News from HSTA

OFF LEASH & UNCONTROLLED PETS
Wednesday, October 11, 2017

HSTA is frustrated with residents who elect not to control and/or leash their pets. We post reminders, include information in every Newsletter and even hosted a Responsible Pet Seminar (3 residents attended). HSTA is doing everything we can…a fine structure is not included in the HOA CC&R’s - We need your help! The HOA can and will follow the CC&R violation process for all incidents reported and documented by Animal Control. If you or a family member are the victims of a pet attack or bite, please report it to Animal Control at 208-343-3166. Their officers are deputized to enforce animal related laws to include, dogs at large, barking dogs, aggressive animals, as well as animal attacks and bites.

In 2014, the Idaho Legislature adopted Senate Bill 1310 which placed limits on fines issued by property owners’ associations. The law, which became Idaho Code Section 55-115, placed fining requirements on associations. Under the new regulation many associations, including Hidden Springs, lost the ability to impose fines for violations of an association’s CC&Rs unless the authority to impose the fine was clearly set forth in the CC&Rs. Therefore, as of July 2014, the HSTA board could not adopt fines through a resolution or some other act short of a full scale amendment to the recorded CC&Rs. Losing this ability has made it difficult to enforce CC&Rs in the neighborhood. In pursuit of a solution, HSTA consulted with a property attorney for legal guidance on enforcing our CC&Rs. The process can be found on the community website.
