Management Office: In order to maintain management responsibilities to our communities, office staff has been minimized with all other staff working remotely until authorized to return to the office. Protocols have been put into place in compliance with government guidelines as we are permitted to re-open.
Community Inspections: Community inspections are being conducted monthly, as per usual schedule. If owners are experiencing difficulties related to the pandemic, a request for more time to cure the violation/concern can be submitted to the Board for review.
Suspension of Board Meetings: Until restrictions are amended to allow group gatherings, in-person board meetings have been suspended. Any necessary board meetings will be held by teleconference. Notice of any teleconference board meetings will be posted on the TownSq app. The meeting notice will include information necessary for owners to participate in the teleconference meeting.
Suspension of Annual Meeting: Under the recommendations received by association attorneys, annual meetings should be suspended until the appropriate authorities deem it safe for people to meet in large groups again. It is not recommended to hold annual meetings via electronic or telephonic means, due to statutory requirements that specifically apply to non-profit corporations and POA's. Election procedures (solicitation of candidates, notice of meeting) will be followed once appropriate authorities have deemed it safe for people to meet in large groups again.
Closure of Common Areas: The playground continues to remain closed at this time.
Suspension of Community Events: All community events have been suspended until further notice.

management fees, and recreational activities. The annual assessments for 2020 were due on January 1, 2020 but are not considered late until after January 31, 2020. There are payment plans available as well. Penalties are imposed on balances not paid by January 31st. Please contact MASC Austin Properties, Inc. at 713-776-1771 with any questions. You can also
