GARAGE SALE DATES The remaining garage sale dates for 2018 are June 1 st and October 6 th . These dates will be advertised on local media and signs are placed at the entrances early in the week of the sale. Garage sales are not permitted on any other dates. Fines may be assessed for failure to abide by this rule. For information and an application for an estate sale, please contact Preferred Management. HARVEY RECOVERY We are now six months following Hurricane Harvey and subsequent floods, remember that you must request an extension to continue living in a motorhome or RV in your driveway. Also, please get an extension for storage containers. As we get back into our homes, please remember that deed restrictions are still applicable. While the Board of Directors has instructed Preferred Management to refrain from deed restriction letters to the flooded homes, we must remember it is to our benefit to return to normal as soon as possible. Letters will begin to go out as reminders that deed restrictions are still in force. Please bring your home back to meet all deed restrictions. SUMMER ACTIVITIES Would you like to see additional activities in our neighborhood? We would love to have things for our families, but without assistance it is not possible. The Board of Directors’ members all have full time jobs or other family obligations that take up much of our time. We are an unpaid voluntary Board with the interest of Concord Bridge at heart. If you have ideas for neighborhood activities, get volunteers to help and present your ideas to the Board. We will back legitimate activities to unite our neighbors. There were several people at the annual meeting that advised they would assist in activities and/or serving in various capacities. We encourage you to step forward with your ideas and volunteers to assist. Hopefully, we will have movie nights in the park again this year. Watch for information in the Crier, on the marquees and emails from Preferred Management.

DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME starts MARCH 11, 2018 spring forward !!! PROPER DISPOSAL HELPS EVERYONE! Do you know what to do with leftover used cooking oil and grease? Never wash cooking fats, oil or grease (FOG) down the drain, as they can cause the sewer line to back up into your home. If the drain clogs and causes a sewer line blockage it may cause the back up to flow onto the street and into the storm drains which flow to our bayous and eventually Galveston Bay. This material is harmful to the waterways and the creatures that live there. Recycle it Instead! The Harris County Household Hazardous Waste Facility provides a free residential FOG drop-off site for easy disposal. FOG items can be recycled into bio-diesel fuels, a feed additive for animals and other processes that save natural resources. Please do NOT mix FOG with any other items, such as automotive waste (no auto oils or lubricants) because if these are mixed they cannot be recycled. Also, please bring your FOG in a container that we can keep. This service is for residents of Harris County only. No restaurants will be serviced. VACATION WATCH Remember that our constables offer this valuable service. School is out and the kids are bored. They often are unsupervised and seek thrills in dangerous and malicious ways. If your home will be unoccupied while your family is enjoying a vacation, you can complete a vacation watch form and submit it to one of the officers patrolling in the neighborhood. There are other services available to local citizens. You can visit the appropriate website for additional information and to sign up for the available services.
