MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Hello Friends,

For those of you who were not at the last Board meeting, I want to bring you up to date on the flags that are allowed to be displayed by homeowners in the community. The Board has not been enforcing the rule stating which flags are allowed to be flown, and it has come to our attention that we need to revisit this issue. Originally, you were allowed to only display the United States flag and the Nevada State flag. The Board voted 6 to 1 to enforce that original rule and that residents have 90 days to comply.

In addition, the Board listened to a presentation on the new insurance costs for 2024-2025 In essence, our insurances costs are going from approximately $66,000 a year to $133,000 for the next year We were informed that many HOAs cannot get coverage and have to go into a “'high risk pool” where the premiums are astronomical. We have obtained a savings of approximately $11,000 by working with an insurance company that is brokered by First Service Residential on such items as D&O coverage and other smaller items.

Lastly, we are in the budgeting process for 2024-2025 and the Finance Committee's recommendations will be presented to the Board at the Finance workshop on May 1 at 10 a.m. This presentation is for the Board of Directors; so, we can decide what is the most prudent way forward, when we meet on May 8 to adopt the final budget.

Respectfully submitted,

Sun City Aliante Wins CAI's Outstanding Large Association Award for 2023

CAI OFFERS HOA EDUCATION PROGRAMS

Happy Spring! I am honored to write this article and welcome you to spring and a new beginning for 2024! Let's get started with one of my resolutions and an interest of your Board of Director's, quality homeowner education.

The Community Association Institute (CAI) Nevada Chapter's Media Educational Program offers free homeowner educational videos at: h t t p : / / w w w. c a i - n e v a d a . o rg / h o m e . a s p . Vi d e o s include a five-minute introduction, “CAI Do's and Don'ts of serving on your Board,” “CAI Board Member, We Want You,” “Moderating Meeting Madness,” “Building Community Spirit,” “Asset Maintenance & Reserves, ” “Board Role & Responsibilities, ” and “Meetings & Elections.”

The Community Association Institute's Dedicated Community Association Leader (DCAL) Program in Nevada prepared me for successful community leadership and HOA Board Membership. It is dedicated to the education of homeowners, HOA residents, Board members, and community leaders The DCAL Program provides education, tools, and knowledge to run a successful association, solve daily operations issues, and implement federal, state, and local legislation.

The CAI DCAL Program addresses HOA Essentials, Finances in the Common-Interest Community, Building the Community, Ethics in the Common-Interest Community, Meeting & Elections, Risk Management & Insurance, Rules Creation & Enforcement, and attending a CommonInterest Community & Condominium Hotels Commission Meeting or researching & submitting an article for the Chapter Magazine.

With exception of the HOA Essentials Course lasting eight (8) live hours, the classes are three (3) live hours at the Nevada CAI Chapter Offices Training Room Las Vegas and a Northern Nevada location.The monthly classes, facilitated by dedicated subject matter experts, provide a great opportunity to network with CAI Members and HOA experts!

The State of Nevada, Real Estate Division, Office of the Ombudsman provides a neutral and fair venue that assists homeowners in handling matters that may arise while living in a common-interest community (CIC). It is a helpful source for Common-Interest Community Nevada R e v i s e d S t a t u t e a n d C o m m o n - I n t e r e s t C o m m u n i t y N e v a d a Administrative Code.

GENERAL MANAGER

THE BUDGET PROCESS, BOARD ELECTION AND COMMITTEE OPENINGS

Dear Residents:

I encourage you to vote in the upcoming 2024 Board of Directors Election if you have not done so already. We mailed the 2024 Board of Directors Election Ballots to homeowners at the end of March. The deadline for submitting your ballot is Wednesday, May 8 at 8 a.m. Please follow the instructions precisely when you return your ballot.

I want to extend a special thank you to Election Chair Larry Rothstein and the Election Committee and the team of volunteers for their support.

We are now working on the Budget for the Fiscal Year 2024-2025. The Budget Process began in February. The Board of Directors is responsible for overseeing the financial status and operations of the Association and its three money funds – Operating, Reserve and Capitalization. The Finance Advisory Committee (FAC) assists the Board and provides recommendations.

The Operating Fund is budgeted each fiscal year to monitor and control operating expenditures. The Budget Process takes many months. Beginning in February, I prepare worksheets which are analyzed by the Finance Committee, and we look at the trends in all line items to determine the best course of action to recommend to the Board of Directors for the financial well-being of the community

During April, we make the necessary tweaks to the document and develop a presentation outlining the proposed budget and a 3-Year Plan, which will be presented to the Board.

During the Board of Directors and Finance Committee's Budget Workshop, members of the Board and Committee discuss the proposed budgets for the next Fiscal Year This year the Budget Workshop is scheduled for May 1, 2024, at 10 a.m. in the Vista Room. The Workshop is open to all homeowners.

The next step in the process is the adoption of the Budget by the Board at the May 8 meeting of the Board of Directors. In late May, a summary of the Operating, Reserve and Capitalization budgets will be mailed to all homeowners.

The last step in the process is the Budget Ratification Meeting when homeowners can consider ratification of the Budget. The Budget shall automatically become effective unless disapproved at the meeting by 67 percent of the homeowners.

The Budget Ratification Meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 12, at 9:45 a.m. in the Vista Room in the Community Center prior to the Board of Directors meeting. This meeting is open to all Sun City Aliante homeowners. If the budget is adopted and ratified, it will be effective July 1, 2024.

Thank you to all our volunteers ~ our Board, our Committees, and their volunteer members ~ who play a significant role in maintaining the amazing quality of life our residents enjoy, the ever-increasing value of our homes, and popularity of our community for seniors seeking an

active lifestyle.

We invite you to become a volunteer member of one of our Committees and get involved in making the decisions, in coordination with Management and the Board of Directors, that directly affect you.

One thought to consider is what are your interests and passions? I suggest putting your time and talents toward a Committee you would really enjoy. We have several openings; I am sure you will find one that grabs your attention and offers you a challenge.

We h a v e o p e n i n g s o n t h e A r c h i t e c t u r a l R e v i e w C o m m i t t e e , Communications Committee, Finance Advisory Committee and Patrol Committee. Here is the brief description of their responsibilities:

• The Architectural Review Committee protects and enriches the quality of our physical environment by reviewing homeowner requests for site or exterior changes to their property to ensure they comply with Community Design Guidelines and the CC&Rs.

• The Communications Committee oversees the website, hosts trainings, and events and assists the Editor of The Breeze magazine.

• The Finance Committee ensures the Association's finances and budgets are secure and are in compliance with state and federal laws.

• The Patrol Committee observes and reports any hazards or incidents as they patrol the streets of our community

If you are interested in joining one of these Committees, you can pick up a “Committee Interest Application” at the Front Desk, in the Customer Service Office or print one off the website (www.suncityaliante.org). At the top of the Home Page, you will find the heading “Documents.” Click on the arrow, s e l e c t “ C o m m o n l y U s e d F o r m s , ” a n d s e l e c t “ C o m m i t t e e I n t e r e s t Application.” Please fill out the form and return it to the Front Desk.

I hope you will consider joining one of these committees. Volunteering your time and talents is one of the most powerful ways to make a difference, to help others, and to enhance the community and our property values.

Best wishes and enjoy our warmer weather

Happy Mother's Day and Memorial Day!

Sincerely,

Hello, Sun City Aliante! I want to thank homeowners who have stopped by the office to confirm their compliance with the enforcement of the flag rule. I don't say this often enough, but I really should – we h a v e g o o d , c o r d i a l , s w e e t , a n d c o m p l i a n t homeowners/residents. Do we have recalcitrant, surly, arrogant people living in the community? Of course! But here, at Sun City Aliante? Very few.

Why did we change the flag rule? Well, a handful of people decided to be controversial by flying flags that have questionable meanings. It wouldn't be fair to send them a violation letter if I didn't also send one to the homeowners who fly flags representing Michigan State University, Vegas Golden Knights, or the Marine Corps. So, to be fair and consistent, the Board made a call to enforce our existing rule which permits flying only the United States or Nevada State flags.

One homeowner suggested I put together a meeting for homeowners to go over rules and regulations, or the code of conduct for our association. I thought about it for a couple of days, but decided against it because this is what I know about this community The people who live here are adults: retired, educated, professional men and women who have experience and common sense. I would hate to have a pow-wow just to discuss how to be a good homeowner Instead, I put together some tips. Several of these tips are from another manager, Kenneth Budd, from his “Pearls of Wisdom.”

Be a Good Homeowner

1. Review the documents before you buy your property

2. Read them again when you move in.

3. Pay BOTH of your assessments (sub association and master association).

4. Get to know your management staff by introducing yourself.

5. Don't think just because you came from an HOA community you know Sun City Aliante and how it operates.

6. Attend the Annual Meeting.

7. Read The Breeze magazine, email eBlasts, and the minutes.

8. Follow the rules.

9. Serve on a Committee or Board.

10. Remember, you are a member of the association. What is good for it ~ is good for you.

Be a Good Neighbor

1. Love thy neighbor

2. Respect thy neighbor.

3. Don't play the stereo too loud.

4. Pick up after your dog.

5. Don't taunt your neighbor's dog.

6. Park in your own space.

7. Don't be a six-car family

8. Clean up after yourself.

9. Take care of your property.

10. Volunteer for Neighborhood Watch and/or Patrol.

11. If there's a problem, talk about it; direct conversation is more effective than banging on a front door or placing a note on a car windshield.

12. Have a little graciousness when you see a neglected yard; you don't know if your neighbor is sick, in the hospital or out of town taking care of a sick adult son/daughter One day that homeowner could be you!

Be a Good Board Member

1. Serve because you care, not because you have a hidden agenda.

2. Use resources to gain information to learn how to run a community association.

3. Study the documents before you enforce them.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR COUNCILMAN WARD 4 RICHARD CHERCHIO Dear Residents,

Before you head out on vacation, I suggest you read the Neighborhood Watch column on page 15 of this issue of The Breeze. You will find the article, “Things To Do Before You Leave on Vacation,” offers some valuable tips on what do to secure your home whether you are going away for a weekend, a month or all summer. Most importantly, don't forget to leave an emergency number with a trusted friend.

Please join us for a Candidate Meet 'n' Greet on Wednesday, May 22 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Vista Room of the Community Center. This is your opportunity to meet candidates who are running for seats for our State Legislature, North Las Vegas City Council, Judicial Courts, and Congressional District 4.

As this event is held prior to Early Voting, this is an excellent opportunity for you present your concerns directly to candidates face-to-face. The Sun City Aliante HOA and the North Las Vegas Alliance of Concerned Citizens understand the importance of getting to know the candidates and where they stand on the issues that confront our city. We do not make endorsements; we provide residents with an opportunity to become informed about the candidates running in this election. We hope you will attend and take advantage of this event to stay informed.

For your convenience, we have scheduled PRIMARY VOTING at Sun City Aliante Community Center in coordination with the Clark County Election Department.

You will have the opportunity to vote for local, state, and federal candidates in the Social Hall at the Sun City Aliante Community Center on the following dates:

Primary Early Voting Monday, May 27, 2024 – 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Primary Election Day Tuesday, June 11, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.

I always welcome your comments and suggestions. If you have any questions, please call or text me at 702-429-1623 or email twilliamson@suncityaliante.us. Have an awesome month of May!

Community Standards continued from page 11

3. Study the documents before you enforce them.

4. Don't go on a power trip.

5. Remember your fiduciary duty to protect, preserve, and enhance the value of the property

6. Focus on policies, plans, and objectives.

7. Let the manager manage; don't manage the manager

As you all know, I a m a s t r o n g a n i m a l w e l f a r e advocate, and can't speak enough about the good work Hearts Alive Village continues to do. For the past 10 years, Hearts Alive Village has served our entire valley with their all-in-one animal rescue that includes a vet clinic, adoption center, fostering, rehoming, rehab services and more. From felines and dogs to horses and goats, they've helped countless animals and their families. Taking care of so many animals requires constant facility maintenance and occasional upgrades such as new enclosures, windows and fresh coats of paint. The Carpenters stepped up to assist both Hearts Alive and the animals they save and house.

Another heartwarming event this spring was the 50th anniversary of Poker Palace Casino! A staple of North Las Vegas for five decades, Poker Palace has been a cornerstone of our community, bringing joy, entertainment and cama raderie to all who pass through their doors. I was thrilled to be on hand to congratulate Mickey and Laura Coleman on their 50th and thank them for choosing North Las Vegas as “home” all those years ago.

I wanted to share a few reminders with everyone before signing off for this month. During this June's Primary Election Ballot two important ballot questions, Questions 1 and 2, will determine if North Las Vegas will continue to maintain two tax overrides that invest in Funds 268 and Funds 287 for public safety, police, fire, streets and parks. If passed, property tax rates will not change for residents. For a c o m p l e t e e x p l a n a t i o n , p l e a s e v i s i t questions1and2.org.

COMMITTEES NEIGHBORHOOD

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH

MONTHLY BULLETIN:

THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU LEAVE ON VACATION ~

Whether you are gone a week, a month or the summer, be prepared

1. If you have a Neighborhood Watch Block Captain or a trusted neighbor, let them know you will be gone and for how long. Let them know if you have a regular yard service or exterminator.

2. That person should have your cell phone number and the phone number of a family member in case of an emergency at your home.

3. If you have a security system, let them know your emergency contact while you are away such as your trusted neighbor, family member or Block Captain.

4. A good suggestion is to purchase a lockbox like the type a realtor uses. Put a key in the lockbox and put it on the gas main pipe or even an outside faucet. If something should happen, you could give the code to your trusted neighbor or a family member

5. Check smoke alarm batteries and replace them if they are over a year old.

6. Stop the morning paper If you have regular packages delivered, stop them or have your trusted neighbor watch for them and pick them up.

7. If your time away from home is going to be lengthy, unplug all unnecessary electronics, such as clocks, chargers etc. Set a timer in the living room or a bedroom with a light or a radio that goes off and on intermittently. It will help the house not to look or sound empty.

8. A good idea might be to load the car the night before; so, when you leave nobody will know you are heading out on a trip. Look around the neighborhood, check your surroundings as you drive away Circle around the block one last time just to be sure nobody has parked in front of your house.

9 One of the last things to do is to be sure to turn off the water to the house. Turn the yellow handle in the garage off. (Off is the handle pointing down). This is so there will not be pressure on the water softener, water heater or even water pipes. Relieve the pressure by turning on a faucet at one of the sinks in the house. Turn the hot water heater to Pilot.

10. Be sure to lock the service porch/laundry room door on your way out.

Residents are always welcome at the NW meetings. Join us on May 23 at 4:30 p.m.

COMMITTEE

BURGLARY PREVENTION

Consider these home burglary prevention ideas to help protect your home. A home burglary can happen anywhere – the city, the suburbs and in rural areas. According to the most current data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, residential properties accounted for almost 63% of all reported burglaries in 2019. Don't let your home become another statistic. Even if you're not home when it happens, a burglary can shatter your feeling of security Fortunately, taking some simple precautions may help reduce the risk of a burglar gaining access to your home.

What

do burglars look for?

It is beneficial to know what items burglars tend to target so you can plan your home security measures accordingly Thieves are typically looking for small items with monetary value that they can grab quickly and resell easily.

• Drawers and closets in the master bedroom are often where thieves look first. Try to secure valuables, jewelry, collectibles, and cash elsewhere.

• Your office or desk may be filled with important papers, statements, and checkbooks — which could lead to identity theft.

• Encrypt vulnerable information that's stored on your home computer and think about keeping important documents in a home safe. Keep your safe well hidden and bolted to the floor, if possible, so it cannot be easily removed.

• Thieves will also target the family room, looking for gaming systems and small electronics. Consider covering your windows with shades that filter light but block an intruder's view of your components.

• At night, turn on your lights, open your curtains and walk around the exterior of your home. You'll see what's visible to a burglar from your yard or sidewalk. Then have someone turn off the lights in your home. You may be surprised how much you can still see from street level. After this exercise, you might choose to move certain items or draw the blinds more frequently

Help minimize the risk of burglary and keep your home more secure with these suggested measures.

• Windows and doors – Lock and secure all entry points.

• Strong door locks - Install deadbolt locks on all exterior doors and doors.

• Door strike plates – Make in more secure using screws to penetrate the wall stud.

• Security signage - Add a security sign to your yard or stickers to your door. It may not fool a burglar, but he may think twice about hitting your home.

We will offer more details on how to keep your home more secure in the June issue of The Breeze.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT “GOING SOLAR”

M onday, M ay 13, 11 a.m.

Join Jorge Saal of ROBCO Electric on May 13 and get the facts you need to make an educated decision about going solar, especially because NV Energy prices are going up. You will learn:

How solar works with the “Grid” - The bidirectional meter measures your energy usage, and excess energy goes back to the “Grid” and gets credited to your account at 75% of the retail price.

Get a smaller bill with Net Metering - With net metering, NV Energy credits your power bill for the excess energy produced. What you send back wipes out what you use at 100% - a 1-for-1 ratio. Any extra production for the month is banked at 75% of the retail price. You'll use that credit to pay for any power you need from the grid, at night or during the summer.

The Federal solar tax credit -The largest, non-income limited tax credit you can get. It's not a deduction. Credits reduce how much you owe in taxes. As of August 2022, the credit is 30% of the cost of your system. You can carry over unused credit to future tax years.

He will also discuss what “going solar” should cost and ways to finance it.

LGBT & SOCIAL GROUP

As May takes us closer to summer, it brings our LGBT group to new activities because we are able to enjoy the outdoors once again. We look forward to pool parties, picnics and outdoor outings. As always, we recognize everyone born in May and wish them a happy birthday We especially recognize the following people of the LGBT community:

Ÿ Florence Nightingale May 12, 1820August 13, 1910-Founder of modern n u r s i n g d u e t o f o r m a l i z i n g n u r s i n g t r a i n i n g d u r i n g t h e C r i m e a n w a r , (strongly presumed to be lesbian).

Ÿ Katherine Hepburn May 12, 1907- June 29, 2003-American actress twelve-time nominee and four-time winner of the a c a d e m y a w a r d f o r b e s t a c t r e s s . (speculated as being bisexual).

Ÿ Harvey Milk May 22, 1930-November 27, 1978 - First openly gay man to be elected to office in California. During his tenure as supervisor, he helped pass a gay rights ordinance for the City of San Francisco that prohibited anti-gay discrimination in housing and employment. He was assassinated November 27, 1978.

As a co-chair of the LGBT committee, I am frequently asked what is the LGBT group all about? I would like to take a paragraph per month to talk about the Sun City Aliante LGBT group and its purposes. This month, we will look at the LGBT group purposes. At a meeting late last year, we discussed at length our purposes.

We discovered a number of thoughts and ideas that grouped into five areas:

1. Social events within the LGBT group members.

2. Social events with the Sun City Aliante Community.

3. Support to individuals within the LGBT group.

4. Support to individuals of the Sun City Aliante Community related to LGBT.

5. Support to programs in the larger community related to LGBT needs.

In the upcoming articles we will explore each of the above purposes and how residents may become involved. If you are interested in finding out more about the LGBT Special Interest group, or its events, contact Steve Besefske by text at 847-409-4069 or Sheryl Hammer at 818-517-0610.
