CORY LAKE ISLES PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATION MANAGER RORY HARDING, LCAM I hope everyone is looking forward to the spring. Thank you for all of those who have been working on getting their roofs cleaned the past couple of months. The Board appreciates all of the work the residents have been putting into their properties. The community has really worked hard at keeping Cory Lake Isles the premier place to live in Tampa Bay. I have had only a couple of issues that have been brought to my attention. I just wanted to remind our parents to make sure the kids are staying on their property and in the play areas in the community. I have had a few complaints of kids going into neighboring screened lanais and that could be a dangerous situation. Thank you for your cooperation and help in this matter. I would also ask that we continue to make sure we are picking up after our pets in the community. This would also be the time of year that we are getting all of our pressure washing done before the summer showers start. Thank you again for all of your cooperation and hard work. Please remember I am always available by e-mail or phone should you have any questions or concerns.

What is it? Neighborhood Watch is a group of volunteer citizens coming together in a community, communicating with each other and the police to reduce crime in the area in which they live. We are the citizens behind the “eyes and ears” of the police. How does it work? Neighbors watching out for neighbors. Police officers on patrol don’t always know who lives or belongs in a particular neighborhood. Neighbors who live in the area can help the police by calling when they observe suspicious or criminal activity. They can also assist their fellow neighbors by calling and alerting them too. The key to a successful program is COMMUNICATION and COOPERATION between citizens and police! How do I become involved? If you are interested in learning more, and possibly volunteering, please email Sheryl Springer:

Community Development District was held on February 18, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. at the Beach Club, 10441 Cory Lakes Drive, Tampa, Florida. A review of the January minutes was held affirming that the CDD Board consented to some items contained therein. The committee was pleased to receive the up-to-date financials on February 12th. We thank the CDD Board and Wrathell, Hunt & Associates for responding favorably to our recommendation. However, the financials that we were provided were in a General Ledger format which is very verbose and we recommend that WH provide the up-todate financials in standard summary P&L format. Last month, the committee recommended that the Board require that the year-to-date budget include a column for the expected year-to-date percentage expense by category. However, it was not presented at the January CDD Board meeting, so it will be tabled by the Finance Committee until the up-to-date P&L is provided and discussed thereafter. Committee discussed that due to savings in the operational budget there is approximately $75,000 remaining in the capital budget. Further discussion entailed requests by residents for a volley ball court. Also, discussed was the possibility of the gym renovation being much less expensive than $85,000.

January Meeting Minutes The Finance Committee Meeting of the Cory Lakes Community Development District was held on January 21, 2016 at 12:00 p.m. at the Beach Club, 10441 Cory Lakes Drive, Tampa, Florida. A review of the November minutes was held affirming that the CDD Board consented to some items contained therein. THIRD ORDER OF BUSINESS Using Periscope for Broadcast of CDD Meetings Suggest testing this along with GoToWebinar. If it is a better alternative it will save the community about $100/ month. Reviewing Monthly Year-to-Date Budget If the budget distributed with the January Packet is for December then the timing is considered OK. If it is actually for November, then the committee recommends that

regarding sports amenities, the suggestion of semi-mobile soccer nets was made. The committee assessed the gym location onsite. The committee will offer a recommendation regarding these sports amenities after further research. March Meeting Minutes The Finance Committee Meeting of the Cory Lakes Community Development District was held on March 4, 2016 at 12:00 p.m. at the Beach Club, 10441 Cory Lakes Drive, Tampa, Florida. A review of the February minutes was held affirming that the CDD Board consented to some items contained therein. The committee recommends that the CDD Board look into having TECO switch out our street light bulbs to LED lights as a cost saving and beautification process. The committee recommends that the CDD continue the theme of an athletic park across from the club house and develop a running path along the perimeter of the park with some outdoor permanent fitness equipment. The committee recommends to the CDD Board that the night time rover should be based out of the Morris Bridge Gate and rove from there every night of the week. While WH did provide the GL statement of Feb 24th on Feb 25th, the P&L was still not provided. The Committee emailed WH asking why.• KEM Media Group 813-501-4894


The Landscape/Aquascape/Facilities Committee Meeting was held on Friday, February 26, 2016 at 10:32 a.m. at the Beach Club

Rich Carpenter, LAF chair, showed a PowerPoint presentation of about 50 slides showing where plants were missing in the rose beds along Cory Lake Drive and around the palm trees and between the azaleas at the Cross Creek entrance road. The missing plants should all be covered by warranty and should all be reinstalled at no cost to the community. The committee voted unanimously to recommend that the CDD Board give LMP, the landscape company, 30 days to complete the planting of all the missing plants, and that the Board provide follow up to the planting to be sure that it is completed satisfactorily. Rich continued the PowerPoint presentation with several slides showing missing and damaged plants at one of the islands in Cory Lake Drive that had been damaged sometime around New Years. One tree, even if it could be salvaged, has still not been replanted, and its roots are still half exposed. It’s been two months without any improvement on this landscaping. The committee voted unanimously to recommend that the Board request LMP to replant and repair the island asap. A committee member noted that two cedar trees are blocking the Cory Lakes sign at the Cross Creek entrance at the monument. The committee voted unanimously to recommend that they be replanted to other areas. Dennis DiGiacomo, committee member, reported that he had received an email from Cyril Spiro, Board chair, explaining the reasoning that the streets were not being swept by the city. The note stated that the roads in Cory Lake are private roads, that residents do not pay the storm water fees to the city because the drains are privately owned, and that thus the city does not do street sweeping within Cory Lakes. The email further stated that because the CDD is a form of government, the roads are considered public. Dennis pointed out that it seems incongruous that the roads could be both private and public. Until now the community has heard “opinions” from an attorney who stated that the roads are public and from city employees who stated that the roads are private. John Hall, Facilities Manager, mentioned that when the developer got permits for the roads, the roads were permitted as private. The committee voted unanimously to send a recommendation to the Board to find out definitively the determination and request its attorney to get a court judgment as to whether the roads are private or public, as it effects not only who is responsible for their upkeep, but also on the security that can be KEM Media Group 813-501-4894

provided to residents. Since sweeping of the streets by the city is not an option, the committee discussed cleaning the roadways. Rich pointed out that at the last CDD Board meeting, it was reported that Republic, the trash hauler for Cory Lake, had agreed to clean the roads because of all the oil their truck had dripped while collecting yard waste. Although, no specific date had been established for doing the cleaning because testing was still being done. The committee decided to hold off on making any recommendations for road cleaning. However, it was noted that the sidewalks and gutters along the roads are dirty and mildewed and need cleaning. Mentioned was that they should all be done approximately at the same time so that there was consistency of look throughout the community. The committee approved unanimously the recommendation to the Board that all the sidewalks and gutters throughout the community be cleaned. Rich showed several slides of chairs at the pool with mildew on them. The committee voted unanimously to recommend to the Board that the chairs be cleaned. Rich reported that the skate park resurfacing has been completed and looks great. Next up for resurfacing is the basketball court, which should begin soon. Dennis motioned a recommendation to the Board to have the pool slide shut down at the same time as the pool closing. Apparently the slide shuts off prior to the closing time, even though children are still there playing in the pool. The committee didn’t understand why the slide would need shutting down prior to the time of the pool closing. The committee approved the recommendation unanimously. The committee discussed holiday decorations. Linda Foster, committee member, invited Valerie Romas to visit the Beach Club on March 7 at 9:30 to discuss the decorations, as she had spoken to her about the purchasing of decorations for use. Valerie has had experience decorating such businesses as Neiman Marcus and Reeves automotive. The committee will visit with Valerie to get ideas of what to purchase and where to buy the decorations, and to see whether Valerie would have any interest in helping with the decorations. Rich reminded the committee that we have been given a sum of $10,000 for the rest of this year for the purchase of decorations, and that the monies for lighting have yet to be requested in the budget for next year. Rich mentioned to the committee

that he wanted to recognize the work that John Hall the new property manager has been doing. All of the maintenance recommendations that we have been making to the Board are being taken care of by John. And in addition, he’s been doing things like upgrading the lights on the street monuments, as well as repairing the landscape lighting along the Morris Bridge entrance. The notes presented by Rich from the Board meeting of Feb. 18 are as follows: 1. Cyril Spiro, Board chair, will not be running for his seat on the CDD in

ends of the basketball court and install a cement surround prior to the resurfacing. 7. $6,000 was approved for an electronic sign to replace both of the signage boards at the Beach Club entrance. 8. The Board asked for costs to install a lighted sand volleyball court. 9. The Board asked for costs to install a sidewalk at the western end of Capri Isle. 10. The Board asked for the cost to install 4 fountains in the lake and ponds. 11. The Board agreed to purchase 2 recycle bins for use at the pool. 12. The Board requested John to look into

The new tennis court construction is completed. Once the sidewalk has been installed, the courts will be open for play. Landscaping still needs installation.

The skate park has been resurfaced and repainted. New goals and nets are on order to replace the broken and rusty ones.

November, as he is running for a city council seat instead. 2. The Board approved 3 proposals totaling nearly $90,000 for the repair of the brick roads. 3. At least one or more proposals for running the cafe will be presented at the next Board meeting. 4. Tennis court construction is completed. A pedestrian path is to be installed next week. 5. $11,000 for refinishing the existing tennis court in order to match the new one was not approved. The Board requested the cost for cleaning the court. 6. $6,000 was approved to saw cut the

the rust mitigation system for the wells to prevent any further rusting of monuments and sidewalks. 13. Rich thanked the Board on behalf of LAF for the cleaning of the lake and the conservation areas. If you have comments or suggestions for the LAF committee, please e-mail them to: And if you’re looking to help us by being on the committee, please join us at 10:30 on the last Friday of the month at the Beach Club.

What to Plant



Annuals: New varieties of coleus do well in sun or shade and provide vivid colors and patterns for months. Bulbs: Planting early-, mid-, and late-blooming varieties of daylily will insure months of color from these low maintenance plants. Herbs: Add nasturtiums to your herb garden. The leaves and flowers add a peppery zest to salads. Vegetables: Continue planting warm season crops such as bean, cantaloupe, and okra. Mulch well to prevent weeds, and provide water if the weather has been dry.

Pests: Monitor landscape plants weekly for aphids on tender new growth. Flowering Plants: Check for thrips if leaves and/or flowers of gardenias and roses are damaged. Divide perennials and bulbs: Divide clumps of bulbs, ornamental grasses, or herbaceous perennials to expand or rejuvenate garden beds or to pass-along to friends. Lawn Problems: Many lawn problems, such as lack of water, mimic insect damage. Confirm the damage is being caused by insects before applying a pesticide. Shrubs: Choose from a wide variety of shrubs to add to the landscape now. Lawns: Apply fertilizer after new growth has started. Choose a fertilizer (not a "weed and feed") with little or no phosphorus unless a soil test indicates the need for it. A fertilizer with controlled-release nitrogen yields longer-lasting results.

Proceeds from the Duck Derby go to local and international projects that our Rotary Club sponsors. Page 14 • APRIL 2016
