Summer in Rancho Solano has been beautiful! But autumn is just around the corner and with the cooler temperatures and changes in the leaves on the trees comes the nearly annual process of the election of Board Members.
Of the seven-person Board, there are four members who will either seek another term via balloted vote or resign their positions. This means that candidates seeking to be elected to the Board will be competing for four slots.
If you are not on the Board of Directors but would like to and feel you’re up to the challenge, this is your chance.
Membership on the Board of Directors is for a three-year term. The Board of Directors is responsible for all aspects of operating the Association, including the budget and selection of the various vendors that provide services to the community. The Board works closely with The Kelly Company who is currently Rancho Solano's property manager.
The Board of Directors meets once each month, with additional meetings called on an occasional, or "as needed," basis. Although not required, it is hoped that each Board member will take an interest and actively participate in one of the seven HOA committees: these include the Security Committee, Traffic & Security Committee, Architectural Review & Landscape Committee, Website Committee, Neighborhood Watch, Landslide Trust, and the Park Committee.
The deadline for Board candidate applications is Wednesday, August 31 by 5:00 pm. An application is enclosed in the August edition of the HOA newsletter; applications may also be obtained from the Homeowners Association office. Completed applications should be sent to Jodi Adams, The Kelly Company, 183 Leisure Way, Vacaville, CA, 95687. Ballot packets will be mailed to homeowners in mid-September, and completed ballots must be received no later than Wednesday, October 19.
Ballots will be opened and counted beginning at 5:00 p.m. on October 20 with results being announced at the Annual Homeowners Meeting which begins at 7:00 p.m.
Any questions about running for and/or serving on the Board of Directors, or regarding applications should be directed to Jodi Adams, Rancho Solano Property Manager, (707) 455-4201, or e-mail email@example.com.
