Reminders & Highlights

The Pickle Report 
At the annual meeting in July, I presented the background for the pickle report. If you missed our meeting, the video below explains the customer service mantra, ‘Give’em the Pickle.’ We hope you enjoy Bob Farrell’s explanation and find great pickle moments when interacting with our customer service team.
Pickles this week,
We completed and submitted an application to the DRC for an owner who doesn't do email or technology; she is excited to get the work done on her new home.
We resolved the placement of a shipping container parked in the street. It wasn't supposed to be on the road at all. The owner got it moved, and the new occupant understands where to park when he moves in.
Materials stored in the side yard of one home were an obvious eyesore for the neighbor. A few reminder notices at the door prompted compliance with our covenants.
When you experience a pickle moment, please share them with us.
