With yesterday's hail and storm damage, Channahon will likely see an increase in solicitors assessing homes for repair.

All solicitors in Channahon need to first be permitted through the Village and display their permit(s) when soliciting door to door.

With any work done to your home, please ensure any contractor is licensed, insured, and bonded.

You can contact the Village of Channahon @ (815)467-6644. For suspicious activity contact the Channahon Police through 911 for emergencies or (815)467-5152 for non-emergencies.

BOATS, CAMPERS, & TRAILERS

Beautiful weather brings many opportunities for summer activities and many Highland residents enjoy summer boating, camping, or exploring in their RV’s or on an ATV. This post is a reminder that the covenants in all of the units equally stipulate in section 3.14 that the “outside storage or parking of any mobile home, trailer (either with or without wheels), motor home, tractor, truck (other than pick-up trucks), commercial vehicles of any type, camper, motorized camper or camper trailer, boat or other watercraft, boat trailer, motorcycle, motorized bicycle, motorized go-cart or any other related forms of transportation devices are expressly prohibited.

Noncompliance with this covenant stipulation will result with Board action.

Please contact the Board if you have any questions about section 3.14 or any other section of the Highland Homeowner’s Covenants, Thank you and enjoy your summer!


ASSESSMENTS or ANNUAL DUES

As assessments have been recorded, many missing addresses have been identified. Please be advised that all addresses and new owners will be updated this SPRING and additional mailings will be sent in April.

2015 Assessment

Yes, it is that time again, assessments are due and they are in the mail. All checks need to be posted by March 1st, 2015 to avoid late charges.The good news is Dues will remain $60 for the 2015 assessment year!!! Unfortunately, the PAYPAL credit card option will not be available to homeowners this year. We are attempting to establish a "business account" for the HOA, but the previous PAYPAL account was a personal account and cannot be used this year. The new business account will be established by next year so we appreciate your patience.

    SHOULD THE HIGHLANDS SUBDIVISION BE GOVERNED BY ONE COVENANT INSTEAD OF NINE?
Posted by tchadmin on Friday, July 31 @ 13:07:10 CDT (2 reads)
Announcements SHOULD THE HIGHLANDS SUBDIVISION BE GOVERNED BY ONE COVENANT INSTEAD OF NINE?

Currently the subdivision is divided into 9 units. Each unit has a unique covenant that governs that section. Many members have inquired if the entire HOA should be governed by only one covenant. Would it be possible or even wanted by the membership. The Board would like additional feedback from the members prior to moving forward on this idea.

Thank you,
Dr. Kelly Manning-Smith
HOA President

    POND TREATMENT 7/9
Posted by tchadmin on Thursday, July 09 @ 18:53:02 CDT (9 reads)
Announcements The ponds were treated again and Lauren, Highland and Jacob ponds have drinking and irrigation restrictions. Please keep your pets away from the water for three more days.

The good news is the LPC members are reviewing two bids for the summer clean up of the ponds. This will be the first debris & weed clean out since the HOA took over managing the Highlands. Letters will go out to the pond owners and the Village has approved the clean up process. This will begin to address the safety and drainage issues due to 9 foot vegetation and debris covering the inlets and outlets.
