In looking over our current constitution
and bylaws I believe there is a need to update them. I have posted the old
ones on the web site and I will have copies at the meeting, I need some
input from the community on changes we should make. We have a number of
standing committees that are not
operational now, that we need to decide to keep or discontinue.
We will make changes and have the new
ready for the next meeting for approval.
I believe all offices terms should be
If the current officers would like to run again that would be fine. This
way if we have a poor office holder it would be easy to replace that person
without a fight.
So with this in mind I will resign at this meeting but would like to stand
for reelection if so nominated.
Your president has done poorly with the
yard of the month. We have only had 2 homes honored during the last 5
months because of me. I ask for a volunteer to step forward to accept this
responsibility, someone who can do a better job than I have.
On a happy note we have our Neighborhood
Watch signs up at most of our entrances and the speed limit signs shouldn’t
be far behind.
Some of us are placing trash by the street
that the trash service will not pickup because of the content or size of the
materials. Please be considerate of our neighborhood and neighbors, when
you need to have items removed or have a question about what they will
remove, call the county Solid Waste dept. (803)
755-3325 or Southland Sanitation Inc. 256-7276 they will be happy to
answer any questions you may have on items for pickup. Concerning yard
trash remember the 4inch / 4 foot rule. Nothing will be picked up over 4
inch’s in diameter or 4 foot long. Southland Sanitation will NOT
pick up construction or building materials regardless of size. If
anyone has larger items you will have to make special arrangements to get it
to the collection center on Old Bush River Rd. They will accept yard
trash, garbage, appliances, batteries, used motor oil, tires, construction
or building materials, and many many other items.
See you at the meeting
