Unauthorized Pool and Vandalism
Posted on Aug 10th, 2020 Comments (0)
POOL VANDALISM
 
On two occasions in the past week we have had an act of vandalism committed to the fob gate entry system and unauthorized access to the pool after-hours.
 
Thursday, August 6
 
Someone attempted to remove the Fob Reader from the front gate at the pool. They tried to pull the unit from the post near the gate. They were unsuccessful however did damage the reader resulting in a service call. A reminder that these types of incidents are considered vandalism and the perpetrators face prosecution and fines. Service calls are also an unbudgeted expense to our HOA member funded operating budget.
 
Saturday, August 8
 
Seven middle school age boys gained entry to the pool after-hours. A reminder that the pool closes at 9 p.m. Violators are subject to HOA fines, loss of family pool privileges or trespassing charges if not an HOA resident. The HOA Board was forced to install cameras and to improve security due to ongoing acts of illegal entry and vandalism to the pool after-hours.
 
An HOA member has received a warning letter regarding the unauthorized entry by the young men.

Recommendations For Reopening Johnson County Schools
Posted on Jul 29th, 2020 Comments (0)
 
The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment is releasing public health recommendations for K-12 schools to help families and school districts make decisions about the reopening of schools in Johnson County.
 
These recommendations are a result of a collaboration between JCDHE and school districts in the county. The recommendations document outlines recommendations for learning modes, based on COVID-19 transmission in the community.
 
“It is important that we all protect the health and well-being of our students, teachers, school staff and families by carefully considering all risks and benefits of reopening schools,” states Dr. Sanmi Areola, JCDHE director. “These guidelines are a starting point for school administrators and parents/caregivers to make decisions on what is best for their school community and individual family.”
 
County and district leaders have agreed to meet again the week of Aug. 17, to review data and make final decisions about the learning mode to begin the 2020-2021 school year. The next several weeks are critical for all community members to work together to decrease the spread of the virus.
 
The guidelines include what types of learning modes and extra-curricular activities are recommended, based on the current knowledge and data about COVID-19. As new evidence emerges, requirements may change. JCDHE and school districts will work closely together to monitor community and school conditions and make amendments if necessary.
 
In the last 14 days, newly reported cases in Johnson County have leveled off, as has the percent of all tests that are positive, which is currently 8.8% (yellow category). However, community transmission indicated by the average daily number of cases is still high. We need to continue to wear masks, avoid crowded events, stay home when sick and wash hands frequently.
 
The two measures that make up the gating criteria are updated daily.

Emerald Ash Borer Alert
Posted on Jul 22nd, 2020 Comments (0)
A Message from the City of Lenexa:

As you drive through Lenexa this summer, you may notice an exceptional number of dead or dying trees – ash trees infected by the emerald ash borer (EAB). If there are ash trees in your neighborhood, please encourage your residents and board to take action to deal with the effects of EAB. 
 
-Make sure residents in your neighborhood know that if they have an ash tree on their property infested by EAB, they must either have the tree treated or removed. Without treatment, EAB will kill the tree. Property owners are responsible for removing dead or dying trees, including those along the street. 

-If there are multiple ash trees that need removed in your neighborhood, getting group bids for removal services is a great idea for your HOA to pursue. You’ll likely get better pricing for homeowners, minimize disruptions during the removal process and efficiently improve the appearance and safety of your streetscape. We recommend you hire an insured contractor with certified arborists on staff. 
 
Bristol Ridge and Bristol Valley HOA has negotiated a price with Messengers last year to remove Ash trees. If you are interested this year, please let us know and we will work out a similar agreement

-Trees are vital to maintaining the natural beauty of Lenexa’s neighborhoods. We encourage you to replace any ash trees you remove, and our street tree replacement program offers a 50% refund on the cost of replacing an ash tree (up to $200 per property). Here is some more information on that: https://www.lenexa.com/news/archived_news/street_tree_fund_helps_replace_ash_trees
 

If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about EAB, how to identify ash trees and what your options for removal or treatment are, visit: https://www.lenexa.com/government/departments___divisions/parks___recreation/trees/emerald_ash_borer
