What do you call an old snowman?
Hi Deer Mountain Neighbors! Although the temperatures are well below freezing
and we are surrounded by several feet of snow, Day Light Savings is only 12
days away and Spring is 23 days away!
A couple of hot topics for this month’s update:
● Snow removal from the streets – Our streets are public roads and
Wasatch County is responsible for snow removal. Lately, we’re seeing
our tax dollars at work as Wasatch County vehicles have been plowing,
blowing, scooping, hauling and dumping snow for days. They have done
a great job working to keep our roads clear and wide enough for two
vehicles to pass. And, there have been some challenges. The snow piles
on Keetly Station are so high they block views. If you have praise or
complaints about the streets and snow removal process, please contact
Wasatch County Public Works at (435) 654-1661.
● Late Fees on 2019 HOA Dues that have not been paid – For the handful
of owners who have not paid 2019 dues, please note that your next bill will
include a late fee.
● Nightly, weekly and monthly rentals are prohibited – Several properties in
Deer Mountain are listed online for short-term rentals, which are prohibited
by our CC&Rs. ACS, our property manager, is sending out violation
notices and will begin assessing fines.
● Proposed change in number of Board Members – Currently, our Board
has 7 members. At the March 12, 2019 Open Meeting, the Board will be
voting on whether to reduce the number to 5 members as permitted by our
By-laws. The rationales behind this proposal include:
o Deer Mountain’s business can be readily and effectively be
conducted by 5 members
o Easier to establish a quorum with 5 members
● ‘Who You Gonna Call?’ Reminder – If you are experiencing excessive
neighbor noise, here’s a reminder from last month’s newsletter about the
most effective ways for stopping the noise while it’s happening:
o Best option – Call your neighbor or knock on their door and ask
them to reduce the volume or stop the noise.
o Second best option – Call the Wasatch County Sherriff’s Office
(435-654-1098) and make a formal complaint.
o Third best option – Post a complaint on the Deer Mountain portal.
If you have filed a complaint with the Sherriff’s Office, please note
that in your post so ACS can reference the filed complaint in Deer
Mountain’s violation notice and fine assessment process.
The HOA Board holds open meetings on the second Tuesday of each month.
Our next meeting is March 12, 2019 from 3 to 5 pm at Zion Bank, 1100 Snow
Creek Drive. If you cannot attend in person, you may call in at 319-527-3511,
code: 9952953#. If you plan to call in, please let us know by posting on the ACS
