Line of Credit
Cathie Lenz moved that we renew the line of credit for $600,000 that is presently in place at 1st United Bank. Iris Anastasi seconded the motion, which was unanimously adopted following the following information from Cathie Lenz: Our current line of credit dates back to March 2005 and is scheduled to mature on July 20, 2011. It is secured by a blanket assignment of the Association’s assessment rights. The Bank has no rights to individual unit owners’ property. There are no loans outstanding under our existing line of credit. First United is prepared to renew this line of credit for a two (2) year period (unless precluded from doing so by pending financial legislation to limit such renewal to one (1) year) at the rate of one quarter of one percent per annum ($1500.00). As a renewal, the bank would not have to assess document stamp duty fees and would charge a fee of approximately $250.00 as a renewal preparation fee. There are no restrictions as to how this loan may be used, e.g. can be beneficial for emergency repairs in the event of hurricane damage, general operating expenses, etc.
Adjournment -A motion was made by Eileen Bendis and seconded by Eric Berkowitz to adjourn the meeting at 4:10 p.m.
