Board Activity Report-April, 2014



-TREE REPLACEMENT - A total of eight (8) new trees are being added to landscaped areas to replace trees that have died. They are a mixture of Live Oaks, Pines, and Redbud trees depending on the location. In addition, several stumps along Royal Shores Drive have been grown where we lost dead or scrawny Wax Myrtles

-WATER WELL RENEWAL PERMIT FOR 2014-15 - The Harris-Galveston Subsidence District has approved the renewal permit for RSCA's two water wells for July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015. The permitted volume is 4.2 million gallons....most of which will be paid for by using Water Wise credits and/or the purchase of surplus water from other permit holders at substantial discounts off the price normally charged by the Subsidence District. Due to the size of the maintained property owned by RSCA, our total water consumption via our well waters and COH metered water normally exceeds 6 million gallons annually. The savings from the use of various credits with the Subsidence District will save the Association at least $10,000 off the standard Subsidence District price which, in turn, will assist in financing the Constables Patrols and Tree Replacement.

-2013 AUDIT AND TAX RETURN COMPLETED - An audit of the financial records of the association for the calendar year 2013 has been completed and the 2013 tax return will be filed soon. Audits for 2009, 2010, 2011 were completed late in 2012; the 2012 audit was completed in early 2013. All audits were satisfactory.

-PIER REBUILD AND SECURITY LIGHT COMPLETED - The replacement of the deteriorated pier at the Pier Park and the installation of a security light to illuminated the pier from dusk to dawn have been completed. The objective of the light is to discourage unwanted visitors at the pier and to reduce the incidents of vandalism and trashing at the Pier Park.

-CONSTABLE PATROLS - The Constables continue to patrol the Royal Shores area on a random schedule. Since this program began early this year, we have noticed decrease in activity on our property. Warning slips and traffic violations have been issued. While this effort will not eliminate the problems caused by destructive individuals, we believe it is a worthwhile expenditure to protect the community. As a Board, we encourage all residents to report suspicious activity to HPD by calling 911 or the non-emergency number, 713-884-3131. In addition, HPD tends to respond more quickly if the concern is "suspected underage drinking" or "suspected underage drug use."
