- Question: How does HOA determine common land?
Answer: Plats of lot will identify common land.
- Question: Could someone not pay the annual assessment because they thought they had already paid or were confused with the civic assocation dues?
Answer: Possibly. Homeowners should have received a disclosure packet at sale of property. HOA tried before to change its name to something distinctive but was not allowed to.
- Question: Who should homeowners contact when they see a P.O.D.S. on a driveway for several months?
Answer: Call the county for any county specific violations, to include overgrown lawns. It is more effective for the homeowners to call the county rather than board members calling the county.
- Question: What is the KPWCA website?
Meeting adjourned: Hearing no further business, the meeting adjourned at 8:20 p.m.
