Last year, we had $30,000 surplus in the fund that is unassigned.  Tim suggested that we allocate surplus funds in a Master Plan. It was suggested that we not change funds in accounts until a Master Plan is made.  Note: the By-Laws state that the HOA cannot spend more than $2000 without Board Approval.
