A few reminders and notes:
-DO NOT dump any garbage at the garbage hut. Any garbage is to be on your front lawn only, for pick up. -DOG POOP -I have had several complaints about dog poop.
o People have not cleaned up their yard after allowing their dog to poop in the yard. Your neighbours are complaining of the mess and the smell;
o The path between 215 and 235 -it has been brought to my attention that someone is allowing their dog to poop and they are not picking it up;
o The boulevard along Manse Road -while others walk their dogs, many from Neilson Creek walk their dogs and it has been said that there is very little pick up happening.
o Please be responsible. Thanks.
Driving too fast
At a meeting last week, several members expressed concern about how fast people drive in the Co-op. Many of those who drive fast are members. If you are driving any faster than a snails pace, you must slow down. I have signs coming that will be posted on some lawns to help remind people to slow down. Everyone needs to watch out for children who don’t always see the danger.
Annual Spring Clean Up will be Saturday, May 11. Keep that morning free to participate in clean up.
215 Manse Rd Units 44 -56 and 235 Manse Road Units 67 -7
All of your back yard fences will be replaced starting soon. This includes the sides as well.
Please CLEAN your back yards. Make sure they are cleaned so that the workers can rip down the fences and start to rebuild.
If you have a deck it is your responsibility to make sure, it is not attached to the fence.
Similarly, no shed should be within 2 feet of the fence, in accordance with Co-op rules.
Please CLEAN up dog poop.
Toys, patio furniture, etc should be placed so they are not in the way of the workers.
Please remember NO MEMBER IS ALLOWED TO USE A VISITOR PARKING PASS IN ANY VEHICLE THEY DRIVE.
** Are you interested in pre-authorized housing charge payments? Many have expressed an interest. It would mean that you would not have to buy cheques and submit them to the office. The withdrawal would be automatically taken on the 1st day of each month. Please let me know :
Remember that paint vouchers are only available till the end of May and must be picked up by the end of May.
• Please check your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detector. They should be changed every 10 years. Let us know and they will be replaced.
Participation -it would appear that maybe one half of the households participate in the Co-op. Some of the houses that participate are ‘hard core’ -in that they are active in a number of ways to help enhance the lives of everyone in the Co-op. Whether you are ‘hands on’ or active on the various committees, you are the people of the Co-op that makes it run -and make it run better.
What about those who do not participate? How do you (those who do not participate) help enhance the lives of others in the Co-op? Everyone signed up for the same thing in the Co-op. While many are meeting their obligation, many are not.
How can we help you fulfil your participation requirement?
Right now, we need help in the following areas:
-Paint the office hall;
-Paint the office kitchen;
-Clean the kitchen and meeting room; -Sand and paint the hydro boxes (that Kenny & his son installed);
-Help spray and hose down the A/C units in the backyards;
-Common areas clean up of garbage;
-Power wash the garbage huts interlocking;
… and more. Let us know how you can participate. Thank you.
PLEASE COMPLETE THE RISK MANAGEMENT CHECKLIST AND RETURN TO THE OFFICE NEXT WEEK.Risk-Management-Checklist-2019
