So far there has only been one new nomination received for the 2007 Board.It is critical to sustain a Maintenance Board within the community.Without a board, snow plowing will not occur, neither will lawn cutting or maintenance to the open spaces.Without a board, the county would do lawn cutting at a much higher rate than we are currently paying and would only cut the lawn after it surpassed 8", or when they could schedule an appointment with their vendors.The county would also oversee pond repair at a much higher vendor rate.These rates would then be charged to the homeowners of Wynthorpe.The lack of care could also cause homes to depreciate in value.
If you or someone you know would be interested in volunteering for the upcoming board, nominations MUST be received by FRIDAY, DECEMBER 22ND.Nominations may be emailed to Trish Tatnall, Wynthorpe Secretary, at firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to the WMC address as noted below.Ballots will be mailed out after the nomination deadline, and the vote will be finalized at our community meeting on THURSDAY, JANUARY 11, 2007.
