused by unexpected repairs, such as charges incurred at the neighborhood entrance.

There was a discussion about block parties.The City of Dublin requires unanimous agreement of all residents to close off a court, and also requires a permit fee to be paid.HVCA will pay the fee for any group of residents who can organize themselves to plan the event.
We discussed the need for more volunteers, most especially:
-A welcome committee for new residents
-A civic liaison who will attend city meetings and report back to nextdoor.com with relevant information.
