Continuing Business 
1. Mowing Bids – Bids by Silver Lining and Sandoval reviewed were much higher than our current contract with Classic Lawn Care.  Classic Lawn Care has a 3 year contract with Westover Woods. A motion was made by Cheryl Simpson to have Classic Lawn Care complete the 3rd year in their contract.  2nd by Bob Stewart.  Motion passed.
2. Edging – After discussion, several things were agreed by the board a.) A contractor needs to have liability insurance to do work for the community, so Bob Knopp’s bid will be voided;  b.)  Notify Rob Cox with Classic Lawn Care to cease their edging service in 2017 and  c.) Find a new contractor for edging, if possible for the budgeted amount.  Mike Lowden will ask Silver Lining, contractor who recently did entrance landscaping, if they provide edging services and if so, get a bid.
3.  Pedcor Trees - Several homeowners have expressed concern for the maintenance of the trees along the fence line owned and to be maintained by Pedcor Properties. Ella Johnson has volunteered to draft a letter to Pedcor Properties.  Board agreed to ask Ella Johnson for her help in drafting a letter since she knows the history of the Pedcor lawsuit and their agreement of maintaining the trees of concern.  Karen will write and send a letter to Ella and other homeowner in response to their concern about trees.
4. Beautification Projects by Mike Lowden – Agenda for short and long term projects were shared with board and will be shared at annual HOA meeting in November.
