CPOA and Chautauqua Corporation Hold Meetings This Weekend

no thumb

Saturday will feature back-to-back meetings of the Chautauqua Property Owners Association and the Chautauqua Corporation. The meetings will take place at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m., respectively, in the Hall of Philosophy.

Bill Neches, president of the CPOA, said the business meeting will feature various presentations from committees of the CPOA.

The CPOA presenters will also talk about the projects it supports, including providing two examination tables to the Westfield Hospital Chautauqua Health Care Clinic.

“Last spring, they asked us if we’d be willing to donate two new examination tables and we did,” Neches said. “We also donate money each year to the Chautauqua Lake Association, the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy and last year we joined the Chautauqua Lake Alliance and we support Westfield Hospital.”

CPOA will also introduce two new projects that they haven’t done for a few years: a “Living in Chautauqua” booklet and surveys of property owners.

The booklets will be handed out, detailing items property owners or renters should know about the town. Those who receive one are encouraged to provide feedback before the booklets are revised and handed out next season.

Surveys were to be distributed electronically at the end of Week Seven, inquiring about various issues for property owners. Paper copies will also be available, with the deadline for those submissions being at the end of the season. Electronic submission will extend past that date, Neches said.

The meeting will also recognize members of the CPOA board, committees and Class B trustees, including Greg Miller, whose term is ending.

Neches will also be introduced as the CPOA’s official nomination for Class B trustee. The official election process, however, will take place at the Corporation meeting.

Ballots will be handed out to vote on Neches or Markie McCarthy, a property owner who self-nominated.

The results of the vote will be announced during the Corporation meeting.
