Voting Board Suspends Monthly Late Payment Charges / Extends Filing Deadline for Senior Citizen/Permanently Disabled Discount

Recognizing the widespread disruption experienced by our members in this crisis, an examination was undertaken as to what steps are possible, now, to allay any financial concerns members may have regarding their obligations to the Club.

The following is a summary of the changes approved by the Voting Board on March 23, 2020:
1. monthly late payment charges for those who currently are not eligible for the Late Payment Charge Grace Period are suspended for the three months April, May, June.

2. for those currently qualified for the Grace Period, monthly late payment charges for the period March – May are already suspended. These members will receive an additional month to pay their balance – through June 30.

3. members who carried a balance into this calendar year (owe more than 2020 charges) are excluded from the suspension.

4. the suspension of late charges for three months is extended to lot owners.

5. monthly late payment charges on all balances resume July 1.

6. seniors and the permanently disabled receive an additional two months to apply for the discount, and an additional month before the discount is forfeited.
