Simone will attend the Fidelity Bank to invest in the new CD. Motion
Ray indicated that he reviewed
the non compliance reports for the last 3 years and SCM has sent over 700
notices. He has narrowed it down to approximately 15 repeat
offenders. Ray proposes that the procedure in place is working with
SCMís efforts and that the procedure stay the same. There was discussion
how not to continue the violation procedure if a property changes ownership.
The violation procedure should revert back to step one.
