DUES BILLS HAVE BEEN MAILED. . . Dues bills for 2006 dues have been mailed. Dues are due and payable on October 1st 2005. Bills were mailed to your office address unless you requested to have them sent to your home. Also, you will be receiving an invoice from Supra (GE Interlogix) in late August. If you are going to turn in your key or discontinue your membership, you should do so before October 1st in order to prevent receiving invoices. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call the Association office at 301-306-7900.

SUPRA LOCKBOXES. . . Please make sure that you do not put a PGCAR lockbox on a property located outside of Prince George's or Montgomery Counties. When listing a property outside of Prince George's or Montgomery Counties, you have two options with regard to Supra Lockbox use. One, you can bring your Prince George's County Lockbox to the Association office and have it deprogrammed and then have it reprogrammed for the area where the house is located. Two, if you feel you will be selling other houses in that area, you can purchase a lockbox from the Association in the area where the house is located. By putting a PGCAR Lockbox on a house located outside of Prince George's or Montgomery Counties, you are limiting access for your Seller. Thank you for your cooperation.
