Crime Watch Month helped to generate donations that currently pushed to operation cost surplus as opposed to the usual deficit.
A mailing combined to solicit Membership Dues and Crime Watch donations seems to be most effective at getting donation in support of Crime Watch.
Crime Watch information needs to be moved onto the FICRA web
Trust Financial Activity to be made available monthly.
The complete Treasurer’s Report is attached to these minutes.
The Report of Trust Balance does not show the money paid for floors because it came directly out of the money market account. This will be addended by treasurer.
Crime Watch: Ray Kittelberger for Stan Weston, absent.
Recent criminal activity includes reported Electronics stolen off a boat and the boat was also sunk (unconfirmed). Another attempt at stealing items chained to dock failed (also unconfirmed). Suspicious person late at night in a resident’s driveway. 911 was called with no responding officer. Question posed: How do we as Crime Watch get the message to neighborhood or community in situations like this?
Mailboxes hit by a truck, and the responsible party has been contacted.
A question about why some information has not been posted to web site re: recent crime was explained by Crime Watch volunteers. The information is not posted because the information needs to be reported by those property owners directly affected, validated/authorized. The concern not to report the incident without accuracy, timeliness, with details, confirmed. Calls to the hotline are returned in 24 hrs. Currently, Crime Watch has no ability to “scrub” a message submitted on-line at FICRA Website.
