CALL FOR BOARD OF DIRECTOR VOLUNTEERS 2018-2019
The Myers Mill Board of Directors is calling for applications of members in good standing to run for election to the Board of directors. Applicants must be named on the deed and current on all HOA dues to qualify. The general duties for directors are to enforce the association’s governing documents, collect and preserve the association’s financial resources, insure the association’s assets against loss, and keep the common areas in a state of good repair. Directors are expected to, but not limited to the following:
- regularly attend board meetings,
- review material provided in preparation for board meetings,
- review the association’s financial reports,
- uphold the bylaws and covenants of Myers Mill, and
- make reasonable inquiry before making decisions
The Board of Directors work side by side with the CMG to manage the daily operations and finances along with help plan for future years. The BOD currently consists of the following roles –
Secretary / Treasurer
Board Members also help oversee the following sub-committees: Nature Trail, Playground Research, and Activities. On average, an officer spends approximately 10-15 hours each week on board work while committee chairs spend approximately 3-5 hours per week on work. Currently all these positions are held by 7 board members. If you love this community and want to make it an enjoyable place to raise our families or live out your retirement, consider helping out by volunteering your time.
The current Myers Mill Board of Directors has voted to reduce the number of board members for the 2018-2019 term from seven to five, two of which will not be up for election since they are serving the newly adopted two year terms. Therefore, this year there will only be three positions open for election. Two of the three homeowners elected this October will be asked to serve a two year term (this is decided by vote of the board at the first board meeting, following the elections.)
CLICK HERE FOR THE APPLICATION. Applications must be submitted to Myers Mill HOA by October 5, 2018 via Sharon Green. Thank you for your consideration.
Please return no later than October 5, 2018 to:
Myers Mill HOA/ CMG Charleston

Thursday October 25th at 7:00pm
Knightsville Elementary School
This meeting will be particularly important and we will need homeowners representing approximately 318 lots to either be present at the meeting or return their proxy form before the meeting. We will be voting on not only a new board but also the special assessment needed to save our pool (and our property values).
ATTENTION IF YOU HAVE A TEEN USING THE POOL – NEW POLICY REQUIRES ACTION
As we welcome summer, we also welcome problematic issues at the pool. In the last week we have had groups of teens jumping the pool fence, popping open the gate and/or opening the gate to friends who do not have key fobs, standing on furniture, speaking disrespectfully to the attendant, and refusing to follow the pool rules. We have also had teeenagers using the key pad code instead of the key fobs. Codes that no one should have. Thursday there were teenagers acting indecently in the pool. This kind of behavior is not only dangerous, but also makes the pool an unpleasant place to be for other residents.
The rules regarding age restrictions are set for a reason. The pool can be a very dangerous place and we want everyone to be able to safely enjoy the use of the pool. We do not have a lifeguard on duty and the attendant is not a babysitter. Children age 13 and under should NOT under any circumstances be at the pool without a responsible adult. Children ages 14 & 15 may go to the pool without an adult, provided they are following the rules, have a key fob, and are acting appropriately. They are not allowed to bring any guests with them. A guest is considered another person (child) that is either not a resident of the Mill and/or a resident that does not have an active key fob. Teenagers ages 16, 17, and 18, may go to the pool without an adult and may bring ONLY ONE (1) guest with them.
To create some accountability and to make it easier to identify which teens are residents (as it is possible many of these teens are not), we are asking parents/guardians to complete this form and return it to the pool attendant or a board member. The pool attendant will have copies available and is at the pool daily at various times. As of June 16th, any teen who does not have a form on file will be turned away. We will also be giving copies of these forms to teens as they check in this week at the pool so that they can bring them home to get them completed. BUT they MUST BE COMPLETED AND RETURNED BY THE PARENT.
Thank you for your cooperation and please let us know if you have any questions. Myersmillbod@gmail.com
PROPOSED COVENANT CHANGES
WE STILL NEED OVER 180 MORE BALLOTS AND WE ONLY HAVE UNTIL SEPTEMBER.
The Covenant Committee has been working hard all year long going through the covenants. The Covenants and ByLaws that we currently abide by are the original from the developer, and with our growing community they are a bit dated and need to be updated. We have listened to community suggestions and as a committee made suggested improvements to the covenants. To amend any covenant we need 75% of the homes to vote on each covenant amendment. Included in this mailing is a document showing all the current covenants and the proposed changes to make along with a ballot. Please cast your vote and send via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to Community Management Group at 349 Folly Road Suite 2B Charleston, SC 29412. You may also turn them in at the annual meeting.
