CPI Calculation was determined by the Holiday Lake Attorney and will always go through him so that the liability will fall on him and future boards will not have to worry about it and it will be done in January of each year.
CPI Billing - Nicholas requested that the CPI be a separate line item in the future. The lake attorney will be asked to verify correct procedure according to the By-laws.
Nicholas asked about the use of Lake Assets for personal use as he had a report that the company truck was used to pull a vehicle out of the ditch.
