January 26, 2021
Dear Chestnut Residents,
The Board of Directors has been evaluating the possibility of hiring a management company to
facilitate administrative functions and planning. This option was discussed at the annual Chestnut
Homeowner’s Association annual meeting held on July 27, 2020 and published in this year’s
annual meeting minutes. This topic was also discussed and noted in the 2019 annual meeting
Among the duties that would be done by the company are mailing letters, billing, receiving payments
to include on-line payment options, answering homeowner questions, working with vendors,
and assisting with enforcement of CHOA bylaws. Using an outside company to assist in
managing the association was recommended by our legal counsel, based on the size and complexity
of our community.
The board of directors has conducted interviews with prospective property management companies
and decided to engage the services of Kenrick Corporation. We expect to implement this
change effective April 1, 2021.
As always, we want our homeowners to be notified and aware of any major changes to the
management of CHOA.
Board of Directors, Chestnut Homeowners Association

- 7/12/2020 MESSAGE FROM THE CHOA BOARD:
- The down-pouring of rain Saturday caused a significant turnover in the pond. As such, a number of dead fish were brought to the surface. The NYS DEC was called and responded promptly.The DEC officer believes the fish were dead for several days/weeks due to the extreme heat and dry weather we have been having, reducing oxygen in the pond. The officer believes any odor will be gone within 10-14 days and that nature will take care of any remnants fairly quickly.The DEC officer also stated that, overall the pond was healthy and that he saw no evidence of abnormal run-off into the ponds from our lawns, roads and common area.As stated in the Annual Newsletter (just mailed) we were already planning on installing new equipment in the pond to reduce surface debris and improve water circulation.We will be working with the DEC to determine appropriate restocking plans as well as acquire grass carp to assist with weed control. Thank you for your understanding. The CHOA Board
