Thank you for your interest in the beauty of the San Tan Heights community and the well-being of its members. As you may know, the San Tan Heights Homeowners Association (the “Association”) offers a reward to encourage people with information about vandalism in the community to come forward and to ensure that reports of vandalism are as complete and accurate as possible.
For your reference, the Association’s Reward Policy is as follows:
- The Association may, in its sole discretion, provide a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of individuals or groups responsible for vandalism to Association property.
- You must be a member (or bona fide tenant of a member) of the Association to be eligible for a reward.
- You must provide a complete and accurate report to the Association, including providing your correct name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, the date you observed the alleged vandalism, the specific act of alleged vandalism, and name or names of persons involved in alleged vandalism (if known). If several people supply information leading to the arrest and conviction of a person(s) for the same act of vandalism, the reward will be split equally among them.
- You must be at least eighteen (18) years old and you must be willing to stand by your report and sign an affidavit under penalty of perjury attesting that the information furnished to the Association is true based on your personal knowledge.
- You must be eligible to work and receive wages in the United States. Prior to making any payment, the Association will require a Social Security Number for tax purposes. The Association will use the Social Security Number only for tax purposes and will not disclose it except as required by law.
- The information you provide must not have been previously known by or reported to the Association or its management company.
- The information provided by you must be deemed reliable and accurate by the Association, in the Association’s sole judgment. The Association reserves the absolute right to determine whether and how to pursue any and all vandalism reports and you agree that you have no right to contest the Association’s determination.
- If a determination has been made to pursue your report, you will be notified, but the Association is not obligated to provide you with information on the conduct of the investigation or the outcome.
- Throughout the investigation of the alleged vandalism, you must promptly respond to all inquiries and follow-up questions from law enforcement, the Association, the Association’s management company and/or its attorneys.
- Reporting alleged vandalism does not affect the Association’s commitment to keep your identity confidential. The Association will not release your name unless you agree or such disclosure is required by law.
- No reward is payable unless the Association or law enforcement pursues a case and, as a direct result of the information provided by you, an arrest and conviction of the alleged vandal results.
- Prior to issuing a reward, the Association will determine whether eligibility requirements have been met. The Association reserves the right to waive requirements in its sole discretion. If they have been met, then the Association will consider you for payment of a cash reward of up to $1,000.
- Payment of the reward must be consistent with the objectives of this Reward Policy. Please note that the decision to pay a reward and the amount of that award shall be within the Association’s sole discretion. The Association reserves its right to deny the payment of a reward or to revoke this Reward Policy at any time and without notice and for any reason.
- This Reward Policy is inapplicable to the extent it is contrary to law.
