Numbers Worth Knowing

How Will The WHCA Work for You?

Many of you are wondering just what the association will do for the subdivision. Well, one reason is to instill a community relationship. We need to know our neighbors. Our property values need to stay up.

There have been concerns voiced about some common issues. Here are just a few of the BIG ones:

These are just a sample of the items the association will handle.

Homeowner Convenants

Many homeowners have stated they did not receive a copy of the covenants when they purchased their home. For your copy, become a member of the WHCA. The annual dues are $30.00 (made out to WHCA) and payable at the next annual meeting.

Yard of the Month

We will start sponsoring a Yard of the Month in May or June 1998. Yards are judged after the first weekend of the month (weather pending). The winning yard must have at least one blooming plant, cannot have won the previous year, and civic association dues must be current.

Nice Looking Neighborhood

To keep our neighborhood looking nice, the board is requesting that all yard clippings be put out on Wednesday mornings only. If you have yard debris before Wednesday, please store it behind your house or in a place that cannot be seen from the street.

Lead Alert

Are you aware of a new law that went into effect on December 6, 1996? If you're buying, selling, or renting an older home, built 1978 or before, it affects you. It is called the Residential Lead-Based Hazard Reduction Act for residential homeowners. Also known as Title X, this federal law requires any owner or agent who sells or rents out a home or apartment built before 1978 to disclose any known presence of lead-base paint and provide a federally approved lead-hazard info pamphlet to the buyers or tenants.

Sample disclosure forms and the "Protect Your Family from Lead in Your Home" pamphlet are available free from the National Lead Information Clearinghouse at (800) 424-LEAD.

Check Your Chimney

Is it time to check your chimney? Well, it depends on how much use it gets; whether it serves a fireplace or heat stove; metal or masonry; and the type of fuel you burn. But even if it is used less frequently, it should be inspected every year. Having an annual inspection will reduce the risk of fire or carbon monoxide poisoning. In addition to recommending the annual inspection, which typically costs less than $100, the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) offers homeowners these general tips:

Home Remedy

Keeping wall-to-wall carpeting and area rugs clean is an ongoing battle, especially if you have young children. Here are 3 tips provided by a reader in Florida:

  1. Ordinary glass cleaner removes most stubborn stains from all types of carpeting. Spray the stained area liberally and allow it to soak in for 5-10 minutes, then blot the area with a paper towel. If necessary, repeat the treatment. For extra-tough stains, use a small scrap piece of carpeting as a brush to scrub the area.

  2. Ink stains. Spray the spot with hair spray. Let it dry, then brush and vacuum the area clean. Old, dried-up ink stains might require 2 or 3 passes.

  3. Static electricity a problem? Pour 5 parts water and 1 part liquid fabric softener into an empty pump-stray bottle. Apply a light mist of the solution onto the carpet as you back out of the room. Try not to miss any areas, and pay special attention to the frequently walked paths through the room. Wait about 5 minutes before returning. Static is far less frequent. Spray again as needed.
