2016 Budget and HOA Fees
Posted on Nov 17th, 2015 Comments (0)
The 2016 budgets for both the Community Association and the Council of Co-Owners (condos) were recently approved and the HOA fees established for 2016.  Towne Properties is currently loading the fees in their system and will likely mail coupons to homeowners in early to mid-December.  The quarterly HOA fee for the Community Association will remain at $90 per quarter/$360 per year.   Homeowners will see an 8% increase to their base monthly HOA fee for the Council of Co-Owners. This equates to an increase of $12-$15 per month per unit depending on the model of home.   The board recognizes this is a significant increase for 2016 but is necessitated by substantial increases in community insurance costs and water/sanitation.    The insurance increase was addressed in the last newsletter.  In 2013 our insurance policy was $140,000 and was budgeted for $150.000 in 2015. Unexpectedly the policy increased to $200,000 on March 1, 2015 when we received a non-renewal notice and had to go to the secondary market to obtain a new policy.  We are anticipating another 5% increase effective March 1, 2016.

As previously announced, Becky Race left Towne Properties at the end of July to pursue another job opportunity.  Becky served as the Tara Property Manager for the past five years and we wish her well in her new position.

Sheila recently sent the following email to the members of both Tara boards:

Good Morning,

 You can reach me anytime via my email – sheilapangallo@towneproperties.com or my office number – 513-489-4059 ext. 7727.

Changes to Garbage Corrals
Posted on May 18th, 2015 Comments (0)
Over the past month there have been several changes to both garbage corrals in an effort to stem illegal and improper dumping of garbage.  Over the past several years the HOA board has tried a number of fixes in an attempt to stop residents (and non-residents) from leaving trash and large items such as furniture, grills, etc on the ground outside the dumpsters.  This has been an expensive problem for the association because Rumke will not pick up any trash that is not placed inside the dumpsters and the association has to pay maintenance personnel from Towne Properties to come out and clean up the mess and place everything in the dumpsters.  Even the $250 fine, which is strictly enforced, did not deter some residents.  Unfortunately the violaters found out the hard way that once the fine is imposed it is not waived under any circumstance.
The following changes have been made at both garbage corrals in a further effort to solve the problem:

Decks and Patios
Posted on May 25th, 2012 Comments (0)
The Property Manager along with board members and several vendors conduct a monthly walk of the community in order to identify areas requiring attention.  Over the past several months we have noticed an increasing use of decks and patios being used to store miiscellaneous items such as bicycles, toys, motorcycles, etc.  Community documents stipulate that "decks and patios may only be used only for their intended purposes" and "there will be no storage or parking of any items, including baby carriages, playpens, bycycles, wagons, toys, vehicles, etc".  
Patio Shades/Blinds
Posted on Apr 26th, 2012 Comments (0)
At the April Council of Co-Owners meeting the board approved the installation of patio shades/blinds in the Tara community as recommended by the Architectural Committee.  The exterior shades will allow homeowners with a patio or deck to block the intense summer sun and allow homeowners to better utilize their deck or patio.   As with the "Screened Porch" policy the installation of the patio shades/blinds requires the homeowner to submit an "Improvement Application" to Towne Properties and have the application approved by the board of directors prior to installation.
