The Seven Lakes Landowners Association [SLLA] Board appears ready to undo a change to the guest card policy that was implemented just a few months ago.
Community Manager Ray Sohl, during the Board’s Monday, May 13 Work Session, said the new policy, which requires that guest cards be assigned to a particular individual, had resulted in “some very serious complaints about the new fees.” The office had been “inundated” with complaints, he added.
The longstanding SLLA guest card policy had allowed Association members to pay $25 for four guest cards that entitled guests to the use of any of the community amenities.
Motivated by a concern that overuse by guests was increasing Association expenses, the previous Board of Directors took the stables and the Northside pool out of the guest card system, implementing a separate fee schedule for use of each of those amenities.
Continuing in the same vein, they tightened up use of the guest card to access the remaining amenities, requiring that guest cards be purchased for specific individuals, rather than being transferrable from, for example, one group of grandchildren visiting on Memorial Day and a separate group visiting on July 4th.
