General Meeting March 5, 2013


Call to Order: 7:00PM, Vic Strmic (standing-in for Josh Hart)

Location: Shaw Butte Elementary School, 12202 N 21st Ave
Attendance: 18 Adults; Officers present: Ed Dziuk, Patty Smith, Artie Hauer, Mary Hauer

Welcome Remarks: CMNBW newly elected Chairman, Ed Dziuk, welcomes all attending and remarks on the array of deserts, thanking all those who responded to the desert potluck. Ed introduced “Nextdoor” online for anyone interested in communicating with Cox Meadows neighbors securely and/or privately. (as of this writing, we have 31 members; 24 households out of a possible 281).

Ed announced the plan to hold an April clean-up featured on the flier. The date is marked for Saturday, April 20, 2013, 6:00AM. Tools have been acquired and are ready for use. A paint sprayer has also been purchased. We are in search for a feasible phone plan to acquire 2 phones for PNP.

Ed then turned the discussion to neighborhood crime stastics. Checking the newspaper’s weekly table of crimes corresponding to the zip codes in the city is a way to stay aware of our area.

Ed introduced Sue and Mike from Sweetwater, neighbors to Street Rep, Julie Lococo. Next to be introduced was Artie Hauer, our new Treasurer of CMNBW. Artie attended the Variance Meeting held just before our Block Watch meeting tonight. This Variance meeting was in regards to Home Depot needing a variance to park trucks near the street for up to 72 hours.

Ed wants to make sure the signature card is signed by the new president and treasurer soon at M&I Bank.

Patty Smith is our new Co-Chairman. Patty will be facilitating the April meeting for Ed. A PNP officer is possibly going to be our guest for the April meeting.
