Royal Harbor Updates – 12/17

It was reported to me and the police that a man was walking the neighborhood asking for money over the weekend. He told  people he was a veteran and down on his luck and was begging for cash. Although this is the season for giving and charity this type of activity is strictly forbidden in the city and should be reported to the police. You never know who is at your door and what their motives may be. We also had another incident of a “party crasher” showing up at the door that turned out very ugly. If something like this happens to you don’t hesitate,  call the police at once.

 There has been much discussion about the electrical service in our neighborhood. Our board has a committee that is now in talks with FPL on this and other issues. If you are interested in this and feel our “sporadic” service should be better you may wish to add your voice and presence to this group. Let me know and I will put you in touch with those heading this up.

We now have the time and place set for our annual meeting. It will again be at the Naples Bay Resort at their community room in the building to the East of Sandpiper (where the pools, tennis courts and exercise rooms are). It will be the evening of the 14th of January at 7:00 pm. We will hope to see you there.

 As people move in and out of the neighborhood, so do those serving on our Homeowners board of directors. At this time our nominating committee is looking at potential new members to serve as members and alternates.  If you are so inclined, please let me know and I will put your name in the hat.

I have had complaints about dog walkers not picking up and of people throwing out trash from their cars on to the roads. We think most violators live in neighboring communities and/ or are visitors.

The Christmas season is upon us and many of the homes are lighted and festive. Our neighborhood officer and daughter will be cruising through the area judging the homes for a first, second and third place winner. These awards, which are gift certificates to Home Depot, will be awarded at the annual meeting. You must be a member to be a winner.

 I and the other “alliance” members  met with the Chief of Police last week and our discussion was on crime in the city. Below is a recap of the data on this.
