Snow Plowing Update

Happy Valentine’s Day

It looks like the winter weather has finally arrived bringing with it lots of snow. With that comes concerns about the snow plowing job being done by our contractor.

The snow plow vehicle does not have a boot or gate that, when dropped, may minimize berms left in the driveways. Consequently, in plowing the street there is a very good chance that as the snow is pushed down the street, the plow will leave a berm along the driveway. The City of Spokane Valley also does not have plows with boots so we would have the same problems if they were in charge of plowing our roads.

Regarding where the excess snow is left, particularly in the cul-de-sacs, the snowplow person has been trying to leave it to the side of a person’s driveway or in the front yard. If you have been parking a vehicle along the side of your driveway, we will instruct the snowplow driver to put the snow in your front yard.

To help the snowplow driver please do not park your car in the street and if it is garbage pickup day, please do not put the receptacle in the street but on the edge of your yard or in the driveway.

If you continue to have concerns about the job being done, please send your comments, pictures, etc. directly to me. As I do not have my email running 24/7, the best way is to text or call at 509-991-7639. Please identify yourself with a name and address to facilitate a quicker response.

This cold weather is hard on pets so be sure and not leave the animals outside for any great length of time.

As a reminder, dues are due at the end of this month to avoid any late fee charges. If you use a bill pay service, please remember to change the mailing address for Shelley Lake Estates HOA to 16514 E 9th Lane, Spokane Valley, WA 99037. We will be discontinuing the post office box rental soon.
