As of this writing, all Waters property owners should have paid their 2023 annual
fee. SWRA offers a payment plan option for property owners who need a little more
time to pay their annual fee. After February 14, 2023, a non-payment fee in the
amount of $125 will be added to all property accounts where the owners have not paid
the annual fee or have not signed a payment plan agreement. Please contact the
SWRA office immediately if you would like to use the payment plan option to pay
your unpaid 2023 annual fee.
The 2023 StillWaters vehicle window decals will be mailed to all property owners
who have paid their annual fee or signed an annual payment plan agreement on
February 15, 2023, along with the SWRA Board Election ballots.
The SWRA Nominating Committee has recommended three candidates for the
SWRA Board and one candidate is running by petition. The bios of all candidates will
be included in the mailout and may be found in this newsletter. Make sure to vote for
3 people on your ballot and return your ballot by 5 pm on March 3, 2023. Owners of
multiple properties should enter the number of lots owned and vote for up to three
candidates per lot. The election results will be announced at the SWRA Annual
Meeting on Saturday, March 11, 2023, at 10:00 am at The Church of The Living
Waters in Waters. Please plan to attend!
So far, we have had a very favorable response to the voluntary payment request for
implementing additional security patrols in StillWaters. The Board will be working
on this in the upcoming weeks to iron out the details. We want to thank each property
owner who chose to make this payment. If you have not donated but would like to
contribute $50 or more, please send a check or drop it off at the office and mark it
VOLUNTARY SECURITY PATROL. Working together, we will make our
community as safe as possible for all of our residents.
As the weather warms up, SWRA will begin with budgeted paving projects that have been
deemed appropriate by the SWRA road engineer. Also, cleanup is continuing all over
Waters after the bad storms we experienced in the past month. Much of this has
had to be outsourced because the trees are just too large for our landscaping equipment
and staff to safely handle.
The SWRA Board has been working towards a rewrite and cleanup of our By-laws as much of the
language is outdated. Several focus group meetings were held in order to review and gain
input from property owners. Annual fees and assessments are controlled by the Covenants,
not the By-laws, so this is not about increasing fees. It is an effort to clarify our documents
as there is no longer a Developer or different classes of membership for property owners.
The Rules & Regulations for SWRA will be more clearly defined. Please watch for further information
as we move forward with this update. A redlined version will be mailed later this year for your review and vote.
Spring is right around the corner, and I know we are all looking forward to enjoying the beauty of the season in StillWaters.
2023 promises to be a banner year for our community, if you are interested in becoming involved, please let us know.
There are ongoing committees as well as special committees appointed throughout the year.
Sally Gantt, SWRA President
