Frequently Asked Questions
What do I do if I see a street light that is out?
Street lights are maintained by the electric company Puget Sound Energy. There are two ways to address a burned out street light.
The first is to go to the PSE web site at https://pse.com/accountsandservices/ServiceAlert/Pages/Street-Light-Problem.aspx
The second way is to contact the HOA Manager who will handle the issue.
There is a tree that appears to be unsafe, what should I do?
Do not attempt to cut the tree down yourself. If the tree is in your yard then take pictures of the tree and ask permission from the ACC to cut the tree down. Then arrange for an arborist to remove the tree. If the tree is in the wetland adjacent to your yard, then hire an arborist to prepare a written report for you identifying the safety hazard. Take the report down to the city permitting office. Provide the report and obtain a permit to cut the tree down. The tree must be a safety issue to obtain this approval. Then have an arborist cut down the tree. This will be at your expense; the city does not pay for this expense. Trees that are EHOA property that are unsafe will be removed as required at EHOA expense.
Where should I pay my dues?
Q. Where should I pay my dues?
A. The best way to pay your dues is to mail the check or have your bank auto-pay to the association’s mail box at
Eaglemont Community Homeowners Association
1420 Eaglemont Place
Mount Vernon, Wa, 98274
Finally you can always call the HOA Manager who will work out a way to receive the payment.
I always paid my dues on a monthly basis, now I have been told I have to pay all at once.
The CC&Rs state in article 6.4 that the dues will be paid in quarterly installments on the first day of each quarter. The Association has decided that the invoices will be sent out on or before the first day but only payable on the 15th day following. All dues therefore must be paid on or about the 15th of January/April/July/October. In the past some individuals paid monthly but this is in contravention of the CC&Rs. As of 2010 the regulations will be applied as written in order to be fair to the vast majority of the homeowners who do pay on time each quarter.
Behind my home there is patch of land that no one takes care of. It is full of weeds and they are encroaching on my backyard. What should I do?
The first thing to do is to determine what the area behind your home is. Please call the HOA Manager who will verify the nature and ownership of the area. If the area is a natural or water conservation area, then it must be kept in its natural state. If the area is property of Eaglemont Golf and not a natural area, they should be contacted to maintain it. If something happens to be EHOA property, the EHOA will take care of it.
There is a car that is parked on the street even though it is clearly marked No Parking.
Please first mention this to the homeowner that the vehicle belongs to, or to whom it is visiting. Most of the time neighbors will be understanding and work together. To get more immediate formal action, you may call:
Mount Vernon Police Department
(360) 336 6271
Can I get a special rate to rent the Golf Clubhouse for an event?
The Golf Clubhouse is owned and operated by Eaglemont Golf, a private company that is not related to the Eaglemont Community Homeowners Association. They arrange for all rentals and set the rates. Get in touch with them at the Clubhouse. The Clubhouse is a beautiful location with ample parking that is a nice venue for private events.
I just saw a suspicious person/car around the neighborhood, who do I tell?
The police will send out a vehicle to investigate and take action if necessary.
What is the proper way to pay my bill?
In accordance with the CC&Rs, article 6.4 the assessments are to be paid in quarterly installments on the first day of each quarter. This does not preclude owners from paying their assessment for the entire year, but it does preclude owners from paying monthly. Late charges will be charged to owners who do not pay their assessments on time.
