Deer Mountain® Neighborhood News Update

February 26, 2019

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

portal.

Warm regards,

Deer Mountain HOA Board
