Updated Assessments - May 1, 2022 – April 30th, 2023:

The new budget has passed and assessments for the 2023 Fiscal Year (May 1, 2022 – April 30, 2023) will be $720 annually or $62/month if you choose to pay monthly ($60/month + $2 service fee).


COUPON MAILING DELAY:

It has come to our attention that we’re experiencing a mailing delay with the new coupon books for FY2023 (May 1st, 2022-April 30, 2023). We are truly sorry for this inconvenience. As of last Friday all coupons and budget letters have been mailed out, so please keep on the lookout for your copy to arrive within the next few days, if you have not received yours already.

Please note that there are still several ways to pay your assessments on time without a coupon:

· Pay via ClickPay by credit card or e-check.

****Please be aware that when making a one-time payment in Click Pay, you MUST edit the dollar amount if you intend to pay for the year in full . By default it will only show the monthly amount of $62.00 as the amount due when you first go in to pay.****

· Drop off a check or money order to the MPOA office during office hours, now extended on Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., all other weekdays open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

· Mail a check or money order to the MPOA office, please reference your account number in the MEMO field of the check. Don’t have your account number? Contact us at 703-670-6187 or by e-mail at info@montclairva.com to obtain it.


Please make all payments payable to Montclair POA. Assessments are due on May 1st, payments must be received by May 10th to avoid a late fee.

 

Committee Members Wanted!

The Communications and Signage Committees are looking for members to join. Here is a brief description of each committee:

Ad Hoc Signage Committee research, discuss, and will develop a plan to secure professional design options to replace current Montclair signs that are consistent in material, style, and theme, while also embodying the "Montclair Community." Signs for consideration are all entrance, beach, and event signs.

The Communications Committee provides creative and technical methods to enhance all avenues of communications between the Board of Directors and Members of the Association, as well as suggesting methods of facilitating information flow from sources outside of the Montclair community.
