All homeowners have been mailed a proposed 2024 Budget!

Dear Owners of the Village at Pebble Lake Townhouse Owners’ Association, Inc.:

Our Homeowners’ Association fees pay for the services and amenities we enjoy in this community. As you know, every owner in the Village at Pebble Lake has partial ownership in all of the common areas within the Village. As representatives of the owners, the Board of Directors is charged with maintaining or improving the common areas within the community. We all share in the costs through the assessment fees.

The Board of Directors also has a fiduciary responsibility to ensure the Association’s finances and reserves are sufficient to cover long-term costs such as maintenance, repair, and replacement of our capital assets over their lifetime. A previous Board hired an external firm to create a reserve study to advise it and future boards on the customary and appropriate levels of reserves needed for a community of our size and asset types. Based on that study, we have increased our reserve budget this year and will likely need to do so in the future.

Therefore, the Board of Directors has determined that our assessment will need to increase from $156 per month in 2023 to $170.50 per month in 2024. This includes a $3.00 increase per home in the reserve amount, as required by the reserve study. It also includes a $11.50 increase in the operating budget, to cover vendor increases due to inflation. Please know that the increase is not taken lightly. A copy of the proposed budget for 2023 is attached and has been mailed to all owners at the address on file.  All owners are encouraged to review the budget and email any questions, suggestions, or concerns to Kirsten, our community manager, at Kirsten@acswest.org. There will be an Owners’ Forum during the meeting where owners may also address the Board directly concerning the budget.

The Board of Directors of The Village of Pebble Lake Townhouse Owners’ Association, Inc., will hold a Special Meeting to approve the proposed budget for 2024 thirty (30) days from the date of this letter. (11.10.2023).  This meeting will be held Thursday, December 14 at 6:30 pm at the clubhouse.

The Board of Directors will continue to do everything in its power to control expenses and find the most cost-effective ways to maintain the quality of life in the Village of Pebble Lake.

Sincerely,
The Board of Directors of the Village at Pebble Lake:

Christopher Spahr, President
Lori Gates, Vice President
Rob Nease, Secretary

The board will vote to approve the budget

ALL parking out front is on a first come first serve, there are NO additional assigned spaces. Regardless of how long you have parked in a spot or it’s relation to your townhome, there are no other assigned/reserved spots.

Towing will be enforced; towing is at the owner’s expense.The HOA towing company is Peaco Towing. Signs are posted at the entrances of the community. Please contact the HOA Board with any questions: president.board@pebblelakehoa.com

Why You Should Always Pick Up after Your Dog’s Poop 

 1. It’s A Matter of respect for people and the community. Cleaning up after your dog is always the right thing to do. It’s unfair to other residents to leave your dog’s poop laying around.  No one likes to step in poop and take it into homes, cars and businesses. If you’ve ever tried to get dog poop out of the treads of your shoes, you know how infuriating it can be.

2. It’s bad for the environment. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies pet waste as a toxic pollutant and places it in the same category as chemical and oil spills. The EPA estimates that just two days’ worth of dog waste from about 100 dogs would contribute enough pollution to close a beach and all watershed areas within 20 miles of it.

Stormwater carries dog poop directly into waterways. Dog waste contains nutrients and pathogens that harm local waters by depleting the oxygen in water necessary for beneficial underwater grasses, wildlife and fish. In addition, dog waste decomposes in waterways releasing nutrients that cause excessive growth of algae and weeds. The water becomes murky, green, and smelly.

3. Dog poop poses a health threat to people and pets. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention dog poop can contain parasites and germs that can be harmful to humans. In particular, roundworms and hookworms deposited by infected animals can live in the soil for long periods of time and be transmitted to other humans and animals.

In addition, veterinary experts at Drs. Foster and Smith say that giardia and E-coli can be transmitted from feces to people and dogs. Dogs can also spread or contract parvovirus or coronavirus through infected feces.

4. Dog poop is not a natural fertilizer. One of the top reasons people give for not cleaning up after their dogs is a belief that dog waste is natural and good for the Earth, according to the Humane Society of the United States.

However—unlike cow or horse manure—dog waste is not good for the soil. That’s because cows and horses are herbivores, whereas dogs are omnivores, and their diet is high in protein, say experts at Practica, a pet waste management company. In fact, dog waste is so high in nitrogen and phosphorus it can burn grass if not picked up.

5. It takes dog waste a long time to decompose. Many people who don’t pick up after their dogs believe that it’s no big deal, because the poop will quickly decompose.

This is not true. According to Clear Choices Clean Water, dog poop can take up to a year to break down depending on the climate and the dog’s diet. And even after the poop breaks down the bacteria and parasites remain in the soil.

6. We’ve made it easy for you! There are multiple dog waste disposal stations around the grounds.  We even supply the bags!  Please make use of them and we’ll all have a cleaner, healthier community.  Thanks!
