FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Last week, the RCSC Board of Directors approved an increase in the annual property assessments of $6.00 per property effective February 1, 2014 from $450.00 to $456.00 (or $228.00 per year for properties purchased prior to 2003 that are assessed on a per person basis) – an increase of less than 1.5 percent.
Yearly Privilege Cards for non-owner occupants of residences in Sun City will also increase to $228.00 per person per year on this date. Short-term privilege cards (30, 60 and 90 days) remain at $60.00 per month.
Based on the recommendations from Finance & Budget Committee, the annual RCSC budget must address increased costs of utilities, maintenance and employees salaries and insurance. General Manager Jan Ek will do a presentation on the budget at the Annual Member Meeting on Saturday, January 25, 2014. This meeting will be at the Sundial Auditorium from 9:00a.m. to 2:00p.m.
The Board continues to feel that more frequent smaller increases to the assessment amount are more palatable to the majority of Sun City residents versus less frequent larger increases.
The Sun City Foundation is available for qualified members who need assistance with payment of their RCSC assessment.
The Recreation Centers of Sun City continues to operate well within its operating and capital budgets each month and remains fiscally sound and debt-free.
