CALLING ALL RESIDENTS INTERESTED IN BECOMING A CANDIDATE FOR BOARD OF DIRECTORS:

On February 16, 2016 we will hold an election for a two-year term to the HOA Board of Directors. There are three seats available. For the last few weeks we have been actively soliciting names to be placed into nomination. So far, three members have submitted their names for consideration. Therefore, we are extending the nomination date until Monday, February 8th at close of business.

.

You can submit your name by sending an email to pgfuto@gmail.com. Include your name, address and phone number with a brief description of your qualifications, and a recent headshot (photo in JPEG format). A Board member will contact you to confirm your nomination.

.

Serving on the Board of Directors requires a minimum amount of time and should not be an impediment in deciding to run for office. Our administrative vendor, Sentry Management, handles the basic accounting, legal, and logistics work. The Board of Directors works as a team to set policy, write procedures, provide oversight and is the voice of the HOA.

.

We need members in good standing to accept this challenge. We need help protecting and consolidating the gains of the last four years. Please place your name in nomination today. If not you, who?

THREE (3) DECLARED BOARD OF DIRECTORS CANDIDATES - WILL YOU JOIN THEM?

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE CONSIDERED AS A BOARD MEMBER CANDIDATE, PLEASE CONTACT PERI FUTO BY TOMORROW!

GREEN VEHICLE STICKERS

With the Pool Parking Lot in regular use, it is important that every vehicle owned by a resident have a Green Vehicle Sticker placed on the rear window. These stickers are provided free of charge by the HOA and are a Safety Measure to assist residents and the Covington Police recognize those vehicles that belong in our neighborhood.

If you do not have a Green Vehicle Sticker on each of your vehicles, please REPLY to this email providing your Name, Street Address, and the Number of Vehicles you have and they will be delivered to your mailbox.

If you would like a sticker for your golf cart too, please make that request as this is a great idea since many residents drive their golf carts to the pool.

OVERNIGHT VISITORS & CAMPERS/RVs PARKED IN THE STREET or AT POOL PARKING LOT - VISITOR PARKING PASS REQUIRED - NO EXCEPTIONS

If you will be having overnight quests park on the street or your Camper/RV parked in front of your home (or at the Pool Parking Lot) at any time during the year in preparation for a trip or returning from a trip, you MUST place a VISITOR PARKING PASS on the dashboard so that the Covington Police know that it belongs to you and will be moving shortly. Please indicate on the Visitor Pass the date you will be moving the RV. This is to be followed every time.

Leaving unmarked cars parked in the Pool Parking Lot during the day or overnight is not allowed. If vehicles do not have a Green Vehicle Sticker on them then they MUST have a Visitor Parking Pass on them to keep from being towed.

.

If you need a Visitor Parking Pass Template, please email tp81854@yahoo.com and one will be emailed back to you.
