WHAT ARE MY ANNUAL HOA DUES (ASSESSMENTS) USED FOR?

Foxmoor Association Inc. is a self-managed homeowner’s association governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.  Annual assessments are used to pay the community’s liability insurance, state and county taxes, county utilities and other operational budgets items like lawn care and maintenance of the common areas, office supplies and equipment to operation the association, maintenance of the community’s amenities.  A small percentage of the annual assessment is placed in reserve to fund programed replacement of community property and equipment as well as unforecasted expenses due like legal fees and broken equipment.

WHO IS FOXMOOR UTILITY COMPANY AND WHAT IS A “FRONT FOOT ASSESSMENT"?

The Front Foot Assessment is a fee paid by the developer of this community, Wiggins and Utz, and Later Snyder, for the county installed water, sewer and (where applicable) natural gas utilities when the houses were built.  That fee is passed onto the homeowner and payments are spread out over a 30 year span.  Each homeowner’s annual fee is based on the cost for those utilities when the house was built, therefore the annual front foot assessment for homes built in the 1980s are different than the homes built in the 1990s.  The Front Foot Assessment is attached to the property, so when a home is sold, the new owner picks up the remaining payment cycle.  Foxmoor Utility Company is a business that bought out the front foot assessments from the developers and collects these fees.  Foxmoor Utility Company is not affiliated in any way with our homeowner’s association, Foxmoor Association Inc. None of the fees collected benefit Foxmoor Association Inc.
