January 2018  ~ Happy New Year!
 
Here's wishing you the very best for the New Year---health, happiness, and success in all of your endeavors.
 
There are several important pieces of information that we would like to convey to you as the year begins.  The first involves the safe use of our entry gates.  Through the series of video cameras, we continue to observe individuals proceed through the gates, exiting/entering in the wrong direction!  In recent weeks, there have been several close incidents where serious "head on" accidents could have resulted.  Please enter your neighborhood safely, and have your guests enter, through the gates in the designated direction. And, wait the additional 7-8 seconds for the exit gates to open before leaving the community.  
 
Another key key issue is the Association's budget.  The Association's Ad Hoc Budget Committee has spent an extensive amount of time analyzing the HOA budget for the upcoming 2018-19 fiscal year.  The Committee focused on establishing reasonable expenditures---and made every effort to reduce expenditures where possible.  In the end, the Committee, faced with annual inflation and certain rising expenses, came to the conclusion that quarterly assessments needed to increase slightly. Keeping in mind that over the past several years assessments remained fixed despite rising costs, the proposed increase is from $154 per quarter to $169.50.  This represents a monthly increase of $5.17.  The matter came before the Board of Directors at the December meeting on the 14th.  As the Association Board, we are obligated to maintain fiscal solvency and responsibility to the Association. The Board voted to approve the small increase in quarterly assessments.  This decision will be formally announced soon and the complete details of the budget will be distributed (by U.S. mail) to homeowners in February.  
 
The matter of the very expensive newsletter also was addressed.  The Board voted to only publish the newsletter on a quarterly basis. Following this January newsletter, the next one you will receive will be in the month of April.   This move will save the Association tens of thousands of dollars.  In addition, the Board will, on an ongoing basis, review potential cost-savings measures.
 
Finally, we encourage everyone to make use of the Association's website which contains very useful information about our association.  The website is located on the Internet at: www.ranchosolanohoa.com.  However, to access this information, one must register on the website.
 
Best Wishes for 2018!
 
Dennis Beardsley, President
Robert Schuster, Vice-President
