Bridge News

By Danny Phillips

The players in the Marathon Bridge here at the Tradition are continuing to turn in very good scores. The players meet new and interesting people who enjoy cards. All levels are welcome. Last year's winners have to be on the lookout for some tough play by those trying to post the best scores this year. Best of all everyone has fun. All of this culminates in a presentation at the awards event in June. Anyone who would like to participate in this event next year give Danny Phillips a call at 235-9338 for more information.

Interested in Marathon Bridge?

Please contact
Danny Phillips at DPhill413@aol.com
or call 235-9338.  The Marathon Is a very interesting way to meet your neighbors and play bridge. We are trying to find more couples who would give the Marathon a try.  Call for more information.

Fines Schedule





The Board of Directors and the Management Company as well as our Attorney have approved the Fine Schedule, November 2012.

Fines for Violation of ARB Rules and Regulations 

Any and all work approved by the ARB shall require an Owner to obtain, as applicable, the appropriate governmental permit and provide proof of said permit to the ARB.  If an Owner undertakes work that has been approved by the ARB without obtaining a governmental permit then that Owner shall be subject to following:

 1. First Offense.  A fine of $25.00.

 2. Second Offense.  A fine of $100.00.

If an Owner commences any work or causes any work to commence that is deemed to be in violation of the Declaration, Bylaws or ARB rules or regulations then the Owner shall be subject to a $100.00 fine plus the cost required for any corrective action.

Fines for Violations of Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions

Prior to the imposition of any fine, the Board or its delegate shall serve the Owner with written notice describing the alleged violation, the penalty to be imposed and a request for corrective action. If the Owner does not take action to correct the violation then a second follow-up written notice with the same content, as the first notice shall be served upon the Owner. If the Owner does not respond to the previous notices then a third written notice letter shall be served by the Property Management Company (Kuester) to the Owner setting forth the alleged violation, the fine to be imposed and the requirement that the Owner take action to correct the violation.  If the Owner does not adhere to the terms set forth in the notification by Kuester then that Owner shall be subject to the following:

1. $50.00 fine upon non-compliance with Kuester notification.

2. $100.00 monthly fine (after the initial $50.00 fine) that shall accrue plus costs, including reasonable attorney fees, until the Owner becomes compliant.

 Appeals 

An Owner shall have the right to appeal fines levied directly to the Board of Directors at a regularly scheduled board meeting.   It is expressly stated that the appeals process shall be limited to fines and shall not be available for the imposition of liens as a result of an Owner’s delinquency or nonpayment of assessments set forth in the Declaration.

If you have an irrigation system that uses a pump to deliver water, MAKE SURE you drain the water completely from the pump to prevent freezing and cracking of the casing. This is done by removing the plug on the Bottom and the TOP of the pump.  Be careful when removing these plugs.  Ensure the electricity is off to the pump and the pressure has been released. 

If you have questions, need assistance or have any problems with doing this, give Howard Krauth (237-7544) a call.  He will be glad to help you.
