Sun City Shadow Hills is a $12 million annual budget corporation. Our community has a general management company on site which oversees maintenance, lifestyles, fitness, security, and landscape. However, the majority of our financial accounting takes place offsite, in Texas.
In addition to our management company, PCM/Associa, we also have many vendors that do business in our community, including Troon, that manages our golf and food and beverage operations. Troon is responsible for nearly $2 million dollars of our annual budget. The majority of Troon’s accounting staff also works offsite, in Arizona.
In order to be responsive and to be able to coordinate all our financial activities, the Finance Advisory Committee recommended to the Board that a corporation of our size should have a Controller that oversees the entire financial aspects of our community, and that the Controller would be onsite. I heartily endorsed that proposal, and the Board voted to include the position in our 2017 budget.
We are in an active recruitment process now and intend to have a controller on board in January 2017.
