Happy Friday everyone!
Sunshine and smiles are all the rage these days – hope you are keeping in the seasonal fashion =)
A couple of important topics for a week’s end and hope you all find something fun and enjoyable!
It’s that time of year, again so don’t forget to move those clocks ahead before you go to bed on Saturday!
We need your help with proper puppy etiquette in community living …
We are noticing more and more wet spots from the four-legged furry friends in areas that should not be – especially at the rear entrances of both James and Kilmer. Please make sure you are taking your dogs to the appropriate places to do their business as the entrances to our buildings are not to be used in this manner. The rules for dogs, on this topic, are clear and with solid reasons – no one wants to drag additional… stuff, for lack of a better word, into their homes; it’s just not nice or right.
We know that from time-to-time, pets can have accidents, however, the practices of some pet owners are really what we are looking to adjust. If your dog has an accident, please let the door staff know and we can have maintenance hose down the area – if you haven’t done so already (I see some pro-owners carrying a bottle of water to wash away mishaps – good job!).
For those that consciously allow pets to have restroom breaks at the entrances or other common areas of the Association, we will be forced to send you a note and there could be financial ramifications to go along with the letter.
Lets all work together on this easily avoidable situation.
This week, thanks to Amy Lemar, the President of Old Town’s Wintrust Bank, we had the opportunity to meet with our CAPS crew from the Chicago Police Department. We talked about safety and security for our JK residents as well as the Sandburg Village community and surrounding areas.
They are all committed to tackling the tough job of keeping our residents safe and want to partner with the community, working on our common goal. The fine men and women of the CPD will continue to keep communications open with us and encourage everyone to reach out if you have any concerns – the “See something? Say something.” mantra is our best defense against the bad guys, and our role on the team is to dial 911… they emphasized this practice and assured us that is why they are here, and nothing is a bother – even if you are unsure!
Want to know more? Try checking out an 18th Dist. CAPS meeting – they are terrific at providing details of neighborhood news as well as more tips on how to keep safe.
Thanks for helping keep our fellow residents safe!
