FHA Board Meeting Notes – Jan 11, 2016









To keep everyone up to date on what the FHA Board has been doing, here’s a bullet list of the important and interesting things that happened at the January 11, 2016 Board Meeting:


  • As we had no meeting in December, the Executive Committee approved payment of $789.00 premium for Directors and Officers Liability Insurance. The board ratified this expenditure.
  • We renewed our Sausalito Chamber of Commerce annual membership for $206.50 plus a requested donation of $25.00.
  • Emails were sent to the Dock Reps and to the entire community about renewing or joining. 
  • The website has been updated to include all our new Board Members. New member packets are also available for dock reps to download and provide to new neighbors.
  • Teddie Hathaway reported on recent Richardson’s Bay Regional Associations regarding the management of the anchorage in view of the growing number of anchor-outs. See RBRA and Sausalito City Council at Loggerheads and Police Chief – Anchor-out Meeting for more details.
  • Teddie and Wilford Welch agreed to invite elected officials to meet the floating homes residents. The first event was scheduled for February 28 (Community Meet and Greet). Invitations to future events will be emailed to the entire community.
  • It was agreed that the Environmental Committee would purchase household compost bags to hand out to interested attendees at the Annual Meeting. In addition, Bay Cities Refuse and Zero Waste Marin were invited to provide a 10-minute presentation, with additional handouts.
  • The Board agreed to charge $50.00 for advanced tickets to the 9/14 Annual Tour, absorbing the Event Brite charges. Walk-ins will be charged $60.00. We will allow 500 advanced sales tickets and 100 walk-in tickets.
  • Future newsletters (Floating Times) will be posted on the website, and a link will be emailed to the entire community.
  • Katherine and Linda Sempliner are planning a Policies and Procedures Manual covering every Board activity. When this is complete, it will be put on Drop Box. Katherine will start with the file for the Annual Meeting.
  • It was agreed to form a task force to review and revise the FHA by-laws. Richard Pavek will chair, and Louise Simpson, Henry Baer and Flo Hoylman will also join the task force.
