Mr. Rollins was asked to come and discuss with the Board what he does and how we can work with him in the future to make things easier for the Board and Mr. Rollins.
Mr. Rollins will draft an escrow account letter that will give us a guideline for asking for escrow money.
Mr. Rollins explained how he reviews a project and what he looks for that maybe a problem.
A minimum review we should have information back within 10-15 working days.
Some escrows can be calculated by roadway; for instance; subdivision with a new road constructed should be escrowed at $1.25 per foot and construction services (while the road is being built) is $3.00 per foot with $500.00 per disturbed acre and $ 500.00 per acre there after. Mr. Rollins will explain in more detail if needed. Mr. Rollins also stated that he could be present at Board meetings or be called in for discussion if deem necessary.
