Fee upheld in separate court case
A former Lake Monticello resident lost his battle against what he saw as “double-dipping” dues charges by the Lake Monticello Owners’ Association (LMOA).
But in a separate court case on Sept. 6, the fee, which affects about 300 families, was upheld by a judge, said Catherine Neelley, LMOA general manager.
When Dan Carre’s employer transferred him to Pennsylvania in the summer of 2015, he tried unsuccessfully to sell his Lake Monticello home. Eventually he decided to rent it out instead – but was surprised to learn that he was on the hook for amenities fees for both himself as property owner and for his renter.
