Report of Rental Committee by Joe Noonan
Motion for unanimous consent that large meeting rules be used, and that the rental committee report be taken uninterrupted, followed by questions with no debate, followed by discussion using Roberts standard rules. Amended to allow four rounds. Unanimous consent was obtained.
Presentation: Rental committee researched the questions sent to them. Attorney’s opinion was that limiting the rental program that BoD should proceed cautiously. Some owners had purchased with the understanding that the rental program could provide income.
A contact with real-estate professionals was made. Their advice was that the number of renters should not be limited but that renting more than 50% of cottages may make it difficult to get financing, and that the rental program is very attractive to potential buyers.
Biddeford Bank advises that not more than 50% of units be rented, and to be cautious of the investor-owned unit.
Financial analysis by Bobbi was not done because it was thought that it would take many hours of work because of the complexity. Committee believes that there was a profit of $35,000 during the 2020 season.
