FROM TODD MATA
PRESIDENT OF THE HOMEOWNERS’ ASSOCIATION
Happy New Year Village at the Knolls residents!
As we kick off the new year, I wanted to share with you some news on initiatives we’re working on in 2023!
The new Technology Committee, headed up by AJ Quick, has been diligently working on scoping out the details for making our website more user-friendly and appealing for people exploring our community! As part of this initiative, we would also like to add a picture gallery that shows off the best of Village at the Knolls. We’ll be asking for digital photos that will be considered for inclusion on the website. So, get out there and start taking pictures!
Phase 2 Landscaping Project.
Based on resident comments at the December board meeting, the board members are looking at landscaping options for the new phase 2 landscaping project. Our Secretary Anne Krause will be hosting a series of informal community meetings where we hope to get your input on what you think will enhance the beauty of our community!
New Shed Project.
Currently, KVTA maintenance crew has tools and carts housed in various garages around the community. In order to provide greater security and accountability for our equipment, we are planning the construction of a new storage shed suitable for safeguarding tools and lawn equipment. Scott Ward is heading this project up and will be looking at different locations and designs which will be shared with the community.
Financial Reporting Compliance.
To provide complete transparency and accountability of KVTA financials and to ensure compliance with association financial reporting rules, I am forming a new Finance Committee which will include myself, the Treasurer and two community members. Our first project will be kicking off an audit of the KVTA’s financial statements and records. The newly created Finance Committee will oversee this and provide monthly updates to the board and community with progress reports.
Brekkie with the President.
Starting in January, I will be hosting a monthly Saturday morning breakfast where we can meet, have a donut or bagel and discuss what is going on in and around Village at the Knolls. This will also be a great time to chat with your neighbors.
Based on the last board meeting, a few residents attending the meeting asked for some background and bona fides on who I was. Here is my professional Bio.
“Todd is a Certified Public Accountant in Illinois, Colorado and Texas. In addition to being an accountant, Todd has a law degree (JD) from Loyola University of Chicago and a masters of law (LLM) from DePaul University Chicago School of Law.
Todd’s professional experience includes working for 28 years as a senior financial executive for various Fortune 250 companies, multinational consulting firms and governmental agencies.
After being a homeowner since 2016, Todd has agreed to assume the role of President and use his extensive professional skills to address the significant legal, financial and operational issues confronted by volunteer-run HOAs like the KVTA.
As the year progresses, we’ll add newsletter updates on other initiatives we plan on introducing at Village at the Knolls!
