It has been a while since we
have had a meeting or newsletter because of my work schedule. If anyone has
problems please e-mail me with them or page me at 698-8278. Put your number

Chris McCorkle of Palmetto Pro Landscaping is
maintaining our common areas. He is a resident of our neighborhood and is
doing a fantastic job getting everything in order. He will be upgrading
some our shrubs as we have money to do so. If you see Chris working please
stop and thank him. He is going far beyond what we have been able to pay for
in maintaining our grounds.
Evelyn is stepping down as our treasurer. I
will have a nomination for a replacement soon.
I have been getting some
calls about trash building up at the curbs of some of our residents. Please
check our web site, Lexington Countyís web site or contact me for a copy of
the Lexington County Solid Waste Rules and Regulations. These are very
clear about what will and will NOT be picked up. It also specifies how the
trash is to be left at the curb. If these rules are not followed Southland
does not have to pick it up.
Some of our street signs are
in need of help, if you see one that needs some attention please e-mail me
the location. I will forward this to the highway department. So far we
have no more information about the speed limit signs. Lt. Kerry Johnson is
our new North District Commander and Marti Faglie (Voice mail 803 785-0882)
is our new resident deputy. I will be meeting with them soon to see if we
can finally get our signs.
We need to get someone to
head up the yard of the month committee. This is a good program that needs
a good committee chairperson. Our neighborhood has some incredibly pretty
yards that we should be recognizing. If you would like to help please let
We have 136 e-mail addresses
out of a possible 484 homes. This is not bad but it could be better. I use
e-mail to send quick announcements and information because it does not cost
anything. If you would like to be on our e-mailing list send me a request
at the address at the top of the page.
Our water pipes under the
roads are ageing and beginning to leak. If you see water coming up from
under the pavement please call the City of Columbia water department at
803 733-8285. They have responded within a day or two after I have called.
If the leak is a bad one tell the operator so they can get someone there
immediately. We donít need to waste water.
The neighborhood e-mail address is
email@example.com and it is up and
working. I check this address once a week.
If you need to get a message to me please feel free to use it.
Thanks to our neighborhood volunteers for
all of their help. See you at the meeting
