Dear Indian Hills Owners:
The Board of Directors for Indian Hills Home Owner’s Association met Saturday, March 25, 2023 as part
of our quarterly meeting cadence. Minutes from each Board meeting, which constitute the official report,
will be posted in draft form on our web-site within 30 days after the meeting. The minutes are saved in
final form after they are approved at the next scheduled Board meeting. The purpose here is to provide a
quick update soon after the Saturday meeting.
Items discussed during the March 23rd Board meeting include:
Gail Riggins, President of the Board, Departure. Ms. Riggins sold her unit and therefore can no longer
serve on the Board. Bryan Miller will replace Gail as President. In recognition of Gail’s contribution to
the Association over the many years of service, a brass “recognition” plate will be provided on the bench
at Mill Camp. Jim Kooler, former Board member at large, will now serve as Vice President.
Snow Removal Expense. Indian Hills, like all Lake Tahoe owners, is experiencing very high expenses for
snow removal due to the historic snow pack this winter. Given the severe post-Covid labor shortage, we
can thank CAMCO for arranging service early and providing good coverage this winter. While we have
benefited from low expenses for snow removal over the previous last 4 drought years, nature has a way of
course correcting over time. Cumulated snow removal expense will be reported at the next Board
Painting and Entry Stair/Deck Staining Plans for 2023. The Association will complete the exterior
painting cycle (two remaining buildings) this summer. The front entry stairs and walkways will also be
stained this year. Owners will be notified by CAMCO prior to commencing work.
New Front Entry/Stair Design and Budgeting. Now that the rear-deck upgrades are complete, attention is
turning to upgrades of the Front Entry & Stairs. Design concepts have been received and a budgetary
estimate will be obtained this spring/summer in order to update the Master Plan and 2023 Reserve Study
with more precise cost information.
General Maintenance and Landscaping Activities. Once the snow clears, siding repairs will continue for
areas identified in the July 2022 inspection. A seasonal maintenance program and budget was approved.
Owners with specific maintenance issues are encouraged to reach out to CAMCO. Given the high
expense of active landscape irrigation and limitation of encouraging plant growth in a high fire risk forest
environment, we will revisit hardscape alternatives for the property. Owner’s interested in participating
in the landscape committee can reach out to Steve Anderson (email@example.com).
Open Board Seat. With Ms. Riggins departure, the Board has a vacant seat. If you are interested in
serving on the Board for the remainder of the term through September 2023, please reach out to any
There was no executive session for the March Board Meeting. The next Indian Hills Board meeting is
scheduled for June 17th .
Thank you for your time,
Indian Hills Board
