Dues and fees

SUMMARY
Members of the POA contribute to community maintenance and operations through an annual assessment. Occasional special assessments are possible, but only with the approval of a majority of members voting to fund special community projects.  HOA members pay separately as needed for a sewer fee and trash removal.
