**POOL IS OPEN AND POOL REMINDERS**

Hi Neighbors,

The pool is going to remain open at this time.  We attempted to close it on Saturday so that the pool company could do additional work since 2 more people cut their feet on Friday. Unfortunately, when the pool was full of people even though there was a CLOSED sign on the door.  He did what he could on Sunday morning and hopefully all the glass is gone for good.  For now, the pool is open but please be aware of the possibility of leftover glass, so you are using the pool at your own risk.  If there is glass spotted again, we will close the pool to be completely drained.

With this being said, please understand that there are ABSOLUTELY NO GLASS ITEMS ALLOWED in the pool area. This includes goggles, swim masks, drink bottles, baby bottles, glass dishes, etc.  People are in this area bare footed, and we can not risk the chance of any more broken glass and putting our neighbors in danger.  None of us want to have the pool closed and the additional cleaning is an additional expense for the entire neighborhood. Please make smart choices AND if you see someone in the pool area with a banned item, please remind the neighbor it is not allowed and you can report it to the board at officers@oakhillsouth.net.

Guests–we have had complaints already about excessive number of guests at the pool. We love for our neighbors to have friends at the pool, but lets remember this is a private pool to be used by 147 homes, so lets be considerate about how many guests we have at the pool.  3-4 guests are no problem for normal pool use. If you want to have a birthday party, etc at the pool, please reach out to the board to get approved and we will post to our neighbors about the party so everyone will know we will have extra people at the pool. Please do try to limit party guests to 8-10. Also, anytime you bring a guest to the pool, your are responsible if they break rules or damage property.  We already have a section of the fence broken from people climbing over it.  It will be an expensive fix and hopefully the last one of the season.

Lastly, we have already had 2 instances where teenagers were in the pool after it has closed for the night. Pool hours are 10a-9pm with Adult only swim from 9p-10p. NO ONE is allowed to swim after 10p and the Lees Summit police will be called if anyone is trespassing in the pool after 10p.  If your child is caught in the pool after hours, your card will be suspended.

Hopefully this week will be the only rough week we have at the pool this summer. Lets all enjoy this pool season.

***POOL UPDATE****

Neighbors–our pool company is doing a final sweep this morning and the pool should be open around noon. They do believe they got all the glass, but please be aware that there is still a chance of little pieces being in the pool. if you see any additional glass, please email the officers at: officers@oakhillsouth.net. ALSO, a reminder, THERE IS NO GLASS ALLOWED IN THE POOL AREA!! NO GLASS GOGGLES AND NO GLASS BOTTLES.
 
One more item…we all signed pool rules this year to gain access to the pool. This is our neighborhood and if we see someone at the pool not abiding by the rules, anyone has the right to tell someone they are not following rules. if you see children at the pool unattended by an adult, please ask them to leave. If you see people throwing furniture in the pool, please ask them to leave. We have no full time management of the pool and while many people on the board are available most of the time, we may not be able to run up to the pool at any given time. If we know of rules being broken, we do have the right to suspend pool priveledges. Also, we have already caught teenagers up at the pool late at night. Parents–remind your kids that they are not allowed to swim after 9pm (9-10p is adult homeowner swim only). We can tell whose card gained access to the pool and this also will cause your pool card to be suspended.
 
Remember we enforce these rules to keep our pool maintained, our neighbors safe and our pool opened! Thanks for your support and enjoy the pool!

***URGENT–POOL CLOSED TODAY 6/1

Hi Neighbors

The pool is going to be closed all day today 6/1. Someone’s glass goggles shattered in the pool yesterday leaving shards of glass on the pool floor, including the baby pool. Olympic will be vacuuming the floor in the entire pool today and cycling through the filter to remove the glass.  If this does not work, we may have to completely drain the pool. Thank you for your patience while we get this fixed for everyone’s safety.

WCA Trash Pick up Delays

Good morning. I just called and spoke to WCA. I have personally called them twice this week about my own waste but I advised them it is a huge issue in our neighborhood and adjoining neighborhoods. they transferred me to a supervisor who has written a work order to have them all picked up by end of day tomorrow. She told me that they are down 17 drivers in the past 30 days and have brought in 5 teams from other areas to help with their backlog and that they should be caught up on yard waste pick up by 6pm Saturday, however all of OHS will be picked up by the end of the day tomorrow. I’m not confident in this but I will also call Deffenbaugh and Constable and inquire about HOA pricing. I believe if we go to HOA pricing it is paid by the HOA and has to be collected with dues, so we need to keep that in consideration that it would increase dues by $200 each year. Thanks all for your comments!
