December 4th HOA Homeowner’s Meeting

The Rivers Edge HOA will hold its annual meeting on Sunday, December 4th
at 7 pm at the Community Clubhouse.

This is an important meeting where the HOA board will review the previous
year's budget and present the coming year's proposed budget. 
We will also review last year's significant community activities 
and discuss proposed community activities for 2017. 

Of equal importance will be electing new board members. 
David Webster, the current Vice President/Treasurer and Mike Davis, 
Secretary, are both stepping down from the Board effective at the conclusion
of the annual meeting. Unless we have neighbors who are willing to step 
up and take their places, we will need to hire a management company. 
The office of Treasurer is particularly time consuming and unless we are able
to secure someone from the community who is willing and able to take on this
responsibility, the current board will have no other choice than to hire an 
outside agency to manage our HOA.

The current board is planning to again raise the 2017 dues by 10% and add the
funds created by this increase to the Roads Fund Account. However, if we do not 
have individuals volunteer to serve in the vacant board positions, these monies 
will be needed to pay for the management company. Hiring a management company 
will add from $8000-$10,000 to our annual budget.

If you have any interest in serving on the HOA board please contact a 
current board member ( and "put your name in the hat".

Please mark your your calendars for this important meeting. We look forward to 
seeing you there!!
