Billing

Monthly billing resumed on July 2nd for all active members. Billing is performed on the 2nd of each month. If you have specific billing questions please call the Club and speak to the front desk.

July 2nd billing details - IMPORTANT INFORMATION BELOW

The July 2nd billing cycle reflected two important transactions:

 

  1. If you have not been using the pools since they opened on June 12th or any other part of the Club orhave been “paying as you go” for services in June, you will receive a ½ month credit for March in the July billing.

  2. The second transaction will be a credit for the number of days we were not able to open in July. This will only be for those members not currently using the Club or paying as they go. Although our anticipated opening is July 6th, we feel it’s prudent to use a 13-day period and build in a buffer as we await State guidance. If we do indeed open on the 6th, the 6-day difference will be applied to August’s billing.

 

Please note the following:

 

  • The “pay as you go” option will expire on the day we reopen the main parts of the Club.

  • If you have been using the pools and did not inform us that you wish to “pay as you go”, we are automatically applying the ½ month credit for that pool usage in June.

  • If you have not been using the Club, your July dues will amount to just 12% of your regular dues as a result of the ½ month and 12-day credit.

 

 

There are two other important items to be aware of regarding billing. 

 

  1. If you have been using the pools for recreational or lap swimming, we will be charging full dues for July. 

  2. We are allowing members to postpone reactivation of their membership for up to 3 months by completing the required paperwork, although with the July billing just 2 days away, we expect most have already done this. Members must notify us by July 1st in order to opt out of using the Club for the 3-month period.

 

The decisions we are making in regard to billing are based on the State’s reopening guidance we have at the time of writing this letter. Any changes in this information will be communicated as quickly as possible. We realize this email has a great deal of information and appreciate your taking the time to read it carefully.
