Effective immediately, the Board has voted to add or change the following costs for all Association members:
- Transmitters for the gate (the garage door opener devices) are now $35.00 each.
- A copy of any permit(s) required per Summit County ordinances must be submitted to the Board no later than one week after starting construction. Improvements valued over $10,000 will be assessed a $250 impact fee, and any improvements valued over $30,000 will be assessed an additional $250 (total of $500). This fee is to help offset the additional wear and tear that occurs to our roads and bridge during construction activities.
- An owner transfer fee of $100 is required for properties held by Association members. This fee has become necessary because most title companies will not notify the Association of ownership transfers unless a check must be sent. Not knowing of ownership transfers has made it very difficult to maintain our billing and gate access.
- Beginning in 2021, as a token of appreciation for the effort and work our Board must undertake in running the Association, Board Directors will be exempt from the regular Annual Assessment while serving on the Board. Any special assessment will still apply to the Board Directors.
The 2020 Annual Assessments for Beaver Springs Ranch Association (BSRA) have all been sent out as of today. Many were sent via email this year thanks to the many Members who provided their email addresses. If you have not received it by email and provided your email address, please check your spam folder or other mail folders before contacting us. Otherwise, keep an eye on your mailbox this week.
When using your bank’s bill pay service, please note that the bank will withdraw your payment as soon as they print the check. It has nothing to do with BSRA receiving or cashing the check. Some bill pay services allow you to be notified when the check is cashed. Also, make sure your delivery address is updated to our current Post Office Box: PO Box 762, Oakley, UT 84055-0762. Please consult with your bank for assistance with bill pay.
We will send reminders via email to those Association members whom we have not yet received payment from as the due date draws nigh. We are not able to respond to payment receipt verification requests until after the reminders have been sent.
Finally, here is the 2020 President’s Annual Report which includes the 2019 Annual Meeting minutes and 2019 Budget report. We will send out information for the 2020 Annual Meeting in the next few months.
A reminder to Cool Springs shareholders – the yearly invoice payment is due this Friday, January 31st. Late fees of $25 will be added next week. If you have any questions, please email Nan Kemp at email@example.com (do not copy email address; you must type it as seen here).
A reminder that if you are travelling off the roads at BSR, you are trespassing unless you are on your own property.
We are seeing a lot of tracks crossing the edges of properties and some cutting entirely through properties for a little powder joy. This damages young aspens struggling to grow and replace our dying mature trees. Our trees our struggling enough without snowmobiles driving over them. Stay on the roads!
Just a few days ago, we also had a few joyriders decide to traverse the hillside above Little Dipper (photo below). One of them got in quite a pickle. Took he and several of his friends over an hour to get the machine unstuck. The group barely managed to get going before it got dark. This group was clearly trespassing.
Minutes from the 2019 Annual Meeting are now available: BSR Annual Meeting Minutes 2019.
Your invoices for 2020 are in the mail, and payment is due by January 31st. Please note that all invoices have been mailed; none will be emailed. If you have questions, or if you have had a change of address in the last year and not notified Cool Springs, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you all, and Happy New Year.
Nan Kemp, Treasurer
