Budget 2021

The board has approved the annual budget for 2021 and there will be no increase in the monthly dues. With the 2021 budget we will continue with the important maintenance for association needs, as well as the required funding for reserves. You should receive the budget package within the next few weeks.

We expect the 2021 budget is going to be very tight because we still need to pay back money we borrowed this year from reserves. We are also expecting costs to go up for labor, materials and insurance in 2021.

Garbage Cans

Please be considerate of your neighbors when you put out your garbage and recycling cans so that others do not have to move them. During the pandemic everyone is reluctant to touch cans that belong to someone else. Also, try to leave a foot between cans so the garbage truck driver does not have to leave his truck to move them. If you place your cans outside of your garage, please make sure you leave enough space for your neighbor’s cans so they don’t have to move your cans.
