“Thirty years ago, Mount Vernon Towers was built as an independent senior condominium complex. Whereas other senior communities are owned by companies, every condominium in Mount Vernon Towers is owned by individuals who are all members of the Mount Vernon Towers Homeowners Association.”
“All owners pay association fees that go to the homeowners association. These fees pay the salaries of the almost 80 employees who work in our management office, dining room, kitchen and maintenance and activities departments as well as the twenty six bed Personal Care Center. In addition, the dues are used for upkeep and maintenance of our public areas and buildings, and any necessary improvements, renovations and replacements of the furnishings.”
All owners have a say in how Mount Vernon Towers is run, and how their money is spent.
Not all residents at Mount Vernon Towers are owners, though all need to be at least 55 years or older in order to live here. “Some families have selected to rent out the condominium that they inherited from their loved one. Other owners purchased a condominium as an investment, and with all that is happening in the booming Sandy Springs area, that has proven to be a smart move!” notes Mrs. Davies.
“We work closely with Chris Peterson, our Executive Director, to make sure that Mount Vernon Towers, a not-for-profit organization, continues to be run in a proactive, prudent manner,” she continues. “We are very proud to say that during Mount Vernon Towers’ entire existence; we’ve never had to levy an assessment on the owners. And when you consider that we’ve had to replace the roof and three large elevators, you understand that this was a major accomplishment.”
