A few updates to share:
Republic trash barrels were delivered to homes where they were not being used earlier this week. Our contract with Republic actually requires use of these barrels but Republic has been flexible on this. Republic is now encouraging all owners to use the barrels. It is the board’s understanding that Republic will continue to pick up garbage outside the barrel so long as the volume is modest (at the driver’s discretion).
Our contract specifies pickup of one barrel worth of trash per home. If you need more than one barrel, please contact Republic, www.republicservices.com.
We apologize for not providing any advance notification of the barrel delivery. We emphasized to Republic the need to improve their communications.
The posted speed limit within the Fells is 20 mph. It’s easy to get moving faster without realizing it. Please, with children and many walkers in the neighborhood and for the safety of all residents and guests we ask that everyone pay attention to all posted speeds. You can also help by reminding contractors and delivery personal to slow down if you see them exceeding the speed limit.
All owners are required to pump their septic tank once every two years in order to protect our community system. If your home is scheduled for pumping in 2019, you will soon receive an email from Andrew Knight at Foxfire with further details. Note that Andrew will coordinate the work to help reduce cost to each individual owner.
Andrew Knight was able to get pricing of $1.759 for propane through Energy North. If you are already an Energy North customer, you do not need to contact Energy North to receive this price unless you are on budget plan. You should check your first invoice in the Fall to ensure you are getting this Fells price.
