Essential Agenda Items to be Discussed
at General Membership Meeting 
Property Owners Association of Arundel on the Bay
Saturday, November 23 
10 a.m. - noon 
Anne Arundel County Library 
Eastport-Annapolis Neck Branch 
 269 Hillsmere Drive, Annapolis, MD 21403


Neighbors, please come to our community's fall general membership meeting on Saturday, November 23, to see and hear what's going on in our neighborhood. We have a very full schedule, so our usual half-hour coffee session will be cut to about 10 minutes.  

To streamline, please read the last quarter's meeting minutes so we don't waste time watching everyone's lips moving in unison. Just click here. 


After we amend and approve the minutes, we'll get on with an abbreviated Business Meeting including really short reports from your president and treasurer. Detailed records of past activities are readily available on our website. Again, just click here for all the meeting minutes.

Then we're scheduled to hear from Bonnie Johansen, and possibly a techie or two, about what BGE has done so far to help mitigate another crippling power outage of the type we're all too familiar with.   


Next, we're very fortunate to have Anne Arundel County's new Police Chief -- Kevin Davis -- who is very anxious to build better relationships with all of our county's citizens. Our neighborhood has a few issues that we're trying to deal with before they get to problem stage and I'm sure you've already noticed an increased and very welcome police presence in AOTB as a result of these improved communications.  


After a few remarks, Chief Davis will be open to your questions.  As I already have, you will find his intelligence, frankness, and extreme professionalism both refreshing and encouraging!  

Next we'll be asking for your input into 2014-2015's budget allocations. Sure, we have the usual needs for road repairs and such, but, as with our new playground, what other community assets might you like to see in the AOTB budget?

Finally, with only 10-15 minutes purposely allocated for this issue, we'll entertain discussion about the current property claims being brought against AOTB by some neighbors and highlighted in a previous e-mail blast. Click here for a reminder. We can't go into specific legal strategy details under the advice of our legal counsel, but we can attempt to clarify matters if necessary.  

In the unlikely event that we still have time, we can discuss anything else, and if necessary, continue in the parking lot when the librarians kick us out. Just don't think we're shortchanging any issue, we're just doing the best we can with the time we have.
