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).
In order to maintain our current level of service, the association board is proposing an increase to the annual dues. The increase would raise the services assessment by $20 per household, annually. For at least the past decade, our annual dues have remained unchanged, while prices for services have increased. The increase we’re seeking would allow the association to cover the current services budget while maintaining an adequate reserve fund. Additionally, we may be able to enhance current services and/or consider new services. The proposal would raise annual dues in Oak Meyer Gardens from an average of $46 per household to an average of $66 per household.
On Tuesday, September 16th, the Oak Meyer Gardens board will hold an open meeting to present a dues increase proposal to residents. Following the presentation, residents in attendance will be asked to vote on the proposal. Residents must be present to vote, and one vote will be counted per household represented. The meeting will be held at 7pm in the St. Peter’s Legacy Center, located at 815 E. Meyer Blvd.
