DO NOT CALL
Tired of telemarketers calling your home trying to sell you things? Wish you
could get them to stop?
WELL YOU CAN!, Well Most of them anyway.
The U.S. Government has set up a new national "Do Not Call" list. This is a list
in which telemarketing companies
MUST research before making sales calls. If a number in their list is on the "Do
Not Call" list they MUST NOT CALL IT.
If they do call, and the "Do Not Call" committee gets a complaint about the
violation, The offending company can be
fined up to $11,000.
This does not eliminate ALL calls. The "Do Not Call" list does not apply to
charities, political organizations, or companies
you have already done business with.
You can register your number for the "Do Not Call" list for FREE at this web
The site and registration is up and running now, But the list does not take
effect until October.

Water line damage
Well with the cold water burst water lines are bound to happen.
1305 A reported a leak in their front yard. Village was called and we were told
it was the line running the the A unit
and not the village line.
NOTE: Any service that goes to a unit exclusively, IE,
water, gas, electric, AC ect is the responsibility of the home owner.
The homeowner was notified that it was their line and they needed to get
a plumber to repair the problem. They in turn
called a licensed plumber and that company came out to do the work.
When the digging was done and water shut off from the village it had been told
to us by the village that there may be two leaks.
One leak looks to have been caused by the plumbing companies digging and
damaging the line from the villages water main
to the shut off valves . If the damage on this leak was caused by the plumbing
company, they will be responsible for it. If it
was a leak from the cold, this will be covered by the association.
The possible second leak looks to be the line serving the A unit. This line from
the shut off to the unit is the unit owners
Final cost that the association had to pay for this repair was $3,850.00. That
means $27.74 of each units January payment
went to bay for this project alone.
See where the money goes? Doesn't take mush for the money to get used up fast.

Bright nights are here
Well as of last night, January 7th 2003, the first two streetlights the village
has installed in our neighborhood
are now powered up and working!
If you get a chance go take a look. These lights make a HUGE difference in the
area. Not only for safety
on the dark street, but also help strengthen the security for people walking and
for cars parked on the street.
In 2003 we will be trying to get a couple more to fill out the rest of the
street as well as a couple of stop
signs put in place.
