defective Fireside fireplaces were installed in homes in The
Reserve and possibly in Renaissance Ridge. The metal frame
around the glass can warp, causing it to separate from the glass
front. If you open the grate under your fireplace there is a
tag with the model number on it. The defective models are
numbers GCDC 60 and GCDC 80, installed between the
23rd week of 1999 and 23rd week of 2002. If you have this
model please call Fireside at 425-251-9447 and give them your
information, and they will replace the glass and frame free of
charge. If you would like Fireside to install it they charge $55.00. Thank
you to our neighbor, Katie Martin, for informing us.

- The HOA's accounting
firm, Century Small Business Solutions, has a
new address. Payments should be mailed to
their new address.
- The HOA board apologizes
for the mistake made by Century, our accounting company, in the dues
and special assessment mailing. Instead of accompanying the
invoices with a letter describing the special assessment they sent a
letter about liens. Century has already mailed an explanation
letter. The board has received many inquiries
about the reason for the special assessment. The 2003 budget has
more expenses than what is covered by regular homeowner dues, and to
make up for the deficit, for the third straight year the board has
approved a special assessment. The board anticipates that as
dues continue to rise 10% a year (the most allowed by the neighborhood
covenants) the special assessment will
decrease every year, until the dues are in line with the budget.
The 2003 budget is posted here for your review. If you are
interested in being on the 2003-2004 Finance Committee please come to
the elections on August 23rd (see below) or contact
Please contact us if you have any other
questions about dues or the special assessment.
