    There are Subs in my area that I would like to try and maintain the entrances, and I would like to contact the Home Owners Association but I don't know how to go about doing that? Is there someone you can talk to at the town hall? Thanks in advance.

    If they are newer subdivisions then contact the developer. They usually have that info.

    Go into the subdivision and knock on the doors and ask for the HOA contact info. They all should have it.

    I look in the phone book. Most HOA'S are in there. Call and request to submit a bid. There are a few HOA'S here that post the current contract/ contact info in the clubhouse or exterior board. If it is posted normally has size of property, number of cuts, when contract expires, and what they are currently paying.

    Where do you look in the phone book? I just looked in my yellow pages and there is not such a section for HOA.

    Most if not all HOA's hire property management companies to handle all of the dues collections and contracting for services. I would search on Google for property management companies in your area. Contact them and tell them you are interested in getting on their bid list for a some of the HOA's they manage.

    Also try look under associations and in the white page section. Not all are listed but quite a few are in my area.

    Many have websites. Google the name of the subdivision.
