ATTENTION PRIDE’S CROSSING MASTER ASSOCIATION HOMEOWNERS
The Annual Meeting and barbecue/swimming party for Pride’s Crossing Master HOA will be held on Saturday, July 25, 2015 at 6:30 pm at the Aqua Vista Pool. This is the official notice of the meeting as required by the declaration and by-laws of the Association.
The membership will elect three board members at the meeting. Shaun Marsh, Dale Slemp, and Bob Burke terms have expired. However, Dale and Bob will seek re-election.
The remaining members terms are expiring in 2016:
Each position is a two (2) year term. Any homeowner can be elected to the board and nominations will be taken from the floor. If interested, please fill out the enclosed questionnaire form, so if you can not make the meeting and still want to be considered we can present you to the rest of the membership.
At the annual meeting, the Board will formally present the membership with the annual budget– which is enclosed for your review - for fiscal year beginning September 1, 2015. The new budget calls for a five percent (5%) increase in dues, which is an increase from $222.00 to $234.00 every six months. Another way to look at it is an increase of $2.00 per month – or less than fifty cents per week.
The primary reasons for the dues increase will go towards a three-year audit, a new reserve study, and increased expenses towards Trash Services. We also completed our Fence Rebuild and Staining at costs of over $249K and added a Fence on Whitaker Circle to help mitigate vandalism and liability concerns surrounding a drainage ditch. The Board anticipates increased monies towards landscape contracts, landscape improvements, and also snow removal.
Since state law requires that the Association, as a non-profit corporation, must meet at least once per year, your participation is not only welcomed, it is important. At least 28 owners must be present in person or by proxy in order to elect new board members and fulfill our legal annual meeting requirement.
