November 2nd Elections: City Council District 10 Incumbent Harry Griffin and Challenger Stephen Bowden both will attend the Food Truck Event this Thursday, October 21, 2021, at the Pool Recreation Area, 5 to 8 pm. The candidates are using their free time to meet Village Green residents.
This VGHOA event was arranged to give residents a chance to "Meet the Candidates" and discuss your concerns about the future of Village Green and District 10 as a whole. Don't forget to vote on Election Day, Tuesday, November 2nd.
Annual Meeting Location: This is pending, but we will meet in person this January 19th. Nearby churches and schools are unavailable due to the Covid virus. It may be necessary to find a location a few miles from Village Green, as allowed in the Bylaws. Space is needed for about 70 attendees. If you have an idea, please contact Leidy Gray at the number, or email in our letterhead above.
Annual Budget for 2022: Estimated cost for operating the HOA have increased by over 12% for next year, about $28 per homeowner. The largest item increase by far is cost for maintaining the Common Area at about $19 per homeowner. All other items add about $9 per homeowner.
Your Board voted to increase the annual homeowner assessments by only 4.35%, from $230 to $240, or $10 per homeowner. The $18 difference per homeowner will be covered by a drawdown of Operating Fund reserves, minimizing the 2022 assessment increase as required in the Bylaws.
Billing will be sent in early December. Assessments are due January 1, 2022 and subject to late fees and interest if not paid by January 31, 2022. The approved Annual Budget will be sent to all homeowners in early December once all vendors are confirmed.
Annual Audit: The Bylaws required Annual Audit for 2020 has been completed with no findings of inappropriate handling of homeowner assessments and that the HOA operates as required under standard U.S. GAPP accounting practices. The audit draft was approved by the Board and will be posted to the villagegreensc.com website when the final report is received.
Fall Village Green Yard Sale: Only 17 of 639 homeowners participated in the October 2nd Village Green Yard Sale. Next year’s Board of Directors will decide if a spring event only is of more interest.
Construction in Sweet Bay and Oak Leaf: AT&T will be installing fiber optics in these sub-divisions starting soon. AT&T will be placing door hangers to announce the specific dates. Most activity will be in the Common Area with hopefully minimal disruptions.
Annual Halloween Best Decorated Homes: Judging for this annual event will be Saturday, October 30th and results for each subdivision posted in the November Newsletter.
We still need Board of Director Nominees: Last month’s call for up to 5 nominees to run the business and social affairs of the VGHOA only produced a couple of interested homeowners. Attached is a Candidate Profile to be completed if you are interested. Nominees will be elected at the January 19, 2022 Annual Meeting, but need to be nominated by December 1st to be included in the materials mailed to all homeowners prior to the meeting. Get involved!!
