May Updates

We had a very good monthly meeting last night. I was pleased to see concerned members at this meeting. My thanks to you all and I hope we can continue to have member attendance. We also have added 2 new board members. John Makin was appointed last month and Kalani Ingram was appointed last night. I would like to welcome them both.
At last nights meeting we discussed our roads( as usual) and while not pleased with this latest grading we decided to bring the contractor back as he explained some problems he had and offered to come back and do additional work on drainage and crowns at no cost. We are looking forward to what level of work we will receive. I will say the owner seems to be sincere and honest. This work should start in a week or two. We ask that you all be alert and cautious around the construction equipment. After that we are looking into possibly adding AB mix to our roads for hardness and dust control. We also ask that everyone drive the posted 15mph limit to help slow the erosion of our roads and keep everyone safe.
We also discussed the installation of community lock boxes. There will be enough for all and participation is voluntary. We are not sure yet if individuals will inform the P.O. or the association will. We will let you know. We will get the boxes for free but must put the pads in ourselves. The board has allotted $2500.00 for this project. The work will be done by volunteer members so if you want to help please contact our management company with your name and contact number.

January 2017 updates

Hard to believe that we are nearly half way through January already. We have had our first board meeting and elected officers for 2017. I am still president, Terry VanVorce is still treasurer and Beverly Karsch is still secretary. We discussed roads, as always, and we decided to put out bids again and see what kind of response we get. We have had no luck the last couple of times we did this. We also have requested a bid from a local company that has been interested in our business. Hopefully we can save a little money. We have not picked a date for our next road work, it will not be until after the February meeting where bids will be reviewed.We are still looking for those of you that want a metal PO box, send your name and address to our management company. That’s about all the information there is for now.
I have just one thing to say and I say it a lot but it is what keeps the EPOA going….annual assessments! This is our income for road maintenance and repairs. Generally we collect about 90% of what is due last year 2016 we only collected 76%..that’s a shortage of $13,642. We have several properties in collections now and I am sorry to say that we will be looking at more accounts to send to collections based on last years figures. We make it very easy for members to go on a payment plan in order to avoid collection procedures, which are very costly, so I ask all those that have fallen behind to contact our management company and set up a plan. Assessments went up $20 to $300 for 2017 this is a mere $25/month. Monthly meetings are the second Monday of every month at 7pm at the Sahuarita Baptist Church, except for holidays

Have a great year

Terry VanVorce
Beverly Karsch
John Avril
Jason Cummings
Eddie Garcia
Jess Trane
Volney Morin
Micheal Cobb

No first meeting was held by the board as all members we not present and we were serving hot dogs right after the meeting. The election of officers will be at the January meeting. I would also like to bring to your attention that the EPOA has a facebook forum, not a page. The forum was not started by the association, it was started by a member. I have joined it in hopes of creating more involvement in our association and to help get correct information out to our members. So if you aren’t a forum member yet please go on facebook and join. Pass the word to everyone you know as social media seems to be the way to get the word out. I look at it daily and will respond to any questions, issues asap.
We also got the opportunity to buy dirt for our roads, unfortunately we could only get 100 loads. We are in the process of having it dumped and worked into our roads. The dirt will be worked as far as possible on each of the 3 main roads and the A&S will grade the first 2 miles of each of the main roads. This should be completed within the next 7 days.
As always I invite you to attend our monthly meetings which are held the second Monday of every month(except holidays) at 7pm at the Sahuarita Baptist Church at Sahuarita and Country Club rds. Invoices will be sent by the end of this month and will include 2017 dues and any past dues owed

Hello everyone it’s nearing the end of the year and I just want to remind you our annual meeting is coming.

Hope to see you all there. Remember you must be a paid up member to attend the meeting. You can send your money to our management company or pay at the door.
I have been made aware of the mail theft and box destruction problems we have been experiencing. I believe we can get regulation steel lock boxes from the post office. We have to provide the slabs.
I need the name and address of those of you that would want a box. Send the info to our management company. I will keep you informed of the progress.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Latest EPOA News

Well over half a year as gone by. Our monsoon has been mostly talk no action. This has made our
jobs as Board members very easy. Our roads are holding up fairly well but we still need to start to rebuild some bar ditch’s. Please report any road problems to the board via email or calling our management company, and we will investigate and take appropriate action. So far I have received only one such complaint. We are also looking for another contractor for our roads to compare costs and quality of work.
Today I received a letter complaining about an abandoned vehicle on Mann rd. I hope this person reads my posts. The board will and does investigate all complaints of violations but the complaint MUST contain the name and address of the person filing the complaint and he/she must be a member in good standing. So if you sent the letter please send contact information to the Board or if you know who sent the letter ask them to do so and we will take immediate action.
I would again like to remind you all to pass around the web address to friends and neighbors, as staying informed makes a stronger association. We are allowed anywhere between 3 and 9 Board members. We currently have 8 so if you or anyone you know is interested please come to meetings and let us know. Meetings are the 2nd Monday of every month(except holidays) at 7pm at the Sahuarita Baptist Church…all members in good standing are welcome

Presidents Monthly

First let me welcome our newest board member Jason Cummings. Jason was appointed by the board to replace Robert Tappe who resigned last month. Many thanks to Robert for several years of service to the EPOA by being a board member as well as a former road crew member. The EPOA is allowed up to 9 members, we currently have 8. If anyone is interested in a board position please come to the June meeting and apply. The board meetings are the second Monday of every month at 7pm at the Sahuarita Baptist Church.
Secondly our next road grading will be coming within the next 2 weeks as soon as A&S paving completes their current job. We are continuously looking for contractors to grade our roads so as to get the most gradings for our budget.

As I said before our association is owed some $60,000 in past due assessments. A letter was sent to those in arrears and we have collected or set up payment plans with several members. Unfortunately 19 members had to be turned over to our collections lawyer, but as we said at the annual meeting we intend to collect this money in full by all means available.
Our next meeting will be June 13, 7pm hope to see you there. Participation in your association is the only way to know what is really going on and why. What you hear is never correct. Become active!
