2022/2023 Maintenance Fees
Much of our efforts are directed to spending that will improve our roads and reduce annual gravel requirements and, of course, winter road maintenance. Capital expenditures are undertaken to correct larger ongoing issues. Extraordinary and emergency funds are being accumulated to help protect the Association against possible future major road/bridge issues, so that it is not necessary to reduce any annual road maintenance work, should a major issue arise.
Fees are invoiced via email or regular mail in the later half of November. All invoices are due by January 31.

The Fee Structure changed for 2022/2023. Please find details below:
Options for payment and Directions for e-transfer payments:
With our new accounting system, we will now be able to accept VISA, MasterCard or Apple Pay. There will be a REVIEW AND PAY button on the invoice for those receiving theirs by email, however, we can still process the payments manually for those who don't want to use that option.
As an easier and faster option than mailing a cheque, you can also send payment via e-transfer to email@example.com and include your name and invoice number in the message to recipient field. Our account is setup for auto-deposit - so no password is required.
