Residents gathered last night to review and vote on a proposal to increase annual dues by $20 per household. The proposal passed by majority vote. The increase will be reflected on the dues invoices that will be mailed to residents in October under the “other services” designation. The increase will raise annual operating revenue by about $10,000 per year. The new revenue will be applied mainly to landscaping enhancements, but will also be used to fund deferred infrastructure maintenance projects, social functions, and possibly a limited street snow removal service. A comprehensive review of the budget will be conducted at the Oak Meyer Gardens annual meeting, which will be held in November (exact date tba).
