We've seen a sharp uptick in the amount of vandalism on the property in
the last few months, and it's costing your association on average $500 a
month to deal with it. This ranges from tagging with spray paint to the
destruction of the glass in the bulletin board by the south side
mailboxes and the throwing of a rock through one of the clubhouse windows.
This is money we'd much rather be spending elsewhere on the upkeep and
improvements to the property.
The police have been notified about each incident, but they have told us
that they are reliant upon us to let them know when there are problems.
They need us to be their eyes and ears.
Please, if you see anyone who is loitering on the property or someone you
know does not belong here, call the police non-emergency number at
877-8900. If you see a crime in progress, call 911. You have the option
of remaining anonymous when you report a crime, and the police will never
tell the perpetrators who reported it.
It's better to call and have it be nothing, than to not call and have it
be something. When you call, you can tell them that you have heard that
we've been having a lot of vandalism lately and you see someone who you
think is out-of-place.
Please help us keep these repair costs under control by taking an active
interest in protecting our property by informing the police when you see
anything even remotely suspicious.
