ANNUAL HOA FEES DUE

The Board was able to avoid raising dues for 2020 and the annual

statement has been mailed to all homeowners. The dues should be paid

in January. If you anticipate not being able to pay your Westgate fees for

2020 on time, be sure to call Inframark (281-870-0585) to discuss getting

on a payment plan before more fees are tacked on-from the attorney,

etc. $635 can turn into $1,000+ very quickly. Even if you don’t think

you can pay all at once, you need to call Inframark to make payment

arrangements; DON’T WAIT and cost yourself MORE money.

These dues help pay for landscaping, electricity, water, refurbishing and

adding amenities and pool management, among other things. It helps

Westgate continue to be a great community with stable or increasing

property values. If you’d ever like details of how your dues are spent,

you can always ask our management company. Also, go to our annual

meeting and you will receive a copy of the financials.

DEADLINE FOR HOA BOARD ELECTION IN MARCH

At the Annual Homeowners’ Meeting in March, one position on the HOA

Board of Directors is up for election. Abel Gonzalez is in this position

currently. If you are a Westgate homeowner and you’d like to run for this

position, you MUST SUBMIT your INTENT TO RUN BY Monday, February

24, 2020, to our management company, Inframark, by contacting Angela

Bumann at Angela.Bumann@Inframark.com (also copy the Board at

board@westgatetx.net) or calling 281-870-0585 (Inframark).

If you have any questions about what Board Directors do, feel free to

email us. Having good Board members can make a big difference in the

quality of life in a neighborhood.

HOA Board members should:

• be HOMEOWNERS OF RECORD

• protect Westgate’s property values

• have common sense

• care about the community, not just individual agendas

• go to monthly meetings to conduct business

• spend other time in between meetings on Board business.

PROCEDURE WHEN FILING A REPORT

WITH THE SHERIFF’S DEPT.

If you ever have to file a report with the Sheriff’s Department, whether

after calling 911 or the nonemergency number (713-221-6000), be sure

to let the deputy know that Westgate has a contract with the Sheriff’s

Dept. through our MUD district (Harris County MUD #70). That way,

the incident will be reported to our contract deputies, giving them

information on what to look for in our community. Also, be sure to report

the issue to our Crime Watch committee at crimewatch@westgatetx.net.

They discuss the problems with our deputies as well.

WHY YOU SHOULD ALWAYS CALL

THE NON-EMERGENCY NUMBER

Please call the non-emergency number, 713-221-6000, when you see

suspicious activity. A couple of recent calls have resulted in getting a

couple felons off our streets. When an incident happens - suspicious

person or vehicle, someone rifles through your car, etc - call the nonemergency

number whether anything was taken or not, whether

damage was done or not.

Our contract officer spoke to some residents while he was responding

to a call. They informed him that they did share info on social media but

didn’t call HCSO. HCSO is not monitoring Social media.

HCSO put their non-contract officers where there are problems. No calls

= no problems. One call a week or so does not prompt a concern. But if

everyone who posted on social media called it in, it would be, then HCSO

would be justified in allocating more resources in our area to combat

crime: 713-221-6000.

STREETLIGHT OUTAGES

If you see a streetlight out, please report outages to CenterPoint Energy

at 713-207-2222 or 800-332-7143; also, at www.centerpointenergy.com.

You will need the pole number, the black and white numbers listed

vertically on the pole, to report the outage. This is something you can

do to help keep your community safe. Otherwise, it may take a while for

Centerpoint to notice it is out.

GIRL SCOUTS OF SAN JACINTO COUNCIL

COPPER CREEK MEADOWS COMMUNITY

COOKIES COMING SOON!

Girl Scouts will be out and about selling cookies beginning February

1 st - March 22 nd . Eager Girl Scouts will be going door to door and holding

cookie booths to fund their adventures! Please purchase a box (or 4)

and help them reach their goals.

COOKIES POWER AMAZING ADVENTURES FOR GIRLS

When you buy a box of delicious Girl Scout Cookies, you’re powering

amazing, year-round experiences for every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter,

Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) extraordinaire in your community who

sells them-that’s right, proceeds stay local and are reinvested in girls!

Big picture: as a cookie customer, you’re actually helping the next

generation of female entrepreneurs get an important taste of

what it takes to be successful-teamwork, planning and a positive

outlook. Beyond that, you’re actually narrowing the gender gap

in entrepreneurship by nurturing girls’ skills early and often. How

awesome is that?

Girl Scouting is open to all girls ages 5 (must be in kindergarten) through

18 who are willing to accept the Girl Scout Promise and law. Copper

Creek Meadows Community serves girls in the residence areas for the

elementary schools listed below, as well as the corresponding middle

and high schools. Home schooled and private school students are always

welcome. Our elementary schools are: Birkes, Fiest, Hairgrove, Horne,

Kirk, Lee, Lieder, Lowery, Metcalf, Owens, Tipps, Wilson, St. Elizabeth

Ann Seton, Texas Christian School and Christian Life Center. More

information about Girl Scouts may be found on the Girl Scouts of San

Jacinto Council website, www.gssjc. The Council phone number is 713-

292-0300. For information on the Copper Creek Meadows Community,

please contact CCMgirlscouts@gmail.com. Girl Scouts builds girls of

courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.

Lighter Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo

Ingredients:

2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts

2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

4 cloves garlic, minced

ground black pepper to taste

2 cups heavy cream

2 egg yolks

salt to taste

1 pound fettuccine

1 sprig chopped fresh parsley

2 cups freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, divided

Directions: Combine chicken breasts and chicken broth in a saucepan

over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low;

simmer for 5 minutes. Turn breasts, cover and simmer another 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and let sit with the cover on for 15 minutes.

Remove chicken breasts from the broth and set aside to cool, reserving

the broth in the saucepan. Once the chicken is cool enough to handle,

cut into bite-size slices. Return the chicken broth to medium heat and

cook until reduced to 1 cup. Stir garlic, black pepper and heavy cream

into the reduced broth; bring to a simmer and remove from heat.

Whisk egg yolks in a bowl until smooth. Beat 1 tablespoon of the warm

cream mixture into the eggs until thoroughly incorporated; repeat until

about 1/2 cup of the warm cream mixture is used. Whisk the warm cream

and egg mixture back into the saucepan with the remaining cream

mixture. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until the

mixture almost comes to a simmer and thickens, about 5 minutes. Season

with salt and black pepper to taste.

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook fettuccine in

boiling water, stirring occasionally, until nearly cooked through, about

7 minutes. Drain.

Stir parsley, 1 cup of Parmigiano-Reggiano and cream mixture into the

pasta. Remove from heat, cover and let sit for a few minutes until thick.

Fold chicken and 1 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano into the pasta mixture to

serve.
