Notice: Temporary Changes to HOA Policy During Coronavirus Outbreak

Neighbors,

On behalf of the Meadows of Kyle Homeowners Association Board of Directors, I want to thank every one of our members for taking all the necessary self-isolation precautions that are keeping our community and loved ones safe.

In times like this, I’m reminded we are all members of the same human family. Keeping this in mind gives me confidence we will make it through this crisis, especially if we all do our part to help.

The Coronavirus outbreak has caused a lot of strain on our day-to-day life making even minor errands like grocery shopping more difficult and in some cases has even resulted in layoffs or economic pressure. In response to the economic crisis that has been born from the Coronavirus outbreak, I have proposed to the Board of Directors and they have agreed to enact policies to try and support each household. Like each of you, the Board is trying to do our small part to help.

Effective today, we will temporarily be halting compliance fines and replace them with courtesy notices. Excessive violators may still see compliance fines should courtesy notices go completely unanswered, these situations will be dealt with by the Board on a case by case basis. In addition, we will not be charging late fees for unpaid HOA assessments (dues). Your assessments are still due on schedule, but if your household has a hard time paying on-time during this crisis we don’t want you to feel the pain of additional fees and penalties. This will have the effect of deferring your assessments until you can make payment. If you find yourself struggling to pay your assessments please reach out to our Manager, Bobby Humphries at Bobby.Humphries@goodwintx.com to make arrangements or just to provide a courtesy notice of your inability to pay.

Lastly, the Board has agreed to pause all ongoing foreclosure proceedings and will temporarily suspend future enforcement liens and foreclosures.

The Board’s continuing responsibility is to ensure that our community property is maintained, our home values are protected, and your money is well managed. We will assess how best to do that during this outbreak and make adjustments to our approach as needed.

We will discuss these issues at our April 7th teleconference meeting (more info to come soon) and provide new updates in mid-April. If you have any questions or concerns, please visit our website or email us at mok.board@gmail.com.

Thank you,
Cody DeSalvo, President
Meadows of Kyle Residential Community, Inc.

Important Notice Regarding COVID-19: Community Response

Neighbors,
I have spoken with the Hays County Local Health Authority and at this time Hays County is recommending that all communities take steps to discourage gatherings of 50 people or more. In order to protect the health and safety of our community, as well as comply with federal, state, and local guidance regarding coronavirus (COVID-19)
I have directed Goodwin Management to postpone the pool opening and ordered the closure of the following community spaces: the pool, the park, playground, and the pavilion.
I will reassess these closures in mid-April.
Many people are seeking information about what to do during this situation. There is a lot of information out there and commentators on various cable news channels are not reliable sources. I recommend bookmarking the Texas Department of State Health Services and Centers for Disease Control websites and follow their guidance. I found the CDC FAQ page particularly helpful in myth-busting some common misconceptions about the virus, please take a second to review.
With all of the current disruptions to our daily lives, I know this may not be welcome news to some, particularly with schools currently closed for Spring Break. My ongoing priority, as always, is making sure our community is as safe as it can be. We will discuss these issues at our April 7th Board meeting (which we may host by teleconference) and provide new updates in mid-April. If you have any questions or concerns, please visit our website or contact us at mok.board@gmail.com.

Tuesday Tip: Noise Ordinance

The Meadows of Kyle Subdivision falls under the jurisdiction and is governed by rules set forth by the city of Kyle. As such, residents of the Meadows are required to follow all regulations per the city code. There has been an increase in the number of complaints for noise violations in the neighborhood, so this week’s tip is a review of the City’s rule regarding noise.

The full and most current version of the rule can be found here: Article IV. NOISE

At the time of publication, the ordinance designates quiet hours as 10:00 pm to 7:00 am – During this period, loud music, motor vehicle stereos, outdoor movies, animals, etc should not be at such a volume that annoys or disturbs the quiet, comfort, or repose of any person with reasonable sensibilities. If a resident feels there has been a violation of this rule, they are within their rights to contact city police to file a formal complaint. Citations may be issued up to $500 per violation.

 

What constitutes a noise violation?

Please see the city code linked above for a more thorough description of prohibited noise.

Some examples include:

  • Loud music played via radio, musical instrument, stationary speaker, or motor vehicle
  • Loud/vociferous language, such as yelling or shouting
  • Long continued noise of any animal or fowl, such as a barking dog
  • Continued or frequent sounding of any car horn (unless it is meant to be a danger/warning signal)

How do I report a noise violation? 

We first encourage trying to resolve the matter with a face-to-face meeting between neighbors. If you are unable to speak with your neighbor, your neighbor is not receptive, or you cannot come to a reasonable understanding and the problem persists, please contact the City of Kyle Police Department. Noise complaints can be reported to the non-emergency line at 512.268.3232

 

As a reminder, the Homeowner’s Association does not have any authority regarding noise violations and all complaints should be reported to the city police department.
