Very pleased res­i­dent

The Weekly Vista - - News -

As a res­i­dent of Bella Vista since 2010, I would like to say that I am very pleased with the work of the POA and city coun­cil. They have worked very hard to keep our city beau­ti­ful and well-main­tained. Tom Jud­son and staff show a high de­gree of pro­fes­sion­al­ism that makes me proud and hope­ful for the fu­ture of our city.

My fa­ther built An­der­son’s Ca­juns Wharf and Shorty Smalls restau­rants in Ar­kan­sas, and I know the cost of try­ing to run an in­de­pen­dent restau­rant.

It be­hooves us to keep these fa­cil­i­ties un­der our man­age­ment in­stead of a lessee as the cost of com­pet­ing with big cor­po­rate restau­rant chains is too much.

As a prop­erty owner, I am very glad that we have these fine high-qual­ity fa­cil­i­ties to which we can take guests and vis­i­tors. Also, I’m in fa­vor of keep­ing our lakes for POA mem­bers and guests only. Con­cern­ing golf fees and what BV golf guests pay ver­sus what a prop­erty owner pays, I un­der­stand Tom Jud­son’s view that we have to keep golf fees in line with other cour­ses and we need the guest in­come.

I pay my monthly dues too even though I don’t golf; but, I do use the lakes, trails, fit­ness cen­ter, etc. So we all pay our monthly dues just to main­tain all of our fa­cil­i­ties whether we use them or not. I am cer­tainly for an in­crease in our monthly dues when that vote oc­curs.

Let’s watch the num­ber of young fam­i­lies and the num­ber of chil­dren in our town over the next few years to de­ter­mine when would be an ap­pro­pri­ate time for a new com­mu­nity cen­ter.

Keep up the great work POA and Mayor Christie, and a heart­felt thanks to those of you that vol­un­teer!
