It’s that time of year, be careful with package delivery too

Report from Lafayette street:

Friday night at 8 pm, OnTrak delivered a package to my home but placed outside of my garage instead of on my porch as I had requested.

 

This package was stolen right here in Charbonneau.  It is that time of year and sad to know that someone could come in on Lafayette which is a dead-end road and steal right out front.

 

The supplier is making good for me and OnTrak is told to deliver on the porch so hopefully mine will not walk away again, but others should be made aware as well.

Be sure to report to police and the country club any thefts or activity, so that they can track and increase patrols

 

Break in on Fairway Dr, Please be cautious

A car was broken into on Fairway drive on Sunday about 8:30.

Small amount of cash, from the glove box car registration and Insurance and most importantly the garage door opener.

Be sure to lock you car and your garage.  Perhaps think about each night taking your garage door opener into the house, especially if you garage is attached to your house.

The Country Club Security has been notified and the Police are aware.

WHEN: Sunday – October 7, 2018

3:00pm – 4:00pm All CHOA residents

WHERE: CHOA Rec Hall “C”8298 SW Lafayette Way

 

 

Free Light Bulbs for any who would like to pick them up at Rec Hall C front foyer

Recently CHOA replaced all of the Common Area outside lighting on your homes (normally front and back) with new low energy LED light bulbs. See POST from August 17th.

We now have a lot of old “working” light bulbs.  We investigated what to do with the bulbs and have not found a solution.

Since these are good bulbs we thought we would offer the bulbs to the residents.  If you would like to take advantage of this offer, the light bulbs will be in a tub at Rec Hall C foyer.  Bring a sack and take what you can use.

The Light bulbs will be in the Rec Hall Foyer starting Monday 9/24

Pools to close due to low temperatures at night

Given the 40 degree nighttime temperature and the amount of work it takes for the heaters to heat the pool all day, we are turning off the heaters on Monday 9/17.

It will take a few days to get around to all the pools to install the pool covers, so you may see your pool open until Tuesday/Wednesday or Thursday.  Feel free to use your pool until you see the “Closed for the Season” sign.

We had an amazing Summer, see you next year

Future Kitchen at the Rec Hall – Let us know what you think

The board has been investigating the costs and possibility of having a Kitchen at the Rec Hall on Lafayette St.  We now have a drawing (draft) and have some estimated costs that match our budget and feel it is a plausible endeavor

Now that we have more information, we wanted to inform our residents to make sure that a kitchen is something that would be of value to all and to capture any additional ideas.

Because our master cabinet maker, who did the drawings, is leaving in October, we need to get a final OK back to him soon, so any feedback needs to be given in the next week or two.

On  September 20th, Thursday afternoon at 2:00pm, we are having an informal meeting at the Rec Hall to discuss the Kitchen.  We will have the drawings there to view.

If you are interested in seeing the drawings or just would like to be part of the discussion, please let us know so that we can plan on your attendance

Per Request: October Board Meeting will change to the evening of 10/9 6:00 pm

At the Annual meeting there was a request to have some of the Board Meetings during the year scheduled in the evening to allow those  who work to attend

To accommodate this request we will have our first evening CHOA Board meeting.

October Board Meeting will be Tuesday, October 9th at 6:00, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

There is an Alligator in my pool (and now ants)

The Ducks have decided that some of our pools are new ponds for them to play in.  Ducks are fun, except when they leave reminders of their visit.

To help keep the pools clean of “debris” we  recently purchased an Articulating Alligator to see if this device would discourage the ducks.  The pool we chose to trial the alligator in was F&G pool.  Unfortunately, the Alligator was viewed as a toy and ended up in pieces in the surrounding yard.

Karen Siegel was able to reassemble the Alligator so that we can continue to use it.

Please if you see the Alligator in your pool, it is not a toy.

I know that for some the Alligator can be a temptation.  If you need to, you can remove the Alligator device while you are in the pool.  Ducks don’t usually land when people are present.  Just remember to put the Alligator back in before you leave.

 

Thanks for your help.

While we’re on the subject of keeping our pools clean………

Remember, there is no eating in the pool area.

We do have a service that helps keep our pools clean and usable.  That said, food debris attracts ants and other wildlife.  In addition to the regular pool cleaning service paid for out of your HOA dues, treatment for ants is an extra cost that should not be needed if food is only consumed in areas outside of the pool.
