BV real estate market is hot, so it doesn't look like this is effecting housing prices at least yet. There are a few houses for sale a stones throw from the fire and a couple that are pending, don't sellers have to disclose something like this? wtf would buy a house a block or two away from this thing?

That's good news for the owners that values are holding steady! I don't think an owner would have to declare something not on their property, but not certain. As for who would buy so very close right now? P.T. Barnum's most famous quote about a sucker born every minute comes to mind!

My husband and I have been watching the status of this fire from several states away and have decided to delay our search for a home in Bella Vista until there is more clarity on putting out this fire. It might not be a big deal to some who don't worry about this, but we certainly do.

Thank you to those who live in Bella Vista and have been so willing to share about this unfortunate fire.

you are so right: the overall region isn't affected at all. In fact even the west side of BV isn't effected excep we fell sorry or any friends involved.

But I must admit, our enthusiasm about BV has dwindled considerably over the perceived lack of leadership by the POA. What little facts are known seem very fishy to us. In fact their silence is being heard very loudly. I would think ideally that a POA would be proactive and informative about a situation such as this to it's members. But alas, they are silent. One can only assume they have been lawyered up, and are advised to remain quiet. We have read that the first lawsuits against the POA and BV have been filed and I'm sure there will be many more. Our fear right now about moving forward on a possible purchase there is, what if BVPOA is found negligent or possibly worse? Would the property owners be liable for the mismanagement of the POA? Listen, we are from Illinois so we know how the innocent must foot the bill for the corrupt. No sharing of the profits, just sharing of the losses. Maybe we are a bit paranoid about this but we only get one retirement in life and we want to get it right. So, sadly we are beginning to look in other areas for our next home. We aren't ruling BV out of the running but it's not at the top of our list right now. We truly hope the best for everyone there especially the folks that live nearby and are affected the most! We will continue to follow this story as best we can.
Just wanted to say, Please don't blame the POA altogether by any means. There is a little more to this than the POA. There is a lot of blame to go around, but more than anything, the problem seemed to come from nowhere. Yes, someone or some agency should have realized the potential for damage, but it appears everyone had the heads in the sand.

He's not talking about the blame for the dump's contents (which imo is all the poa's fault) or the fire being started, he's talking about the lack of leadership and communication from the poa in response to the problem. It's been somewhere between nil and zero - pathetic.
So, how was the cruise?

I have no argument with you on this except the city, as well did almost nothing until it became a serious problem. Now, it is going to take months at least to correct the damage. I just do not think POA deserves are the blame.

The cruise was fantastic except we are getting a bit to old for all the airport hassle to get to the ships. If we do anymore cruising it will not be out of San Juan: we left the ship at 8:30 Sunday morning and got to ZNA at 9:30 Sunday night. There was a 2 hour time change; our body clock said it was 11:30. By the time we actually got home it was 10:30. It was like the days we would go to Europe, but those days also are long gone

When you all type POA, do you mean "power of attorney"?

Wheels in motion for cleanup to begin?

There will obviously still be a battle to see who has to repay this money, and also note the statement about property values declining, which had been a topic connected to this previously.

Do I read correctly than the money would be available on/around July 1 (fiscal 2020?) Better than nothing happening, yes?
