Bob Owen Chairman
Les Crook Vice Chairman
Joyce Stewart Treasurer
Sandy Allison Secretary
Meeting opened at 4.30 pm
The Chairman opened the meeting by thanking everyone for ‘holding the fort’ during his absence and allowing him an almost interruption free break
Shirley Ann Fisher had made a request to speak to the CLC about a meeting with CRA members to discuss opportunities for investments and pensions etc.
It was decided to suggest to her, that if she still wanted to do this, the best way forward, would be to hold perhaps a ‘Cheese and Wine Party’, which could be published on the CRA website but could not be misinterpreted as a CLC recommendation
The meeting with CRA members who live on Sector A
Chair said that we had achieved what we set out to do: i.e. which was to offer our members on Sector A assistance and advice about the re-activation of the Entity.
Chair said that while the new Steering Committee currently consists of CRA members, it is NOT a sub-committee of the CRA. Its aim is to represent the whole of Sector A, not only CRA members, if support for its intentions is shown at a Public Meeting to be held in January
However, the CRA is willing to offer defined financial support to assist with start-up cost
This financing will be as follows
110.00 € Printing of letters to A Sector homeowners
50.00 € Contribution towards hire of Room for January meeting
10.00 € Cost of setting up web site
15.00 € Sim Card for Mobile Phone
185.00 € Total
These figures represent the full and final total of the CRA’s contribution.
Joyce Stewart reported that as at 5.11.10 there is 20288.63€ in the bank, of which 6450.34€ is general fund, 13838.29€ is legal fund, and a further 211.59€ is cash in hand
Entity Bye Laws
Vice Chair said that some three months has passed since approval was given to our lawyer to form a draft of bye laws for B C &D, and felt that should be enough time for a least a first draft to be drawn up
Chair is to contact Ana Vivancos asking for a progress report
Secretary is to contact Jackie Galvez regarding update on the seizure of Masa Bonds, and Rambla/ Hydrografica situation
Abril 28 Licences
Vice Chair said that he had written to Masa, offering to distribute any outstanding escrituras and/or licences, but had not had a reply.
This will be an on-going project.
The CRA Currently has 2299 members
Sector A 308
Sector B 444
Sector C 452
Sector D 1070
SA enquired if the Council had ever been approached about providing more re-cycling bins for plastic, and cardboard, especially on Sectors C & D, to prevent the continual overspill around those on Sector B.
Jose advised that these bins are provided by a private contractor, and the Council should be willing to give contact details of the company involved. He said he would also have a word with his Brother-in-Law, who works for the Council
Secretary to email Jackie Galvez, to find out the contact details
SA asked if the condition of the road at the bottom of B20 had been brought to the attention of Santiago, as the road was virtually impassable on one side of the road.
Chair promised an update after the next meeting with Santiago, which will be sometime after the 22nd November 2010
J S reported that the CLC had bought a piece of wall art for Mary Cooper, as a thank you for her work on the committee. Mary was delighted with the gift, and had expressed her thanks in an email.
Any Other Business
John said that the water leak on D Sector had been repaired, and that all of the surrounding pavements had also been completed
Jose suggested that maybe a food bank could be organized, to help many local people in dire poverty. While there are other charities seeking food donations, his thought is that it could work on the principle that if people went on holiday, or back to the UK, any food that they would not be using, could be donated, and then passed on to the necessary parties, rather than be thrown away
Jose is going to enquire at the Business Centre for a contact, who can help organise this project.
There being no other business, the meeting closed at 6.30 pm
Date of next meeting TBA
