Understanding how the community budget works
- Created on Monday, 30 October 2017 16:54
Harrington Lifestyle Services has been responding to many queries from residents regarding requests for a variety of additional services or equipment such as increased security, additional parks, the installation of bubblers, security cameras and garbage bins around the estate, an indoor swimming pool, gym equipment, more free aerobics classes etc. It is important for the community to realise that since February 2017, Harrington Grove’s sole source of income is now the levy fees paid by the community. The Community’s budget has been set according to these fees and that budget is approved by the Community Association and then managed by HLS. Any large variations to this budget would need to be approved by the Executive Committee of the Community Association, and could only occur by reducing the same amount from another area within the budget or by increasing the levies.
