2023 Dues and Assessments Info
Annual Dues and Assessment bills for 2023 have been mailed. Please note your 2023 Assessments have increased by 10%. This decision was not made lightly but was thoughtfully implemented to keep pace with inflationary increases hitting all of us. The 2023 Social Security Cost of Living Adjustment has been set at 8.7% and is the largest since 1981. It is based on shifts in the Consumer Price Index which charts fluctuations for goods and services. While an increase in our Association expense is not what any property owner wants, the alternative is degradation of services and no property owner wants that. Your Board of Directors continues to be creative in finding cost effective methods to improve our community and ensure our amenities are available to everyone. This will continue throughout the fiscal year.
Dues and assessments are payable by May 1, 2023. Late charges will be assessed on any account not paid by that date. Avoid unnecessary charges and pay your assessed amount on or before May 1, 2023. If you are in the process of selling your home and/or lots, you must pay your billed amount. Your title agency can prorate the dues and assessments you have paid based on your closing date.
Dues and Assessments will be mailed out this week. You may pay your Dues and Assessments in installments, however, a late charge of 10% will be applied to the remaining balance after May 1st.
There are several different payment options available.
Checks, credit cards/debit cards and cash are accepted at our office location (1875 US Highway 6). There is a 5% convenience fee for credit/debit cards. Our office hours until mid-April are Tuesday – Saturday, 9am – 5pm. You may also use our dropbox located on the front porch. The box is under video surveillance and emptied daily.
Bank Bill Pay:
Many banks offer their customer’s bill pay through their website. You can set the RomeRock Association as a payee. If you use this option to pay your Dues and Assessments, please make sure to set your Account Number as your Lot number(s). Your lot number is your property address.
Note: If you already use your bank’s Bill Pay feature to pay your RSV water bill, make sure to create a new, separate payee for the RomeRock Association with the mailing address of P.O. Box 8, Rome, OH 44085 as we are a separate entity from the Village and their Utility Department.
You can send your payment via US Mail to P.O. Box 8, Rome, OH 44085. Checks and credit cards/debit cards are accepted. If paying by credit/debit card please use form on the back of the return portion of your statement, there is a 5% fee. Be sure to include the 3 digit code on the back of your card.
