Helping your Community - Food Share
Once again, Al & Mary are collecting for our local food share. You can drop off your donations at their bins (866 Western Way) and enjoy their holiday display or leave your contribution at the clubhouse. The collection bin is located just next to the conference room.
 
Useful Evacuation Packing Recommendations, Wildfire or Otherwise
The office was given a handout from a homeowner who received it from an Emergency Coastal Town Hall meeting the other day. Although the fires across the state are getting under control, "evacuation packing recommendations" in the handout would work for most instances for evacuating your homes. I have linked the pages below.
 
CTR RECYCLE AUDIT & FLYER
Starting in September County Transfer & Recycling (CTR) will start “auditing” our recycle carts in an attempt to increase the quality of the recyclables they collect.
Recycle carts with “non-recyclable materials will not be emptied that week. Individuals will have to sort their carts before the next recycle day in order for them to be emptied.
Proper recycling may increase your actual garbage and exceed your current garbage carts capacity. A larger garbage cart can be obtained, at an additional cost, by calling the office. Typically, it will be delivered the following Monday by CTR.
The cost to increase the standard cart (35 gallon) to the 65-gallon cart is currently $4.25 per month. An increase to the 90-gallon cart is currently $19.50 per month. The additional cost will be added to your quarterly statement.

Telephone Scams/Solicitations (Updated 10/30/2019)
I received an email from the city of Florence Police Department regarding a large increase of telephone scams targeting members of our community. I have attached a link below to the press release and will include it in the December Focus Newsletter. Also below you will find a link to the federal Trade Commission website. There you will find valuable information about telephone scams and how to handle them.
 
Over the last several months the office has heard from different residents regarding calls they receive from solicitors. Some appear to be legitimate others obvious scams. The office has no way of knowing what is a scam or legitimate for certain. 
 
So I have done a bit of looking online and found the following information from the Federal Trade Commission website (Click here to view FTC Info). The consumer information available here is very informative and easy to read. It outlines several different things to look for and questions to ask when you receive a call you might believe to ba a scam. The site also has a link to file a complaint online with step by step questions. There is also a number to call, 1-888-382-1222.
