  • one-year operating budget for October 2008 – September 2009.
  • five-year funding requirements plan for years 2008 – 2013.

Revenues:
 
CHPID#1’s Board of Directors approved one-year operating budget of $379,110 represents a decrease of approximately 4 percent (%) over the current year’s operating budget of $394,725.  This decrease is mainly explained in the projected decrease in interest income, along with a slight projected decrease in PID assessments. The Board based these revenue totals on the realized values for the 2007-2008 year, The proposed assessment rate remains at $0.10 per $100.00 of assessed property value which is unchanged from October 1998’s initial assessment rate. As with previous budget submissions, CHPID#1 assumes City’s contribution remains unchanged from last increase in budget year 2000-2001.  The Reserve fund is carried over from the current budget year.  NOTE:  the Reserve fund may “grow” depending on continuing declines in water usage due to extensive Spring rains.  Foreclosures are a concern and remain a “huge unknown” even though they will be eventually be collected.  Foreclosures and other delinquent payments impact on CHPID’s “cash flow” during the budget year.
 
Expenses:
 
    Administration/Operation. 
  1. Code Enforcement Services – unchanged.
  2. Police Patrol Services – unchanged.
  3. Water and electricity – increased based on past and projected usage as well as new areas serviced.
    Maintenance/Landscaping.
  1. Base Maintenance Contract decreased from the 2007-2008 budget. This reflects the removal of fees for tree pruning. The contract covers services previously funded separately – seasonal flower plantings and tree maintenance, and additional areas serviced in The Reserve, Phase III, and the Joint Venture site – Flameleaf storage tank.
  2. Holiday Lighting – increased for additional lighting and at new locations.
    Capital Improvements.
  1. The Securit Camera program will go live in July 2008. The Board has earmarked funds to expand this security measure in the upcoming fiscal year.
  2. High Pointe Fence Enhancement – Improving the drive up appeal of High Pointe’s major streets has been a point of empahsis of CHPID#1 since inception. Capital Improvement funds will be distributed to complete fencing on High Pointe Lane and Strauss Road.
  3. Landscape Enhancement – Additional trees and flower beds are targeted.
  4. Hardscape Enhancement – Decorative stop signs, benches and pads are planned for various sections of High Pointe. The Board looks to replicate the “Old Town” feel, seen in downtown Cedar Hill.
Reserves:
 
CHPID#1 expects to maintain and carry over reserve funds of $91,595 from 2007-2008

HPPID Board changes Directors

During the regularly scheduled meeting of the HPPID Board of Directors on Thursday, April 10, 2008, Board President Michael Quildon announced that At-large Director Marlene (Maggie) Kroft-Knedler had resigned from the Board for personal reasons.  President Quildon acknowledged Director Kroft-Knedler and thanked her for her long support of both HPPID and The Meadows Homeowners Association.  Director Kroft-Kedler was one of the original petitioners which led to the establishment of Cedar Hill’s first public improvement district in October 1998.

Board President Quildon submitted Creekside resident Gerald Andrews to fill the remainder of the term of office of Director Kroft-Knedler.  The term of office for the At-large Directorship runs until September 30, 2009.  Quildon pointed out that Mr Andrews had stood for election to the HPPID Board for the last two elections.  Mr Andews, who was in attendance at the meeting, acknowledged his willingness to serve on HPPID’s Board.  The Board voted unanimously to appoint Mr Andrews and to submit his name to the Cedar Hill City Council for confirmation in accordance with HPPID’s By-laws.  

A hearty “thank you” to departed Director Kroft-Knedler and  “welcome aboard” to new At-large Director Andrews.
