Question Whey did we receive a bill for a July assessment? Answer Cottage Collection homes
pay twice a year for yard maintenance.
Comment H/O said his Cottage Collection yard was not being edged and weeded in a
satisfactory manner and that he has a sprinkler that is not working. Answer We are on a
contract schedule so we only pay for so many mows and edges per year. They need to spread
that out to make sure the yards are kept in a tidy manner and we keep to our contract. The
sprinkler issue will be looked into.
Comment A H/O brought a complaint about their neighbors backyard being overgrown.
Answer A letter will be sent as a reminder for them to maintain.
Comment A H/O brought a complaint about people not cleaning up after their dogs,
specifically on her yard and driveway. Answer They were told that the HOA can’t really police
this activity but a reminder will be in the next newsletter.

Washington County laws would apply. On private streets the HOA rules will apply.
Comment H/O said the HOA meeting signs are a helpful reminder. Board stated that the
meeting agenda will be posted on the website prior to each meeting.
