Most of us with school aged children are familiar with coupon books. The 2013 coupon campaign netted more than $165,000 for Shelby County Schools this year. Congratulations to all the student winners! The complete article can be read at http://www.shelbycountyreporter.com/2013/04/26/coupon-campaign-nets-165000-for-shelby-county-school/.
With summer quickly approaching many of us will be getting ready to travel on family vacations. Yahoo! Homes recently posted an article on how to protect your home from burglars. The informative article is at http://homes.yahoo.com/news/protect-home-from-burglars-005405786.html.
Here are the tips mentioned to protect your home from burglars:
1. Secure your doors and windows
2. Loud dog
3. A home security system
4. Motion sensor lights
5. Surveillance cameras
6. Protection warning signs
7. Trimmed and tidy yard
8. The appearance that someone is home
9. Helpful neighbors
The dumpsters at Your Office are for Your Office tenants only. Someone is filling it up with household garbage as soon as it is emptied. Your Office has not been able to find an address but it seems to be someone who is moving in or out (or cleaning out their basement) based on the type of garbage being trashed. They seem to know the pickup schedule since they fill it up as soon as it is emptied. Please do NOT use the business dumpsters for your garbage. Waste Management has the Bagster bag which holds up to 3,500 lbs of debris. The bags can be purchased at any local home improvement store and with one call Waste Management will come and haul it away for a $99.00 fee for the first bag. Go to www.thebagster.com for more information.
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), including on Thursday 5/2. 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 email@example.com. We will collect data and report to the company and the state authorities, and we will require corrective action by SWWC.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
As most of you have noticed, several signs and utility boxes in Eagle Point were vandalized with graffiti in March 2013. Similar graffiti was drawn on both public and private property, including the Eagle Point Swim & Tennis Club sign, utility boxes on Eagle Crest Road, the Eagle Point Covenant Awareness sign at the Highway 119 entrance, and public road signs near the Highway 119 entrance. We encourage anyone with knowledge of this criminal behavior to contact the Shelby County Sheriff's Office at 205.669.4181. The HOA is working to repair the costly damage, which requires using funds which were budgeted for other items in Eagle Point. Please let us know as well if you have any helpful information about the graffiti, by emailing us at email@example.com.
