January Block Watch Newsletter

Happy New Year Hampton Oaks!

This is the January block watch newsletter. Officer Deaton also wanted us to pass on the following info:

[Hilliard Police] has been informed that “COPS FOR KIDS, INC.” will be soliciting for their organization during the month of January, in the Franklin County area. They are registered in the State of Ohio as a Non-Profit Organization; therefore they are able to solicit without obtaining a permit. They will be soliciting funds for their organizational programs for children.

They are not a representative or soliciting on behalf of the Hilliard Division of Police.

Outcome of Rental Amendment Vote

The proposed amendment on rental properties DID NOT pass. The final count of valid votes was 42 in favor, 9 opposed. 18 votes were not counted because of unpaid dues.

We discuss the issue of rental properties at the annual meeting in spring of 2015. If this issue is important to you (one way or the other), please plan to attend that meeting so your voice may be heard.

Thank you to all 69 homes that participated.

Last call for ballots

Voting on the rental amendment will close on August 31.   If you have not already voted, please print a ballot or request one from the Board.  Ballots can be returned to the box at 4344 Heather Ridge Drive or sent to:

Hampton Oaks Homeowners’ Association

We urge participation, regardless of which way you vote. Votes will be counted among those who are current on their dues, so if you owe dues please keep in mind that your vote will not be counted unless you are paid in full as of August 31.

If you have dues that are owed, please pay them as soon as possible. If you are behind on dues from previous years, please either pay the amount due or contact the Board to discuss your circumstance.  Past dues postmarked before December 31, 2014, will have all penalties and fees waived. Beginning January 1, 2015 penalties and fees will be enforced at the full amount. If you are in doubt how much is owed, please contact the Board and an invoice will be given to you.

Results of the voting will be announced in early September.
