UPDATE: Study: Pelham school system feasible
This is an update from the article posted in the last newsletter regarding the Pelham feasibility study.
Pelham could form its own city school system separate from the Shelby County School system, but should consider a tax increase to support the proposed city system, according to a city school system feasibility study.
In the study, which was conducted by Ira Harvey of the Vestavia-based Decision Resources firm and posted on Pelham’s website on June 3, Harvey wrote Pelham forming a separate school system “does not present a difficult financial circumstance due to the tax base.”
However, Harvey also noted that “certain cost containment and revenue options should be considered.” Complete article at http://www.shelbycountyreporter.com/2013/06/03/study-pelham-school-system-feasible/.

Neighbor to Neighbor
Summer has finally arrived and children are out of school. Parents, please watch your children. Know where they are and what they are doing. We have had calls already at Your Office about cars being egg’d. Also, children are running up and down streets ringing people’s doorbells and then running. Eagle Point is currently researching security companies for such things as this along with speeding, theft, etc.
Waste Management Garbage Cans – Point of Clarification
In the Eagle Pointer a couple of weeks ago there was a statement about trash cans being 5 feet from the road and not in the road. We apologize for the confusion this has caused some homeowners. Waste Management has asked us to place the garbage cans no more than 5 feet from the curb in any direction so that the truck’s remote arm can easily grab the can. It is fine for you to continue to put the wheels in the gutter or to place the can at the edge of your driveway. We have several neighbors who have been placing their cans in the middle of the street, especially in some of the cul-de-sacs, making it difficult for the Waste Management trucks to get through and pick up our trash.
We are all glad summer is finally here and we are able to enjoy our yards and being outside. Please be aware of your neighbors when you are doing lawn maintenance and try not to run your mowers and blowers before 7:00 am or after 7:00 pm. Please pass this along to your yard service companies as well. The HOA has asked NatureScape to adhere to the 7-7 policy when maintaining the common areas around Eagle Point.
