 Morning update, water came up last night in Holiday Lake and it looks to be still rising. The river has crested but with Lake Livingston so high I don’t expect the river to go down quickly. Water is back flowing in the pipe from the river to Ski Lake although the water is slightly flowing from Ski Lake to the river on the washed out road so it’s basically at a standoff.

 FEMA site it open for Polk County, make sure you put in your application


Since we're not going to have our monthly meeting this month, we are having a special meeting on Wednesday the 22nd at 6p.m.
 The purpose will be to finalizing the pool fees and schedule.  Please plan on attending. 


Due to our current circumstances we have decided to not have aour monthly meeting.
  Please reach out and help your neighbors. 



POSTED ON BEHALF OF THE ELECTION NOMINATING COMMITTEE;

I know the the election is probably the last thing on people’s minds right now… just a quick reminder:
If you have recently bought property in HLE or have changed your mailing address & have not already notified our bookkeeper, please contact her as soon as possible so that she can get the HLE records updated. She will be sending out the election ballots by the end of this month!

If you are displaced & have temporary changed your address, I assume the Post Office will send your ballot to the forwarding address they have on file.

PLEASE VOTE!!

Posted on behalf of the Board Election Nominating Committee: More postings to come.

These have been very trying times for all of the residents/property owners of HLE, to say the least! At some point in time (hopefully very soon), life will start to return to normal, whatever that looks like now! Hopefully, the folks that have been flooded can start to rebuild their lives! Our hearts and prayers go out to each and everyone of you. It might be a longer road for some than others.

There is really no “good” time to post this, but there is a bit of a lull today, so here goes. Our HLE board debated on whether to try and postpone our annual board elections, but have decided to go ahead with it. We know that the postal service has been delayed or stopped for some, altogether. With the roads in the process of being repaired, hopefully the mail service will get back to normal.

I know this is probably the last thing on peoples’ minds right now, but we respectfully ask that people please look out for your ballots around the end of this month and VOTE! The last couple of years, the return rate of the ballots has decreased & decreased! Last year, only about 75 ballots out of ALL of the property owners were returned! That’s not a very good turn-out! This is YOUR board!! Lets all continue to do our part in our community! PLEASE VOTE!

GENERAL ELECTION INFORMATION:

(1) A separate P.O. Box has been rented to return ballots that will be different from the regular HLECC P.O. Box 274, Goodrich. The separate P.O. Box (#257, Goodrich, TX 77335) will be listed on the ballots. You may also hand in your ballot at the Civic Center the morning of the election meeting by 8:00 am. Ballots received after 8:00 am, will NOT be counted. No exceptions.
NOTE: If you return your ballots to the regular HLECC P.O. Box 274, there is a good chance your ballot will NOT be counted. Kay picks up mail at P.O. Box 274 & she does not come to the annual meeting!

(2) The Post Master will retain the key to the separate ballot P.O. Box #257 until the evening before the election. The ballots will be picked up by a Deputy Constable ONLY the evening before the June Annual Business Meeting and not prior thereto. The Deputy Constable will hold the ballots overnight and deliver them to the annual meeting prior to 7:30am for counting.

(3) According to State Statute, a ballot cannot be counted if not signed by the current record owner of the property. Please don’t forget to sign or your ballot is invalid.

(4) ARTICLES IX & X of our ByLaws (1st reading 8/25/2007 & 2nd reading 9/29/2007; 3rd reading & Vote on 10/27/2007; passed by residents in attendance). Corrected by the following:
CHANGE: Property is defined as platted tracts on which maintenance fees are paid. Voting rights shall be interpreted as follows:
1. Husband and wife as joint owners of property – one (1) vote.
2. Multiple owners as joint owners of property – one (1) vote.
3. Estate-owned shall be considered single property owner – one (1) vote

(5) Texas Property Code Sec. 209.0059. RIGHT TO VOTE: (a) A provision in a dedicatory instrument that would disqualify a property owner from voting in any property owners’ association election of board members or on any matter concerning the rights or responsibilities of the owner is void. “. NOTE: A legal property owner can vote regardless if they owe maintenance dues or not.






POSTED ON BEHALF OF THE ELECTION NOMINATING COMMITTEE

This year, the Election Committee will NOT host a “Meet & Greet the Candidates”.

This informal meeting was designed to allow the property owners to come to the clubhouse to meet the board candidates, ask questions about where the candidates stand on issues of importance to our community & get to know them before the board election ballots are sent out, so you will know who you’re voting for.

Due to the lack of property owners’ participation in the last 2-3 years, this event will be cancelled. Last year only 3 property owners came.

Please remember: if you recently bought property in HLE or changed your address and have not notified our Bookkeeper, Kay Hardy, please do so immediately so that she can update the Property Owners’ database before the ballots are mailed towards the end of May. Labels for the ballots are printed out via this database to mail the Election ballots to all property owners.

POSTED ON BEHALF OF THE ELECTION NOMINATING COMMITTEE:

Below is the bio submitted by Rick Havens for application to serve on the HLECC board.
Thank you Rick for your willingness to serve our community!

My name is Rick Havens and I am expressing my interest in becoming a board member on HLECC.

My wife and I purchased in HLE in Feb of 2019. We moved out here permanently in February of 2022.

I have been involved with the customer service industry since 1984. Starting with Continental and now with United. I was elected to represent our customer service work group comprising of over 15,000 employees. I met with our corporate headquarters with matters pertaining to our work group as well as working together with the other departments. We negotiated workrules, pay and workplace procedures. I represented employees in all levels of disciplinary process.

With almost 40 years in the customer service department, especially in the airline industry, you learn how to deal with just about everything. I feel that I have the ability to look at situations from all sides and come up with a solution that is equitable for all involved.

Whether we're on the board or not, my wife and I are committed to helping our community improve.

Posted 2/21/23

Good day to all.

February 25 at 9am is the regularly scheduled HLECC HOA Meeting.   At 12 noon we will host the final information session for 211 where the community can come and hear what 211 is about and how it can benefit Holiday Lake Estates.  Come with your questions and voice your concerns as all community members are welcome to attend.

The following are the bullet points of 211. What it is, why we need it, how it will be voted on, how it’s adoption can help the community.

 

211 Bullet Points

-Current process: the board needs 2/3 of the property owner’s votes to propose changes to anything in the by-laws which have been in place since the 1960’s. If 211 is passed, this gives the property owners who actively vote the voice and silences the dormant property owners. What this means is instead of 2/3 of total property owners within Holiday Lake Estates, we will need 2/3 of voting owners to have the majority.  With that, the people who vote will have the voice of the community.

-To pass 211, the 2/3’s rule is still in effect but only for the number of returned votes and not 2/3’s of total property owners. owners

-If 211 is passed and adopted, then property owners will have a chance to make a motion in one of the monthly board meetings to place an issue on the yearly ballot for the community to vote on, and the majority of the returned votes will be the decision.

-211 will not give the board all of the power; it awards the voting property owners the power.

-211 will not allow the board to tell you what color to paint your house, what type of grass or plants you must have, etc. It will, however, allow the board a better chance of enhancing the community in terms of common area upkeep; to include park maintenance, pool maintenance, boat ramps, clubhouse, and signage, among many other things the community needs.

-211 does not change the number of votes a property owner has. If you own 1 lot, you still have 1 vote; if you have 20 lots, you have 20 votes. The ONLY time each property owner has ONE vote is to vote on the 211 itself. This is from the state property code and not the by-laws of HLECC.

We invite the community members to come be a part of this discussion so please join us because, this is not only for your future but your kids and their kids.

Thank you and we hope you can attend.

 

Posted 1/30/2023

Hope everyone is staying dry, warm and doing well. This past weekend's meeting went very well, we had a good turnout of the community and thank you for attending. A few key topics were about the dogs running loose in the community and what can be done by the community to solve the problem. We also talked about 211 and when the next Town Hall Meetings will be held. The next meeting for 211 where the community can come and hear what 211 really is about and how it can benefit Holiday Lake Estates, ask questions and voice concerns will be held February 11th at 5PM and then there will be a follow up meeting February 25th at 12 noon which will be right after the monthly scheduled meeting that starts at 9am. Other things that were discussed were the work weeks where us as community volunteer a few hours on the third weekend of the month to do things such as mow, weed eat, clear trees from levees and pick up trash to help beautify the community. If you would like to volunteer you can get in touch with a board member and we would gladly let you know where to meet for that week however, we usually meet at the spillway between 8 and 8:30am the Saturday of that third week. Feel free to join us. Please be on the lookout for the meeting minutes in weeks ahead for more information. 



Posted 12/25/2022

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to everyone. This is a great community and we are excited to what this next year brings us. If we can all work together as a community we, us, as a community can make things better. God bless us all!!!

When:  Dec 10, 2022 @ 4PM

Where:  HLE Community Center

Why:  Provide information and feedback to resident’s questions and concerns about the 211 process and outcomes.

The current restrictions were written by a developer many years ago who didn’t realize that participation in a subdivision is never going to be a majority of the property owners, so making a provision to allow the voting members to make decisions is the only way HLE will be able to change the restrictions and move forward with enough revenue to actually run the subdivision properly.    

How:  Sec. 211.004.  CREATION OR MODIFICATION OF PROCEDURE TO AMEND RESTRICTIONS. 

(a)  A property owners' association by a two-thirds vote of the association's governing body may submit a procedure for amending restrictions to a vote of the property owners in the subdivision or in the unit or parcel of the subdivision governed by restrictions.

(b)  An amendment procedure submitted to a vote under Subsection (a) binds all property owners in the subdivision or the unit or parcel of the subdivision to which the procedure applies if more than two-thirds of the voting property owners vote in favor of the procedure.

This is the home page of the Holiday Lake Estates Civic Club, Inc. We represent a property owners association of a subdivision located 75 miles north of Houston adjacent to the Sam Houston National Forest. Our mission is to help protect, maintain and preserve the properties owned by association members and to enhance the quality of life of the families in our community. The Board of Directors anticipate that this website will enable our residents to be informed about activities in our neighborhood as well as to learn about the governing documents affecting the subdivision.

We hope that our property owners will participate in the association by attending Board Meetings, volunteering to help maintain the parks and common lands owned by the community and promptly paying maintenance fees when invoiced. These annual assessments along with proper adherence to the subdivision's by-laws and deed restrictions will help maintain the appearance of our neighborhood and keep property values high for the benefit of all residents
