             LEISURE VILLAGE EAST OPEN MEETING
             MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES
                       AUGUST 26, 2020
     In compliance with N.J.A.C. 5:20-1.2, notice of the Open Meeting of the Board of Trustees was given by
notice filed with the business office of the Association, August 12, 2020. Also, this notice was on the Associa-
tion website and various one calls were made. All those in attendance, 105 residents, were to sign in due to the
Covid-19 pandemic per the advice of legal counsel.
     Meeting called to order at 7:10 p.m. by Barbara Finn, LVE Board President. Those present were Lois Miele,
Rosemary Robertson, Jack Lampman and Howard Brown. Susan Relles and Suzanne Rafter were excused.
Also in attendance were Jan Kasyjanski, Community Manager and Cindy Blank, our Office Manager and
Secretary to the Board.
     A motion was made by Howard Brown, seconded by Rosemary Robertson to accept and omit the reading
of the minutes of the Open meeting of July 30, 2020. Minutes are on file in the Administration office. All were
in favor. Motion is carried.
     There was a motion made by Rosemary Robertson to accept the contract for L&L Paving for milling
and installing asphalt on Thornhill Court and Administration office parking lot. The cost of this project is
$242,457.88. This motion was seconded by Howard Brown and then a roll call vote was taken and all approved
so the motion was carried.
     The Board appointed Pat Nichols to the ADR Committee. The Board also appointed Michael Fletcher to
the Architectural Committee. Thank you for volunteering and best of luck in your new responsibilities.
     Jan Kasyjanski’s Manager’s report included the following Fall projects throughout the Village: paving

     During the Trustees’ reports, Jack Lampman, who had been appointed to be the CORA liaison, announced
he will be having his first meeting for CORA on Wednesday, September 2 at 10 am on the upper deck at the

wanted to be a sponsor and have their names in this special book, they can get a sponsor form from Adminis-
tration office and pay $5.
     During the Residents’ question and answer period, the Board answered the questions which were submitted

time about personal concerns.

                        TREASURER’S REPORT
                     FOUR MONTHS ENDED 7/31/2020
    Actual Operating Fund net income was $47,000 less than the budgeted amount. The reasons for the unfa-
vorable variance were as follows:
• Actual Operating Fund income was $29,000 less than the budgeted amount due to:
      o The real estate office has not been open for 4 months due to the pandemic. The budget is $2,000
       per month.
      o Actual maintenance revenue was $8,900 less than the budgeted amount because the Maintenance
       Department is only doing emergency repairs during the pandemic.
      o Due to the pandemic, there was no Recreation Revenue. The budget was $4,900.
• Actual Operating Fund expenses were over the budget by $18,000. Some of the significant negative variances
    were as follows:
      o Tree trimming exceeded the budget by $18,000. The budget was prepared based on the costs for the
       9 months ended 12/31/2019. There was another $29,100 expensed in the last 3 months of the prior fiscal
       year and was not taken into account when preparing the 2020/2021 budget. Due to increased storm
       activity this year including the lightning storm, this line item will likely continue to be substantially
       over budget.
      o Landscaping supplies exceeded the budget by $17,100. The community manager does not anticipate
       any large purchases for the rest of the fiscal year. The 12-month budget is $28,600.
      o Grounds safety equipment exceeded the budget by $9,400 due to the extra expenses related to the
       pandemic safety equipment purchases.
      o Replacement Fund and Fixed Asset expenditures of $76,200 charged to the Operating Fund.
• Some of the significant offsetting favorable variances were:
      o Total salaries and benefits expense of all departments was under budget by $52,000. Two union
       positions and one non-union parttime position were eliminated during the month of April. In addition
       one employee was on disability for five weeks.
      o Actual pool expenses were $9,900 under budget because the pool has not been available to the residents
       due to the pandemic.
      o Actual Recreation Department expenses were under budget by $7,900 because Barton Hall has not
       been open to the residents due to the pandemic.
• Accounts Receivable - The unpaid receivables increased $10,600 for the first 4 months of the fiscal year and
    $5,300 just for the month of July. The increase may become more significant in the future depending on
    Congress, the possibility of a “second wave” and the banks’ foreclosure process.
