Remarks: It is important to know and
understand - Pine Mountain has created budget

title of Dues/Services to all members. We also

depending on future requirements to separate and
consolidate all water and sewer costs from general
charges. For this reason - the numbers do not seem
to match up and appears we are not meeting our goals of
paying a sufficient amount towards both water and sewer.
