MLCA hosted its annual meeting last Thursday evening, July 28. As you might imagine, one of the agenda topics was the landscaping work the board has undertaken, as well as the change in landscape contractor. The change in landscape contractor was first brought up in the context of the annual budget. The Blade Runners contract is significantly more expensive than our previous contractor and to cover the additional cost we will have to raise our dues.
Such increases are never popular, but there is good news: everyone in attendance agreed the landscaping looks very nice, and so there were zero objections when we explained the need to raise dues. Everyone agreed this is money well spent. One fellow not often complimentary of the board wrote us “The landscape seems more brilliant and adds to our street scape. And thanks for that.”
Thank you for the fine job the crew is doing. It’s very pleasant coming into our neighborhood and seeing well-kept lawns, trimmed sidewalks and flower beds without weeds. It’s a dramatic improvement, and we’re all very happy with the change.
