The April 2nd meeting of the Middle Island Property Owners Association Board is open to all property owners. Open meetings are held at least quarterly. 

At the April meeting, three amendments to the Bylaws will be considered.  The meeting will open with an opportunity for any property owner to comment on the amendments, which set the date of the annual meeting, provide for annual election of officers, and clarify when the nominees for election to the Board are sent to property owners.  The amendments are found here

The Association has sent statements for the 2018 assessments.  More details are available here.  Please send your payments to our accountant, Charles Pardee, at your earliest convenience.  We look forward to a fourth consecutive year in which all assessments were paid.

Our combined Annual Meeting and Annual Budget Meeting was held at the Conservancy at 3pm on November 25, the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.  The Agenda and the Presentation can be found here under the Annual Meeting listing.

The Annual Meeting of the Association include interim presentations about the road options and the Cape Creek Dock and Ramp, and ample opportunity for property owners to ask questions and to comment on the work to date on these issues.  

The Annual Budget Meeting approved the 2018 Operating Budget, Reserve Funds Budget, and Annual Assessments, adopted by the Board on October 2.  Those budget documents are found here under Materials for the October 2, 2017 Board Meeting.  (They are also included in the slide presentation for the Annual Meeting.)  The proposed annual assessment will increase between 1.9% and 3.9% depending on lot type, our first increase in three years.  This increase primarily reflects our expectation that the Youngs will use less of David Ward’s time in 2018.  To the extent that there is an operating fund surplus at the end of 2017, the Board proposes that 50% be returned to property owners as a credit against 2018 dues, with the other 50% applied to the General Reserve Fund.  

The new Officers of the Association and Members of the Board can be found here.
