Water account deposits

The Board has determined that all water accounts shall be subject to payment of a $250 deposit in addition to new connection fees, where applicable. The deposit replaces the estimated (projected) water charges that were previously billed quarterly in advance.

Where the projected water charges from the previous quarter exceed the $250 deposit, the excess is credited to the account. If the projected water charges were below $250, the difference is charged to the account. This difference between the projected water and $250 deposit will be reflected on the next statement as a ‘Deposit adjustment’.

Introduction of rolling garbage cans

We have invested in 100 new rolling garbage cans for placement in the common areas. For easy identification they have been labelled as Association property and should not be removed from the location where they are assigned. They are not to be found on private property as they are for the benefit of the community. We expect that this should help to reduce the spread of disease by reducing the amount of household refuse that is disturbed by stray animals. Please use appropriate garbage bags for proper disposal and close the lid securely after use.

Under no circumstances should construction debris be placed in the garbage areas. If large items that are not considered normal household refuse require removal, we recommend using the junk removal service.
