Board Proposals for Fee Increases
Increase in the Monthly Moorage Fee is also being discussed. This is being considered due to the estimated cost for the structural needs of A row, and to add to the current Reserve Fund.
Watch for kiosk board postings, office emails and attend the monthly board meetings for updates on the fee increases and the logistics of the A row project.
Search for Office Management Continues
The committee has taken a two-pronged approach, looking at both an individual manager as well as property management options. Applications and proposals are being received currently. Pam's last day as manager is December 31.
At the regular October meeting of the JBMI Board, the Board heard the first reading of two proposed changes to existing rules and regulations. The Board welcomes feedback on these proposals before its November meeting at which time a second and final reading will occur followed by a vote to approve or reject. The proposals are as follows:
1. To raise the levy for a violation of the JBMI short-term rental policy from $500 per month to $500 per day.
Rationale: The current levy is not seen as significant enough to dissuade the practice of renting one's home to unvetted and unmonitored guests for short periods of time. This change aims to make such a practice unprofitable.
2. To raise the non-refundable administrative fee for a new member or renter at the time of initial occupation from $38 per adult to $150 per household.
Rationale: Currently, a $38 fee is collected to cover the background check for each adult moving into the moorage. This fee is seen as insufficient to cover all administrative costs for time and labor of office staff. This change is seen as a fair representation of the actual administrative costs of processing a new household.
