    Common Area Maintenance Fees (Dues)- Every year during the PIPOA Board election season, the question of will CAM fees be increased. There will be NO increase in CAM fees for 2023. It requires a 51% vote to amend covenants in each subdivision within the PIPOA to raise CAM fees. Furthermore, this issue will not be on the ballot.

    Dock Builders- Dock builders, continue to place pilings and other construction materials on PIPOA boat ramps. The rules for dock builders are that they must identify who the owner of the materials is, the location where the pilings will be installed, and how to contact the dock builder. The PIPOA has had and continues to have a problem with the builders. The builders drop the materials with no identification of ownership. The pilings often sit on the ramp for several weeks. Builders, if you fail to identify the materials, the PIPOA will consider the materials abandoned and possibly put them up for auction. It would be unfortunate for the builders to lose the materials. Builders, your cooperation, please.

    Towing- Over the weekend, six vehicles and three trailers were towed from the boat ramps. You can purchase your vehicle and boat trailer stickers at the PIPOA office located at 14015 Fortuna Bay Drive. The vehicle sticker is $5.00, and the trailer sticker is $10.00.

    Board Meeting- The next PIPOA Board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, December 13, 2022, at 5:30 pm at the Padre Island Baptist Church located across from Whataburger. All PIPOA members are invited to attend.

    La Posada- December 9th will be the boat parade on the North canals, and December 10th will be the boat parade in the South canals. For a full listing of dates and events, go to the La Posada Facebook page. La Posada invites those participating in the boat parade to a boat decorating party on Saturday, December 3, 2022, at 10:00 AM.
