The holiday season is upon us, so my greeting to our Membership will be all encompassing. I received a Facebook posting from my good friend Mary McGrady and it included the following holiday wishes “Happy Hanukkah”, “Merry Christmas,” “Joyous Kwanzaa,” and “Happy Holidays.” The post stated “I will not be offended. I will be thankful that you took the time to say something nice.” These sayings I believe may be appropriate to many of you, as I’m sure there are many more which apply. My best wishes to all our Members. I also pray that you have safe travels and a Happy New Year.
Our Nature Center/Bait Shop construction is coming along great. The roof is on and soon we’ll have it buttoned up for interior work. It’s cold outside, but wonderful being out here in paradise. The roads have a lot of deer crossing, so keep an eye out for them and be safe. The mild weather we’ve had recently has allowed staff to complete some of our trail improvements. We have completed the initial phase of the 2018 budget process and the Board will be voting on the assessment levels at our December meeting. The recommended assessments are to remain at $1,230 for lots with sewer services, and $1,105 for lots without sewer services in 2018. Work on the budget will continue after the first of the year, with the final figures to be approved at our March Board Meeting. A lot of work was performed by our ESAC Department in order for the Board of Directors to enact our current year’s abatements. Needless to say, our staff has done a fantastic job in keeping our facility and resources operating optimally.
The Board will be making appointments at our December meeting for all our standing committees and review boards. These appointments will be for a four year term. I would like to preemptively congratulate the new appointees and thank all our Owners who were willing to make the commitment to Woodhaven’s operation.
Board of Directors President
