I have fines I never paid from 2018 or earlier & I want to contest them - what do I do?

To contest any fines received from the HOA, you MUST file your grievance within 60 days of receiving the fine either by email, snail mail or in person at our monthly HOA meeting. We CANNOT accurately review fines given out by former OPN HOA boards. After receiving your grievance, we will review our records and render our decision. Please be aware that any unpaid fines result in a lien against your property until it is settled in full.


I've got a question or topic I wish to discuss with the board.  How can I speak with them?

The HOA Board meetings are on the 3rd Wednesday of each month  at 5:30pm, typically at the Montgomery Police Department's Community Room.  Please come and share any thoughts or questions - we're a totally VOLUNTEER BOARD and we're doing our best to live our lives AND serve the community in which we live, so please be patient with us

Why am I being fined for garbage cans? What "can" I do about it?

If you received a fine for garbage/recycling can violations, it's because you had your cans sitting either in front, back or on the side of your house on at least 2 separate occasions which were spaced at least 3 weeks apart. To comply with OPN HOA regulations, you must keep them inside, OR get a tiny "receptacle" shed that fits up against your house OR build a fenced in "pen" for them. We WILL be cracking down on this, so please find a solution that works for you & the HOA.
