I have several updates to share with everyone as we continue to achieve our goals and follow the business plan that was discussed during the annual meeting last April. Below are my updates:
- Association members can now make their homeowner’s assessment and road fund payments online! To do so, go to browningcreek.net and select “Services” from the menu bar across the top of the page. From there, simply follow the online instructions and complete the setup. Please do NOT make your quarterly sewerage payments through this online process. Sewerage payments must be mailed to the address on the statement.
- In my last message, I discussed the upgrade to the computer CPU and memory for the system that runs the gate. We have been working hard to get the database cleaned up so that it only includes current Browning Creek Association members. Based on the association address book and other records, we have almost everyone who is a member updated. However, some of you will be receiving a letter within the next week or so letting you know that we need some additional information from you about your fob and/or gate remote. Please be on the lookout for this letter and respond as quickly as possible. It is NOT our intention to prevent any current association member from gaining access to our community!
- We have posted the July and August financial statements for Browning Creek on the secure side of our website. If you have any questions after you review them, please feel free to call or email me.
- Our overall financial situation is looking better than anticipated as we near the end of the year. Furthermore, during the final closeout of the operating account with David Lane & Associates, it was discovered that we had $8,100 in the account of uncashed checks that went back many years. The Board decided to move those funds to the cash reserve account.
- The new burn pile for Browning Creek is up and running! Please keep in mind that we do NOT have the capability to process large trees. The burn pile is only for small trimmings. If you take a tree down on your property or have someone else do it, please dispose of it somewhere else other than our burn pile.
- I spoke with our attorney concerning the case against Slade Kracker. The deadline to file an appeal was October 2nd. Mr. Kracker did not file an appeal, and of course, I’m sure most of you have noticed that the road is still on his property. The judge had ordered Mr. Kracker to “remove the roadway/access and restore the property to its former condition”. Our attorney has sent a letter to Mr. Kracker’s attorney requesting that the road be removed asap. If the road is not removed, we will file a motion with the court.
Many of our neighbors are putting in a lot of time and effort to help keep our community looking great. A special thanks to everyone that helped put out all the fall decorations at the front entrance. They look great!
