acc form & instructions - page 24-25 CLUBHOUSE RENTALS

Now that the clubhouse has undergone some renovation, maybe it is a good time to remind our residents that it is available for rental for non-profit events by Association members in good standing. The rates charged by the Association, as listed in the article on this subject later in this newsletter, are very competitive. The rates and rental conditions are also given in detail on our website www.wsmaonline. org and the Clubhouse Bookings page of the site shows its availability. Those who have considered a rental in the past but have been deterred by the deteriorated condition of the restrooms, might want to re-evaluate this option now that the restrooms have had a major upgrade. Anyone who may be interested and would like to view the facility can do so by contacting Dave Ellis at 281-347-2580, who will be please to accommodate the request.  

FEBRUARY YARD-OF-THE-MONTH

The February Yard-of-the-Month award goes to Terry and Jo Anne Nickens of 22410 Unicorns Horn. Terry transferred from Memphis in 1990 and has lived in Williamsburg Settlement ever since. He has four grown daughters and one of them was in elementary school when they transferred and so has received all of her education in Katy schools.

HOMEOWNER CONCERNS There were three (3) homeowner present for the Customer Concerns portion of the meeting. A resident asked if when the pool was re-plastered, was it brought into American Disability Act (ADA) compliance. The Board confirmed that it was. She also asked if the swim team league could measure the depth of the pool again as the league guidelines have changed allowing the depth to be measured 18 inches from the edge of the pool rather than 6 inches, as it was with the former guidelines. The team wants to check to see if the depth is sufficient to allow a return to holding home swim meets. The Board said they would be happy to meet with the league representatives and have them measure the depth. A resident was concerned about a small fire that occurred in December. The sheriff and fire departments were called but neither of the entities filed a report. The Board explained to the resident that it does not know why the report was not filed; however, the homeowner has advised Officer Paul Wilburn (who made a follow up investigation of the fire) that the incident won’t be repeated. The resident asked if such fires are legal in a residential subdivision. Officer Wilburn explained that in Harris County fires are permitted provided that they are contained and there is no fire ban in place. This resident also reported hearing a noise a few nights ago that resembled gun fire but did not see anything. One of the Board members also heard it and thought it may have been aerosol cans exploding. No one could shed further light on this occurrence. A resident who is a leading member of one of the women’s tennis leagues that use our courts asked if she could present an estimate to the Board to purchase replacement sponges for our sponge rollers. The Board confirmed that this would be fine and will review the proposal at a subsequent meeting. The resident also asked for permission to put a small locked cabinet in the ladies restroom to store various consumables, which they bring during the tennis playing seasons. The Board agreed, provided that the box is stored in the vanity cupboards and hence out of sight. The tennis leagues would also like to have a better trash can, one that can be emptied without the need to touch the lid.

PATROL SERVICE REPORT Martin Spears presented the patrol service report. He remains very pleased with the patrol service. At this point, Officer Wilburn was thanked for attending the meeting and subsequently left. FINANCIAL AND DELINQUENCY SUMMARY Dave Ellis presented the financials. As of December 31, 2011, the money in the bank totaled $507,939.46. This includes checking, savings accounts and CD’s and is the money to cover both operating expenses and the necessary reserve to fund maintenance and replacement of the Association’s capital assets. Delinquency for the month ending December 31, 2011 totaled $28,848.22. The year ended with a five percent (5%) delinquency rate. OLD BUSINESS Clubhouse Renovations Report Larry Crain and Martin Spears reported that the restroom renovations have been completed and that they are well pleased with the result. The improvements include new vanities with granite counter tops, new tiles and new light fixtures. The trim throughout the whole building has also been re-painted. The only remaining work is some clean-up of the floors and the sealing of the granite counters and tile grout which Martin will take care of. He suggested that floor mats might be placed at entry to restrooms so that people can clean their feet prior to entering. Floyd Ball thanked the committee for their hard work. Pool and Baby Pool Repair/Re-plastering Update Dave Ellis gave a final report on the pool re-plastering. The only residual problem was a leak in the baby pool but that has now been repaired so all work has been completed. Next Perimeter Fence Repair Day Larry Crain reported that the next perimeter fence repair day has been set for February 18, 2012. Larry requested an expenditure of up to $1,000 for the materials. A motion to allow $1,000 expenditure for the February 28, 2012 fence repair day was made by Walt Smith seconded by Dave Ellis and unanimously approved.

Williamsburg Settlement


The community of Berkley Park has requested that as repairs are done to the perimeter fence, all exterior gates on their side be removed. Floyd Ball asked the Board if when they are repairing that section of fence, would the Board be agreeable to him sending a letter to those residents explaining the situation and seeking their permission to remove these gates? The Board unanimously agreed. NEW BUSINESS Agreement between Williamsburg Settlement and the Ladies Tennis Leagues The Board reviewed the drafted agreement with the tennis leagues whereby at the beginning of the annual season in August 2012, non-resident league members would be required to pay an annual fee for the use of WSMA facilities. The agreement also establishes rules for the leagues’ use of these facilities. It has been learned that there is one league, which no longer has a resident on the team. The Board reviewed and discussed this issue. The drafted agreement was unanimously approved for all leagues, which do have a resident team member. The team, which no longer has a resident member, will be contacted and informed that they must rectify this situation to continue to use our courts. The Board tabled this issue until the February Board meeting at which the status of this league will be finally determined. Report on December 28, 2011 Electrical Problem and Resulting Fire Dave Ellis reported that on the evening of December 28th one of the power lines feeding the clubhouse transformers broke and fell to the ground. This caused the tennis court fence to be momentarily electrified which resulted in some damage to our electrical distribution panel beneath the transformers and some of the windscreens to be burned. All damage has now been repaired and Dave Ellis has met with the appraiser and submitted a claim, which would reimburse the Association for the cost of the repairs. CenterPoint is coordinating with Dave Ellis on making a more permanent repair on the morning of Thursday, January 19, 2012.

TEXAS LAWN CARE Larry Crain presented an estimate from Texas Lawn Care to perform some needed replacements of leaking rotors, pop up sprinklers heads for a cost of $460.10. A motion to have these repairs performed was made by Walt Smith, seconded by Martin Spears and unanimously approved.

The Board thanked the residents for coming to the open session.

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 reregister their new email addresses on the Registration page of the web site, they will no longer receive these broadcast emails. So please, when conveying a new email address to those in your address book, please 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.

RESIDENT DIRECTORY MAINTENANCE

If any resident wishes to change the information that they have previously provided for publication in the directory, they can do so by using the Residents’ Directory Entry Form accessible via the Registration page of our website www.wsmaonline.org. When the information is received, it will be updated on the database. If the resident indicates that he or she wants that information published in the directory, it will be sent out in a monthly update to all registered

March 2012

Williamsburg Settlement


residents who can use it to manually annotate their copy and it will be marked for inclusion in the next edition. A log will be maintained of all changes since the last publication, which will be emailed to any resident who requests it. This way, the directory can remain useful throughout its operational life. New residents to our subdivision are requested to use the same form to register their information for inclusion in the directory or to state their desire not to have their information included. This request is included in the “Welcome Packet” given to all new residents, as soon as PCMI is made aware of the change in ownership.

STREET LIGHT OUTAGES

To report a burned out street light, 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, the website address to do this is 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.

Veterinary Public Health LEASH LAW

Let’s all help keep our community a safe and comfortable place for all our residents by being responsible pet owners. This will not only protect anyone who may be walking or bicycling in the area, but also the pet owner who could be held legally responsible or possibly sued for failing to properly restrain their pet.

West I-10 Fire DepARTMENT

Animals that are not properly restrained pose a threat to all our residents. While you may know your pet is friendly, an animal running 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.”

Did you know that the West I-10 Fire Department is a department you can join? Members come from all walks of life and work together to serve their community. The West I-10 Fire Department is also committed to community involvement and as such would like all our citizens to know the best way to contact us. If you have an emergency, please dial 9-1-1, but if you have a question about the department or would like to inquire about a public relations event, please dial 281-675-3639 or visit our website at www.westI-10fd.org.

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 or

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.

The chamber concert begins at 7:30 PM at the church, located at 20775 Kingsland Blvd.   The Seven Last Words of Christ provides a musical setting for seven phrases spoken by Jesus Christ while he hung dying on the cross. The phrases, taken from all four Gospels, are often shared in churches during Holy Week to help Christians reflect on the meaning of Good Friday.   FBSO will accompany the choir with a smaller chamber orchestra consisting of strings and woodwinds. FBSO is under the direction of Katy resident Dr. Hector Agüero. The St. Peter’s choir is under the direction of David Galasso.   General admission tickets are $10 each in advance or at the door. To purchase tickets, visit www.fbso.org or call 281-276-9642.

CLARIFICATION OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR SUBMITTING THE REQUEST FOR HOME IMPROVEMENT FORM

Siding Products

Residents are reminded that whenever they decide to make any change to their property that requires submittal of a Request for Home Improvement form, (a copy, plus instructions for completion are included in this newsletter and on the Association’s web site), that THEY are responsible for submitting this form and obtaining the necessary approval. This is still the case if the work is to be performed by a contractor. If they have a contractor who claims they will submit the form, it is still the resident’s responsibility, prior to the commencement of any work on the improvement, to call PCMI to verify that the contractor actually did file a request and that approval has been obtained. The resident does not have permission to undertake any changes until they verify it with PCMI themselves.

Keep Kids Connected was created to help kids stay connected to family and friends while they undergo their treatment for cancer or any other life-threatening illness. The idea for the organization was created by Caitlyn Mortus who is, herself, a cancer survivor. While going through her treatments, she was given a Netbook computer from a family friend. The computer kept her in contact with her friends and helped keep her spirits up when she was in the hospital for her treatments or unable to have visitors. Her wish is that every kid battling cancer or any life-threatening illness be given a computer so they can stay connected to their family and friends while they are going through their treatments. Her wish has become our mission.
