River Island East Home Owners Association Mar 2017

As a child I assumed that when I reached adulthood, I would have grown-up thoughts. (David Sedaris) 

THE BEE HIVE (BoD) reappoints each year which one of them will fill which role on the Board. Not surprisingly, nobody wanted to learn a new protocol so….. Prez = Michael Mahoney; Veep = Kathy Slechta; $$$ = Oma Mansfield; Secretary = Joan Huffaker; Hod Carrier = Mervin James. And speaking of totin’ hod, please thank Mervin next time you see him for his labor to fill in the potholes at the main gate. I was starting to get whiplash every time we went through there.

WASTE MANAGEMENT schedules: Many of us admit we’ve killed way too many brain cells in this life time and therefore suffer from CRS (can’t remember stuff). Here are WM and Del Oro schedules that you can post on the fridge while your brain cells are taking a nap.

WM: Regular trash pickup — every week on Fridays.
Recycle and Green Waste — every other week.
Next Recycle and Green Waste pick up is Friday, 3/31 and every other Friday thereafter, unless a holiday moves it one day further.

DEL ORO: is allowing watering 3 days a week.
Even House Numbers… Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday
Odd House Numbers… Wednesday, Friday & Sunday
Roberto Silva is setting your sprinklers accordingly so you don’t have to tax your tired brain any more. Whew! That’s a relief!

We’ve received a request from River Island Country Club to find ways to integrate the 2 associations in a more relevant manner. We are more than a group of people who happen to live near a golf course. Mervin James has agreed to be “our man in Panama” and work as a liaison between RIEHOA and RICC. Hopefully out of this cooperation we will have access to information regarding types and costs of differing membership options, special events, and anything else we can think up once we shake the cobwebs loose. And while I’m on the subject of the golf course and memberships, I’d like to remind all y’all, – that’s Texas talk (available thru Rosetta Stone) – to mean everybody, that we are not supposed to take our private golf carts on the golf course unless you’re an equity member. You can drive your personal carts from home to the clubhouse, but not on the course, not even on the cart path. Got it? One more thing, don’t be messin’ with The Gates please. If you want the gate to be left open for an event at your house, ask somebody on the Board and they will program the gate computer to allow for your event. Not a problem. If individuals are out there messin’ with the gate mechanics, it could void our warranty and cause liability issues. Thanks 

Next BoD meeting 2PM, Tues April 11, 2017 @ 32462 River Island Ln
