Yellow Salt Bins
Help us keep costs down by purchasing a bag of salt for your personal use.
The bins, located around Salter, are used by our contractor to treat the pathways. Several bins have been repeatedly emptied causing a significant increase in our snow removal costs. If needed residents may use a modest amount of salt for their steps and private path.
Snow removal and safety should be top of mind as winter approaches. The snow removal contractor will be removing snow from pathways, followed by parking lots and driveways. Please be mindful and if you hear the snow removal equipment, move your vehicle out the the lot temporarily until they finish and return your vehicle as soon as possible.
Please don't feed the squirrels!
We have received complaints about someone feeding shelled peanuts to some of the local squirrels. Please be aware that continuing to do so can cause the squirrels to become dependent and territorial and ultimately cause damage to property especially when they search for their cache. Reminder: squirrels should never be fed, shelled peanuts or otherwise!
As winter approaches... Some ideas from Shopper's Voice
Let’s caulk: It’s estimated that sealing those little cracks around the windows or doors can save you about of third of the energy you currently use throughout the year. That could mean big savings. But don’t just stop at windows and doors. Often overlooked are the chimney shaft, recessed lighting, ducts and the garage.
Ceiling fan spin around: If you use ceiling fans in summer, remember you need to change their direction in winter. While a counter-clockwise spin keeps your home cool when the weather is warm, a clockwise rotation pushes rising warm air down to keep you more comfortable when it’s chilly.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors -- If you have any gas appliances, you MUST now have a CO detector installed in your home. Ontario’s Fire Code has been amended to include new requirements for installation and maintenance of CO Detectors in homes with gas or fuel-burning appliances and with attached garages. Carbon monoxide alarms can be hardwired, battery-operated or plugged into the wall. See more at: http://www.oafc.on.ca/carbon-monoxide
