Reminder About Heavy Trash

Some of you have your Heavy Trash curbside. You could be ticketed, if the City came through the neighborhood looking for violations.

Our last pickup was for Tree Waste only.

Your next scheduled pickup for Heavy Trash is April. 28, 2016.

This means your neighbors will have to look at your items curbside for quite a long time. Please. if you are able, bring it back up to your home and keep it out of sight until next month’s pick up.

In case you are confused as to our pick up days please go to: our garbage calendar page where you will find the City Schedule listed.

Playground Closing Announcement

The board decided at last evenings board meeting, to temporarily close the playground at the pool until further notice. This is due to the need for formal code inspections of the playground equipment.

Children are our first concern, and the board wants to verify that they are safe.
