I hope this finds all of you doing well. The first item to bring to your attention is our new city contract with Ring.com. Councilman Craig Theis has done a fabulous job overseeing this. The program officially started on August 15th and will run until September 29 or until the funding limit is reached. The link to get started was previously shared on Facebook, the city website and the city block watch email. However, if for some reason you didn’t see it, please go to stregispark.net. Under the RECENT NEWS column, you will see the announcement of the Ring.com partnership dated August 8, 2019. After clicking on that article, you will see “How to Participate” about half way down. From there, simply go to the second bullet point that says residents must apply via an application and click on the link. For any questions or follow up, please feel free to email councilman Craig Theis at Craigtheis@gmail.com. Again, thank you Councilman Theis for all of your hard work with this!
Next, I wanted to let you know that some of our city roads will be repaved starting on September 16th and will completed no later than October 22nd. We made sure to plan around the annual City Wide yard sale that takes place on September 7th. In regards to the yard sale, we will be placing “No Parking” Signs out on Thursday, September 5th. Please make sure to obey the signs. Officers will be writing tickets and having cars towed accordingly. Also, not only during the garage sale, but at all times, there is to be no side-by-side parking within city limits. For example, if one person is parked on one side of the street, please do not park directly across from them on the other side of the street. That makes it very difficult for traffic flow, especially emergency vehicles.
Last but not least, the Tree Board has done a FANTASTIC JOB planting new trees and making sure everyone knows about our City-Wide Tree Maintenance Program. However, they are asking me to remind everyone that many of the new trees they have helped plant over the last couple of years are in need of pruning. Pruning instructions have been sent out in previous newsletters and can also be found at RetreeThePark.com. If you have trouble finding that link or have any further questions in general or specifically about pruning, please email Joe Hinkle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember, the City of St. Regis Park is a great place to live. Together, we will make it even better!
Brandt Davis, Mayor
