Assessments

As outlined in the Orchard Brook Covenants, homeowner association operations are funded by an annual assessment. Funds collected are primarily used to pay for maintenance of the pool, clubhouse, common areas and gaslights.

If you have questions regarding assessments, please send them to the assessor using the form at the bottom of this page.
