still important.

During the coronavirus

Screening all patients,

ensuring only those without

COVID-19 symptoms are

seen in the office.

Getting your annual mammogram is one of the most

important steps you can take to stay healthy. That’s why

our Breast Care Centers are taking every necessary

precaution during the coronavirus pandemic to keep

you and our staff members safe.

Wearing masks and other

personal protective equipment

while providing patient care.

NOTES FROM THE BOARD

2020 HOA DUES

The 2020 dues were due January 1 st , delinquent February 1 st . If you

need more time to pay your dues, request a payment plan now

before being turned over to the attorney for collection and avoid

paying much more. Save yourself a lot of extra money and possible

judgment and foreclosure. Unlike many other subdivisions, there

is no charge for a payment plan if you enter into one before being

turned over to the attorney’s office for collection.

IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED YOUR INVOICE, PLEASE CONTACT

SPECTRUM ASSOCIATION MANAGEMENT AT 281-343-9178.

ARE YOU SAVING THE MONEY YOU DESERVE ON YOUR

PROPERTY TAXES?

While doing some research on our neighborhood recently, I

noticed that numerous Westfield Homeowners have not filed

for Homestead Exemption on their property to save money on

property taxes. (You must occupy the home to qualify for this

exemption.)

A homestead exemption helps you save on taxes on your home.

An exemption removes part of the value of your property from

taxation and lowers your taxes. For example, if your home is

valued at $100,000 and you qualify for a $20,000 exemption, you

pay taxes on a value of $80,000.

An Application for Residential Homestead Exemption (same

form for over-65, disability, over-55 surviving spouse or 100%

disabled veteran homestead exemptions) can be found by

hovering over Forms Page at www.hcad.org, choose popular

forms, then choose form #11-13, which is the 1 st form on the

list. Homestead exemption, General Residential, over 65,

disability, over 55 surviving spouse. Follow the instructions

on the form.

• Diagnose & Repair

• Panel Upgrades

• Generators

• Surge Protection

• Custom Lighting

• Smart Switches

Randy & Sandi Deyo, Owner-operator TMEL 33838

FREE Estimates ● 2 Hour Appointment Windows

5 Year Warranty ● Flexible Payment Plans

Military/Veteran Discount ● Senior Discount

To check your property to see if you have the homestead

exemption, go to hcad.org, hover over property search, then

choose search by address and fill in your address. (You will have

better success if you do not use dr. cir.pl. etc.) Look about halfway

down on the left under Exemption Type, this will show the type of

exemption you have or none if you do not have any exemptions.

There are videos to watch for complete instructions to fill out the

homestead exemption form and the documents you will need to

send in with the application.

You can contact the Harris County Appraisal District at 713-957-

7800 if you have any questions.

NUISANCE ABATEMENT

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office has an overall Nuisance

Abatement program for neighborhoods. Empty homes with junk

and clutter in the front and back yards, eyesores for the community,

inoperable vehicles, health and safety hazards… these and much

more are addressed under Texas law as it applies to Nuisance

Abatements in the Traffic Code and the Health and Safety code. All

Deputy Contract units are trained in every Nuisance Abatement

law on the books. Each law will be enforced quickly.

Once again, we are putting a burden on the Sheriff’s Office that

rightfully belongs on other agencies and the homeowners’

associations, but this is the most expeditious way of solving

the many problems we are seeing i. So, if you know of a home

that is abandoned, has a junk vehicle in the driveway or street,

trash, debris, high grass, a dangerous swimming pool, etc.,

please contact the management company, Spectrum Association

Management, 281-343-9178, ask them to forward the information

to our deputy or the district nuisance abatement deputy who will

act on it immediately.

This program began in 2011 following the training of all deputies.

New deputies who bid into contracts are trained in Nuisance

Abatement prior to their new assignment. The vehicle Nuisance

Abatement and parking code are enforced in an ongoing policy.

The health and safety laws will supplement that for further

improvement in our neighborhoods. The Harris County Sheriff’s

Office is partnering with the Harris County Health Department

and the County Attorney in an effort to clean up these problems.

REPORT STREETLIGHT OUTAGES

Please report outages of streetlights to Centerpoint Energy. You

will need the pole number as well as the nearest street address

and call 713-207-2222 or go to their website and complete an

online form. It is very important that non-working lights are

reported for the safety of our each of us. We pay the exact same

whether the light is working or not.

PREPARE YOUR HOME FOR WINTER

Preparing your home for winter can save you time and money. A little

preparation time in November can save you from the heartache of

these winter disasters.

GUTTERS

Remove leaves and other debris from gutters, so they move and properly

drain. Improper drainage can cause seepage into the house causing

water to drip from the ceiling and walls.

TREES

It is important to trim the trees especially over the roof area, driveway

and walkways. Ice and wind could cause weak or dead branches to break.

This could damage your home, your car or injure someone.

INSULATION/PIPES

How’s your insulation? Proper insulation saves in your utility bills and

also helps protect pipes from freezing. Wrap all exposed pipes. Check for

cracks and leaks and have them repaired to prevent more costly repairs

later. Learn how to shut off the water. If your pipes do freeze, shutting

off the water may help prevent the pipes from bursting. Keep the

temperature inside the house at least 65 degrees. A lower temperature

may not keep the pipes from freezing.

HEATING SYSTEM

It is important to service your heating system at least once a year. If you

have a wood burning fireplace, the chimney should also be serviced once

a year. Smoke and fire alarms should be working properly and you might

consider installing a carbon dioxide detector.

IF YOU ARE AWAY FROM HOME

If you are going to be gone for an extended period of time during very

cold weather, drain the pipes to prevent freezing. Also have someone

check on your home regularly. If there is a problem, it can be fixed

quickly, possibly preventing further damage. Remember to have mail and

newspaper delivery held and notify the constables that you will be gone.

Go to www.constablepct4.com to put a vacation watch on your home.

TEENAGE JOB SEEKERS

If you are between 12 and 18 and would like to be added to

the teenage job seeker’s list, please fill out the form on our

website (www.krenekprinting.com, click submissions and

choose Jobseekers) with your name, birthdate (mo. & yr.), phone

number, year you will graduate and the name of your newsletter/

subdivision. Check the list of jobs you want on your form. Please

make sure your email is correct, we send emails in the summer to

make sure all the info is still good and that you want to stay on the

list. If we do not hear back from you after 3 tries, we will remove

you from the list until we do. Must have parent(s) permission.

DISCLAIMER: Neither the subdivision, nor Krenek Printing is responsible for those

listed on the Teenage Job Seeker List. Please ask for and check out references if

you do not personally know those listed. This is just a list of teenagers from the

subdivision who wish to find part time jobs. Responsibility for any work done by

these teenagers is between those seeking helpers and the teens and their parents.

HOUSTON ASTROS ALEX BREGMAN CHARITY

DONATES IPADS TO KATY ISD

It was a day to remember for many Katy Independent School District

students, who had a visit from Houston Astros third baseman and

shortstop Alex Bregman and the school received brand new iPads,

courtesy of the Bregman Cares Charity. Four Katy ISD schools, including

Leonard, McRoberts, Griffin and Stephens elementary schools, welcomed

the baseball player to their campus for the donation, all while practicing

COVID-19 safety protocols.

“It feels great to see their smiles,” said Houston Astros Alex Bregman.

“Schools are doing a great job of keeping students safe and also helping

them learn. Katy ISD has done a great job in these tough times and is

helping the kids through their learning. It’s been great to be able to hand

out iPads today,” added Bregman.

The Bregman Cares mission is to provide awareness, support, time and

resources to children locally and throughout the country. For the past

few years, the organization has focused on donating technology devices

and educational resources for students.

KATY ISD PROVIDING FREE MEALS

TO ALL KATY AREA STUDENTS

Through an extended waiver from the U.S. Department of Agriculture

(USDA) and Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA), Katy ISD began

providing free meals to all Katy area students on Monday, September

21 st . Students can receive breakfast and lunch at no cost through

December 31 st or pending available funds through the USDA and TDA.

“All students are eligible for one breakfast and one lunch meal per day per

federal guidance,” said Nutrition & Food Service Executive Director Donna

Pittenger. “Parents can however add funds to their student’s Pay N’ Go

meal account for a la carte purchases or in preparation for when the

USDA waiver ends,” added Pittenger.

For students participating in Katy ISD virtual instruction, as well as

children 18 and under not enrolled in Katy ISD, breakfast and lunch can

be picked up at designated school curbside distribution sites from 4 to

6 PM, Monday through Friday. Meals are packaged to be heated and

eaten at home and are to be picked up a day before the intended use.

Distribution sites include:

· Cinco Ranch High School, 23440 Cinco Ranch Blvd, Katy, TX 77494

· Mayde Creek High School, 19202 Groeschke Road, Katy, TX 77084

· Morton Ranch High School, 21000 Franz Road, Katy, TX 77449

The TDA policy now requires parents picking up meals, without a

student, to present one of the following forms of documentation for

each child: an official letter, email, electronic school application, student

report card, student ID card, attendance records with student’s names

or a birth certificate. Once the waiver expires, Katy ISD will switch back

to the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program. Free and reduced

meal applications must still be submitted for the 2020-2021 school year

to determine benefits after the waiver ends. Parents can visit schoolcafe.
