Pluris Customers; As you are aware, Pluris has filed for a rate increase with Hillsborough County, the agency responsible for regulating the water and sewer rates charged in Hillsborough County. This brief summary is provided to help customers understand the process relating to the rate case request. Pluris is seeking a rate increase to recover capital costs and expenses related to the operation and maintenance of both the water and wastewater systems. County ordinances require Pluris to provide an extensive amount of documentation justifying the requested rate increase. Considerable time is required by both Pluris and the County with approximately 8 months from the application date to the conclusion. As part of the process, the County reviews in detail the information for accuracy and reasonableness. After the County’s review of the data, the County provides an opportunity for customers to voice their comments regarding the proposed rate increases at a public hearing. Customers will be notified in advance of the date of the hearing. Pluris does not set the final rates. Based on the results of the County’s reviews and the information from the public hearing, the Board of County Commissioners will enact a Resolution establishing the final rates. If you wish to discuss further, please feel free contact me by email at jkuhns@plurisusa.com or by phone at 813.359.8326.

Pluris Hearing Rate Increase Extended Pluris hearing rate increase was extended, due to the county's consultants requesting additional time. Per county requirements, an announcement will be sent out by Pluris to every Pebble Creek homeowner.

Treasurer Report

Around the Yard

Central Florida Gardening What to Plant Bedding Plants: Summer annuals to plant now include celosia, coleus, torenia and ornamental pepper. Bulbs: Butterfly lily and gladiolus are bulbs that can be planted during the middle of summer. Herbs: While summer is too hot to start herbs from seeds, many will do well if started from small plants. Palms: Continue planting palms while the rainy season is in full swing. Support largepalms with braces for 6-8 months after planting. Nails should not be driven directly into a palm trunk.

Hillsborough County Rolling Out A New Way Of Collecting Trash In January, Hillsborough County Commissioners awarded new contracts for the collection of garbage and recyclables in the County’s service areas. The award capped a successful competitive bidding effort that will lower annual residential collection rates, introduce automation at curbside, and for the first time bring in revenues to the County from materials to be recycled. Look for much more information to come as we move through the transition. Here are some of the highlights:

New Residential Collection Districts

District 1: western area of northwest Hillsborough County, including Town ‘N Country, Westchase and the Citrus Park area - Republic Services of Florida District 2: portions of northwest and northeast Hillsborough County, including the greater Carrollwood area, Lutz, and the University of South Florida area - Waste Services of Florida District 3: northeastern Hillsborough PEBBLE CREEK NEWS / JULY 2013

County, including Thonotosassa and areas of Brandon north of State Road 60 Republic Services of Florida District 4: central Hillsborough County, including the Palm River and Progress Village areas, Brandon south of State Road 60 – Waste Management Inc. of Florida District 5: south Hillsborough County, including Apollo Beach, Ruskin, Sun City Center, Wimauma and Balm – Waste Services of Florida

Automated Collection

The contracts were awarded for “2-1-1 Automated Service,” meaning that County residential garbage customers will continue to receive twice-weekly garbage collection, once-weekly recyclables collection, and once-weekly yard waste collection. But with automated collection, residents will bring their garbage and recyclables to the curb in wheeled carts provided by the County for emptying by specially-equipped trucks. Two carts will be provided - one for household garbage, and one for recyclables.

Yard waste will continue to be collected manually in customer-provided containers.

Single-Stream Recycling

No more sorting of recyclables - all recyclables will go into the recycling cart. The cart will replace the green and blue bins which customers currently use. Also, more kinds of plastics will be accepted.

Commercial Collection

Commercial customers will be able to negotiate directly with any of the three haulers - the same way that collection is currently handled.

Letter from the PCVHOA President Dear Neighbors, The Board received a letter from a concerned homeowner, plus some verbal complaints, regarding the traffic situation on Pebble Creek Dr. Speeding, not stopping for school buses, not stopping for stop signs at the intersection of Regents Park Dr. and Pebble Creek Dr., and other moving violations concerns us for the following reasons. 1. Safety hazard for all the members of our community. 2. Safety of our children getting on and off the school bus and crossing the street. 3. Greater risk of accidents Some residents of the Pebble Creek community have total disregard for other drivers, pedestrians and our driver safety laws. I’ve called the Sherriff’s department regarding our traffic situation and they’ve agreed to have patrol cars monitoring and ticketing offenders. We hope that you will heed all speed limits, traffic signs and other laws so we won’t have to continually request assistance from the Sherriff’s department. Thank you for your cooperation.

Central Florida Gardening Calendar Palms: Continue planting palms while the rainy season is in full swing. Support large palms with braces for 6-8 months after planting. Nails should not be driven directly into a palm trunk.

What to Do

What to Plant

Bedding Plants: Summer annuals to plant now include celosia, coleus, torenia and ornamental pepper. Bulbs: Butterfly lily and gladiolus are bulbs that can be planted during the middle of summer. Herbs: While summer is too hot to start herbs from seeds, many will do well if started from small plants.

Trees: Prepare for hurricane season by checking trees for damaged or weak branches and prune if needed. Hire an ISA certified arborist. Lawns: Determine the cause of any lawn problems before taking action. If an insect is the culprit, treat only the affected area. Rule out disease or sprinkler malfunction. Solarize the vegetable garden: Use summer heat as a tool in preparing the vegetable garden for fall planting. It takes 4-6 weeks to kill weeds, disease and nematodes, so start now. Azaleas: Prune no later than mid-July to protect developing buds for next spring’s bloom. Irrigation: An inexpensive rain shut off device can save money by overriding an irrigation system when it rains. If one is already installed, check that it is operating properly. Pests on Ornamental Plants: Small white dots on the leaves of azaleas and other ornamental plants may indicate lacebugs at work. Spray forcefully with water to helpcontrol this pest. Citrus: Check citrus trees for damage to fruit or leaves and take action to minimize the effect of insects and/or disease on developing fruit or the overall health of the tree.
