Old Business


  • Poor condition of a house on Chinchilla Drive Frank stays in touch with the local branch of a Dallas Bank who owns the property. They told him they are preparing it to rent.


  • Monument Sign Henderson Landscaping maintains the monument monthly. Earlier in the year they needed to replace a shrub damaged by a vehicle.  They will change plants in the fall and decorate with lights for the holidays.  Monument spotlights remain in good condition.


  • Snow Removal There were complaints from residents about poor salting of ice during this winter season by another contractor.  Henderson submitted a bid to remove snow from Northcrest streets for the 2019 winter season.  Frank Lusch explained that Henderson has two plow trucks and has been contracted by the nearby Afton development also.  There was a unanimous vote to accept Henderson’s proposal with a few minor modifications to be discussed by Frank for the 2019 winter season.
