OTHER:

The most important item on the agenda is to approve an AAPOA budget for 2021.  The proposed budget is very similar to the current 2020 budget and contains no major additions.  The biggest budgetary increase is to our insurance liability coverage, which is a required expense.  Dues remain the same.   

We will place the agenda, the budget, and a potential change to our by-laws on our website: (www.ausableacres.org) within a few days.
