BOARD OF DIRECTORS: Our three-year contract with Allied Waste Services expires December 31, 2006. The Board has collected bids for the next three years, and Allied was chosen to continue service with a slight increase in cost beginning January 1, 2007 until December 31, 2009. Service will remain the same as it is now. There will continue to be the option on an individual basis for year round re-cycling pick-up and yard waste pick-up from April 1 to November 30. The optional services will be billed directly to the homeowners who choose the additional services. Further information will be provided along with your annual statement in December.


TRASH CONTAINERS: Section 12 in our Covenants deals with this subject and states: "No garbage or trash shall be placed or kept on any property within Quail Creek except in covered containers of a standard type approved by the Association. ...in no event shall such containers be maintained so as to be visible from Neighboring Property except to make the same available for collection, and then only for the shortest time reasonably necessary to effect such collection. All trash containers are to be kept out of sight from neighboring properties and the street unless it is a collection day."


HOSPITALITY: A big Welcome to our new neighbors: Gary, Sherry, Ashley, and Dalton Demster, 4478 Quail Creek, phone 881-4184. Gary is a manager at Lowe's and Sherry is a homemaker. Also, 4624 Parkhill is the new home of Loretta Sakshaug, phone 368-5419. Loretta was previously a resident of California.


FLOWERBED: Despite our hot summer and cut back on watering our flowerbeds are looking great! The committee volunteers cleaned, trimmed, and weeded all beds in the common areas after the last board meeting. Mums were planted in the bed across Quail Creek Avenue and in the bed by the pool gate on September 11. A work day will be scheduled and spring bulbs will be planted in late October. Fall is the time to divide and replant daylilies, peonies, iris, and poppies and plant trees. Now is also a great time to aerator yards and plant new seed. Neighbors recently reported six deer one evening in their back yard.


GROUNDS: This is a busy time of year for our industrious dedicated Grounds Committee. After a close look at the pavilion, the roof and chimney" brickwork were found to be damaged and badly in need of repair. Bids were obtained, and the Board of Directors has chosen the recipients. A big thank you goes to QC resident John Harp, of Acme Brick, for furnishing the materials for the brick repair. The tennis courts have received a new coat of paint due to the fact that the preceding paint job was not satisfactory .The bridge and benches will soon get anew coat of stain. Because of the rain and cooler weather, the sprinklers have been cut back.


POOL: Bryant Prude has announced that the pool cleanup day will be Sunday, October 8, from 2:00- 4:00 o'clock. Come and join in all the fun! The next meeting of the Board of Directors will be October 25 at 7 :00 p.m. at the home of Howard and Pattie Bannerman.
