Dare I open this conversation up? No need to share horror stories I'm just
looking for what it's typical.......If you are ok with sharing....

1) I am curious what different communities put into their reserves each
year (total & average per unit/per month) for reserves?

2) Is this amount = or greater than 10 % of your yearly budget?

3) Was this based on a reserve study?

4) If no reserve study what is based on?

5) How old your main buildings?

6) How is this divided up? Based on sq ft? The number of people?
Combination? Household?

Heads Up, I will be out of the country for a few weeks but thought I would
get this conversation going so I could follow up when I return.
