Safety & Security
As many of you were notified by the RSAS - Realtime Security Alert System - a burglary occurred on Talon Court on Sunday August 3. The details are unclear, so we will not theorize on the specific conditions or suspect. There were no other incidents in the area and there were no signs of forced entry. We have high hopes that this was in isolated incident, but we all need to continue to keep our homes and vehicles locked, and keep out a watchful eye for your neighbors' property. Do not hesitate to call the Shelby County Sheriff's Office at 669.4181 (non-emergency) or 911 to report suspicious people or vehicles.
Be careful when choosing contractors and service-providers to work in your home. Vet them and never pay in advance. Many of us become complacent at times, and there are people willing to take advantage of an easy opportunity. Several cases have been reported to us where contractors failed to complete work for which they were pre-paid. Also, some contractors have harrassed homeowners in Eagle Point for non-payment when jobs were not properly completed. Some of these headaches can be prevented by thoroughly evaluating the service-providers beforehand, and checking the provided references.
We also have to be vigilant about seemingly innocent solicitors in Eagle Point, who may have other motives. Recently we received a report about two young men visiting door-to-door to do yard work in Eagle Point. They were driving a vehicle with Florida plates, and a homeowner called the Sheriff. While they did not look like "criminals", they were subsequently transported to the Shelby County jail because of outstanding warrants. It takes little time to do these two things to help keep you and your family physically and fiscally safe.
Note that the Eagle Point Facebook page is an informal page set up by homeowners to share all types of information. The HOA is not involved with this Facebook page. If you would like clarification or more information about a relevant topic posted on Facebook, please contact the HOA office and refer to the Eagle Pointer newsletter.
Mark your calendars for the HOA's upcoming events! On Saturday, September 13, the semi-annual garage sale will take place from 7 am through 2 pm. As always, this is a great opportunity to make a few bucks selling items that are no longer needed, or to land a great deal buying some wanted items!
Next, the annual neighborhood Fall Festival is scheduled take place on Sunday, October 26. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet your fellow neighbors, and to enjoy some great food and prizes donated by local business. For the children, the HOA will be ordering bounce houses to help burn that excess energy.
Finally, the annual cookies with Santa and carriage ride will take place on Sunday, December 7. Hopefully your kids have been good this year so that Santa can furnish them with all they desire! If you are interested in helping with or donating to these last two events, please email email@example.com
