SHOA continues to grow, work with county to alleviate flooding

<I>KEVIN HEIMBIGNER photo</I><BR>In Surfside, county crews worked with the homeowners' association to keep the outlets open, but rains came faster than the excess water could run to the ocean.

SURFSIDE - The population of Surfside Homeowners' Association (SHOA) continues to grow according to the board meeting of Jan. 21. Sixteen new single-family residences were reported between Nov. 29, 2005, and Jan. 17, the typically "slow" season, according to Secretary Ken Karch.

New water hookups more than doubled at SHOA from 2004 to 2005. Treasurer Walter Platt reported that the association may have a significant surplus of funds due in part to growth and insurance savings of over $12,000. There were 59 changes in ownership of property reported over the same timeframe.
