Eagle Springs Association Inc. Collection Policy.
1 Eagle Springs Association Inc. working with the Nowack-Howard law firm have instituted a Delinquency Collection policy that will be implemented immediately. This policy is:
➢ Association Fees invoices are mailed to each resident at the end December of each calendar year and all assessments are due by January 31st of each calendar year.
➢ Association Fees not paid in full by February 5th of the current calendar year will have a 10% late fee added to the original Association Fee.
➢ Interest will be charged at the annual rate of 7% on the unpaid balance starting February 5th of the current calendar year.
➢ Association Fees not paid in full by March 31st of the current calendar year may result in the resident delinquent account being turned over to the Eagle Springs law firm for legal actions.
➢ Eagle Springs Association Inc. strongly prefers to work with homeowners to resolve delinquent balances through a mutually acceptable settlement, and without legal action. Owners who have fallen delinquent or are facing financial hardship should reach out to the Board to make arrangements for the
delinquent balance. The Association will work with residents to structure a payment plan on a case-by-case basis. Owners who reach out and agree to a settlement with the Association may still have a lien placed on their home to protect the Association’s interest during the payment plan.➢ Legal fees, lien fees, bankruptcy fees, lawsuit fees, attorney fees, etc., may be assessed against the delinquent residents based on Eagle Springs law firm current rates for such legal actions.
In Eagle Springs we have a lot of opinions on fishing in the lakes or ponds. The water that is surrounded by homes is on private property. The other two bodies of water are posted “No Fishing and No Swimming.” As you may have noticed we have two fountains down right now for expensive repairs. Both pump failures were caused by fishing line sucked in and wrapped around the rotating mechanisms.
I just wanted you to be aware of where part of our budget goes for repairs that could be avoided.
There has been some discussion about the Gate Cameras at Eagle Springs on unofficial websites. So I will provide some factual information about the cameras and the recent additions at Autumn Trace and Jamestown.
Our gate cameras record license plate numbers and a partial view of vehicles that go through the entrances to our Eagle Springs Communities. Until recently Jamestown and autumn Trace did not have cameras. The BOD approved purchase and installation over a year ago for those communities. Unfortunately for the last year and a half it has been very slow and hard to obtain equipment which resulted in a delay in the installations. Autumn Trace was delayed more because of the complexity of the electrical hook ups. Had to be tunneled under the wall and located in a different position than was originally planned.
The information on these cameras is no accessed unless we have criminal activity or vandalism in our communities. Then it is helpful information for law enforcement to track down and deal with the people involved. We can look for specific times and vehicles that coincide with the criminal activity. And these cameras have resulted in arrests of people.
They also assist in payments for damages to the gates when they are damaged by vehicles. WE have had two cases recently of gate damage. One resulted in over $ 9,000 in damages that is in court for recovery. The other resulted in over $ 6,000 in damages. The individual is known and has arrest warrant issued so that repair cost will be recovered also.
Eagle Springs is not monitoring your movements or keeping data on you. There is a limited look back time and then info is recorded over. We do believe it is a great addition to crime prevention in our communities and a benefit to all of us. The camera operations are a very small portion of our annual budget.
If you have specific questions we can address them for you.
Eagle Springs residents are having a community wide yard sale on Friday Oct. 8th and Saturday Oct. 9th from 8AM.-4PM.
All you need to do is open your garage or put the items for sale in the driveway. Put a sign up in your yard. We will advertise the sale.
When an accident occurs we want to resolve the issue as soon as possible. More importantly, we have to make sure we follow protocol to make sure the water is safe again before we reopen. The pool will be closed today July 2nd and tomorrow July 3rd. We are still shooting for our July 4th party on Sunday. We will post again as soon as we know for sure we are good to open Sunday.
