Posted 6/2/2020 - PLEASE READ
At its May 12 meeting, the Sunland Village Board authorized the reopening of several SVCA facilities, including the pools and fitness center, subject to certain restrictions that were deemed necessary to safely allow some facilities to be opened. Use of the reopened facilities was limited to Sunland Village Residents ONLY. Billboard signs were placed at the entrances to certain facilities stating:
Residents only, No Guests, No Children.
The Board and your fellow residents appreciate your cooperation in complying with the restrictions. Unfortunately, some residents have ignored the restrictions put in place to allow facility reopening. The Resolution adopted by the Board clearly stated that residents who failed to comply with the rules would have their fobs deactivated. To date, letters and phone calls have been made to residents violating the rules to remind them that guests are not allowed. Office staff have been verbally berated. Two weeks should be sufficient time for residents to understand the rules.
Therefore, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, there will be NO reminder letters and phone calls and violators will have their fobs deactivated when the violation occurs. We hope this action will be sufficient so that facilities can remain open.
Thank you again for your cooperation.
Bonnie Sims, SVCA Board President
