Frequently asked questions
Q: How are the roads in Alpenwald Village maintained?A: Each year the contract for road maintenance is put out to bid by the AVI Homeowner’s Association. The maintenance of the roads throughout the entire year is calculated into this bid (which includes but is not limited to; snow removal, grading as necessary, ditch and drainage clearing as required).
Q: How much does each Board member of the homeowner’s association make?A: Zero. Each Board member has a full time job outside of Alpenwald Village and performs their duties as a member of the Board of AVI strictly on a voluntary basis.
Q: What does my annual homeowner’s association assessment pay for?A: The majority of the fees collected pay for road maintenance. From time to time there are legal fees that are incurred but this is kept to a minimum as much as possible. In 2018, funds were used to re-build the mailbox shed as it had become a danger and was not previously ADA compliant. Financial statements are provided quarterly to members at regularly held board meetings.

As noted in the Declaration of Property Rights and enforced by the Board, buildings must have a minimum dimension, must have indoor plumbing and running water.
