Snow removal issue. There was considerable discussion relative to the merits of having snow removal for our streets funded by the Woodbury Park Association. Three options were discussed:

1.      Contract snow removal and pay on a seasonal basis. This fee is paid regardless of whether there is a need to plow snow; however, we would have a contract that provided for the streets to be cleared each time it snows. This type of contract usually ensures the best snow removal service and is a fixed fee for the year.

2.      Contract snow removal on a “per-push basis”. This means we would contract snow removal; however, the fee paid for only when snow is moved. This type of contract is the best if there are infrequent snows; however, other customers are usually cleared first.

3.      Do not have any Woodbury Park funded snow removal.

 

Motion: a motion was made and seconded to authorize a contract for snow removal on a per push basis to be paid only if the service is performed prior to the city plowing the snow.

16 votes were counted in favor.

17 votes were counted as opposed.

Resolved: A contract for snow removal on a per-push basis will not be pursued.

 

Motion: a motion was made and seconded for the Woodbury Park Association to not enter in to a contract for any snow removal.

17 votes were counted in favor.

16 votes were counted as opposed.

Resolved: there will be no snow removal paid for by the Woodbury Park Association.

 

Speed of vehicles in the subdivision. One member of the association stated he has observed excessive speed in the subdivision. He has made a formal compliant to the police. The police have taken action and have increased patrols and issued several tickets.

 

Motion: a motion was made and seconded to form a committee to further address the speeding situation in the subdivision.

Resolved: A committee sanctioned by the Board of Directors and the at-large membership has been formed to address the vehicle speeding situation in Woodbury Park. The committee is empowered to act on the subdivision behalf to use all legal remedies available to resolve the speeding situation.
