It’s expensive to live in Howard County – Steven Sattler, CA Communications Director
Posted by Ed C on Thursday, August 30, 2007
From the Baltimore Sun: CA officials paid well.
The Columbia Association paid about $1.2 million in salaries to the top 8 association officials. The CA has an annual budget of $50 million.
The association manages open space, swimming pools and athletic facilities in Columbia, with much of its annual budget coming from taxlike liens paid by every property owner in the planned town.
I enjoy living in Columbia and use the facilities offered by CA regularly. That said, maybe some of the “expense” of living here should be attributed to that “taxlike” lien.
