A list of directors, offices and tasks were
provided in the August newsletter. Months
earlier a monthly list of agenda topics were
provided. As I write this note in August
with all the heat and humidity that our area is
suffering, I can't wait for October, hopefully
cooler, when this note actually appears. As I
wilt despite the air conditioning, October
reminds that the first Tuesday our community
celebrates Neighborhood Night Out.
Champion Forest Fund HOA will certainly
publicize the fun event for all, but just as
reminder the PUD will be there as a sponsor.
We do this to support the other fine
organizations who contribute that night plus
this gives us an opportunity to answer any
questions about our services. As you know,
we seem to have new neighbors every day.
Generally, most questions involve water quality
and price, Cypress Forest Park, and sewer.
Rarely do we receive any questions about our
other 4th charter service, which is drainage.
Additionally, we receive questions about
household waste and recycling, and I'm happy to
say that Royal, our waste contractor, is
normally present to offer their help.
So besides our 4 state charter services of
water distribution, sewer, drainage and
recreation (the park) you see the PUD engages in
other functions. Besides NNO and waste,
listed above, the PUD helps pay for the water
that the various HOAs utilize to keep the grass
green and the trees alive. Our reasoning
is the physical landscape adds to our homes'
values. We contribute a small amount to
Brill to teach 4th graders about water
conservation. Even though not all students
are our residents, its a good deal for us
because the PUD receives credits from North
Harris Regional Water Authority that eventually
and easily returns our investment besides the
educational benefits. The PUD
manages the admin building and offers the
facility free to residents, who can abide by the
restrictions. Organizations from scouts
both boys and girls, charities, Klein clubs,
Champion Forest groups, such as Neighborhood
Watch, Civic, Garden Club for storage, and
Investment Club, and of course the HOAs, all
have engaged it from time to time.
Finally, the PUD pays for the majority of the
street light electricity bills of the
HOAs. Again, our reasoning is home values,
keep it lit, keep it safe, which allows HOAs
flexibility with their tight budgets for
Hopefully, this note will help answer, why
are some PUD meetings so long. Your PUD spends
time on our charter services each month plus we
listen to HOAs and how we can work together to
improve our neighborhood. We value their
ideas and your tax dollars.
Join us for NNO and be cool!
