Summary of 2015
 
Many of our residents participated in the Summit County brush pick up program last summer for the second year in a row. We love this community spirit. The summer road was graded again this year. Your board of directors and many of your neighbors attended Town of Breckenridge, Planning Commission and Town Council hearings on the master plan for the McCain property. Due to continued popularity, we have acquired and installed another bank of mailboxes at the base of Fairview.
 
Our website at www.silver-shekel.net was updated a year ago. If you have not done so already, you should request access to our member’s only area of the website.  In the member’s section, you will find our membership directory, financial information and minutes from our meetings. While in the member’s only area, please review and update your contact information, so we can continue to reach you.
 
Plans for 2016 
 
Your board has met and approved the budget for 2016.  We expect to provide the same services for the unchanged $30 annual dues as recent years.  The Association’s fund balance at December 31, 2015 was $15,217. See the full version of this article for A budget summary. The deficit budget of $6,319, caused primarily by extraordinary legal expense associated with the business of our Special meeting, is covered by our accumulated surplus. For questions on association finances, please contact our treasurer, Rich Rafferty, or any member of the board.
 
We expect to conduct our annual clean-up, summer road grading and annual block party / meeting again this year. You will receive email notice of these events. More information is already available at our website. Your board has set tentative dates for these events as follows.

Special Meeting - Consideration to Adopt Colorado Common Ownership Interest Act
Saturday, February 20th, 10:00 a.m. at 512 Shekel Lane, Breckenridge, CO
The Silver Shekel Owners Association is holding a special meeting on Saturday, February 20, 2016, 10:00 a.m. at 512 Shekel Lane. All members are encouraged to attend or return their voting proxy with their dues payment, before February 20, 2016, or via email to raffertyrich@gmail.com. The purpose of the meeting is the election by the Association to have the provisions of the Colorado Common Interest ownership Act (CCIOA) apply to all of the future affairs of the Association.  The relevant Colorado Statue (C.R.S. §38-3.3-188).
 
As we have shared with membership in many forms over the last few years, the current Declarations of Protective Covenants (Covenants) were adopted, one for each filing 1, 2 and 3, in the late 60s and early 70s and have not been amended since. The board of directors has polled the membership and evaluated methods to bring our foundational documents in compliance with current Colorado law. After consultation with the Association’s attorney, the board has adopted a resolution recommending that the Association is treated under CCIOA. The board recommends this action as the most expedient and cost-effective means to bring our foundational documents in compliance with current Colorado law and assure the continued legal recognition of the association. If the membership elects to have the provisions of the CCIOA apply to the Association will be deemed to be subject to the same duties, restrictions and penalties and have the same powers and privileges as an association established after June 30, 1992.  The board does not intend to change any fundamental rules, dues or operations of the association. The specific matter before the Association membership is the following:
 
The Silver Shekel Owners Association, Inc. (“Association”), pursuant to C.R.S. §38-33.3-118, hereby elects to be treated under the provisions of the Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act, C.R.S. §38-33.3-101, et seq., as amended and supplemented from time to time (the “Act”), a copy of which is attached hereto.  In the event of any conflict between the provisions of the Declaration of Protective Covenants for Silver Shekel, a Real Estate Subdivision, recorded on October 30, 1967, under Reception No. 108051 in the records of the Summit County, Colorado, Clerk & Recorder, the Declaration of Protective Covenants for Silver Shekel No. 2, A Real Estate Subdivision, recorded on July 26, 1968, under Reception No. 110065 in the records of the Summit County, Colorado, Clerk & Recorder, and the Declaration of Protective Covenants for Silver Shekel No. 3, A Real Estate Subdivision, recorded on September 4, 1970, under Reception No. 117430 in the records of the Summit County, Colorado, Clerk & Recorder (the “Declarations”), the provisions of the Act shall govern unless otherwise specifically excepted by an amendment to the Declarations.
 
If you have questions on the subject of this special meeting, please contact any board member or come to the meeting with your questions. Names and contact information for all board members are available on the association's website www.silver-shekel.net.
 
 
2016 Neighborhood Clean Up Day
Saturday, July 9th, 8:00 a.m. - Noon
The 2016 Silver Shekel Annual clean Up day will be held Saturday July 9, 2016.  One dumpster will be placed on each of the three filings beginning around 8:00 a.m. on the first filing and continuing immediately thereafter on the other two. Dumpsters wil be removed in the same order beginning approximately at noon.  Dumpsters will be placed approximately mid-way on the length of each street and approximately the same place as in previous years.  Tree trimmings and other slash will not be allowed to be placed in the dumpsters until after 11:00 a.m. No hazardous waste (tires, batteries, paint, petroleum products) will be allowed in any of the dumpsters. The dumpster on Shekel Lane will accept large appliances.  Refrigeration units will be accepted if the coolant has been drained and properly tagged.  Alternatively you can make payment to Timberland Disposal ($35) to have the coolant drained from your waste refrigeration unit.
