Eagle Pointer 8/11 - 8/17/2013
On Monday August 12, the Shelby County Commission appointed a representative each from the Greystone and Eagle Point communities to serve on the newly created three-member board to review rate increases for the sewer system in the county's north end. The commission approved a board member from Greystone Residential Association and Eagle Point Homeowners Association to fill the two vacant seats on the board. Shelby County Water Services Manager Michael Cain is the board's third member. The group is charged with reviewing rate increases for SouthWest Water Company's sewer infrastructure in north Shelby County.

Sewer Lift Stations
Our wastewater treatment (sewer) system, owned and operated by Southwest Water Company (SWWC), contains a series of "Lift Stations" throughout the service area. You probably have noticed several such stations in Eagle Point, which include some electrical equipment, a pump, and a concrete slab. We have experienced repeated failures at the station located at Eagle Point Drive and Farley Lane (adjacent to Eagle Trace). This has resulted in the discharge of raw untreated wastewater into our properties and storm sewer system. If you observe any problems with these Lift Stations in Eagle Point, please contact the SWWC Emergency Line at 408.1990 and advise the EPHOA at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will collect data and report to the company and the state authorities, and we will require corrective action by SWWC.
Safety and Security
The EPHOA routinely receives complaints regarding speeding vehicles in our neighborhood. If you encounter any dangerous driving that should be dealt with immediately, please call the Shelby County Sheriff's department at 669-4181. Otherwise, please record the date and time of incident along with the driver's tag number and submit this information to the EPHOA at email@example.com. The EPHOA will then submit this information to the sheriff. We believe that encouraging all residents to participate in this feature of the neighborhood watch will increase safety in our neighborhood. With school starting soon, the Sheriff’s department has increased their drive through Eagle Point.
Get ready for the semiannual neighborhood garage sale on September 21st from 7:00AM – 2:00PM. Just put a red balloon on your mailbox to let shoppers know you are participating. The EPHOA will put an ad in the Birmingham News to advertise the event.

I found a very sweet, gentle dog in our neighborhood yesterday. I took her to the vet and had her checked out, given shots and a bath. The vet says she's a mixed breed and about 4 years old. I have sent out emails to find the owner. She is 23 pounds and was malnourished. She was afraid of the storm and stuck close to people. She is at Riverview Animal Hospital currently and I really don't want to have to take her to one of the shelters. I fell in love with her quickly. She rode very well in my car. If you know of anyone who might be interested in her, please let me know. ......
