2013 POOL TAG WRAP-UP

For those interested in such things, this year we gave out 1,522 pool tags to 325 families, which means that 43% of our residents signed up to use our pool. This is slightly fewer than 2012, which was an unusually heavy year when we gave out 1,686 pool tags to 344 families. But these usage numbers still show that the pool is a major attraction to a large number of our families as well as, we believe, being a major selling point to potential home buyers as they consider moving into our subdivision.

OCTOBER YARD-OF-THE-MONTH

The Yard-of-The-Month for October goes to Gary and Pam Koenig of 22215 Joshua Kendell. Gary and Pam have lived in Williamsburg Settlement since 1986. They have 3 grown children Stacey, Amanda and Steven and 2 beautiful granddaughters. One of the many things they love about living in the Settlement, is the quietness of the neighborhood. Their large corner lot is perfectly manicured. A beautiful flagstone walk leads to the front door. The front flower beds have a border of rounded Boxwoods with an assortment of Roses, Azaleas and Variegated Ginger. The large island flower bed has a Liriope border filled with Knockout Roses, Society Garlic and other flowering plants. The Koenig’s side yard is beautifully landscaped, as well, with an inviting  park bench surrounded by mountain Laurel, Bird of Paradise, Azaleas, Photinias  and Spider Plants. Thank you Gary and Pam for contributing so much beauty to Williamsburg Settlement.

2014 BUDGET - MAINTENANCE FEE TO REMAIN AT CURRENT LEVEL

to first review all of the previous year’s costs and the anticipated changes that are expected to occur in each cost category for the coming year and then to project the income required to meet these expenses. In addition, the Board has a fiscal responsibility to set aside some money each year for the capital reserve account which is required to fund major future expenses that cannot be reasonably included in a single year’s operating budget. The table below gives the amount forecasted in each income and cost category followed by a pie chart illustrating pictorially how the maintenance fees are spent. This data together with that for the previous four years, is also shown in the Budget section of the Association website www.WSMAonline.org, where you can review it at any time. As a result of our increased efforts to collect on delinquent accounts, we have projected a reduction in this category for 2014 and used this projected saving primarily to fund increases in the cost of our insurance coverage and maintenance of some aging items in our recreational area. This has allowed us once again to produce a balanced budget while maintaining the maintenance assessment at the previous year’s rate of $700 per home without compromising our contributions to the fence repair fund and reserve allocation. The Board is committed to careful management of expenditures and continued emphasis on collecting the funds that are owed to the Association by homeowners who are delinquent on their accounts.

At its September 17th meeting, your Board of Directors developed the budget for 2014. As in years past, the approach taken was

OLD BUSINESS RATIFY DECISIONS MADE BY E-MAIL PRIOR TO MEETING 1) Tennis Court Nets and Waste Bins - purchased for a total of $615.23. These have now been installed. 2) Approved Houston Recreation Management contract for two (2) additional weekends in September for a cost of $765.92. This was done in response to an email survey conducted to assess the level of resident support for keeping the pool open on weekends during September as was requested by some homeowners who attended the August meeting. SAND IN POOL FILTERS Dave Ellis reported the sand in the filters has now been changed and has resulted in a significant improvement in the quality of the pool water. BRUTON PARK - MONUMENT The Board reported that the damaged monument has been repaired to community standards and the Board is satisfied with the work. NEW BUSINESS VANDALISM TO TENNIS COURT LOCK The video camera did capture images of some children in and around the tennis court when the damage to the lock occurred. This incident began when the gate had been left propped open by tennis players on the previous day. Should this type of incident happen again, the Board may seek restitution for the damage from those responsible, who may be identified by the publication of images from the camera system. The Board briefly discussed the issue that egress from the tennis courts requires the use of a key. This has always been the case, but some concern has been raised as to whether this arrangement could be viewed as a safety issue. There are a number of difficulties in changing this arrangement however. Dave Ellis will continue to investigate the practicality of alternatives such that a key would no longer be required to exit the courts.

He is now planning on installing a sprinkler system in his yard and would like to also have a line run under the road to the island so that a sprinkler system could be installed on it also. If this is done he would continue to pay for the water usage. However, he invited the Association to contribute to the cost of installation. The total cost to bore under the street and install the line is estimated to be $1,000. A motion to contribute $500 to this installation provided that the homeowner will continue to pay the water bill was made by Michael Wood, seconded by Walter Smith and unanimously approved. ADJOURNMENT TO EXECUTIVE SESSION At 6:15 PM, the Board adjourned to executive session to discuss delinquencies and deed restriction matters. DECISIONS MADE DURING EXECUTIVE SESSION DELINQUENCY The Board reviewed the delinquency report. At the present time, no additional accounts need to be sent to the Association attorney. DEED RESTRICTIONS The Board reviewed the deed restriction list from the inspections performed September 5, 2013. It was unanimously agreed not to send any new accounts to the Attorney this month. PCMI was instructed to continue to send reminder letters. With no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 6:35 PM. The next meeting will be October 15, 2013.

NEXT WSMA BOARD MEETING

The next meeting of the WSMA Board of Directors will be held in the clubhouse on Hoyt Lane, at 5:30 PM, on Tuesday, November 19, 2013. If you wish to be placed on the agenda, please contact PCMI at 281-870-0585 at least three days prior to the meeting.

UPDATE OF EMAIL ADDRESSES

This is just a reminder that the email addresses to which emails from the WSMA Webmaster are broadcast are those that have been registered on the www.WSMAonline.org website by the residents themselves. This email distribution list is used to disseminate important announcements to Settlement residents. However, email addresses do tend to be rather dynamic as residents change their ISP for a variety of reasons and when they do so, unless they re-register their new email addresses on the Registration page of the website, they will no longer receive these broadcast emails. So please, when conveying a new email address to those in your address book, also update our mailing list by removing your old email address and replacing it with your new one. This will ensure that you continue to receive the timely announcements on important Settlement activities. And for those who have not yet registered, you are strongly urged to do so as this is the best mechanism we have to quickly communicate with our residents. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

STREET LIGHT OUTAGES

To report a burned out streetlight, any resident may call CenterPoint directly at 713-207-2222. However, for those with Internet access, you may also make this report on-line. For those interested, you can go to http://cnp.centerpointenergy.com/outage. Then enter your contact details so that they can get back to you if more information is required. On the following page enter the details of the light(s) with the problem. Just as you would if reporting the outage via the telephone, you will need to provide the street address where the light is located and the 6-digit number that is prominently displayed on the front of the pole. Under normal circumstances the crew will be out to fix the problem within 7 working days. Anyone noticing a streetlight that is out or has some other malfunction is encouraged to report the problem to CenterPoint via either of these two methods without delay. Our Association is charged for every streetlight each month, irrespective of whether or not the light is functioning. So please help us get value for your hard earned money!

REMINDER ABOUT HOUSE PAINTING

Residents need to be sure and pay attention to the state of the paint on their houses. Many of the houses in the settlement are of an age that they will soon need to be repainted or sided. Please be proactive in getting this done when necessary. Doing this before you have a problem will not only keep your house looking nicer, but doing it early can end up saving you money! But please remember that all such work does require Architectural Review Committee approval. This is obtained by completing a “Request For Home Improvement Approval” form and mailing it to PCMI. A blank copy of this form is included in this newsletter and is also available on the Board Notices and Forms page our website at WSMAonline.org.

at someone who is walking by is very scary for that person. Many children are afraid of animals and become frightened, which could result in the child getting hurt trying to avoid the animal. Veterinary Public Health (formerly called Harris County Animal Control) advises that “All dogs and cats must be kept under restraint while in the unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas. The custodian of a dog or cat is not authorized to have, harbor or keep any unlicensed dog or cat or to allow any dog or cat to become a stray.”

Restraint is defined as the control of a dog or cat under the following circumstances: 1. When it is controlled by a line or leash not more then six (6) feet in length, if the line or leash is held by a human being who is capable of controlling or governing the dog or cat in question. 2. When it is within a fully enclosed vehicle. 3. When it is on the premise of the custodian and the animal does not have access to sidewalk to street. While it may be nice to have your animal out in the yard while you work or play, it is against the law, unless the animal is properly restrained.

• Brown patch will continue to plague St. Augustine lawns as nights get cooler and humidity and rain continue. Discolored circles will appear in low areas almost overnight. Apply a fungicide recommended for brown patch according to label directions. Avoid walking through brown-patched turf. It spreads easily from the bottom of your shoes. If brown patch appears in the same lawn areas every year, add an inch or two of sandy topsoil to eliminate those low spots. • Fertilize St. Augustine turf with a winterizing formula to promote root growth over the winter months. Lower your lawn mover blades now and mow on a schedule that cuts no more than one-third of the grass blade away. • As chrysanthemums and other perennials finish blooming, cut flowering stalks to the ground to permit all strength to be used in making root growth. • Feed roses lightly, but avoid nitrogen fertilizers. Do not prune now. Keep up spraying program and water deeply. • Remove dead foliage and plant debris to help eradicate insects and disease organisms. Thin out and transfer volunteer seedlings.

Cut banana stalks back to six feet, wrap with newspaper and burlap. • Continue mulching for winter. Build up a thick top mulch to protect roots from freezing and winter drying. Don’t throw away those pine tree needles; they make great acidic mulch for azaleas, gardenias and next Spring’s impatiens. • Place pansies in beds after weather has cooled. Use a little blood meat mixed in soil under each plant. • Now is the best time to plant trees and shrubs.

During the August Board work study meeting, the Katy ISD Board of Trustees accepted a bond referendum recommendation by the Student Activity Facilities (SAF) Bond Committee and called for a Nov. 5th Bond election. It is projected that there will be no tax rate increase from the current rate of $.40 with the $99 million authorization. The authorization of the bond referendum by voters would fund the building of three new Student Activity Facilities:

Agricultural Sciences Center - $25 million The District has outgrown the current L.D. Robinson Pavilion and room for growth or expanded instructional opportunities is limited. Developing an Agricultural Sciences Center at the current Gerald D. Young facility on Katy-Hockley Road will address student safety and convenience; reduce animal safety risk caused by travel; address the negative impact on Katy HS and Leonard Merrell Center operations and allow for strategic investment in a long-term solution. STEM Project Center - $4.5 million The STEM Project Center will provide additional classroom and project space for students engaged in science, technology, engineering and mathematics courses and activities. It will provide increased space for students to conduct large-scale experiments such as robotics and would lend itself to a variety of engineering projects such as boats, catapults and chip manufacturing. Physics teachers would also have the ability to video a large-scale demonstration at the S.T.E.M. Center while students are viewing from their classroom. 14,000 Seat Stadium - $69.5 million A second stadium will address scheduling issues that will become increasingly difficult as future high schools are opened. Six Katy ISD high schools currently participate in varsity football, soccer and marching contests at Rhodes Stadium. With the opening of Tompkins High School, Katy ISD will schedule seven varsity football teams into Rhodes Stadium beginning in August of 2014. Scheduling seven schools in Rhodes Stadium will create a challenge for the District to comply with the U.I.L. 5-day rule.

KATY ISD NEW WEBSITE HOMEPAGE LAUNCHED

Katy ISD is proud to announce the launch of its new website homepage and the gradual transition of department and campus websites over the course of the fall semester. The new homepage is the culmination of a yearlong initiative to gather feedback and direction from parents, staff and other Katy stakeholders about how the District’s website could better serve our community’s needs. What emerged is a clean design, consistent and improved navigation, an upgrade to the technology that supports the site and quick acess to our most frequently visited District-wide webpages. Department pages and campus websites will be transitioned to the new homepage format during the fall semester. In the meantime, some department pages and all campus websites will be temporarily linked to the older version of the District’s website. Some examples of pages in which visitors will experience redirects to the old website are the Transportation, Teaching & Learning and Special Education pages. We greatly appreciate your patience as we continue to improve upon the website to make it a better experience for all who visit it. Wishing you a successful school year, Katy ISD Technology Department.

Theater/Fine Arts CARNIVAL ROUND THE CENTRAL FIGURE by Diana Amsterdam. Regional Premier - November 7-23, 2013. A wild ride through theatrical terrain that sears the senses and impacts the audience at a visceral place, which also manages to be hilariously funny and heartbreakingly real in the five core scenes of a young woman’s visit to the death bed of her friend. Her moment of acknowledgment and comfort comes hard in the face of denial, moralizing, insane positive thinking, desperate chit chat and the existential fears we all harbor about the end moments of life - the great mystery.   MUSEUM OF DYSFUNCTION IV - December 6-14, 2013. Short plays from 200 writers who submitted from all over the US and were chosen by a panel. Co-produced by Wordsmyth Theatre. ROME by John Harvey - World Premier - March 6-22, 2014. This original script is being written by local playwright, John Harvey, work shopped by designers, musicians and actors, video documented over a year and presented as a collaborative effort as our final play in the season. Located at Studio 101 at Spring Street Studios, 1824 Spring Street, Houston, TX 77007. All performances begin at 8 PM. Price - $18 regular/ $10 students and seniors. Pay as you can on Mondays and $25 for opening night with a party immediately after the show. More info/reservations: www.mildredsumbrella.com - info@ mildredsumbrella.com or 832-463-0409.

PLANTING THE RIGHT TREE IN THE RIGHT PLACE

CenterPoint Energy understands that the responsible planting of trees is a way to care for our environment and beautify our community, yet we are also committed to the safe and reliable delivery of electricity. Our professional tree pruning program is integrated into our daily operations to help make this possible. Trees that grow close to CenterPoint Energy’s electrical poles and lines will be pruned by a professional tree trimming company under contract with CenterPoint Energy. Any vegetation greater than 10 feet in height will be removed from high-voltage transmission line rights-of-way. Palm trees growing near power lines create unique issues. Unlike other trees, palms grow in a straight, vertical line, with a single growing point at the top of the tree. Because of this single-growth point, normal pruning techniques are not effective. With most trees, crews are able to direct the growth away from power lines using proper pruning techniques, but growth of palm trees cannot be redirected. If you choose to include palm trees in your landscape, CenterPoint Energy recommends a planting distance of 20 - 40 feet to reduce the risk of windblown fronds contacting power lines. Consumers should plant palm trees far enough away from power lines that no part of the tree ever grows within 10 feet of the line. CenterPoint Energy encourages you to plant the “Right Tree in the Right Place” by thinking about the mature height of a tree and its distance from power lines before planting. For more information on safe planting practices and a list of power line-friendly trees, visit CenterPointEnergy.com/trees.
