Alarm Permits: Our contracted officers have asked that we remind our residents that it is a requirement by Harris County that you register your alarm system with the County. It is $35 to get a new permit and $10 to renew it each year. The fees are waived if you are over 65, but you must still register your alarm. Residents face a $75 false alarm fee if officers respond to your alarm and it isn’t registered. You can get details about registering your alarm here: Crime Alert: Residents need to know that there has been a marked increase in crime in our community, including recent car burglaries and a home invasion. Harris County MUD 130 pays for the contract officers for our community. They are being extra vigilant and are aware of the increase in activity in recent months. Copperbrook appreciates our officer’s efforts, but we as residents MUST do our part as well. Upon speaking to one of our contract deputies at the December Board meeting, he indicated that the flood lights above the garage that are motion activated, are a great deterrent and a great way to alert officers to movement when they are making their rounds at night. We would like to encourage neighbors to protect each other’s lives and property by watching for and reporting suspicious activities... the residents become the “eyes” of the patrolling deputies. If you see something, SAY something! The object is to prevent a crime from happening by having a deputy check out even the slightest irregularity in your street’s normal routine. Our deputies would prefer to spend 10 minutes checking out a call rather than follow up on a crime that has already been committed. Please don’t hesitate to call 911 when you see anything suspicious. And PLEASE lock your cars and remove all valuables! If you would like to learn more about crime in the area, visit for information. Community Updates: As most of you have noticed, the trees along one side of our community are being torn down (along the drainage ditch). Harris County is proceeding with its plan to extend Huffmeister through that area. Many of us hoped this day wouldn’t come, but now it has. Just know that the HOA is being vigilant and aware of how this will affect Copperbrook and March 2018 | Copperbrook

will keep residents informed of any concerns if they arise. Additionally, MUD 130 has added more fencing, more lighting and 14 new security cameras to the Charles Austin Park. Many thanks to the MUD for making sure this park is as safe as possible for our residents! Violation/Past Due letters: Simply stated, if you get a violation letter or you are past due in your HOA dues, PLEASE call the TXMGMT at 832-910-7525 to discuss a payment plan or get an extension on a needed repair to your property. The management company and Board of Directors are not unreasonable and will make every reasonable effort to work with residents if you will make an effort on your part to either initiate the repairs or pay the fines, whichever the case.
