Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Because of the speeding and break-in concerns voiced by several residents coupled with the increased risk of crime during the holiday season, we have engaged the services of special duty officers. The additional police presence will be noticed in 3-hour a day shifts, 2 days a week, between now and January 2 at a cost of $152 per shift. Due to the weather, there won’t be much in the way of speed control over the next 2 weeks. The officers will concentrate on speed control during the month of March. They will ticket anyone who is traveling at a speed of 35 mph or higher. A representative of the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office will attend our March meeting to discuss the effectiveness of the options to control speeding and crime that are available to us and to answer questions.
Before the trustees make a commitment beyond March, we would like the input of a majority of residents. When the dues notice is mailed in January, a survey form will be included to choose whether the majority of residents want the additional police presence:
- only during the Christmas holidays and sporadically during the year up to what the current budget can accommodate.
- on a more permanent basis, which may require a dues increase in 2018.
- or do not want the special duty police presence.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
