2022 Rental program
Resolution of Rental Policies- Rob presented the Resolution of Rental policies after the result of much analysis and discussion with the Board. The rental program is not making enough money to sustain itself. In 2021, PPOA received a return of $0.88 on every dollar spent on the rental program. Thus, PPOA pays for people to rent cabins. The Resolution states that PPOA will charge new rates and rent the following common properties during the 2022 season: the Lodge,
Lakeview, and Caretaker on the Island, along with the campground. Closure of rentals will cut expenses so we can concentrate on more profitable rentals.
After discussion, Michelle made a motion to accept the Resolution as presented. Joe seconded. Discussion was opened. Rick stated his thoughts and motioned to include the rental of the Cedarwood and Cabins 1 and 2 to the Resolution. The motion failed. There was no further discussion. Michelle conducted a roll count vote. The motion passed 4 to 1.
