Tropical Storm Nicole Update #2

Hello everyone,

Nicole is on the same basic path though it has drifted a bit further north. Since the storm is passing over us on Thursday I have been trying to reach Waste Pro about our pick-up that day (been on hold for 25 minutes already). I am sure they will cancel services that day but I am trying to find out if they will move our service to Friday or blow us off completely like they did for Ian and we won’t get anything until Thursday of next week.

When I get their response I will post again. I would not put out your cans unless we get confirmation they will be here on storm day (again, I feel this is unlikely).

For more information on the Storm, please see the latest NOAA posting.

Waste Pro Fails to Pick-Up Again

Sorry everyone,

Waste Pro said they would make it this week for yard waste. I called Friday afternoon and was told they are picking up as fast as they can, and they might still show up on Saturday (which they didn’t). I will not post anymore updates that are released by Waste Pro about this yard waste pick-up as their info can’t be relied on. If I can get information from Lake County when the hauling service they hired will be in our area I will post then.

A set of keys on a Lexus keychain were found at the mailboxes by a resident. If you lost a set of keys please email me [ ] and I will put you in touch with the resident.

Yard Waste Update

Yard waste was not picked up this week. Lake County has hired outside haulers to start removing yard waste in the county as the regular services are overwhelmed with the amount of debris. Here is the link to the story on Lake County’s web site:

I have emailed them and I will post here with any new information.

If you have a way to haul away your debris (truck or trailer) you can take it to the Log House Road Facility on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Please have your driver’s license with you as they will verify you are a Lake County residents. Please see our web page or the Lake County site for waste drop-off for more info on where this site is located or to answer other questions.

Thank you.

School Supply Tax Free Week Starts Tomorrow & More

Hello everyone,

Florida’s Tax Free week for school supplies starts tomorrow, July 25th, and runs through August 7th. Please view the PDF document below for complete details, including a list of all items included.


Happy shopping!

We want to remind home owners that when cutting your grass please do not sweep or blow your leaves & clippings into the storm drains. Grass and leaves will clump together and eventually block the pipes and we will have to call a service to clean them out with the cost coming out of our HOA budget. This can lead to higher HOA dues.

Thank you!

A Note From the HOA Board About July 4th Weekend

Our HOA Board would like to remind all residents to please be careful when using fireworks this weekend:

  • Set them off in your driveway only; do not use sidewalks or the street
  • Supervise children; do not let them set off fireworks without adult supervision present
  • Please clean up when you are done and have a bucket or water or a hose ready in case of an emergency
  • Please be considerate of your neighbors. We ask that all fireworks usage be done by 10 PM.

Remember that Monday is the July 4th holiday so our garbage, recycling, and yard waste pick-ups will be pushed back one day.

Thank you and please have a safe July 4th weekend.
