"Our Home" Page 1 in a series of 5
When I first moved into Lake Ashton, I thought it was the greatest community in Florida. Little did I know about all the corruption that was going on in this community. I should have known when we was planning to build our home. We had been over charged $5,000 on the building cost. Apparently they could not add up the square footage of the home. After we found out that the taxes on a RV home was out of sight they kept our down payment of $7,000 after we back out. Anyhow we settled on a used home. In the mean time Joe Hunter was firing the employees of Lake Ashton right and left. Then we were told that NO pick-up trucks were allowed in your driveway and must be parked in the garage. The garage length was much too small for the ext. cab pick-up that I had. Even the driveway was too short. The developer was always thinking of ways to save money and not for the interest of the home owner. Now I had a fight on my hands because I had a pick-up and so did many others. I notify the Ledger and they wrote an article about pick-ups in Lake Ashton. The CDD back-off and we the pick-ups owners could park our pick-ups here again. No rest at all but trouble, and more trouble ahead.
