From the President,
VVEPOA Board of Directors:
The Board of Directors has been diligently working to address the security issues concerning the Mail House break-ins. A custom, industrial type security door has been installed. The PA State Police and USPS Security are actively investigating these crimes. Please continue to reach Trooper Smith at 570-646-2271 with any helpful information or to report fraudulent activity on any accounts.
Additional security measures have been approved after a board member met with security companies on Monday, February 7. The Board of Directors is awaiting the final proposal with specifics to move forward. Should this cost exceed the spending threshold permissible by the Board of Directors exclusively, a vote may be necessary from the community to approve the cost.
There appears to be a lot of misinformation and confusion as to the responsibilities and functions of the Board of Directors. We strongly encourage each community member to read and understand the Bylaws and Covenants that govern our community. These are legally binding documents that regulate the conduct and business affairs of our development. The Board of Directors is bound to conduct the administration of Valley View Estates in accordance with these documents. Again, we urge you to familiarize yourself with them; they will answer many of your questions. If they do not, or you have further questions, please email/call us and we will get back to you to follow up. We believe an informed community is a stronger community.
Lastly, the Board of Directors is working on a digital transformation to improve our communication platform and to upgrade the way we conduct, document and inform the community of our business affairs. This will provide more efficient and effective manner to reach the community at large.
Our goal is to work together as a community, particularly when faced with challenges and difficult times. Decisions made by the Board are deliberate and with much consideration, as that is our responsibility to you as residents. Please continue to use the VVEPOA website for your source of information, to ask questions or to voice your concerns or opinions. Thank you.
Retention Pond/SWALE Project:
We have a plan and continue to work on Ponds and Swales in our community as well as the roads and drainage grates. It is extremely important for every property owner to keep the drain pipe, under your driveway, clear of any debris. If you notice anything that needs our attention, please contact us.
During 2022, roadside and entrance grass was mowed as usual along with double cut lines around the perimeter of the community. Snow plowing and spreading of salt and traction grit has been accomplished on an "as needed" basis. Gaps between the grass and the roadway, as well as at several intersections were filled to prevent further washout and erosion of our roadways. The planned swale work will assist with this as well.
New Valley View Estates signs were designed and installed at the entrance and conservation areas.
Volunteers are always welcomed and needed!! Volunteers keep our DUES down. All Members are encouraged to get involved.
IF YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS, PLEASE LET US KNOW.
