The Board wants to make members aware that before last October’s Annual Meeting the Board had increased the annual dues by 10%, however, the management company did not include that in the statement mailing that hit mailboxes last week. Goodwin & Co. has agreed to pay the cost for a 2nd mailing to correct this oversight, which is going out this week.

The non-stop rain has contributed to more septic issues for many homeowners this Spring, which has made for some unpleasant odors that can make outdoor activities unbearable.

On June 22, 2018, Goodwin Harrison Management arranged for a civil engineering firm to inspect the drainage ditches at the front of each lot within the Quail Creek Subdivision. At that time, the primary area of concern was along the East side of Pheasant Hill. Several lots had standing water issues and Goodwin Harrison volunteered to initiate the inspection at no charge to the HOA. The inspection report was emailed to the Homeowners on October 19th and discussed during the October 22nd HOA Regular Board Meeting. Although the report from SBSA included a bid for a grading and drainage plan
Utilizing the existing stop sign poles to emphasize the importance of driver respect for speed in consideration of children and pets, the Board followed through on the vote by homeowners to remove the stop signs on Pheasant Hill since so many have ignored them, which has created an unintentional safety hazard since the Sheriff cannot enforce traffic violations in Quail Creek because the streets are private, not public.

Beginning January 1, 2019 trash pickup will be on Thursdays instead of Fridays and trash bins will be swapped out with new ones. That’s because the City has changed the trash service contractor to Community Waste Disposal (CWD), the largest independently-owned solid waste and recycling company in the DFW area.

In addition to this service, CWD will collect up to four (4) cubic yards of bulk/brush weekly. The new company will also be utilizing semi-automated rear load
