Dear Home Owner,
The Board of trustees of your HOA is calling a “special neighborhood meeting” to
discuss the pending increase in our dues from $195.00 to $220.00
We would like to review with those in attendance the many reasons we feel we must
raise our dues by the allowed 15% not only for 2011 but for the next few years.
The major issues facing our HOA and neighborhood in the future will require increased
budget reserves. Some of those include; new Ohio State Law Sec. 5312.06; management
of HOA to comply with new Ohio law; neighborhood storm drainage upgrades and maintenance;
tree and shrubbery maintenance and replacement; and general reserves for future needs.
We will not be able to discuss each area in depth but we feel it necessary to let
everyone have the opportunity to show up and be involved. We will continue to hold
monthly officer meetings the second Saturday of each month at 10 a.m. We welcome
your participation at those meetings.
The special meeting will be held this Saturday, November 13, from 10:00 to 10:50
a.m. At the Genoa Township Community Hall, 5111 South Old 3C Highway, Westerville.
Sincerely you HOA President,
