Proposed HOA change to Bylaws Explanatory notes for Proposed Electronic Notifications:
Bylaw changes require a vote of 50% of the members (one vote per home).
This change is being proposed by the Board as a cost cutting measure to reduce the costs of required and informational mailings. It will also provide faster dissemination of information in some cases. At the time our Bylaws were written email communications were not as sophisticated as they have become so electronic notifications weren’t noted.
The Bylaws Proposal allows for those who want to receive emails to do so AND for those who want regular mail notifications to receive them.
Please note: It specifies information will be posted to the website AND emailed to those who have returned email information.
It further stipulates that if we have an email on file for the directory, that we will send information the your email.
Registering for electronic notifications will not automatically register you for publication in the directory.
