Alligator Point-Saint Teresa Association

Board of Directors Meeting

April 13, 2019




The April meeting of the Alligator Pt-St Teresa Association Board of Directors was called to order by President Marvin Heymann at 11:21 am on Saturday, April 13, 2019, at Mission by the Sea Church on Alligator Drive.  Board members in attendance:  Heymann, Houston, Murphy, Rippee, Lewis, McCord, McMillan, Osborne and Novak.  


Approval of Minutes:

Motion by Osborne, seconded by Novak to accept the March Board of Directors minutes as distributed, was adopted without objection.


Approval of Treasurer Report:

Rippee reports renewals are coming in but have yet to be deposited.  Mission by the Sea has asked APSTA to carry liability insurance for meetings they hold in the church.  We need to confirm that our current Directors & Officers policy doesn’t already have a hold harmless clause.  A liability policy for APSTA would cost approximately $426/annually.

Motion by McMillan, seconded by Novak that in the event there is no hold harmless clause in APSTA’s D&O policy, APSTA will pay Mission by the Sea the necessary amount to add additional liability insurance to their current policy, was adopted without objection.

Motion by Houston, seconded by Novak that APSTA should look into having an attorney on retainer to consult when issues regarding the local community arise, was adopted without objection.

Motion by Novak, seconded by McCord to accept Treasurer's report, was adopted without objection.


New Business:


McMillan spoke to the Sheriff regarding the current placement of speed limit signage.  Sheriff Smith told him he should speak to the county commissioners regarding the relocation of signs.  McMillan also supports the creation of a local Community Watch program with participants having some level of enforcement authority.


President Heymann clarified recent Board member changes.  Sean Kearns and Mike Lester resigned their seats on the Board in February.

Heymann will distribute a copy of the APSTA By Laws to each Board member at the May meeting to review and determine whether a By Laws Revision committee is needed.

Heymann activated the Elections committee and appointed Novak as Chair.


Houston expressed his desire to not serve as First Vice President.  He will resume his former role as Second Vice President.  With the unanimous support of the Board, President Heymann appointed Novak First Vice President and Houston Second Vice President.






There being no further business, Novak made a motion to adjourn that was adopted without objection.  The meeting adjourned at 12:07 PM.



Respectfully submitted,



John Murphy, Secretary
