Good News! The Okaloosa County Board of County Commissioners voted unanimously Feb. 6 to approve the funding to dredge East Pass and put the dredged sand on the west Destin beaches.  The funding will come from the 1 cent beach bed tax which is part of the County Tourist Development Tax that our renters pay.  There will be approximately 130,000 cubic yards added beginning at the east jetty just west of Destin Pointe and continuing eastward all the way to Destin on the Gulf.  The sand will be dredged by the dredge contractor that is coming to extend Norriego point creating a large Norriego Point Park.

HIIA Beach erosionThis sand for the park will be taken from north of the Marler bridge and just south of the Marler bridge at the entrance to Destin Harbor and around Norriego Point. Once that sand has been used on Norriego Point, the dredge will continue to dredge southward in East Pass all the way out through the jetties and out toward the buoys that mark the channel outside of the jetties.  This sand will be pumped onto the edges of the Holiday Isle beaches up to a height of 3 feet at the edge of the water extending the beaches southward and seaward. Should start around April and will be completed within 2-3 weeks. Perfect for Summer!

This success represents the end of a year long activity involving Destin Pointe, Holiday Isle Improvement Association and the condos along Holiday Isle reaching from Jetty East, eastward to Destin on the Gulf.  There has been excellent cooperation among these associations in interacting with the TDC, the City of Destin, and the Board of County Commissioners.   We also appreciate our BCC representative Commissioner Kelly Windes and our City of Destin Mayor, Scott Fischer for their support and dedication. These gentlemen made it happen!

Late HOA payments may soon affect credit scores

NEW YORK – May 10, 2016 – A major credit reporting agency says it will soon take into account homeowner association fees. Homeowners who are late on payments may see it affect their credit score.

Sperlonga, a credit data aggregator, is the first company to provide homeowner association (HOA) payment and account status data to Equifax, which is one of the three major credit-reporting agencies. A full rollout of the new HOA reporting to Equifax will go live in October.

Homeowner associations and property management companies collect about $70 billion in HOA payments yearly among at least 333,000 community associations, according to the Community Association Institute.

“Until now, HOA payments have gone largely unreported to the national credit-reporting agencies,” says Matt Martin, chairman and founder of Sperlonga. “Our service will help elevate association payments to the same level of importance as the consumer’s other financial obligations like residential mortgages, auto loans and credit card payments. Property owners that pay HOA fees on time should begin to see the similar impact [on] their credit reports as they would with other payment obligations traditionally found in a credit report.”

Property owners who are late or delinquent on HOA payments will likely see a negative effect on their credit score, just as if they had missed a mortgage payment.

“Introducing new sources of data beyond what has traditionally been found on credit files can provide additional insight into a consumer’s financial behavior and help deliver expanded credit access,” says Mike Gardner, senior vice president at Equifax.
