HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO OUR NEIGHBORS
The Westlake CIA Board and volunteers wish each of you a very Happy
Holiday Season…A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
IS CHANGED THIS YEAR…
The WCIA will be holding a special Christmas event for the children of
both Westlake and Westlake Forest on Saturday, December 5, 2020.
Christmas music will set the theme for this neighborhood celebration.
This event will be held in Westlake Forest only. All residents of Westlake
and Westlake Forest are invited to bring their young children to this
special opening of the holiday season.
• The Christmas Gifts Event will begin at 10 AM and end at Noon.
• This will be a drive-through event due to COVID.
• The line forms EAST of the driveway on Franz Rd that turns into the
parking lot. Please Stay in your vehicle.
• A deputy will be on duty to guide vehicles and make sure all is safe.
Each child who attends in a vehicle will receive a Christmas gift bag of
various items and some candies. The civic center will be decorated, the
drive through canopy will be at the entrance to the civic center. Gifts will
be given to each child under the age of 18 in the vehicle.
We are sorry that Breakfast with Santa Claus was not possible this year. But
we hope to open the Christmas Season with a little cheer for children…
and parents in our community.
CONTEST IS UNDERWAY
The annual Holiday/Christmas decorating contest in Westlake Forest and
Westlake will be held again this year. Each subdivision will receive first,
second and third place prizes. First place is a $100 gift certificate, second
place is a $75 gift certificate and third place is a $50 gift certificate.
Many of our residents enjoy decorating their homes and yards for the
holiday season. We encourage each of you to participate. Start decorating
now as the judging will be held on the 12 th and 13 th of December in order
to give our residents two full weekends in December to decorate. Awards
will be given within 24-48 hours by a Board representative to the resident.
NO BOARD MEETING PLANNED FOR DECEMBER
The Westlake CIA will not be holding a homeowner’s meeting in December
2020. At the time of this writing, no executive session is planned. If it
becomes necessary to hold an executive meeting, announcements will
be made on the westlakecia.org website, nextdoor.com and through the

REPORTING NUISANCES &
HEALTH HAZARDS TO HARRIS COUNTY
If your neighbor has garbage, junk, trash, construction materials,
mattresses, box springs, couches, chairs or any other type of junk that
attracts vermin, you can directly report this to the Harris County Public
Health and Environmental Services online. You can also report dead
birds and other types of problems as well. Here is the website for online
reporting: www.hcphes.org/templates/onlineservices.htm. Telephone
calls might be necessary if you do not receive a reply as to the status of
the investigation. Keep a copy of your online form in case that is the case.
The telephone number is: 713-439-6000.
TREAT OUR PARKS, GREENBELT & AMENITIES
WITH RESPECT AND CARE
Both Westlake Forest and Westlake have added many lovely new
amenities for the enjoyment of all of our residents. We have also installed
cameras throughout these areas and we have noticed that some residents
are not clear on how to behave in the parks. Please refrain from picking
flowers, throwing rocks from around the fountains onto the fountains,
wading in the fountain, climbing on the fountain, dumping sand into
the streambed at the Westlake park, driving vehicles on the greenbelt
in Westlake or the parks in either Westlake or Westlake Forest, drinking
alcohol on any community owned property or vandalizing any of the
community owned property.
While most of us have a basic understanding of how to behave in public,
there are a few deviants who frequent our parks and other common areas.
The vandalism and graffiti simply waste community financial resources. If
you see anyone who is behaving destructively in our parks and common
areas, please call the Sheriff’s Office and also let a Board member know
immediately. We do not want our parks and common areas to take on a
rundown look that is ugly and repulsive.
AND ONGOING ACTIVITY
Some of our residents are confused about whom to call for various types
of crimes and suspicious ongoing activity. We have a contract with the
Sheriff’s Department, which includes a deputy in a marked vehicle in
our subdivisions 40 hours per week. Westlake and Westlake Forest share
these costs in order to provide a more secure environment for you and
your family. In addition to our contract deputy, we have deputies who
work in the subdivisions at odd hours of the day and night-sometimes in
marked units, sometimes in civilian vehicles.
However, if you do not call the Sheriff’s Office when a crime occurs or
when you see suspicious activity, the deputies have no way of knowing
that a crime has occurred or that suspicious activity is happening in an
ongoing fashion. We encourage you to contact the Sheriff’s Office for

any type of crime… whether it is serious in nature such as a burglary of
a home or motor vehicle or suspicious activity that is occurring at the
moment. To report crimes, call the following numbers:
Non Emergency: 713-221-6000
If you are observing ongoing activity in your area of the neighborhood,
call Annette Baldwin at 281-578-9118. This telephone number is listed
on the inside of the back page of your newsletter each month. Ongoing
activity can be anything from teenagers consistently violating curfew
to loud music to possible drug dealing from a home. It can also include
illegal parking, hazardous waste dumping, environmental threats, etc. If
you wish to speak with the contract deputy about the activity, he will call
you, come to your home or meet you at the Sheriff’s Office Store front
located on Fry Road. If you want Ms. Baldwin to talk with the deputy
and follow up on the resolution of activity, she can call you when the
information is made available.
TRAVELING DURING THE HOLIDAY BREAK?
If you plan to be away from home for more than one night during the
Holiday break, you can complete a vacation watch form by going to
the Harris County Sheriff’s Office website at: www.harriscountyso.org/
Or you can call the Clay Road substation at 281-463-2648 and ask for a
vacation watch form to be emailed or faxed to you. If you are on our info.
email@example.com email list, a form can be emailed to you; you will
then complete the form and send it to the Sheriff’s Office Fax at 281-463-
8246. A form can also be found on our website: westlakecia.org.
Our contract deputy and district patrol will check your home for any signs
of criminal activity throughout the day while you are gone. In addition,
the patrols will pass by your home more frequently during your absence,
proactively providing higher visibility.
It takes only a few minutes to complete a vacation watch form. Make sure
you have made arrangements for newspaper pick up and mail pick up
while you are away.
ANNUAL DUES ARE PAYABLE
BY JANUARY 31, 2021
The annual dues of $475 per year are payable on or before January
31, 2021. The invoices for dues were mailed and received before early-
October 2020. This was done to enable you to pay something each
month prior to the deadline of January 31, 2021, if you wanted to do this.
The mailing also included a payment contract which, during COVID, the
Board wanted to offer to each homeowner who might need it.
We encourage each of our homeowners to pay promptly as the cost to the
homeowner for collection begins mounting on February 1, 2021.
If you would like to establish a monthly pre-payment program for your
2021 dues, contact Inframark @ 281-870-0585 and explain that you want
to set up a pre-payment program for your 2021 dues.
TAKE PRECAUTIONS AGAINST
CRIME DURING HOLIDAYS
The holidays are busy times and our minds are preoccupied with
shopping, baking, planning parties, church activities and so much more.
The holidays are also lucrative times for criminals. Here are some tips for
Never leave packages or attractive items in a vehicle. Lock these in the
trunk. Many car burglaries are occurring at various malls and shopping
areas on the west and northwest side of Houston.
Make arrangements for UPS, Fed Ex or USPS packages to be delivered to a
neighbor who is always home or to your office. Leaving packages at your
front door is an open invitation to thieves.
Solicitors at your door need to be analyzed carefully before unlocking
the door. If you do not have a window that allows a view of the person
who is at your door, consider installing a peep hole in the door. Never
open the door to someone you do not know. If someone knocks at your
door that you don’t recognize, ask them to state their reason for being at
your home. If you don’t want to talk with them, tell them to leave your
property as you are not interested. If they do not leave immediately,
call the Harris County Sheriff’s Office at 9-1-1 as you should be feeling
threatened at this point. If you have an outside storm door, keep it locked
at all times when you are home.
There is an uptick in online email from hackers who have various nefarious
intentions. Never click on a link that is sent from someone on your email
list but includes no explanation of something you are expecting. Friends
get hacked and these links which are used when emailing their lists (that
would include you) allow instant access to your computer for various
reasons that are either criminal or very shady.
If you get a phone call from the IRS saying that you owe them money,
hang up. The IRS never calls taxpayers about taxes owed. Their
communications are relayed only through the US mail.
Do not leave a garage door opener in your vehicle which is parked outside
of the garage. The reason for this is obvious. Consider locking your garage
door from the inside when you come home after work or shopping. This
eliminates criminals who use random garage door frequencies to break
Try to shop with at least one other person. Stay together and be aware of
your surroundings while in parking lots and in stores.
Watch your credit card and your driver’s license. When you pay for your
purchases, you will often be asked for your driver’s license with your
credit card; you will always have to present identification (usually a
driver’s license) when you write a check. Yes, the lines are long and you
want to hurry through your transaction, but don’t be tempted to engage
in conversation or watch anything or anyone but the clerk processing
your transaction. Both of these items should be within your sight at all
times. Before you sign a credit card receipt, ask for your credit card and
driver’s license. The holidays are great times for identity thieves and those
who would steal your credit cards. Be very aware of what is happening
when you pay for your purchase. Put everything away before leaving the
Never leave your purse in a locked or unlocked vehicle. Never set your
purse down while shopping. Never put your purse in a shopping cart.
Always have your purse in your hand or over your shoulder. To avoid
purse snatching, cross the purse so that the strap is over one shoulder
and the bag is hanging on the opposite side of your body. Men should
carry wallets, check books and credit cards in the front pockets of their
pants or in a shirt or interior suit pocket.
When going to your car with your purchases, check the lot for suspicious
people. Carefully check around and glance under your vehicle. If a closed
van is parked next to the driver’s door, slide in through the passenger
side. Check the back seat and back floor before getting into your vehicle.
If you are loading small children, lock your purse in the trunk with your
packages (keep the keys in your hand or pocket). After the children are
secured, take another look around for suspicious activity before you open
the trunk to get your purse. When you get into your vehicle, immediately
lock the doors, start the engine and drive away. If you feel insecure going
into the parking lot, ask for a security guard to accompany you.
When returning home, immediately pull into your garage. If this is not an
option, park the car in the driveway and immediately unload all contents
Westlake / Westlake Forest | December 2020 5
and lock the car. Stay alert during this process.
Do not put attractive packages next to windows that offer an easy view
from the street.
When leaving your home for the evening, leave some lights and a radio or
television turned on. Leave one outside light on. Upon returning home,
check the sides of your house and the area across the street and adjacent
to your home from your vehicle before parking. If you are a woman alone,
get your house key ready before you exit your car. Lock your car as you
are leaving it and immediately go to your door, unlock it, go inside and
relock the door.
All homes should be equipped with long dead bolt key locks. Windows
should be locked when you are not at home or are not awake.
If you are leaving for the holidays, ask a friend or neighbor to pick up
the newspapers and your mail each day or file a stop delivery for these.
Complete a vacation watch form and submit it to the Sheriff’s Office in
Clay Road. Fax this to 281-463-8246.
By taking a few precautions, you will insure a safe and happy holiday for
you and your family.
PARKING LAWS STRICTLY
ENFORCED DURING HOLIDAYS
Often, we have guests during the holidays. Please advise them that the
parking laws are enforced in both Westlake and Westlake Forest. Tell
them to park with the traffic and not to block fire hydrants or neighbors’
driveways. Fire engines and ambulances must have clear access to each
street in both neighborhoods at all times.
IT’S TREE PLANTING SEASON
December and January are ideal times in Houston to plant trees and
shrubs. The cool weather combined with the rain offer trees and shrubs
the opportunity to establish themselves. In addition, the soft winter
sunshine and warm days nurture the plants.

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.
