Presidents Corner

Aloha, my name is Kari Hoffman and I am the President of HPPOA.  Here is a recap the November 16th Board Meeting to keep members informed on items addressed.  The Board received updates from the Treasurer, VP and Committees.  The Forensic Analysis is under way, the documents have been received by Mr. Von Gunther and they have started their process.  

The board approved to add two additional cameras to the office that will have audio capability.  The cameras will be purchased for $1,314.60 and will come with 30 day storage of footage as well as alarm monitoring for $59 a month.  This will allow the staff to record as needed for additional proof in questionable situations.

The Board voted to have $1,250,000 moved from saving to the Edward Jones account for the purchase of CDs in 3,6,9 and 12 month durations and not to be larger than $250,000 each.  These will be at interest rates between 4.5% and 4.7%.  This will allow the Association to earn more on their saving money and increase the FDIC coverage of the Association to $1.5 million.

The Association was notified that the Post Office will have 5,000 mailboxes for us to install.  They are requesting that they be placed off the main roads and have a roof over the place the boxes will be installed. The board asked GM Morris to start determining what permits will be necessary and what will be needed to get plans for the structure.  HPP has property at 14th & Kaloli and 16th & Makuu that can be used to house the mailbox stations for the park.  More info to come.

The Board approved a $10 fee per lot for any payments on a credit or debit card.  This charge will help offset the charges from the bank to process the transactions.  Last year the Association had over $31,000 in fees paid for these transactions.

The Board discussed the road maintenance fees for next year and voted to not increase them.  They will remain at $396 per lot.

This month marks the 50th Anniversary of the Association.  There have been many changes over the past 50 years and while everyone hoped that all the roads would be paved by now, sadly that has not happened.  With more population in the park, the Board is dedicated to continue to move forward with paving as much as possible each year that the budget permits.

Paving bids for 4th street from Makuu to Kaloli are still out, we hope to award the bids at the December meeting.

Here are when these committees will meet next:

Membership Meeting Committee – Dec 12 at 1pm

Land Use Committee – Dec 13 at noon

Santa will arrive in Hawaiian Paradise Park on Dec 16th at 4pm till 6pm. Volunteers needed on Dec 16th to make this a great event for the kids.

Please remember to show the office staff Aloha when you call or stop in, they are there to service your needs, not to be yelled at.

We continue to have people dumping green waste along our roadways. Please note a license plate number and/or take photos if you see this taking place.  It costs HPPOA time and money to remove the debris.
