Dues Increase Effective January 1, 2018

Effective January 1, 2018, monthly dues assessment will be $131.00. 

 

If you have previously set up an automatic withdrawal via "e-check" on the Victory Management site, you must change the amount to $131.00 after your December payment has been debited but before the January automatic withdrawal date.  This will NOT be done automatically by Victory or by the e-check system.


Annual Membership Meeting-Quorum Reached

Thanks to the outstanding effort by the Board going door-to-door to get signed proxies and homeowners sending in their proxies, the River Oaks Condo Association Annual Membership Meeting was held on Tuesday, November 28, 2017.  At this meeting, Joe Kolb and Jyl Dupont were re-elected to new three-years terms, the proposed 2018 budget was presented and, after comments from unit owners were addressed, the 2018 budget was passed as presented.  John Phelps, Solitude Lake Management , presented pond beautification options and also answered questions from unit owners.  More to follow!


Parking Rules & Regulations-Proposal Submitted to Board

The Parking Rules & Regulations committee met twice to review our existing parking rules and regulations which are nine years old. A draft update of the rules was presented to the Board at the Annual Membership Meeting.  The Board will be reviewing the proposed rules and the rules will also be presented to the community for comments in the near future.

Vehicle ID System Poll

Many communities have systems to identify owner and visitor vehicles to control parking and enforce parking rules.  River Oaks does not have a system but perhaps by associating vehicles with individual units, we can improve our parking controls and better enforce our rules while also reducing or preventing the need to tow a car in violation of the rules or when a car is parked where community work or snow removal takes priority.  This is an IDEA and not an exact plan.

 

This poll, located to the left in the sidebar, is to gauge your willingness to display a unique, randomly generated four-digit ID number inside your car and those of your visitors.  One ID number would be associated with each unit and all the cars, including visitors, associated with that unit would display the same ID number.  The Association would maintain a list of the ID numbers and their respective units and would contact the unit owner associated with the ID number if a parking violation is observed.  We are considering a static cling decal for unit owners and tenants for convenience and a professional appearance, but it could be a card or piece of paper – the method of display is not as important as displaying the number.  Visitors would display a card or piece of paper in the windshield with the ID number of the unit they are visiting or, the unit number itself if the owner can’t remember the ID number.  If a car doesn’t have an ID number visible, then they risk being towed because we have no way to identify to which unit that vehicle is associated.  Individual vehicles would not be registered with the management company.  For privacy purposes, we prefer to use a randomly generated number rather than unit numbers.  When new owners and tenants move into the community, additional decals could be provided if they are not left by the previous owners/tenants. Ultimately, the unit owner would be contacted for any vehicle displaying the ID number associated with their unit. 

ChooseEnergy.com - A Resource for Consumers

This is a GREAT resource for comparing electric and gas supplier rates/plans. Also, on the home page are BG&E Customer Service and Outage Information links and even a link to log in to your BGE account.

Choose Energy-COMPARE electric and gas rates

ChooseEnergy is an online marketplace that makes energy choices simpler and easier by enabling consumers to compare and find the best electricity and natural gas plans. 60 million households have the option to purchase electricity or national gas from retailers other than their utility, though less than a third of those households will exercise their right to do so. Energy marketplaces educate consumers on this option and provide platforms where energy companies can compete for their business.

Light Up the Community for Safety and Beauty

Please keep your lamp posts ON for safety and maintaining the visual appeal of the community. Although the rules do not require that the lamp posts be kept on at night, the Board and many in the community believe that, in the interest of safety and community pride, everyone’s lamp post should be on. When lamp posts are off, especially many in a row, the neighborhood looks dark, inconsistent, and inviting to mischief and crime. If you don't want to turn on your lamp post, please keep your house light on at night.

 

Click here for information on replacement fixtures and lamp post if yours are not working or in poor condition, or you just want to replace the brass lanterns with the black lamp fixtures.

 

Thank you from the Board of Directors and your neighbors!
