Projects underway for 2015

Date Updated: 
Friday, January 30, 2015

Before I start into the projects, I have to tell you that we finished out 2014 with a membership total of 2,003 (households: 1,902/101 businesses). Our membership goal for last year was 1,650. The significant increase in household membership was due in part to our Home Owner Association program whereby if all the homeowners join in a subdivision, there is a discount on the membership dues. We are hoping to continue increasing our membership numbers through this program in 2015.
