Board members present: Smith, Custead, Miller, West, Constantino,
Call to order: 10:32am Lynne Partridge, ChairI. Update: Water has been leaking from the pump house for the past
few days. It is currently being repaired by Somerset Well Drilling- not
sure how long this will take. It was discovered that the HOA
communication between Somerset and St Martins concerning this
repair was inadequate. Therefore in the future there will be multiple
Board members involved in water pump/pump house issues. Lead
will be Bill Custead; Keith Miller will back him up on days he is not
available. More members will be added if needed.
- Bill will arrange a meeting with Sharp (and any other Board
member who wants to attend) to discuss long range plans,
replacement equipment etc to prevent these water emergencies
from occurring until we are on the County system.
- Keith will arrange a meeting with Delmarva Water as a second
- Lynne will reach out to Ruth Waters and Mary Beth Carrozza to
expedite our connection to County water.
II. Pool: According to Ken at Premier Pool the pool is safe for swimming
if the floor drains are visible, i.e. discolored but not cloudy. A sign was
posted to that effect.
III. Notify County to expedite Water project:
- Lynne sent an email to the County (7/4/23) written by Bill, requesting
that plans, permits, other needed info for water/sewer be sent to St
Martins by the Bay.
IV. Wetlands Damage and Environmental complaint: Discussion
concerning the illegal phragmites control in front of townhome 22.
- This damage has been reported to the County Environmental
Department. While the damage was done by an owner, the land is
owned by the HOA and therefore the HOA is liable for fines and
remediation. Will await direction from the County inspector.
Meeting Adjourned: 11:10
