Gate issues 

I wanted to give an update on the problems with the gate this week.  The motherboard and possibly the keypad need to be replaced. We shut it off until the parts come in and can be installed. After that I have to reprogram everything back into the system. I’m hoping to have that done over the weekend (if it goes smoothly. cross your fingers!) 

Sorry for the inconvenience. 


Lake fish stocking 

With the rainy season beginning, so begins mosquito season! Our lake management company informed us there is a certain fish we could put in the lake to help combat the mosquito population by eating all the larvae in the lake.  Since it didn’t cost all that much, we went ahead and ordered the mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis). 

They were released Friday and hopefully will get to work munching away.  These small fish are only a few inches long, but can eat more than their body weight in mosquito larvae. These little guys, along with the lake treatments a few times a year should really help combat the spread of these pests that carry deseases like Zika and West Nile virus.  You can do your part by making sure there isn’t any standing water around your house. 

Remember, if fishing in the lake it is catch and release only! 

Quarterly payments due on the 1st

There was some confusion during our January assessment payment as to when it is due. All quarterly payments are due on the 1st of the months of January, April, July, and October, NOT THE 30th.  If you send a payment after the first, you run the risk of a late fee of $27.50 and it will be your responsibility to pay the late fee. 

Payments can be made by check payable to the HOA of Palisades and mail to:

You can also pay online, or set up automatic payments. Just contact the management company on how to do those it’s very simple.

If you miss more than two payments you will be sent to collections which will automatically incur at least an additional $280 fee, on top of the $27.50 per month for being late.  Any problems paying please contact Exclusive Property Management at tel:800-510-7787

2017 Annual Membership Meeting 

Thursday March 23rd will be our annual membership meeting for the purpose of electing members to the board of directors. If there is no quorum, the current board of directors will renew for another year.  You should’ve gotten notice in the mail from the management company. 

Immediately following the annual meeting, the board will hold their normal monthly board meeting. 

Please attend if you can.
