Update on Ike Cleanup
Posted on Dec 23rd, 2008
You may have noticed that crews have been in the Village over the past few days. Many trees fell in our drainage areas and were presenting a potential drainage problem. The crews are not only removing the fallen trees, but are also clearing out some of the underbrush. We are concentrating this clean up effort on the drainage areas at this time. The trails need attention as well as some of the parks, and we will be addressing these areas in the future. This is a costly undertaking but it is necessary. We\'ve submitted claims to our insurance carrier. To date, we haven\'t received reimbursement for any of the losses and/or damage.
Speaking of our trails, there are several areas where fires were set. We are finally getting some rain, but because of the underbrush and the fallen trees these fires present a danger to nearby houses. We want everyone to be aware of this matter. We have notified law enforcement, but until we know who is setting the fires no action can be taken. We all share ownership of the trails, so this is really your property that is being vandalized. Be our eyes and ears and contact authorities immediately if you see any suspicious activity.
