For many, many years the ECHPOA annual family membership dues have not been changed and remained a low $35 per year. However, because there are so many needed community improvement projects, and the cost of utilities, insurance, taxes, and supplies have gone up, the board has decided to increase the annual membership dues by $5 for next year. Therefore, dues for 2016 will be $40 per year. Fishing permits will remain at $25 per year, which includes 4 fishing badges per family. However, as an incentive to pay early, if you pay for your 2016 membership dues before December 1, 2015, you will pay the 2015 amount of $35. Beginning December 1st, you will need to pay $40 for your 2016 membership.
You have to be a member to use any of the community property and to have a vote in any community decision. Obtaining a fishing permit is optional but required to fish, and the money helps us purchase fish and fish food annually. Annual membership and fishing permits expire December 31st of the same year purchased for. Any property owner in the Elk Creek Highlands or Elk Creek Meadows subdivisions may become a member of ECHPOA by paying the yearly dues. Renters may also become members; however, they do not have voting rights.
