It has come to our attention that some Southbury residents have received telephone calls that claim to be soliciting funds for the Southbury Volunteer Firemen's Association. The members of the SVFA are NOT making these calls, nor have we authorized anyone else to solicit in our name.

Whoever is soliciting these funds - they are NOT going to be used to help support the SVFA.

Proposed Budget 2018-2019
Posted on Jul 28, 2018
BUDGET 2018-2019 has been proposed
MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER - Kevin Hellriegel
(excerpt-you can read the entire article on the cover of the August Bulletin)
Ok, so if you have not heard, the Budget for fiscal year 2018-2019 is presently a reduction in the Maintenance Fees. Depending on your unit type the decrease is presently proposed to be reduced from $21-$31 per month. Overall it equates to a 4.4% reduction for HVMA and HVF. The final result came due to many long hours of review by both residents and staff. I personally want to thank everyone that contributed to the success of this budget.
