Trash delay due to extremely cold weather Hello Spirit Ridge residents. We just received the following message from Haulaway: Due to the dangerously low temperatures and a wind chill of -22 degrees today, Haulaway is suspending all Tuesday services until tomorrow (Wednesday). Anything not finished today will be done Wednesday. All remaining Tuesday routes will be serviced Wednesday, Wednesday on Thursday, and so forth with all routes being finished by Saturday afternoon as originally planned with the New Year’s Holiday this week. We will work over the Holiday to accommodate all routes and keep confusion to a minimum. Have a Happy and safe New Year from CMSI Staff
The Spirit Ridge HOA does not maintain the roads and is not supposed to maintain the grass along the roadways. However a couple times a year they have budgeted to help mow the street edges. Your regular lawn maitenance should include all property up to the edges of the streets that are adjacent to your lot.
Please also note that each lot owner needs to spray twice a year for noxious weeds. If you need assistance with weed control you can call Douglas County for more information or call Dan Levine at Valley Crest 303-841-8400 if you would like to have noxious weed spraying done on your property. The Association sprays annually but without lot owners spraying their property the noxious weeds to continue to thrive. Please schedule your maintenance today.
Potholes occur when water permeates the pavement and softens the soil beneath it, creating a depression in the surface of the street. Because freeze/thaw cycles accelerate the process, many potholes surface during the winter and spring months. Please call (303) 660-7480 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to report a pothole.
During the winter months, sand is used to provide traction on snow and ice packed roads. The County deploys sweepers after snowstorms to remove sand from streets as quickly as possible. During the non-winter months, streets are swept to remove debris and construction materials. Please call (303) 660-7480 or email us at email@example.com to report a an issue.
Noxious Weed Control: Douglas County has a three-pronged approach to the control of noxious weeds. Those are the control of noxious weeds on County roadways, control on County open space and assisting property owners with weed control on private properties. For more information on noxious weed control, go to www. douglasweedcontrol.com or contact Jonathan Rife at 303.660.7480. The County provides free site visits and recommendations on herbicide products and vio control agents (insects and goats).
Roadside Mowing: The County’s rural roadside mowing program is scheduled to begin the first week of May, depending upon precipitation and growing conditions. Mowing is performed both in the spring and fall to improve sight distance at driveways and intersections, assist in controlling noxious weeds and to provide aesthetically pleasing roadways.
