Website Update

Please accept our sincerest apologies, as we were in the midst of a website migration and upgrade, which did not go smoothly, while we experienced the unexpected “first snow storm” of the 2018-2019 winter season.

The update caused errors which allowed us to post to the website but not to send a notification.

Please bear with us as we make additional updates to the website over the coming months.

Community Snow Removal Update

Good Morning, Kissel Hill Commons Residents!

The Board recently approved a snow removal and landscaping contract for the Common Areas and Townhouses in our community with the RPI Company.

The snow removal contract is currently in effect and the landscaping contract begins in the Spring of 2019.

 

We believe that yesterday’s storm took everyone by surprise, particularly as evidenced by the condition of public and state routes yesterday afternoon and evening. We all expected about 3” of snow that would then melt away with the rain.

 

RPI planned on spreading salt only yesterday evening until the storm made a turn for the worse and dumped an additional two inches of snow. By the time this occurred, it was too late in the day to gather the needed crews to shovel and snow blow walks and drives.

 

It also being a new community for them to service with local roads nearly undriveable caused additional problems.

 

RPI apologizes for the delay; however, the plows are out now to clear the alleys and they are putting the hand labor together now to dispatch for drives and walks.

 

Please stay safe and warm, and enjoy your holiday season.

Good’s Disposal

Good’s Disposal, the approved waste hauler for Kissel Hill Commons, recently issued a notice to it’s customers explaining what has occurred in the recycling market  this year and the effect it has had on waste haulers and costs.

You may have already received the quarterly bill from Good’s and noticed an additional $7.00 sustainability fee. This minor fee to help offset the changes in the recycling market will be charged every quarter.

You may read detailed information on Good’s website at www.goodsdisposalservice.com.

September 2018 Lawn Treatment

On September 26, 27, & 28,  weather permitting, the landscaping crew will be spreading fertilizer and weed control on the lawn areas in the Common Area and townhouse lawns in the community.

The application is wet and reentry into the lawn should wait 4 to 6 hours after application.

Simply bring identification with you and join us at the pool to celebrate the end of the swimming season.
