Important Message about V-Ditch Management
We have had numerous reports of residents dumping trash and yard clippings in the v-ditches in the open space behind homes. For those who aren't aware, the v-ditches are the cement "gutters" at the bottom of the hillsides, and they serve a critical role in drainage for erosion and landslide mitigation. If the refuse and yard waste dumping continues, the HOA will need to hire a third-party to remove trash at additional expense to homeowners, and homeowners found dumping trash will be subject to fines.
Updated Phone Call/Open Garage Door Procedures
At the recommendation of the Safety & Security Committee, the Ranch Solano Board of Directors recently approved a new procedure for alerting residents when their garage doors are open between 2 and 5 a.m. In the past, residents were asked to opt-in to have Safehaven Security call them if their garage door is open during the night. Moving forward, residents will automatically receive a phone call to the phone number on record with the Kelly Company, unless they inform the Kelly Company by October 31, 2021 they would like to opt-out of this service.
This change in procedure is designed to eliminate accidental overnight open garage doors--something that the Fairfield Police Dept. identified as a theft deterrent--and designed to eliminate homeowner fines as a result of open garage doors.
If your home is occupied by a tenant, please share this information with them, so that they are aware of the new process and have the ability to opt-out, should they wish.
Phone numbers will be kept confidential to SafeHaven Security and the Kelly Company. To opt out of this service, contact the Kelly Company at 707-447-7797 or email@example.com.
