Irrigation Committee

Current Chairman

Chuck Allen   bodallen@rosedalemhoa.com

 

Purpose
The Irrigation Committee is commissioned by the Board of Directors to help ensure that
irrigation infrastructure and sources of water properly are maintained, operated and
upgraded. Working with the Board Treasurer, each year the committee will define a
budget amount adequate for its anticipated and unanticipated activities.

 

Responsibilities
Committee members will first define and determine the location of all irrigation
infrastructure, which includes the location of all main water lines, valves, all irrigation
feeds, irrigation heads, timers, and sources of power for driving the irrigation
infrastructure. While proceeding with this large task, the members of the committee will
regularly inspect the grounds and identify equipment requiring repair or other
management. The committee will likely need and use industry experts, independent
contractors, or properly licensed/insured qualified individuals to guide them. However,
they may not expend any funds on that guidance unless the Board specifically
authorizes them to do so.

Terms

Irrigation Committee members shall be appointed by the Board. Members are subject to
review and reappointment at the annual meeting.

 

Organization
The committee shall have no fewer than three members. The Board will appoint the
committee chair at a convenient Board Meeting. The chair and Board Members will
then solicit members for the committee and present them for Board approval at the next
regularly scheduled Board meeting. The committee will establish their meeting
schedule, submit it to the Board, maintain minutes as appropriate and will submit a
written committee report to the Board in advance of each board meeting.

 

Relationship to the Board
The committee serves as an advisor to the Board. The committee chair will interface
with the Board member named as the committee's liaison. The committee will make
written recommendations to the Board, which may accept or reject the
recommendations and take action accordingly. The committee shall deliver a report at
regular Board meetings; the report shall be in writing and submitted to the Board for
review at least five days prior to the date of the Board meeting.

 

Nothing in this charter prevents Board from exercising their statutory duty to maintain,
repair or replace the common property of the Association as they deem necessary.

 

Relationship to Management
The committee will not have a relationship with the property manager; the Board liaison
will work with the manager and Board of Directors accordingly. The Chair of the Irrigation
Committee and its Board liaison will meet as needed with the property manager.
Additionally, the Committee and its chair will maintain close working relationships with
the Head Greenskeeper for Coral Hospitality, whose cooperation is essential to the
smooth operation of our irrigation infrastructure.
