Snow Plowing Information

The Association’s responsibilities regarding snow plowing are described below:

Townhome Neighborhoods

The Association is responsible for plowing snow in all the townhome neighborhood streets and parking areas. Residents are responsible for removing snow directly behind their vehicles. Some additional accumulation of snow behind your vehicles should be expected when the plow truck pushes snow (this cannot be avoided as they cannot risk damage to vehicles).

Single-Family Home Streets

All streets in the single-family home sections are the responsibility of VDOT. If you need snow plowing on any of the state dedicated streets in the single-family home sections, please call VDOT at (703) 383-8368. You can also visit VDOT’s Website at www.VirginiaDOT.org for Snow Removal info for Single Family state maintained streets. The Association does not plow snow from the pipe stems.  The individual owners who share the common roads (pipe stems) are responsible for their own snow plowing.

Sidewalks

The Association is not responsible for plowing or removing snow from any sidewalks, except the Community Center sidewalk. Efforts will be made to clear sidewalks at the school bus stops only after VDOT has plowed their roads. As a courtesy and safety precaution for students, snow will be removed from the sidewalk along Sully Park Drive from Stone Road to Braddock Road on the Ormond Stone School side only, once VDOT has cleared snow from Sully Park Drive.

Policy Resolution 1 & 11 Approved

Dear Sully Station II Community Association Member:

In accordance with the provisions of Policy Resolution II of the bylaws for Sully Station II Community Association Policy Resolution 1 & 11 have been approved during the August 2015 meeting. For you convenience we have attached a copy for you to view. If you have any questions please contact the main office.

Policy Resolution 1

Policy Resolution 11

Avoid increases in Home Owner Monthly Fees - Pay by the 1st of the month!

I want to share with all Sully Station II Members that the Association is currently operating a Home Owner Association (HOA) delinquency rate of 6.4%. The Industry standard rate is about 5 %, with several Northern Virginia associations near 2%. There are many reasons that can result in a delinquent account; however, ANY delinquency has negative consequences for our community. The Sully Station II Board of Trustees (BOT) has taken actions this past year to reduce the delinquency rate from a high of 9.6% – down to the current rate.

The BOT has fiduciary responsibilities to manage the Association’s operations to the benefit of all Members. The Association is a non-profit organization and requires Members to contribute their financial obligations, on time, allowing the many expenses of the Community to be met. The Members are obligated to pay their share of the expenses, the monthly HOA fee, by the 1st of each month. Payments received after the first of the month are late. Unfortunately, many feel they have the ability to “push” their payment until the 15th of the month and still be on time. However, we are now seeing many that do not make that goal – payments are coming in late and are accruing a late fee of $20. The BOT is now reviewing plans to place additional restrictions on accounts that are continuously late and accumulate late fees. Please plan and allow sufficient time so your payment is received before or exactly on the 1st of the month.

A popular method that the Board and Management have set up is the Automatic Debit Payment plan (ACH). The ACH will debit your account the same day every month and adjust the fee each year automatically. By using the ACH program you will never have to worry about paying on time and will not be late in payments. Best of all – its free of charge, no coupons and no postage to deal with! For on time payments and peace of mind the BOT encourages all Members to sign up for the ACH program and ensure your financial responsibilities to the HOA are met. The Board especially encourages those members that are having difficulty paying on-time by the 1st of the month to sign up for this program.

If you would like more information on ACH payment program please go the top bar of the Sully2.com website, or contact our FSR Community Management Staff, Robert Martin (703-266-2020) or Luigi Solloso (703-266-2044), for more details.

By making payments on time you will be protecting the value of one of your most important investments – your home and community!
