The Kihei Resort’s website traffic for 2012

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. Be SURE to click on the CLICK HERE link to see the entire report. It includes an interactive map showing the locations of all the website’s visitors throughout the world (we’re VERY popular!). Pretty cool, IMHO!

Maui Mike sez “HAPPY NEW YEAR” to everyone.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,600 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

II. INTRODUCTIONS

The President welcomed the owners. Introductions were made at this time.

V. APPROVAL OF MINUTES OF LAST ANNUAL MEETING (2011)

The Minutes of the February 19, 2011, Annual Meeting were distributed to owners at registration.  Secretary Garrison asked if any owners would like the Minutes of the 2011 Annual Meeting read.  Hearing no requests to read the Minutes, the Secretary declared the Minutes of the meeting waived.

MOTION: To approve the Minutes of the February 19, 2011, Board of Directors’ Meeting as submitted.

Rea/Prey — Unanimous Approval

VI. TREASURER’S REPORT 

  • The Treasurer reported that the Association Budget operated on target.  At the end of the year, expenses exceeded income by only 1%.  The 2012 Maintenance Fees increase by 8%.  He attributed the increase to the rise in utility rates, including electricity and water.   Contributions to the Reserves remain as planned.  There is a Reserve Study in place.
  • Accounts receivable was reviewed.  Two units were secured by way of foreclosure, and both are in Quit Claim status, including units 123 and 218. Currently unit 123 is earning $900 a month. Unit 115 is owned by the bank.  When the unit is sold, the bank will have to pay the Association $7,200 toward its debt.  In the meantime, past due fees are accruing, as the maintenance fees are not being paid by the bank.
  • The Association is in sound financial condition.  The Treasurer welcomed ideas and suggestions from owners on how to save on expenses.

MOTION: That any excess of membership income over expenses for the year ending December 31, 2012 shall be applied against the subsequent tax year members assessments as provided by IRS Revenue Ruling 70-604.

Janitschek/Prey — Unanimous Approval

VII.  INSURANCE UPDATE

  • At the 2009 Annual Meeting, the Association approved the Insurance Resolution, requiring owners to obtain HO6 insurance coverage for their individual units.  The benefits of owners procuring this coverage were noted by the President.  HO6 coverage minimizes the impact of claims against the Association insurance.
  • A letter will be sent to all owners stating that it is incumbent upon each and every owner to have HO6 coverage.  The Association assured its insurance underwriters that the units are insurable, and that there were not any high risk issues in individual units that might impact other units and/or Kihei Resort as a whole.  The President cited an example where the Association had to pay the $5,000 deductible for a leak that occurred in an abandoned unit.  The cost of HO6 coverage for owners is minimal.
  • An inspection of high risk elements is required by a licensed contractor.  This will help the Association overall in the renewal of the Master Insurance Policy.
  • The President asked owners to obtain HO6 coverage by April 1, 2012.  Further, the Association is asking owners to have this proactive inspection of high risk elements conducted in a timely manner.

VIII. RESIDENT MANAGERS’ REPORT

Misty Wickwire updated the owners on Association projects and activities during the past year:

  • Re-caulking and re-painting of pool area
  • New pipes installed in Jacuzzi
  • New outdoor furniture purchased, including lounges and chairs
  • New lock installed
  • Landscaping upgrades
  • Ongoing electrical work
  • Change of all lights
  • Solar lamps installed for additional safety
  • New rock and water feature donated at second entryway
  • Dryer vent cleaning; 10) New front entry bird bath installed
  • Terminix inspection and treatment
  • Ongoing painting.

IX. LANDSCAPING AND GROUNDS

  • Management has evaluated the performance of the gardeners and inspected other properties to gain an objective perspective.  The goal is to maintain a manicured, eclectic look.  Bids from four different landscape companies have been solicited.
  • There was a leak in the sprinkler system in the parking lot noted that should be fixed.  One owner was disturbed by the use of noisy landscaping equipment.  Another owner was concerned about the gap in the hedge used as access into and out of the property.  The President agreed and would like to see the plant hedge “completely solid”. It will be addressed.
  • The HOA Board is in the process of selecting a new landscape contractor.  The Board will draft the duties and scope of work for the contractor, including days of week and hours of operation.

X. ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

With the terms of Directors Wendi Anderson, Bill Bowler, and Bob McDowell expiring, there are three vacancies on the HOA Board.  All three Directors have indicated an interest in serving another term.  The Secretary called for nominations from the floor.  Hearing none, he closed nominations.

MOTION: To elect Wendi Anderson, Bill Bowler, and Bob McDowell by acclamation to serve another term on the Board of Directors.

Bowler/Mandall — Unanimous Approval

XI. NEXT ANNUAL MEETING DATE

The next HOA Annual Meeting will be held on February 23, 2013.

Kihei Resort Updates & Other Stuff of Interest: 5 April 2012

  • Our NEW landscaping contractor, TROPICAL LANDSCAPING, started work on the property yesterday. Richard Wickwire, our on-site manager, was singing their praises this morning: “… GREAT work… they even brought cookies!!!” The TL Team has great plans for getting our “jungle” in shape, so we on the HOA Board look forward to marked improvement in the coming year!
  • The Kihei Resort HOA’s Annual Meeting in February had a good turnout! Owner participation during the OLD BUSINESS and NEW BUSINESS meeting segments was VERY enthusiastic; lots of new ideas for improvements were discussed and strong opinions were voiced on all sides. The Board’s Financial Report, presented by Bill Bowler, made it clear that, while the HOA’s finances are in the best shape they’ve been in for a couple of years, we’re still having to conserve funds in anticipation of regular maintenance and major upgrades (such as new roofing work) scheduled for the next few years, as well as paying for unanticipated repair work and necessary infrastructural upgrades.
  • Last week, the much-overgrown foliage and trees (owned by our neighbors) bordering on the south and east sides of Kihei Resort’s parking lot were drastically thinned out and trimmed back by landscapers. This lets more light penetrate to the barbecue area and has already reduced sap-fall and bird droppings on the vehicles that use the far eastern and southern ends of the parking lot. Didn’t cost the HOA a dime, either… can’t be bad!
  • Remediation work on Unit #117 has been approved and will begin in the coming weeks.
  • The Bone Fish are biting at Kalepolepo Beach! I caught four nice Bone Fish (the largest about 16 inches long) while doing some night fishing on the beach just south of Kalepolepo Beach Park, located near the Menehune Shores condo complex.  Humpback Whale breach, 13 Feb 2011, Ma'alaea Bay
  • Whale-watching Season is coming to an end. Most of the Northern Pacific Population of Humpback Whales that visit Ma’alaea Bay from October through May have headed back to their feeding grounds off Alaska. The 2012 Great Whale Count (on 25 February) tallied about 550 FEWER whale sightings this year (1,054 in 2012, versus 1,607 in 2011). NOAA and Pacific Whale Foundation scientists stated that, while the overall trend in whale sights has been a steady upward trend over the last few years, changes in regional water temperatures and availability of prey species in Alaskan waters account for variations in the number of whales seen in the bay from year to year.
