In July of 2005 our association leveled a special to pay for the construction of our new back porches.
Each two bedroom in the association was responsible for a $3,976.00 assessment.
Some people paid in chunks, some paid monthly---I'm in the later group.
After 28 months of payments I'm thrilled to report that I have paid $3,108.00 of my total special assessment. That leaves $868 left to pay.
I'm tempted to pay it off in one fell swoop but since I don't know when I'm going to get a job, perhaps it's just best for me to continue paying it off in addition to my monthly assessment.
I'm under $1,000. This milestone has been a long time coming.
