President’s report:

  • All Halloween parade supplies have been ordered, and volunteers are lined up to help distribute treats along the south park pathway.
  • Everything is ready for Saturday’s chili cook-off and fall movie night. The movie will be the first animated Addams Family movie.
  • Stacey received an update on the memorial tree to be planted in the north park. Davey Tree is in contact with Kristle Cortés about the planting. They hope to plant it still this fall; if they do not get to it before the cold, they will plant it in early spring.

  • No report.



  • No report.


Treasurer’s Report

  • Karen was unable to attend but sent in a report that the budget is on track. For a copy of the budget, please contact treasurer@pickwickvillage.org



  • No report.



  • Mike has taken down and stored the volleyball net for the winter.
  • Mike received a new snow plow contract from Swifty.
    • The estimated prices has increased approximately 20% over last year’s contract, bringint it to approximately $9,200. This includes 13 plows, plus salting. Heavy snowfall (more than 10 inches) that requires more than multiple passes could potentially be counted as two plows. After the 13 plows, the association would pay on a per-plow basis. We did not use all 13 plows last year.
    • Mike reached out to several other plow companies for estimates. A few are not taking on additional contracts. The quotes he did receive were all in the range of approximately $14,000 to $16,000.
    • The board discussed the increase and was in agreement that, while it is a notable increase, overall fuel and labor cost have increased. The cost is still substantially lower than other quotes received.
    • The board voted unanimously to approve the contract.
    • Mike will work with Swifty to finalize the contract.
  • Mike suggested that the board purchase a small rototiller to maintain the volleyball court (and other uses, as needed). He noted that tilling twice a year should help reduce issues with bees nesting in the court. He is willing to store it in his shed for now. He will bring some specific options and prices to a future meeting for consideration.



  • New neighbors have moved into four Pickwick houses recently. Kelly will get welcoming packets to them.


Social media

  • No report.


New business

  • The board plans to hold the holiday lights judging on December 21. This is a tentative date and will be finalized at the November meeting. A flier about the lights competition will be shared with the neighborhood the weekend following Thanksgiving.
  • Stacey will begin updating the newsletter to be sent with dues notices in January. The board will set dates for 2023 activities at the November meeting.


Old business

  • None


The meeting adjourned at 7:35 p.m.


The next meeting will be at 7:00 p.m. on November 22, 2022, at 6835 Brookshire Drive
