HOLIDAY TRASH PICK-UP & NO-TAG SCHEDULE FROM THE CITY
If a holiday falls during the week, trash and recycling collection takes place on the day following the holiday, and collection for the remaining days of the week also takes place one day later than usual. Friday trash is collected on Saturday during such weeks.
No-tag ("trash amnesty") weeks happen twice a year and on special occasions. During those weeks, residents can put out up to 12 bags curbside without any additional tags as long as each bag weighs less than 40 pounds. Regular trash rules apply. No hazardous waste, bulky items or leaf and brush will be collected.

At our December 8th Board member, we elected a new Board President, Debra Barry.

We want to thank Ellen Cook for her wonderful leadership for the past 8 years and excited that she will continue to be a part of the Homes Association.
LONG-TERM PARKED CARS IN OUR COMMUNITY AND STREET LIGHTS THAT ARE NOT WORKING
How many of you notice vehicles that unlicensed or expired tags parked in our streets? Or the vehicles have not moved in over a week and either are wrecked, flat tires, or just do not run?
When you notice, please call our office at 816-761-6050 with the description of the vehicle (picture preferred texted to 816-490-7184) so that we can report it to the proper authorities so that the police can ticket the vehicle or tow it.
The other issue, if you see streetlights that are not working, or flickering, please call us so that we can report it to the city so Public Works can fix them.
These are examples of two issues that can be reported to us so we can report them to proper authorities and make our neighborhoods safer without parked cars and poorly lit streets.
In addition, cars parked in the yards will be turned into the City without notification to the resident.
