Good Neighbours – Working Together

36 Years of Safe Driving

March 25, 2013

Discount available on payments made by April 30, 2013

Dear Cottage Neighbour,

At the last Road Association Annual Meeting in August 2012 it was agreed that the spring notice regarding your road fees should be sent out a month earlier, in March, with a discount deadline of April 30, 2013.  With this change, it is hoped that sufficient funds will be received in time to pay the contractor for grading, repairs to potholes, cave-ins and washouts, and the addition of gravel and limestone, as necessary.  This work is usually carried out in early June, once all the frost is out of the ground and it is safe to bring in heavy equipment.

The amount spent each year is determined in consultation with the contractor, after examination of the road’s condition in May, and depends on funds available.  Usually more needs to be done than we can afford and repairs are often reduced to a bare minimum. Please remember that the road, while it may be passable, is very soft in the early spring.  Winter is very hard on our seasonal road. Please go easy and try not to cause any more damage.

Now for the good news ….. those at last year’s annual meeting voted to keep road fees at the same level for 2013.  If we all pay our fees in good time, there should be sufficient funds to pay for the usual repairs and maintenance, while also providing a reserve fund to handle periodic emergencies due to storm damage.

For 36 years our road has been one of the best seasonal roads in the area – useable 6 to 7 months of the year at a nominal daily cost for each of us.  Your commitment to honour our friendly neighbour policy and pay your share has made this possible.  It all depends on you.  Thank you for your continuing support!  Have a happy summer safe driving

Road Fees for 2013 $200.00
Earlybird discount of $10 $190.00 if paid by April 30, 2013
