Neighborhood Watch met every month except December. A Child Safety Event was organized and was a success. The meetings have been moved to La Luna Café in an effort to create a more informal meeting. Neighborhood Watch is planning three events for 2010 with one of them being the Child Safety Event.
Election of Board Members
There are three two-year positions that need to be filled. There were no volunteers at the time of the meeting. It was suggested that a possible change would be to make the board seven members instead of nine, but that would need require a change in the By-Laws. It was decided that we need to work hard to recruit people for these positions.
Adoption of 2010 Budget
Mike presented a detailed sheet on the budget for 2010. Increase in dues was discussed and decided that it would not be necessary until possibly 2012.
Motion to pass budget for 2010

Mike proposed that billing for the association dues be moved to February instead of July so that all invoices and dues can be collected and completed in the same calendar year. This would take effect in the 2011 calendar year. The July newsletter will explain the change in more detail.
