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

BRADFORD COLONY 1 & 2

(BC1&2) NEWS FROM THE BOARD

The Board wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

ANNUAL MEETING

Our annual meeting did not have enough proxies and/or attendance to

meet quorum so it is re-scheduled. Please see notification in TownSq on

new meeting date. It will still be held virtually on-line. The 2021 approved

budget will be presented and election of officers will be held in the

annual meeting.

ASSESSMENT

As a reminder, annual assessment is due on January 1 st of every year and

late fees + interest will be added to your balance if payment is not posted

to your account by 1/31/2021. The payment will have to be received

by PMG’s processing center and posted to your account on or before

1/31/2021 to avoid late fees and interest, not the post-mark date or date

you make an electronic payment since it take time for processing. So

please mail you payment early to allow time for processing. Taking the

payment physically to PMG DOES NOT expedite the process because PMG

does not process the payments in their office, they simply mail it for you.

The assessment is due even if you do not receive an invoice in mail. The

invoice will be mailed some time in late Nov. or early Dec. Not getting

one in mail does not mean you don’t have to pay. We thank all those

homeowners who have always paid timely. In the past Board may have

written-off some late fees if they are only a few days late but we will stop

doing this as it is unfair to others who pay on time. So please be aware

that if you do not allow time for payment processing, a late fee + interest

will be applied to your account every month until it is paid off.

MISC.

As the weather gets cooler, a lot of animals are seeking warmer shelter.

A lot of cats and kittens will actually climb into your car’s engine block to

sleep to keep warm. It is always a good habit if you park your car outside on

the driveway, to gently pound the hood before starting your car. This will

startle any kittens hiding inside to run away. I have had many times having

kittens, even small cats hiding there on winter nights and cold days, giving

them a “notice to get away” will eliminate the chance to injuring them or

displacing them in a strange place if they “hitch hike” in your car.

Most families cook big holiday meals around this time. We can help to

prevent clogging of the sewer system by not putting cooking oil and

grease down the sink or drain, but instead wipe and collect waste oil in

glass jars and dispose in garbage for small quantities, for large quantity

like those used in deep fryers, you can take them to Harris County

Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility (6900 Hahl Road on

West Little York just north of 290, you may need to check for opening

schedule online or make appointment due to the pandemic); don’t put

food scrapes into the sink, out them in the garbage.

MONTHLY MEETING

Our monthly meeting is scheduled to be held monthly on 2 nd Tuesday at

7 PM. The meetings are still expected to be a conference call instead of

face-to-face meeting. Meeting information can always be found in our

TownSq app.

BRADFORD COLONY SECTION 3

(BCS3) GARAGE SALES

At present, there are no plans to have a neighborhood wide garage sale

for BCS3 this year. But the Bylaws allow for individual residents to have

up to four garage sales per year. If you are interested in having your own

garage sale, please contact any Board member to let them know you are

planning to do this.

Thank you for your cooperation as to this issue.

(BCS3) CONTACT THE BOARD

As is the case with everything in our small neighborhood, every resident

should feel free to contact any Board member as to any issue or question

that you have about BCS3. Contact information for all the Board members

is located inside of this publication.

CHARLESTOWN COLONY

(CHC) NOTES FROM THE BOARD

MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Let’s put 2020 to bed! Due to COVID 19, 2020 has been a challenging year

for many of us. We have had to adapt to working remotely which may

shape future office atmospheres post COVID 19. Some of us have lost

our jobs or have been furloughed. If we have school age children, we’ve

had to balance our kid’s educational needs while working from home.

Many of us have 9-months of Cabin Fever! Soon, we will be able to say

good-bye to COVID 19, because now, there is a vaccine! This is the time of

year to reflect on the road ahead of us and be thankful for our family and

friends. It has been a tough year, but we have survived it! We are Houston

Strong and resilient! With that being said, we still need to continue taking

COVID 19 precautions until we’ve been vaccinated especially now with

winter weather on the horizon.

Meet in greet in Charlestown Colony Park - Coming soon with our sheriff

deputies. We will post a message on the Nextdoor app.

Yard of the Month:

We have continued to do, “Yard of the Month.” However, delivering the

gift cards has been time consuming and a real challenge. If you won yard

of the month and have not received your gift card, please contact Heather

Palomo at 832-418-9020 to claim it. We haven’t heard from anyone.

Due to the lack of advertising within the colonies, Charlestown Colony

had to reduce the amount of articles published in the newsletter. Please

see the back of the Krenek Magazine for upcoming events.

Please Stop Parking in Front of the Charlestown Colony Park!

From Our Board: It is dangerous for our children to play in the park with

cars parked in front of it. Trailers are a deed restriction violation.

Trash Pick-Up:

Trash days are Monday and Thursday: Please do not put the trash out

until the night before trash pick-up. If trash is left out, it is exposed to

rodents.

Parked Cars on Streets Close Stop Signs, Commercial Vehicles & Trailers:

• We are still seeing cars parked on the street close to stop signs which

becomes very dangerous for drivers to maneuver around oncoming

traffic. Please park cars safely on the streets to avoid accidents. We love

our residents and do not want to see anyone injured.

• There are several community parking areas around the park and patio

homes in the front of our subdivision. Please do not park there longer

necessary. Please be cognizant of our neighbors. If you haven’t seen tow

signs already, these will be posted soon. Cars parked in Charlestown

Colony community parking spots longer than necessary will be towed at

the owner’s expense.

• It is a violation of our deed restrictions to park commercial vehicles,

trailers, etc. in public view for an excessive amount of time. The number

of hours these vehicles can be parked on the street is limited. Please refer

to our deed restrictions. Harris County will be conducting a traffic study

in our area to determine where street tow signs will be posted

2020 HOA Annual Assessments:

If you have not paid the annual HOA dues by now, it is delinquent!

New Application: https://app.townsq.io:

The management company is using a new application which is much

more robust than the previous online website. To register for the

application, the HOA account number and an email address is needed.

Within the application, HOA dues can be paid, messages can be sent

to the management company, other requests for home improvement

projects etc. can also be done by click or swipe.

Home Renovation Projects:

We will no longer tolerate work being done on the outside of the houses

ie: roofing, paint or any additions without approval from the Board. If it

continues the Board will take action. We all need to work together, every

December 2020 | Colonies


property owner has a copy of the homeowners association bylaws. In

adhering to these rules all of us keep our property value up.

Got The Nextdoor App? https://nextdoor.com/

It only takes a few minutes to sign up and it helps keep everyone informed

on current events in our area.

Annual Dues Payment:

Our management company has new policies and procedures in place to

collect on past due HOA assessments. If these have not been paid yet,

please make every effort to pay or make a payment arrangement. The

Board worked diligently to maintain our HOA dues at $330 for 2020.

HELP HORNE ELEMENTARY!

An easy way to help our school is to turn trash into cash. Horne Elementary

participates in the Box Tops for Education program. Some of the grocery

items we use have Box Tops on them. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents for

the school. You would pick up a dime on street - so cut out the Box Tops

and donate to Horne! Y

ou can find the Box Tops logo on hundreds of products like Cheerios®,

Hamburger Helper® and Kleenex®, in almost every aisle of the store. To

donate the Box Tops, simply bring them to the reception desk at Horne or

give them to a family with children who attend Horne. Let’s collect them

all year long and give Horne a big boost to start the new school year!

“I would highly recommend using Marcos A/C. It was an

outstanding experience and our new A/C unit works

great! Mike was awesome! He helped us through the

entire process and demonstrated professionalism,

thorough knowledge of the product, and was super

friendly. Alex and his team of installers were very

efficient and friendly on the day of installation as well.

Overall, an excellent experience! ~ Nick P.
