There will be signs posted at the park/pool shortly to give all interested parties notification that the area is being monitored via surveillance cameras. Please also remember the rules regarding personal sign postings. Because your HOA is now responsible for the upkeep of sign and light poles, placing of private signs of any type onto county owned sign poles or Centerpoint owned light poles is expressly prohibited. Please do not subject yourself to the embarrassment of having your signs removed by the HOA or receiving a ticket from the sheriff who now patrols the district. The HOA can now levy civil fines related to the costs of clean-up. Lastly, a quick reminder that Steve Breard has volunteered to continue collecting aluminum cans for the neighborhood with all proceeds going to the capital improvement fund for our pool. In 2012 we collected $306 and $177 in 2013. However, we only collected $114 in 2014 and $65 in 2015, a pretty significant decrease. For 2016 we collected $42. Please rinse and bag the cans to minimize the attraction to bugs. They can be dropped at 6642 Cove Lake Drive. Board continues to note a number of properties having to be referred for legal action because the owners/renters are not performing regular maintenance. Please remember that not only are you contractually obligated to maintain the property in which you live, it is also an obligation to your neighbors. So take the time to mow and edge your yard. Trim back the trees and bushes (which can also hide would-be burglars). Keep your fence in repair and the house painted as needed. If your sidewalk or drive-way needs repair, get it done before someone gets hurt and sends you a lawsuit for your inattention. Residents should be aware that the HOA fronts the legal expenses for deed restriction enforcement. But the Board does come back to the property owner for reimbursement of those costs including an assortment of administrative fees. It can get really expensive really fast. Please also be aware that trailers, boats, RVs must either be stored out of sight on your property. The actual by-laws require them to be stored outside of Settlers Village but inside a closed garage or in the backyard as long as they are below the fence line and out of sight is also accepted. Covering an item with a tarp is not acceptable. YARD OF THE MONTH Settlers Village wants to promote great yards. From May through October, the Board will make a once a month selection of the neighborhood’s best looking yard. Each month’s top winner will be awarded a $100 gift card. Board members and their families will not be eligible. RESIDENTS OF HARRIS COUNTY MUD 105 Best Trash picks up your trash on Tuesday and Friday. Your recycle collection day will be Friday.
