Financial Update—Water and Assessments

At the June 15, 2016 meeting, the WRA Board of Trustees voted to raise the base level minimum water rate charge by $2 from $34 to $36.  This is effective as of the July 2016 billing cycle.

The HOA Dues Assessment billing will be occurring in September to coincide with the annual meeting ballot ratification of the budget.

Chalet Roof Project Update

The Wilderness Rim Board of Trustees has selected a contractor to replace the Chalet and Office roofs based on the Park Committee’s recommendations.

The work is tentatively scheduled to begin late August/early September.

WRA has requested a specific start date from the contractor and will update the WRA calendar once a firm date for the work has been established with the contractor.

If you have any questions about the project, please feel free to contact the Park Committee.

Picture of Chalet in 1969, sporting the cedar shake roof… the lack of trees is quite striking. When Wilderness Rim was established, it was built in a clear cut.
