Assessment Response: As of May 31, one household on the payment plan is paid in full; all liens (2) will be removed from this member's home as soon as possible (within 90 days of final payment). This household also has paid their 2012 assessment early. The other 3 households are still on schedule with the payment plan.


Tree Removal: J&L has started to take down trees on the common property. A member called the Association because they were concerned with the number of workers and wanted to be sure they were authorized for the tree cutting. They were indeed with J&L.


Commonwealth tree removal:† The homeowner is aware of the encroachment and uses a licensed person to mow the lawn which is permissible.† She wishes to continue maintaining this part of the property.† The tree that was at issue has been marked for removal, but Joe and Armand are going to check to see if it was identified in the original removal plans for J&L. No follow up letter is needed. ††


Stream Bed:† Joe received a call from a member concerned about trees being cut down and activity (digging) around the stream bed. It is protected land- Joe will write about it in the next Herald article to bring awareness.† After looking, the activity is likely a childís fort being built.
