RESCHEDULED: Next Board Meeting moved to Monday, May 14th

Apologies, but due to a scheduling conflict we have to move our Board meeting to next Monday, May 14th.

Our next Board of Directors meeting will take place next Monday, May 14th, at 6:30pm at the home of Kirstin Dolan at 10941 Harpers Square Ct.

All are welcome to attend to raise any issues, concerns, etc.

With a number of current directors looking to retire soon we desperately need new people to get involved now in order to learn the ropes and help carry the torch forward.

If you have even the most remote desire to represent our Cluster and help out please attend! This could be the start of your successful political career!!

Thank you,
HSC Board

High Winds – Trash Info

high winds

We are once again experiencing some high winds in our area. Please do not put any trash out tonight unless it is in a closed bin or tightly secured bag.  And please do not put out recyclables in open top bins unless you tie up the papers in bundles, securely cover the bin, or otherwise secure the recyclables. The same goes for cardboard boxes and packaging materials.

If at all possible, please wait until tomorrow morning to put your trash out. We don’t want trash, papers, and plastic bottles blowing around the neighborhood.  If items do get blown around, please pick them up in your area of the cluster.  Thank you in advance for helping to keep our cluster free of trash.

Late Payment Reminders

Some of you may have received quarterly dues late payment reminders yesterday morning even though you have set up ACH automated payments with AMV.   The reminders are automated and programmed by AMV to be sent on the 1st of the quarter if payment has not yet been received.  If the 1st falls on a weekend or holiday, your ACH automated payment will not be instituted until the next business day, prompting the late payment reminder.   We asked if this could be changed and were told that it cannot.  But you can opt out of the emailed reminders by following these steps:

  • Log into your account through www.amvirginia.com (same as you did when you set up the automatic withdrawal).
  • Click on the “User Profile” tab.
  • Then click “Email Options” and un-check the Late Payment Notification email or any other email you may be receiving that you don’t want to receive.

 

FYI: Regional Test of the Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) System on Thursday, April 5

WEA-Twitter-620x264

Your mobile phone will buzz loudly on Thursday, April 5, between 10 and 11 a.m. as the National Capital Region tests the Wireless Emergency Alerts system.

Twenty jurisdictions, including Fairfax County, will simultaneously issue a test message through the Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) system. WEA is a public safety system allowing people who use cellphones and other enabled mobile devices to receive geographically-targeted, text-like messages about threats to safety in their area.

WEA triggers a loud noise and a text message on cellphones and enabled mobile devices. This special WEA tone and vibration will both be repeated twice.

Individuals with cellphones or other enabled mobile devices in Fairfax County will receive the following message: “A test of the Fairfax County Emergency Alert System. No action required.”

High Winds Expected Friday

Extremely high winds are forecast in our area starting late Thursday night/early Friday morning into Saturday.  Please do not put any trash out tomorrow night unless it is in a closed bin or tightly secured bag.  And please do not put out recyclables in open top bins unless you tie up the papers in bundles, securely cover the bin, or otherwise secure the recyclables.  The same for cardboard boxes and packaging materials.  If at all possible, just wait until next week to put out your recyclables.  We don’t want trash, papers, and plastic bottles blowing around the neighborhood.  If items do get blown around, please pick them up in your area of the cluster.  Thank you in advance for helping to keep our cluster free of trash.
