An audit of the marina has been
completed. This is to ensure that the
assignments of boat slips are done in a
fair and equitable manner. This audit is
a rather time consuming process
requiring a lot of detailed work. We are
happy to announce that our procedures
and record keeping were deemed to be in
good order. We received a clean bill of
health from the auditor. The financial
accounts for the marinas and their upkeep
will be kept separate from the regular
accounts of the Association. In the very
near future, the center dock of the Hall
Haven marina must be replaced.
We owe a debt of gratitude to the
founders of our town. They had a clear
vision of what they hoped our town would
become. Covenants were developed to ensure
an orderly development of the town along
with some guidelines to achieve that end.
These guidelines, covenants, are part of all
property owners’ deeds and go with the land.
You all have seen them and signed them when
you purchased your property.
Life thirty years ago was much more
unhurried and relaxed. In that context they
codified certain restraints upon future
associations. For instance, covenants for PKA
may only be changed every five years and
dues may be adjusted every three years.
Any changes of these covenants must be
approved by you, the Association member, at
a duly authorized meeting. As the town has
progressed, times have changed. In the view
of the Board of Directors the five and three
year constraints are proving unworkable due
to many factors over which we have little
control. While the review of the covenants is
a work in progress, you will receive our
recommendations for changes within the next
several months when you are notified of the
By the time you read this, spring will be
here, hopefully, and we will all be cleaning up
our yards after a rather bitter winter. Please
remember the guidelines for garbage and yard
waste collection. Briefly;
• Yard waste is collected on the last
Thursday each month.
• Yard waste is to be placed out not more
than 72 hours prior to the collection date.
• Limbs, debris, leaves, straw, shrubbery
and bush clippings, grass and weed
trimmings must be bagged; boxed or placed
in approved containers.
• Limbs, shrubbery and other materials
shall not be longer than 4 feet and must be
tied into bundles not larger than 18” in
diameter and not to exceed 50 lbs, in weight.
• Waste Industries picks up white goods
on Fridays. You must call them to arrange
for the removal. The fee is $25.00.
• Bulk items are collected once a year on
The Town Commissioners have added
some extra days for yard waste pickup. The
new dates for the next three months are:
• March 17 and 31
• April 14 and 22
• May 12 and 26
THE ABOVE REQUIREMENTS ARE
IN EFFECT FOR THESE SPECIAL DAYS
Summer and grass cutting will soon be
upon us. Please make sure you do not put your
yard waste out too early. That will hinder the
grass cutting in the right of way.
The PKA Board accepted the resignation
of Lee Parker, a member, due to personal
reasons. The Board and the members of the
Association want to thank him for his valuable
insight and work for PKA. The vacancy will
be filled later in the year.
