Trees on ELY: UPDATE!!!

 
Phase 2 of tree removal is now completed.  We did not expect for the trees on Ely to be removed this year, however the PUD contacted the Board once again.  The PUD has money left in their budget to remove the remaining overgrown trees located all along Ely.
 
The Board has voted to take this opportunity to save thousands of dollars and have the trees removed now.   Why now????…….Budgets can change yearly.  The PUD may not have extra money in their budgets next year, or the following year to offer this deal again.
 
After the trees are removed the board will create a plan for replanting.  You are welcome to attend our monthly meetings to help us create the plan that will again beautify the perimeter of our community.  The plans must be approved by the City of Kennewick, as well as the Benton PUD arborist before we are able to replant.  We will try to re-plant as quickly as possible.  However, we must also keep our yearly budget in mind, as to not over-spend.
 
 
Trees on 36th
As our neighborhood ages so do the trees.  Although our trees along 36th and Ely are beautiful, they have grown to be quite large and are entangled yearly in the power lines that go through them.
 
We have had serious issues with diseases in the past few years causing us to remove, and replace 13 trees on Ely.  Currently we have several that are diseased and will require removal in the next few years.
 
The Board was recently approached by the Benton PUD arborist about removing the trees completely, and replacing them with more appropriate sized trees (that would not reach the power lines).  The PUD offered to pay for the cost of removing the trees (which would cost thousands upon thousands for us to remove) with the provision that we would grind the stumps, and replace with a different variety of tree.

ASSESSMENT INCREASE IN 2019

 

HOW MUCH????..…….
Assessments will increase on January 1, 2019 to $330.00 per year.  We will continue to bill semi-annualy at $165.00 per billing cycle.  The late fee will increase to $41.25.  Please make sure your assessment is paid on time to avoid this late fee.  Late fees are assessed if any assessment or installment is unpaid for 15 days after the due date.  You will also incur interest at the rate of 12% per annum from the due date until paid in full.  If you participate in Auto Bill Pay with your bank the Board recommends you make your payment date the 15th of the month.  Just in case there is a mix-up with the auto pay you still have 15 days to make sure you have paid your assessment before incurring a late fee. 

If you would like to set up auto-bill pay with your bank please have them include your NAME and ADDRESS on the check and mail to:
Shadow Run HOA
PO Box 6388
Kennewick, WA 99336

 
HOW IS YOUR ASSESSMENT CALCULATED????.…………
Each year Board members meet (and you too are certainly invited) to create a Budget for the following year.  The current year costs are taken into consideration, while trying to project for the following year.  Some line items are decreased, others increased, and some line items may be deleted if goods or services are not projected to be needed for the following year.  Once a total dollar amount is generated the number is divided by the number of homes (197), and that will be our yearly assessment amount.
 
WHY AN INCREASE????????.……………….
Please click on the “Reserve Study” tab located at the top of this page.  Familiarize yourself with the Reserve Study as this is a very important line item when considering our assessment rates.  The purpose of being “Fully Funded” (based on the reserve study) is to AVOID a Special Assessment.  The Board voted this year to up the amount we are contributing to the reserve fund from $550.00 per month to $600.00 per month in order to make sure we are continuing to reach our goal of being fully funded.
In addition, we all know that the price of goods and services is ALWAYS increasing.  In order to accommodate this increase we must divide this increase between all homeowners.
 
DO WE BUDGET FOR BAD DEBT?????……..
The answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!! 
Please drag out your yearly financials that each homeowner received at the beginning of the year. 
Please note on the BUDGET sheet for 2018:
****The Budgeted amount for Fines, Interest, Late Charges, Lien Expense Reimbursement, and Transfer fees (Escrow transfer fee when a home is sold) is $0.00****
We are NOT collecting more from our homeowners (who pay their assessments ON TIME) to cover the costs of those who do not.

Noisy Dogs-

A dog that barks more than 5 continuous minutes is a city code violation [KMC 8.02.340] per the Kennewick City Attorney.  They recommend using the Barking Dog Complaint FormSee: https://www.go2kennewick.com/250/Barking-Dog-Complaints.  You have a right to notify the city of this violation and they will take action if pressed.  If one or more civil infractions are issued, an increasing fine ($50, $100, $200, and $400 within a five year period) can be imposed for each violation.

Pets doing their “business” in neighbor’s yards-

You do not have the right to allow your DOGS or CATS to do their business in other people‚Äôs yards.  Contact Tri-Cities Animal Shelter (509) 545-3740 about your rights.  They rent out cat traps for $5 a week with a $100 deposit.  The $100 deposit can be in the form of a check which they will not cash.  They will come by that day if called early enough or the next day to pick up the animal.  It is OK to trap any animal in your yard.  There is a fine to pick up your pet each time.  Their location is 1312 S. 18th Avenue in Pasco.  Their hours are Tuesday through Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m.
