This is part of a larger development call Commonwealth Center which includes restaurants and other retail space.

Annual Operating Budget

2017 Sully Station II Community Association Annual Operating Budget

Dear Sully Station II Members:

The Sully Station II Community Association Board of Trustees has approved the
2017 Annual Operating Budget. The Board and Management have held several meetings, including a presentation for residents, where each line item in the budget was discussed with the primary objective of controlling costs. The resulting 2017 Budget requires a small increase to cover expenses not offset by ongoing cost saving activities.

The following is a summary of the budget by category:

2016 2017
INCOME 1,541,666 1,559,500
EXPENSES
ADMINISTRATIVE 465,225 481,530
GENERAL MAINTENANCE 190,410 203,484
POOL 98,600 86,950
COMMUNITY CENTER 24,000 25,000
PROGRAMS 24,940 25,940
SINGLE FAMILY 104,797 105,951
ESTATES 54,303 55,720
TOWNHOMES 378,821 370,015
RESERVES 200,570 204,910
TOTAL EXPENSES 1,541,666 1,559,500
NET EXCESS/(DEFICIT) 0 0

 

A detailed breakdown of the budget is available at:

2017 Budget Summary

The following is a breakdown of the monthly assessment rates:

2016 2017 % Change
TOWNHOMES $97.25 $97.90 0.67% Increase
SINGLE FAMILY $81.45 $83.20 2.15% Increase
ESTATE HOMES $128.50 $131.80 2.57% Increase

 

The slight increase in assessment rate for all segments of the community is primarily driven by inflation increases included in contracts and by the contribution to Reserves. Annual Reserve Contributions are determined by the Reserve Study which was conducted in 2016 by an independent contractor certified by the state of Virginia. The Reserve Study serves as a detailed plan for the replacement of Association assets.

FirstService Residential Services will be ordering the Assessment Coupon Books for each Member of the Association that is not currently participating in the Automatic Debit program. The intent is to have all coupon books received by the Members by the end of December 2016. When your coupon book arrives, please review it for accuracy. The Board of Trustees encourages you to consider using the Automatic Debit program to reduce Association costs of printing and mailing the coupon books each year. The registration form is available at:

ACH Debit Application
