Reminder: Annual Meeting

Our annual membership meeting will be June 12th at 10am, at the boat ramp park. Due to Covid-19 precautions, no lunch will be served. If you cannot attend or feel uncomfortable attending, please consider using your proxy vote to designate another POA member to vote on your behalf. If mailed, I need to receive the proxy by June 11th. You can give the proxy to the POA member who will be attending on your behalf.

Annual lot fees and membership dues are due by June 30, 2020. You can (1) mail them to our PO Box 874, Burnet, TX, 78611, (2) bring them with you to the meeting, (3) place them in the POA mailbox located near Jim Lee’s home, or (4) bring them to my home (1305 CR 133).

Taxes and Internet

Hello, everyone,

Property Taxes. You may have recently received a tax increase notice from the Burnet County Appraisal District. Kevin Benz found a local real estate agent – Bruce Jones – who handles property tax protests on your behalf (https://hometaxshield.com/partners/jones-bruce). So if you want to protest your tax increase, but are uncertain about handling it yourself, this may be an option to investigate.

Internet. I know that internet in our area is very limited. My husband, John, has been investigating different options and the new Starlink system by Elon Musk should be available in our area in mid to late 2021. Its a satellite based system, so no line of sight to towers is required. And the speeds and latency issues of other satellite systems are supposed to not be an issue. You can learn more here: https://www.starlink.com/. Just wanted to get that on your radar in case it interests you.

Last update. We had a very small meeting of the Executive Board/Trustees/Committees this past Sunday. You should receive an update from us soon, along with our annual property dues notice. We decided to have an in-person membership meeting at the boat ramp, the 2nd Saturday of June at 10am. More info to follow in our annual president’s letter.
