Hot Town, Rumors in the Village

Related imageThis is not a reference to the Stage III fire restrictions that go into effect Friday. When a rumor is flying around the Village, it’s only fair that everyone get in on it. This rumor involves the agenda for the June 21st Annual Meeting.

Apparently someone is under the impression that the Declarant will be turning over the Association at this meeting. Furthermore, a new Board of Directors will be “selected”.  And finally, the Association is broke.

Let’s break this rumor down. The notice of the 2018 Annual Meeting was posted on the blog on May 10. The notice is going out via mail today. The notices include the agenda for the meeting. For your convenience, below is the agenda for the 2018 Annual Meeting.

  • Call Meeting to Order
  • Introduction of Board Members
  • Approval of 2017 Annual Meeting Minutes
  • Completed Projects in 2017
  • Open Forum
  • Adjournment

There is no agenda item for the Declarant to turn over the Association. No election of Directors is on this agenda.

The 2018 Annual Assessment was posted on the blog on November 15, 2017. A link to the 2018 budget is available on that post. The Village People website also contains the 2018 budget. In addition, a visit to the Village People website will reveal all 2017 financial information including the balance sheet, income and expense statements, and the reserve statements. You are encouraged to visit the website. The financial information is under the section labeled “Governance”. Those reports account for every penny of Association money. An examination of those documents makes it clear that the Association is financially healthy.

Rumors can be entertaining. Rumors can be distracting. Rumors can cause stress to Members of the Association. It is human nature to get caught up in rumors and perpetuate them. However, there are people who hear rumors and use common sense to determine the truthfulness of the rumor. The above information is meant to give people the tools to determine the truth of this particular rumor.

She Said What?! The Truth About the Sewer Plant

Rumors1There is yet another rumor floating around the Village. This one relates to the sewer and it has nothing to do with “flushable” wipes (metaphors notwithstanding). This rumor concerns an assessment and some are insisting that the statement was made at the Annual meeting.

It is true that the City of Show Low has expressed interest in acquiring the Village sewer lift station. The City has done an initial inspection and has asked that some things be done so that the lift station complies with City requirements. This has been an ongoing negotiation and the Board has been preparing for the transfer.

In 2015 the Association foreclosed on Lot 30 in Unit 4 for non-payment of dues. The declarant had a mortgage on the lot. This meant that the Association would have to make payments on the lot until it was sold. However, “the declarant forgave the loan as a contribution to the Association to help with the costs to prepare the sewer pressure line and lift station for City acceptance”. This statement came directly from the 2016 Annual Meeting packet under 2015 Accomplishments. If you look at the meeting packet for the 2016 Annual Meeting or if you review the 2016 Annual Meeting Questions and Comments, nothing of this nature was ever said.

It is also true that there have been expenses to maintain the pumps as has been stated here. If you missed that, please refer to “Let’s Talk Dirty – As In Sewer” and “Toilets or Your Money – Pick One”. These costs are related to ongoing maintenance and have nothing to do with preparing the sewer pressure line and lift station for City acceptance. Associations levy assessments when there is an emergency and not enough money to cover it or when the Association has not collected enough over the years to build an adequate reserve fund. Neither of those things is in play in the Village.

The rumor that the Association will be assessing $50,000 (or any amount, for that matter) to prepare the sewer for City acceptance is false. You will only be paying for ongoing maintenance, which, incidentally, is in your budget. Remember that rumor mongers only derive pleasure when someone believes them. Rumors should be flushed down the toilet along with other detrital material.
