PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE March turned out to be a very rainy month but with rain brings the promise of new life! I hope by the time you receive this newsletter the bluebonnets are in bloom and our gardens and trees are once again flourishing! As the weather improves, many of you might be planning some outdoor updates to your yard or home, I would ask that if you plan to make any big changes in your yard or the exterior of your home, please contact the HOA manager to file the appropriate ECC proposal forms to request approval of any changes before you begin. We are noticing a trend of many homeowners who have failed to update their electronically paid HOA dues for 2015. We have a small group that has continued to pay the old amount of $45.00 the past two months. We are hoping to avoid the time and expense involved in personally notifying these homeowners that dues have increased $2.00 per month to $47.00. If you don’t use the coupon book that was mailed to you and pay electronically thru your bank, please update your payment provider so that your account will be up to date. Please contact Jesse and ask him to take you off the mailing list for coupon books. Towards the end of February we received the results of our 20 year infrastructure study from Bufkin Engineering. The Board members reviewed the report and have set out to develop a plan to address the elements of the study that were found to be of concern. Over the next few months, we will develop a plan based on the study report and seek bids for any work required to maintain or repair the infrastructure in question. Finally, I would ask that pet owners take responsibility for their animals. There have been numerous complaints of dogs barking incessantly. Also pet owners have been identified walking their dogs and not cleaning up after them. Please clean up after your pets, as nobody else wants to. Best Regards, Bryan Harter Cat Mountain HOA | President

APRIL 2015 MANAGER’S REPORT

Restoration of Common Area northern end of Mountain Villa Cove Several years ago, to aid the construction of a new home, the Board of Directors authorized the temporary access through the Common Area in order for construction material and vehicles to access the site. To limit access to only activities associated with the construction of the new home, a temporary barrier consisting of posts and a chain was installed. The chain was locked and the owners of the new house being constructed were required to call the Manager when access was needed so that the Manager could unlock the chain. Recently, the four homeowners adjacent to that portion of the Common Area requested that the Board restore the area with plants and remove the temporary posts/chain barrier and block further vehicular access since construction of the new house is completed. The Board of Directors designated one of its member to take charge of the project to restore the area with some plants as well as removing the temporary barrier and replace it with a permanent one. The designated Board member evaluated the area and in consultation with the Association's landscape provider, had the following work completed: • Planting of 5 3-gal size Primrose Jasmine. • Removal of the wooded posts and chain • Placement of 3 large boulders. • Removed 1 cedar tree and trimmed back other cedar and oak branches overhanging the parking lot. • Hauled off dead branches and tree cuttings. The work was completed and was a success based on the favorable feedback received from residents.

CAT MOUNTAIN BOOK CLUB

Join the next Cat Mountain Book Club Discussion April 21, 6:30 PM at the Cat Mountain Clubhouse where they will be discussing The New York Times bestselling novel: Rules of Civility by Amor Towles Editorial Reviews: Amazon Best Books of the Month, August 2011, Set during the hazy, enchanting, and martini-filled world of New York City circa 1938, Rules of Civility follows three friends--Katey, Eve, and Tinker--from their chance meeting at a jazz club on New Year's Eve through a year of enlightening and occasionally tragic adventures. Tinker orbits in the world of the wealthy; Katey and Eve stretch their few dollars out each evening on the town. While all three are complex characters, Katey is the story's shining star. She is a fully realized heroine, unique in her strong sense of self amidst her life's continual fluctuations. Towles' writing also paints an inviting picture of New York City, without forgetting its sharp edges. Reminiscent of Fitzgerald, Rules of

Knowledge, Integrity, & Hard Work.

Civility is full of delicious sentences you can sit back and savor (most appropriately with a martini or two). --Caley Anderson Also, Save the Date for Tuesday, May 19 where local author, Ernie Wood, will be joining the book club to discuss his book, One Red Thread: When architect Eddy McBride, a fortysomething self-absorbed noticer of details and selfappointed seeker of truths, stumbles upon a way to visit, watch and ultimately participate in events from his family history, he finds answers to long-ago tragedies and mysteries. But each time Eddy returns to the present, he unleashes the unhappy consequences of exploring history on his family and friends. And as Eddy's knowledge of the past grows, he turns from curious seeker of truths to frantic fixer of mistakes--present, past and by those from the present who would change the past--as he follows a devastating trail of hurt, disappearance and death. To see a reading Mr. Wood did in mid-February at Malvern Books here in Austin search “Novel Night at Malvern Books February 12, 2015 pt. 2” and “Novel Night at Malvern Books February 12, 2015 pt. 3” on YouTube. More details to come in the next issue! The Cat Mountain Book Club, established in 2012, invites new residents to join us at any time and new members are always welcome and encouraged.

GET MORE FROM YOUR GARDEN Raspberries require little care to grow, but can cost a lot at the store. You can even freeze them. Mixed salad greens, like baby lettuce and arugula are tough and quick growing, even after cutting. If you cut them correctly they will grow again. Start at one end of your garden and cut plants about an inch from the ground. The plant could grow back 3-4 times in a season. Flat gardening was popular years ago, but now raised beds are much better. They prevent weeds from taking over, let water drain more efficiently and plants thrive in aerated soil. A very common error in gardening is over watering and drowning plants. If it rains at least one inch per week, you can probably skip heavy watering. Purchase a rain gauge (under $10) at garden stores to keep track of how much or how little water your plant is getting and add or subtract from there.
