I wish many times you could all see all the work going into conservation of your dues and reserves contribution. Board members as well as management are constantly reviewing everything from labor cost to product cost and contract fees to find anywhere the belt can be tightened. This is an ongoing process, not only at budget time but all year long.
This last budget was a long and at times contentious process but I believe in the end we did all we could to hold dues steady for another year. Costs continue to escalate as we all know from our personal experience. No matter how much the government wants to convince you there is very little inflation everyone who buys gas or groceries knows better. Your board and management will continue to spend as if the money was our own. We’re doing all we can.
