General Manager's Message (2)
November kicks off the Holiday season with Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's all celebrated within the next 60 days. I hope all StillWaters property owners take the opportunity to spend time with family and friends during the holidays.
StillWaters Residential Association will be decorating for the Christmas holiday during the month of November. There is always a need for volunteers to help with the decorations. Please contact the SWRA office at 256-825-2990 if you are interested in helping to decorate.
The Christmas decoration committee has added several new decorations to different areas around our community. There will be more decorations at the park and Gate 34. There will be three locations in StillWaters where family Christmas pictures can be taken; the main entrance at the waterfall, Moonbrook Park, and the SWRA office. The Christmas committee hopes everyone enjoys this year's Christmas decorations.
The question and answer meeting with the General Manager held on October 15th was well attended. Because of the good participation from property owners, this meeting will be held quarterly. The next meeting will be Saturday, January 11, 2020, from 9:00 am until 10:30 am at the SWRA Community room. All property owners in good standing are encouraged to attend if you have a question about our community.
Help SWRA keep the road sides and other common areas clean and litter free. Each day SWRA employees pick up several bags full of trash that have been left on the roads, at the park, tennis courts, and pool. There are also several owners who help by picking up trash along the roads as they are on their daily walk. SWRA has special orange colored trash bags that property owners can get from the office to use for trash as they walk. Owners can leave the orange trash bags on the side of the road and SWRA will dispose of them. Walking and picking up trash is a great way to get some exercise and help keep our community beautiful. Make sure you read the article in the newsletter about the StillWaters community cleanup day on November 9th.
SWRA is still finalizing a plan to complete the necessary paving and patching of our roads. There is over $400,000 of repair work that our road engineer has suggested needs to be completed as soon as possible. We are working to combine the 2019 and 2020 road paving budget into one paving project that would be completed around the first of April in 2020. Maintaining StillWaters roads is one of the largest budget items for SWRA and our limited budget makes it difficult to have all roads repaired when it is needed. After the paving plans have been finalized, owners will be notified via this newsletter.
Now is the time to have your boat winterized before temperatures drop below freezing. Give Lee at Harbor Pointe Marina a call at 256-825-0600 and he will take care of all your boating needs.
Cooler temperatures provide excellent weather for playing golf. Make sure playing a round of golf at StillWaters Golf Club is part of your holiday plans. Golfing is a great activity for family and friends to enjoy together.
I hope everyone has a great November and an enjoyable Thanksgiving with family and friends.
Kevin Eason, General Manager
