We are excited to share that our new automatic gate opening system is launching in January.
The system uses license plate reading technology to open the main and south gates automatically. The new system combines convenience and security and frees the police to screen non-registered vehicles. The police will register residents first, followed by the school, club, and church, replacing tags.
The following charges are not finalized until approved by the Board of Trustees at the November 17 meeting. Comments welcome.
Home and Property Owners, and (Rentors or Rentees TBD):
As a one-time expense, you will be asked to pay for the equipment and installation of the system because it is not included in the 2021-2022 budget.
Year one only – Equipment and installation are $19,938, which comes close to $30 per property. You may register an unlimited number of vehicles, including family members, parents, and domestic help, for a one-time (not per vehicle) payment of $30. Vehicles remain registered as long as you own a home, property, rent, and vehicle.
All subsequent years – No more one-time payments - The $6,000 annual system operating cost is included in the yearly budget (starting in 2022-2023).
