Enclosed is the proposed 2019 budget approved by a majority of the Voting Members in Hedingham. Single-family dues are $55 and Townhome dues are $120 for 2019. Oakland Hills dues are $175 which are subject to change dependent on contracts finalized in the coming weeks.
The $55 is the amount ALL residents pay and allows for amenities such as Social events, use of the pools, tennis court, Athletic Center, playgrounds, golf course (as golf contract specifies) and the Common Area Landscaping.
The additional $65 ($120-Oakland Hills)Townhome owners pay is for exterior maintenance and a landscaping contract. 2019 contracts will be available online as of January 1st.
In 2019/20 Associa/HRW has been awarded the Management contract for Hedingham. Associa/HRW has the capability to provide easy and improved communication from management to residents and vendors with software called TownSq. The size of Hedingham, resident expectations for more clarity, improved customer service and management of contracts dictated the Board’s choice in Associa/HRW.
All other contracts remain with existing vendors. Common Area and Townhome Landscaping are 1-year contracts. Other landscape bids increased dues for Townhome owners $10 a month. Vendors will be held to an improved level of service in 2019 with increased oversight by Associa/HRW. The pool management contract and Townhome maintenance contracts are 2 years in length.
All homeowners will be receiving further instructions by mail on how to proceed with payment of our HOA dues and using the Town Square app and website. There will also be a “kiosk” set up at the Athletic Center and staff will be available to show residents how to use the app and will be able to pay dues on site beginning in January.
We look forward to the future of Hedingham and wish all residents a Happy New Year!
Hedingham Board of Directors
