Bark Dust coming soon!

]

Now that the trees have released most of their leaves, our Garron crews can move on to other maintenance issues.  They have completed spraying for moss around the beds on the back of our yards (golf course side) and will be cleaning up the beds this week.  We plan on placing hemlock bark on the golf course sides of our homes the second week of December, (weather permitting) as shown on the Map below:

 Rexius will have several trucks on site and will probably start at the north end of Boones Bend.

NOTE to those who are on the “NO PRUNE” list and to those who have perennials planted on the golf course side –you should do the necessary pruning to make those beds accessible or we may not be able to blow the bark into those areas.

If you have any questions, you can call Steve Chinn at 503-682-0234. 

 

Gutter Cleaning has started

Per request from our Residents – This year we are starting the Gutter Cleaning before the 1st of the year.

Our contractor was scheduled to start November 1st, but because of the great weather we’ve been having  the leaves were too dry and  just kept blowing away.

After the rain this last week – which made the leaves more wet – Gutter cleaning was started earlier this week in “A” Neighborhood.

So you may see the contractor cleaning your gutters in the near future.  Probably will continue into December.

 

On another note: Please be aware a cougar was spotted running from on French Prairie and then running down Miley Rd early in the morning.

Watch your pets when they are outside, especially early in the morning

 

 

 

Have a great Thanksgiving.  Charbonneau is a great place to live!!

We are all truly blessed

Jan Landis

CHOA President
