WISHING YOU ALL A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Your Board of Directors would like to wish each and every one of our

residents a safe and happy holiday and that good fortune will be your

companion throughout the year.

SECURITY PATROLS IN 2020

This year you will see a greatly increased security presence in our

neighborhood. MUD 61 and MUD 62 have contracted with the Harris

County Sheriff’s Office for the provision of two contract deputies to

patrol all of their two service areas of which the Settlement is a major

part. As indicated in the minutes of the November 6 th WSMA Board

meeting below, at that meeting there was strong resident support for

the continuation of the existing security patrol by off-duty deputies in

addition to the MUD funded contract deputy program. In light of this

support the WSMA Board voted to renew the current patrol contract

for an additional 6 months following its expiry on January 31, 2020.

During this 6 month period the justification for continued renewals will

be evaluated.

NEW YEAR’S EVE FIREWORKS

As New Year’s Eve approaches residents are asked to respect the ban on

letting off fireworks in the subdivision. They may be fun, but they spook

pets, they leave litter on the streets and more importantly they are a

potential fire hazard. If you feel compelled to set off fireworks please go

to a safe area outside of our subdivision. Thanks!

DRAFT MINUTES OF THE SPECIAL MEETING OF

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF WILLIAMSBURG

SETTLEMENT MAINTENANCE ASSOCIATION, INC.,

NOVEMBER 6, 2019

A special meeting of the Board of Directors of the Williamsburg Settlement

Maintenance Association, Inc. was held on Wednesday, November 6,

2019 at 5:30 PM at the Williamsburg Settlement clubhouse, 1602 Hoyt,

Katy, Texas 77449. The meeting was held to address the future of the

WSMA funded security patrol in light of the MUDs’ pending security

contract with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and any change to the

2020 assessment that might be made as a result.

ATTENDANCE

Board Members present were Dave Ellis, Jim Calvert, Ed Shipley, CO Holt,

Chris Cox, Larry Barrow and Bill Petry.

Also, in attendance were Sheriff Deputies Chad King and Wayne Felchak

together with twelve homeowners.

With a quorum being established, the meeting was called to order at 5:30

PM.

HOMEOWNER CONCERNS

One homeowner raised a question on the disposition of material picked

up by our recycling service. Dave Ellis took the action to obtain the

answer from Texas Pride Disposal. The remaining attendees were there to

4

January 2020 | Williamsburg Settlement


express their views or interest in the main topic of the meeting.

FUTURE OF WSMA FUNDED SECURITY PATROL

A number of issues were raised for the Board’s consideration prior to

taking a vote:

One resident expressed his concern about the installation of the security

cameras that are being proposed as part of the MUDs’ security initiative.

Ed Shipley, who chaired the meeting, responded that this is not an HOA

issue and should be taken up with MUD Boards.

Two residents expressed their strong views in favor of the HOA retaining

the existing security patrol service to supplement the patrols that will

be provided by the MUDs. Figures were cited from the monthly security

statistics for the last few years to support the excellent level of security

we have experienced in the Settlement during the tenure of the current

patrols, which are dedicated solely to this subdivision. Concern was

expressed that as the deputies under the pending MUD contract will

need to patrol all of both the MUD 61 and MUD 62 service areas the hours

predicted to be spent in our subdivision might not be achieved.

Each Board member was then given an opportunity to express their

views following, which the following motions were made, seconded,

discussed and voted on:

CO Holt, the HOA security liaison, motioned that the existing patrol

service be allowed to expire following its January 31, 2020 contract

termination date. This motion had 3 votes for and 4 votes against and so

failed to pass.

Jim Calvert then motioned that following its January 31, 2020 contract

termination date the HOA security contract be replaced with a 6 month

contract with an effort made for the hours on patrol to be adjusted to

supplement, rather than to overlap, the MUD security patrol presence in

the subdivision. Further, that during this 6 month period the subdivision

security be monitored to determine whether the money being spent for

continuing the HOA security patrol can be justified. This motion had 4

votes for and 3 votes against so was approved.

RE-VISIT OF 2020 BUDGET AND ANNUAL ASSESSMENT FEE

As the HOA security patrol will now continue at least for the first 7

months of 2020 and could be extended, it was agreed that there is no

basis for reducing the previously approved 2020 assessment fee of $750

per home and the budget as previously presented will remain as is. If

after the expiry of the new 6 month patrol contract the decision is made

not to renew it, at the September 2020 budget meeting the saving will

be factored into the 2021 budget and assessment fee.

HOA FUTURE LEGAL REPRESENTATION

The Association has been notified that the Messock Law Firm, which has

been representing WSMA for many years is closing its office on December

31, 2019.

Cindy Bojé, the Association’s Community Manager, has obtained

proposals from two of the law offices that Crest highly recommends as

a result of their long experience with each. Each law office submitted

Letters of Engagement and fee structures for the Association’s review.

After review of the submitted information and comparison with the

Messock fee structure a motion was made, seconded and unanimously

approved that Holt and Young be engaged as the Association attorney

as of January 1, 2020.

ADJOURNMENT

With no further business to come before the Board, the meeting was

adjourned at 7:46 PM.

The next meeting will be the regular Board meeting held on November

19, 2019 at the community clubhouse.

DRAFT MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE BOARD

OF DIRECTORS OF WILLIAMSBURG SETTLEMENT

MAINTENANCE ASSOCIATION, INC.

NOVEMBER 19, 2019

A meeting of the Board of Directors of the Williamsburg Settlement

Maintenance Association, Inc. was held on Tuesday, November19, 2019

at 5:30 PM at the Crest Management office, 17171 Park Row, Suite 310,

Houston, Texas 77084.

ATTENDANCE

Board Members present were Dave Ellis, Jim Calvert, Ed Shipley, CO Holt,

Chris Cox, Larry Barrow and Bill Petry.

Also, in attendance was Cindy Bojé representing Crest Management and

Sheriff Deputy Chad King.

With a quorum being established, the meeting was called to order at 5:30

PM.

SECRETARY REPORT - APPROVAL OF MINUTES

The minutes of the October 15, 2019 Board Meeting and November 6,

2019 Special Board Meeting were presented and a motion was made,

seconded and unanimously carried to accept the minutes without

change.

HOMEOWNER CONCERNS

There were four homeowners present at the meeting to observe.

SHERIFF PATROL REPORT

CO Holt, our security liaison and Deputy Chad King presented the

October security report. The community continues to enjoy an enviably

low crime rate. A copy of the monthly sheriff report was included in the

meeting packets.

WELCOMING COMMITTEE REPORT

Welcoming Committee Chairman, Larry Barrow, reported that there have

been three new homeowners since the last meeting and he was able to

make contact and visit with one. He will make some follow up attempts

to make contact with the other two homeowners. A copy of the activity

report was included in the meeting packets.

FINANCIAL REVIEW

Dave Ellis presented a report of the October 31, 2019 financials. As of this

date, the money in the bank totaled $636,921.92. This figure includes

checking, money market accounts and CD’s, which are the funds required

to cover both operating expenses and the necessary reserve to fund

maintenance and replacement of the Association’s capital assets. The

delinquency total as of October 31, 2019 was $7,942.75.

OLD BUSINESS

Issues arising from November 6 th Security Patrol Decision - CO informed

the Board that there has been no further communication with the

MUD 61 and 62 Boards regarding the coordination of the existing HOA

security patrol service and the pending contract deputy program being

contracted for by the MUDs. In addition to the contract deputies the

MUD security initiative calls for 16 weekend patrol hours by off-duty

deputies and that Chad King who manages our existing patrol service

will be speaking with the MUDs to offer this coverage. If Chad and his

deputies do contract for this weekend coverage with the MUDs then

this would be factored into the number of hours that will be charged

to the HOA patrol contract. CO stated that discussion of coordination

of responsibilities for monthly reports and vacation watches between

the existing patrol service and the contract deputies will be established

when the MUDs have the contract deputy services under contract. Until

that time our security service and reports will continue as at present.

Community Events Update - Chris Cox stated that the fall garage, which

was held on October 19 th , was successful. He stated that he was still

6

working out the details for communication regarding the Christmas

decoration contest to be held over the weekend of December 14 th -15 th .

Chris stated he would update the Board once more details become

available.

NEW BUSINESS

2020 Security Patrol Contract Approval - The current security patrol

contract terminates January 31, 2020 and as approved at the November

6 th special Board meeting this contract will be renewed for a further 6 (six)

months. At the end of this period the need for both patrol services will be

reevaluated. During these six months an effort will be made for the hours

on patrol to be adjusted to supplement, not overlap, the MUD security

patrol presence in the subdivision.

After a brief discussion, a motion was made, seconded and carried to

approve the signing of the contract extension through July 31, 2020.

ADJOURNMENT TO EXECUTIVE SESSION - With no further business to

come before the Board, the meeting was adjourned into executive

session at 6:15 PM.

Delinquencies - Two accounts remain on the trash suspension list.

Deed Restriction Enforcement - Jim Calvert reviewed the Enforcement

Action Report with the Board. There was no action to be taken this month.

Attorney Action Report - Jim Calvert reviewed the Attorney Action Report

with the Board. There was no action to be taken this month.

ADJOURNMENT

There were no homeowners present to hear a summary of the executive

session. The next meeting will be held on January 21, 2020 at the

community clubhouse.

With no further business to come before the Board, the meeting was

adjourned at 6:30 PM.

NEXT WSMA BOARD MEETING

The next meeting of the WSMA Board of Directors will be held in the

clubhouse on Hoyt Lane at 5:30 PM on Tuesday January 21, 2020. If you

wish to be placed on the agenda, please contact Cindy Bojé of Crest no

later than the Tuesday preceding the meeting date.

PET ID TAGS

Folks - as soon as the vet gives your young pets their Rabies shot

remember to get their ID tags. The Rabies tag lists the name, phone

number and address of the vet. So! All you need to do is put the Rabies

tag onto the pet’s collar and leave it there all the time. That way, if the

pet gets loose, anyone finding him or her can look at the tag to see the

vet’s phone number and call to report the lost animal. Better yet, add

another tag to your pet’s collar that lists the dog or cat’s name and your

own phone number or address. You can get these from any pet store.

When a pet has these but goes astray, anyone finding it can call you and

you can go get him or her right away. Your pet will be very glad to see

you! A happy pet is a loving pet.

VETERINARY PUBLIC HEALTH LEASH LAW

Animals that are not properly restrained pose a threat to all our residents.

While you may know your pet is friendly, an animal running at someone

who is walking by is very scary for that person. Many children are afraid of

animals and become frightened, which could result in the child getting

hurt trying to avoid the animal.

Veterinary Public Health (formerly called Harris County Animal Control)

advises that, “All dogs and cats must be kept under restraint while in the

unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas. The custodian of a dog or

cat is not authorized to have, harbor or keep any unlicensed dog or cat or

to allow any dog or cat to become a stray.”

8

January 2020 | Williamsburg Settlement


Restraint is defined as the control of a dog or cat under the following

circumstances:

1. When it is controlled by a line or leash not more then six (6) feet in

length, if the line or leash is held by a human being who is capable of

controlling or governing the dog or cat in question.

2. When it is within a fully enclosed vehicle.

3. When it is on the premise of the custodian and the animal does not

have access to sidewalk to street.

While it may be nice to have your animal out in the yard while you work

or play, it is against the law, unless the animal is properly restrained.

Let’s all help keep our community a safe and comfortable place for all

our residents by being responsible pet owners. This will not only protect

anyone who may be walking or bicycling in the area, but also the pet

owner who could be held legally responsible or possibly sued for failing

to properly restrain their pet.

KATY AREA PLAYGROUP

A Katy area playgroup for stay at home moms and their infant-preschool

aged children in the Williamsburg area meets every Monday at different

locations. If you interested in participating or finding out more about the

playgroup, please contact the playgroup coordinator, Laura Bannerman,

at llbannerman@gmail.com. Please share this information with neighbors

and friends!

LOCAL DEVELOPER PLEDGES 3-YEAR CONTRIBUTION TO KATY ISD EDUCATION FOUNDATION

Cane Island, home to many parents, grandparents and increasing numbers of Katy ISD students, has joined the corps of Keystone Investors contributing

to the Katy ISD Education Foundation and its Inspiring Imagination teacher grant program. The Foundation’s Investor program allows the community,

both individuals and business leaders like Cane Island, to provide a sound financial platform for Foundation initiatives by committing to three years

or more of support.

Cane Island President Dan Naef joined the Katy ISD Education Foundation for 2019-2020 Inspiring Imagination teacher grant announcements. “It was

one of the most special experiences I’ve had in Katy,” Naef said, “To be present and witness the joy in a teacher’s eyes when they win a grant and to hear

the excitement in their voice, it’s priceless.” Cane Island doesn’t just build homes, it builds community. Naef said, “Nothing says community like taking

care of our children and taking care of the educators who pour into our children.”

The Katy ISD Education Foundation has awarded $1.6 million in its first seven years of Inspiring Imagination teacher grants, impacting students in

classrooms all around the district. Funding for the program is provided in part by long-term investors like Cane Island and annual fundraising events

Fireflies & Foodtrucks and GROOVE. To learn more, contact us at 281-396-6031 or visit www.katyisdeducationfoundation.org.

Spaghetti Squash

You could make this on National Spaghetti Day January 4th! Everyone is

trying to be a little healthier these days, so instead of a pasta spaghetti,

try using spaghetti squash:

DIRECTIONS:

1. To start, cut your squash in half lengthwise. This is definitely the

hardest part of making spaghetti squash, but with a sharp chef’s knife

and some determination you’ll do just fine.

2. Remove the seeds. Drizzle the cut sides with olive oil and season with

salt and pepper. Flip the squash cut-side down on a baking sheet.

3. Pop it in a 400°F oven for 40 minutes. Depending on the size of your

squash, this could take more like an hour. If 40 minutes have passed

and you’re not sure if the squash is ready, pull it out of the oven and

drag the tines of a fork on the cut side. If spaghetti-like strands easily

release from the skin, it’s ready. If not, continue baking and check on it

every 5 to 10 minutes. Over-roasting can lead to soggier “spaghetti,” so

it’s best to keep a close eye on the squash.

4. Shred it! When it’s ready, let cool slightly before creating “spaghetti”

with your fork.

Top with spaghetti sauce or for an even healthier and lower calorie

option, go with a marinara sauce.

Single Serving Healthy

Gardening Tips

• Birds: Provide food and fresh water. More birds die

from lack of water than from lack of food.

• Cacti: Semi-dormant now. Reduce watering.

• Camellias: Plants may be moved. Pick up and discard fallen

blooms.

• Cultivation: Changes in design may now be made, new

beds dug and old ones rebuilt. Correct defects in drainage.

Incorporate gypsum into heavy soils: repeat in three weeks.

Dig granite dust, rock phosphate and quantities of organic

matter into soil. Allow time for settling before planting.

• Fertilize: Daylilies, spuria, Louisiana and bearded irises

with complete fertilizer. Give strawberries 1 teaspoon

ammonium sulfate, keeping six inches away from plant.

Fertilize pansies with manure tea or blood meal. Water in.

• Fruits: Plant fruit trees. Mulch figs with grass or straw to

prevent freeze damage to crown.

• House Plants: Water, when surface soil is crumbly dry.

Wash dust off leaves to open pores. Mist often. Inspect for

diseases and insects. Reduce water for poinsettias.

• Lawns: Remove thatch aerate, and feed with low nitrogen

mixture.

• Pests: For petal blight prevention, spray azaleas and

camellias as flowers open. Spray for scale with dormant oil

solution if temperature will be above 35˚ and below 85˚

for next 48 hours. Always read and heed manufacturer’s

directions before spraying.

• Propagation: Ivy cuttings root easily this month and next.

Root cuttings of shrubs in mixture of loam and coarse sand;

keep damp and semi-shaded until rooted.

• Prune: Fruit trees in advance of new growth. Prune to

groom and shape. Do not remove too much. Remove dead

wood from trees and shrubs before spring buds swell, but

do not prune spring bloomers. Prune crape myrtles. Prune

nandina and others of similar growth habit by cutting

unwanted canes out at base of plant.

• Roses: Annual pruning about the middle of February, just

before the spring buds break. To prevent later appearance

of disease in the old beds, keep garden clean of debris and

weeds. Complete preparation of new beds for roses.

• Transplanting: January is one of the best months to

transplant woody plants, both evergreen and deciduous,

especially trees. Energy will be expended on roots instead

of foliage. Learn ultimate size and cultural needs of tree

or plant before buying. Consider dwarf varieties to avoid

crowding later. Group plants of similar cultural needs. Do

not work wet soil. Assure good drainage. Keep plants moist.

• Vegetables: Prepare beds, preferably raised for drainage,

with about 50% humus, including rotted manure.

• Winter Protection: Expect freeze any time; plan for

protection of tender plants. Water. Remove coverings,

particularly plastic, when temperature rises. Protect low

plants with dry leaves, pine needles or soil mulch, but

remove when weather warms.
