There have been many instances noted lately of residents mowing their lawn and not picking up the leaves and grass clippings left in the streets. Clippings not picked up eventually wash into the storm drains and can cause them to clog.
If our sewer drains have to be cleaned out due to build up of yard waste, the HOA will have no recourse but to put that cost into a special assessment that comes out of the finances of the community, possibly leading to increases in HOA dues. The community is already paying for services and repairs to the landscape due to the extremely cold weather we had last winter (landscape replacement, repair to bust irrigation pipes), the cost of having the sewers cleaned out is a major expense we don’t want to have to also pay for.
As usual, because of Monday’s Labor Day Holiday our trash & recycling pick-up will be moved to Friday. Yard waste pickup will move to Saturday.
Have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!
Due to Monday’s holiday (Memorial Day), pick-up services will be pushed back one day: Trash and recycling pick-up will be on Friday; yard waste pick-up will be on Saturday.
Remember that due to Monday being the New Year’s holiday, trash & recycling will be picked up on Friday morning, and yard waste pick-up will be on Saturday.
Also, please remember if you are planning to throw out large objects like appliances or furniture, please call Solid Waste Operations at 352-343-3776 to find a hauling service that can pick up these types of items.

Storm debris was finally removed today by FEMA. Please note: they did not take damaged fence panels. They will come back another day to take those. If your debris pile was removed, please collect leftover leaves and small branches and bag them for collection.
And don’t forget to come by the community BBQ tomorrow at the Club House starting at 11:30 AM.
We just received confirmation that FEMA will be here tomorrow (Saturday, October 21st) to pick up yard debris. We understand the community yard sale is that day, but the HOA did not want to delay this much needed pick-up when they gave us a date.
Please do not mix construction debris (if you have any) with your yard debris! FEMA has said they will NOT take construction debris! Please keep it separate and let them remove the hurricane debris.
The gates will open tomorrow morning at 8 AM for our community garage sale.
Also on Sunday the 22nd we have our BBQ at the club house from 11:30 AM to 3:00 PM. Pleas stop by and join us!
Waste Pro was sighted in the community today picking up some of the smaller piles of debris. We are hoping this continues, but we still have some very large piles of trash.
We are going to end the call for volunteers. Some residents had tried to clean up but were running into rats in the piles. The HOA is still working to try and get everything removed faster. If you are able to put any of your yard waste in plastic bags, the HOA president is working on a way to get the bags carted away in the coming days.
