Community Update

Dear Neighbors,

I would like to start by taking a moment to thank every resident who has made our neighborhood one of the most desirable places to live in Augusta County. The Board of Directors is proud to serve you and is committed to continuing the excellent quality of life we enjoy here in Emerald Hills.

This year the community saw the improvement of the front entrance, low annual association fees, and 95% compliance on collection on these annual fees. Remember these fees are used to maintain and mow our common areas. The board appreciates your quick reply in paying your fees. Also, a new link to our webpage for financial reports has been added. Please visit the website at http://ehhoa.info/

As we move into the New Year, the Board of Directors will be doing some minor “house cleaning” regarding our association’s legal requirements. Our incorporation documents need to be up-dated along with our by-laws, and then re-filed. The board is currently working with Allen & Carwile Attorneys at Law. To learn more about the re-filing process please attend the next association meeting.

Our next business meeting will be Tuesday, January 9, 2007. Please join us that evening at the Yancey Fire Station. We value and look forward to your participation. You can reach me at kmichael1@juno.com or you may contact the other Board members by visiting our website.

Again, thank you very much for your time, patience, and most importantly your support. I look forward to working with many of you over the next year.

Message from Yancey Fire Department

Preston L Yancey Volunteer Fire Department like many volunteer agencies in this area and across the country, have suffered a steady decline in volunteer membership over the past several years. Our current active membership has declined to the point where paid staffing assistance has become a necessity. We have been unsuccessful in multiple attempts over the past year to recruit and retain new members that have the minimum certifications to provide fire and EMS services to our area that we protect. Our current membership levels leave us in the unfortunate position of not being able to adequately staff our units to minimum required levels and be able to respond to emergency calls in your neighborhood. The PLYVFD Board of Directors and Officers will be requesting 24/7 staffing assistance from the Augusta County Supervisors on Wednesday, December 13, 2006. Please contact Mr. Coleman, Wayne District Supervisor (540) 245-5618 to let the Supervisors know that we need adequately staffed fire and emergency services.
