President’s Message: Thanks for a great season
For the final edition of this summer-season newsletter, I am really at a loss for words. I understand this is hard to believe! So I am closing with the assurance that the board will stay the course, follow through on important initiatives and keep in touch in the offseason.
You will see in the “Save the Date” section on Page 3 that I have scheduled two town hall meetings for next year for an opportunity to gather and have open discussions less formal than our regular association meetings. I will continue to keep you posted on the activities of special committees and welcome your continued comments and questions.
My personal thanks to each member of the board and chairs of special committees for serving with passion, humor, and patience.
The best is yet to come!
Also, there has been some talk amongst some year-rounders and locals to plan for a final pot luck later in the fall. If you think this is a good idea, please write to a member of the board or check in at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tax interest adds up
We know that tax receipts this year are impressive. For you stragglers, look at how quickly interest can add up over time. Waiting to pay your taxes means more money out of your pocket.
Do the Math
• Taxes due July 1
• July 30: Grace Period ends.
• July 31: 1.5% interest assessed.
• Aug. 1: Additional 1.5% interest assessed for August.
• Sept. 1: Additional 1.5% interest assessed for September.
For each subsequent unpaid month, an additional 1.5% interest will be added the first of the month for a total of 18% per annum. Please note that partial payments are applied to interest first and then principal. Statements of accumulating balances will not be sent out monthly. As a courtesy this year, September statements will be mailed to past due members. If you have any questions, please contact Brenda Armstrong, tax collector.
Watch your email for further information. (If you are not on our email list, please send your contact information to email@example.com.)
