We recently sent the Spring newsletter. Please check your mail. It contains a meeting notice for the Annual Member BBQ. Thanks!
The Board will be meeting this month (Sept. 2016) to count absentee ballots for Board member elections, take a look at our current financial position, and other admin matters pertaining to the HOA. If you haven’t returned your ballot and/or come up to current with your dues and water payments account, please do so ASAP so we don’t have to spend volunteer time chasing them down. Thanks.
Sorry for the late notice. We are preemptively canceling today’s bbq meeting for members due to bad weather. Historically turnout for these meetings when the sun is not shining is low, and we don’t want to do all the work to line out the supplies and set up if we then have to send absentee ballots anyway. So we’re going to cut straight to a new newsletter with absentee ballots for officers. If you would like to volunteer, please contact us. Otherwise, the current officers have volunteered to run for your vote for another year.
BBQ Meeting 7/24
We have scheduled a Member Barbeque Meeting for July 24 from 3:00-5:00pm. Please note that we will be voting on officers at that meeting. More info is available in the mailing, described below.
Mailing and Billing
We are putting together a mailing to each owner with a newsletter and your July bill, reflecting the water fees increase voted into the bylaws by the membership in March. More details on the bill, along with the current budget, are in the mailing packet. You should expect this by next week.
Please save the date! March 10, 2016, at 6:30pm, we will call a short special meeting to vote on a necessary water dues increase, as expenses will outpace revenues in 2016 and dues have never gone up. We reviewed this at the January meeting, but hardly anyone showed up. Our well expenses continue to increase, as we approach pump failure and the EPA and DEC continue handing down monitoring regulations to keep us safe from E. coli and other contaminants. We are working on reserving a meeting space, and you will receive a notice in the mail as per usual.
A Hill Timber Estates Subdivision Homeowners Association member meeting is scheduled for January 16, 2016, in the afternoon. Please save the date! The Board Secretary, Roxanne, is sending out a mailing to each household to notice the meeting in accordance with our Bylaws. Hope to see you there!
