Crier emails
We are making an effort to send out these informational emails around the first of every month to keep neighbors up do date on neighborhood events, and other events and information of interest. It's cheaper and better for the environment not to print and pass out fliers! But we could all probably use the exercise!

Tell your friends and neighbors to subscribe. No membership required, but of course we would like everybody to join! New neighbor? Let us know and we'll send out the welcome wagon.

Trash the Poop
Pet waste has three times more pathogens (bacteria, parasites and viruses) in it than human waste. These pathogens can cause diseases in humans and animals. The City of Columbia encourages pet owners to pick up their pet’s waste and discard it in the green garbage cart.

If bags are discarded in yard waste trash piles, the yard waste cannot be taken it to the City's compost facility. Clean yard waste is recycled into new soil so money is not spent at the landfill.
