2020 Budget & Assessments - UPDATE your fees by Jan 1st!

Oct 18, 2019

At its October 3, 2019 meeting, the South Riding Proprietary Board of Directors, based on the recommendation of the Budget & Finance Committee, adopted the 2020 Operating Budget and Schedule of Assessments.

Every five years SRP contracts for a reserve study to identify the useful life of our most significant assets (such as pools, buildings, roads, playgrounds) and to budget enough that we can address replacements and improvements as needed without spikes in your assessments. It has been the long-term goal to try to fund our reserves as closely to 100% as possible. In 2019, the reserve study identified a shortfall in funding, and as a result the Board, at the recommendation of the Budget and Finance Committee, voted to move $500,000 in funds from prior year retained earnings (surplus operating funds) and $640,000 from the capital improvement fund to the replacement reserve fund to eliminate the shortfall. The Board also voted to use $450,000 of prior year retained earnings (surplus operating funds) to be applied to the 2020 Budget to keep assessments stable. For a detailed analysis of how these surplus funds were applied please contact wtaylor@southriding.net.

The transfer of funds, along with the usual annual budget process, results in your assessment being adjusted a minimal amount as noted above. The amounts credited to each unit type were based on the percent of surplus in prior years in each budget category.

If you are on direct debit through SFMC, your monthly withdrawal will be adjusted automatically. Otherwise, please adjust your payment amount for the January 1st withdrawal and remaining 2020 assessment payments.
