Status report on future additions to website

Some members have asked for the minutes of the Board’s meeting on March 21, 2020; those minutes will be posted when provided to your webmaster.

Some members have asked when they will receive their letter advising of the HOA dues assessment details for the newly adopted assessment year that begins July 1, 2020 and ends June 30, 2021.  That letter will be posted to the website when provided to your webmaster, and will be emailed to all members who have authorized email to receive notices from your HOA.  Other members receive it by regular mail.

For now, here is a summary:

The Board of Directors passed a new budget for the fiscal year starting July 1, 2020 and ending June 30, 2021, a new 12-month budget period.  The new assessment amount for the entire fiscal year is $2,444, or $1,222 every six months, payable on/before July 1, 2020 and January 1, 2021.  This is an increase of $392 for 12 months.

Everyone who paid in full last December (or early January) for 2020 has one-half of their $2,052 payment applied to the first half of 2020, and the remaining half – $1,026 – is a credit against the $1,222 due by July 1, leaving $196 due from these members for the first payment in the new fiscal year.  Anyone who only paid half previously ($1,026) has no credit to apply to the July 1 payment, and that means $1,222 is due on/before July 1, 2020.  [No information is available yet for those who wish to make a single payment for the entire assessment period.]

Member votes at annual membership meeting

At the annual member meeting held on February 29, 2020, the membership voted:

  1.  Not to further pursue the 55-plus proposal studied by the Board as requested by the membership at the 2019 annual member meeting.  No further action on 55+ is contemplated.  Other means of ensuring continuity of the current community culture will be examined by the Board, but not 55+.
  2. Authorized the Board of Directors to pursue contract compliance and good workmanship as it relates to a particular contractor hired to make repairs after Hurricane Irma.  Complaints include unfinished or improperly finished work.  Authorization granted includes pursuing legal remedies if necessary.
  3. Not to set any specific reserve accounts at this time.  The Board was directed to prioritize large predictable future expenses and develop cost estimates for such maintenance and repair items.  The Board will report on their findings at the 2021 annual member meeting, at which time the membership will be asked to adopt or reject one or more of the Board’s recommendations for specific reserve account funding as part of future annual dues assessments.
