Thank you everyone for your patience while work was being done on Alderwood and some of the culverts. Please continue to drive safely on our roads.
The cost for the roadwork on Alderwood last month was $12,000. We also paid an additional $7371 to replace two clogged and collapsed culverts on upper Alderwood and to add a retaining wall to the swamp culvert due to the side of the road eroding away.
BATA HOA Board meetings will be held the second Sunday of the month at the Timberland Library. Time of meetings has been changed to 4:30pm. All homeowners are welcome to attend.
There have been several fires in our community recently. Please ensure that you are following local laws pertaining to burning on your property and in our community.

If you have any animals on your property, please make sure they are properly contained (fenced, caged, chained, etc.) There have been several issues with loose dogs in our neighborhood. If you are walking outside on the roads or in the woods, it is a good idea to carry bear mace or wasp spray for protection. In addition to a few escaping farm animals, we also have bears, cougars and coyotes in the area.
One method of filling a pothole is to break the edges around the hole with a flat pick straight down. Rake debris from the hole. Fill the hole with the larger rock about 3" deep, and then seal it with the smaller gravel. You can use your truck tire if possible and run it over a few times to pack it down. Rake the excess to smooth out. The hole then becomes part of the road. Make sure to warm up your back a little before shoveling.

Randy came at the request of the community to answer and discuss some of the questions we have. He covered topics like the installation of a gate on Rasor Rd, paving our roads, property taxes, public utilities, and more. If you approve of the idea of Rasor Rd being paved, you are encouraged to write a letter to the county. Check out our meeting minutes for more details.
Meeting Sheriff Reed was not a disappointment. He talked of many new laws that affect the way he can go after the bad guys. He dispelled a lot of misinformation people have gotten when calling for police help. For more information please contact Monique Estes.
