Star Dust Hills HOA
It seems the HOA board of duly elected citizens of Star Dust Hills, oh wait I donít think the citizens of Star Dust Hills elected any of the board members. I believe they are a group of volunteers that are accepted by the other board members.
I donít believe they enforce any rules by sending a letter from the HOA attorney, and delivered by the HOA policeman, Oh I donít think we have an attorney or policeman.
When we lived in Danville we had a park, it had a pool and it was supported by tax dollars and you paid to let the kids play in the pool.
I really donít know what I am getting from paying $220.00 per year just for the honor of living here. Some HOAís wonít let you hang a flag on the front of your house or paint the house green, with orange shutters, and red roof.
I donít know how many homes are under the control of Don Gedert but Iím sure he does not have to pay the $220.00 each for all of them. If there is 353 households in Star Dust and they pay the $220.00 dues thatís a total income of $77,660. I donít know how much the water and lights cost, maybe $5,000.00 a year. That would leave enough money to pay someone to mow the HOA grounds and maintain the pool. Unless they pay the board members a salary each year.
You could buy a new mower each year and still have money left. That donít count renting the clubhouse and park for parties.
My thoughts are to give the HOA over to the town government, they have an attorney and a police force.
I am positive if a vote were taken 90 percent of the dues paying residents would vote to abolish the HOA and give the property to the town. That $220.00 would be a great savings for a lot of people in here,† they already pay taxes to the town.
I donít know but probably the property was never deeded over to the HOA. So if there would be a vote to delete the HOA then the property would automatically be back in Don Gedertís hands. If thatís the case then he would have to keep his property mowed and up to the town of Cloverdaleís regulations.
I have a neighbor that wanted to put a porch on the front of his house but because the house was set on the build line there was no room to build because someone way back set up a constitution about where you can† build on a property.
But then we all know about a ďfirst amendmentĒ that means a rule can be changed if it makes it better for all the people in a sub-division.
