Quorum not met, POA urges voters to turn in ballots


One-third of the voting power must return their ballots or be present at Annual and Special Meeting of the Members in order for the meeting to be held. The total number of ballots needed to meet quorum is 1,535. The total number of ballots received at the time of print is 1,101; 434 votes are still needed to meet quorum.

The POA urges members to turn in their ballots even if they don’t want to vote. If quorum is not met on May 11, it may result in an adjournment, which will cost the Association money. Members who do not wish to vote should mark their ballots “quorum purposes only.”

Three of the five seats on the board are up for election. The two year terms of Bruce Yarbrough, Eric Spitzer and Edward “Ted” Horton will expire on May 11. The candidates for the 2017/2019 Board of Directors are Tom Nathan, Phil Hawgood, Paul Chenette and Michael Harris. Their resumes can be viewed on the POA website at canyonlakepoa.com.

The Canyon Lake Property Owners Association notice of Annual and Special Meeting of the Members will be held on Thursday, May 11, at 9 a.m. in the Holiday Bay Room at the lodge. Members should bring their POA ID card.

The purpose of the membership meeting is for the members to elect three directors for the POA Board of Directors for a two year term each, provide response to an advisory vote regarding amending the CC&Rs on fence restriction and to provide response to an advisory vote regarding amending the CC&Rs on three-wheeled, energy efficient, motorized vehicles.

Ballots were mailed to members on April 11. Only primary members may vote. Monday, May 8 is the last day to recommend a homeowner mail a ballot.

Mailed and hand delivered ballots to HOA Elections’ office must be received no later than Wednesday, May 10 at 5:00 p.m.

Ballots may be submitted at the membership meeting at the lodge on May 11 between the hours of 8 and 9 a.m. Ballots must be delivered no later than 9 a.m.
