UPDATE - Notice of Annual Meeting of HOA Membership - November 7, 2013

October 28, 2013

The Annual Meeting of Katy Lake Homeowner's Association, Inc. (the “Association”) will be held on Thursday, November 7, 2013, at the Waxahachie Country Club, 1920 U.S. 287 
Business, Waxahachie, TX 75165. 

Sign-in will begin at 6:45 p.m. and the meeting will begin promptly at 7:00 p.m., once quorum is established. The Association is a non-profit corporation chartered under the laws of the State of Texas and, as such, is required to hold Meetings of its Members.

The Meeting has been called by the Board of Directors pursuant to Article VIII, Section 4 of the Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions of the Katy Lake on the Greens, Phase 1 (the “CCRs”), wherein it states “An annual meeting of the Members of the Association shall be held in October of each year.”

  2. Vote to ratify changes in our CCRs & Bylaws which will:
  • Merge Phase II homes automatically, irrevocably into our existing HOA at the time each home closes with permanent financing or, in the event of an all-cash sale, receives a Certificate of Occupancy from the City of Waxahachie. The legal documents governing the construction phase of Phase 2 declare this explicitly, and we must amend our CCRs to match that language.This means all Phase II homes will become members of our existing HOA.
  • Update legal language in the existing CCRs to reflect that we are a homeowner-run HOA.
  • Update legal language in the existing CCRs to bring them into compliance with current Texas law governing the operation of HOAs. 

To conduct a homeowners meeting, a quorum of thirty percent (30%) of the Members must be represented in person or by proxy. In order to be sure of a quorum, please sign and date the Proxy and Absentee Ballot and return it by mail to P.O.

You will receive one or more follow-up emails containing links to these documents.

Sincerely,

Greg Gorman, President

HOA Meeting to be rescheduled

October 22, 2013
 
RE: HOA Meeting TO BE RESCHEDULED
 
Dear Katy Lake HOA Members,
 
Due to a delay in finalizing our revised Declaration of Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CCRs), the HOA membership meeting scheduled for Thursday, October 24 will be rescheduled to a date in early November.
 
We are committed to providing you ample time to review the revised CCRs and we have  not received the final document from our attorney.
 
I want to reassure you that the mechanism in our revised CCRs by which Phase 2 homes will be irrevocably joined to our existing HOA is not in jeopardy.
 
You will receive an email announcing the new meeting date. And we will post all relevant documents (Proxy Form, Absentee Ballot, CCRs & Bylaws and a summary of the changes) on our website for your review.
 

On behalf of the Board, I regret any inconvenience this rescheduling has caused you.
 
Sincerely,
 
Greg Gorman
President, Katy Lake Homeowners Association, Inc.
