Dear Heathrow Homeowners:
Information on Storm debris:
We have received many calls about fallen trees or debris on your property that came from another property. The rule in Florida is that, once the tree falls (or invades your air space) onto your property, it is your responsibility. The insurance companies operate under this rule as well. These types of claims are considered Acts of Mother Nature and you should contact your insurance company if you have damage to your property, regardless of the source.
Only place storm debris on your lot (curb area). To dump or place in any other area is illegal.
It will take some time to clean up the debris caused by Irma, so please pay special attention on the streets while driving.
Yard debris in bags will be picked up on your regular scheduled yard day. Special Seminole County Contractors will start hurricane debris pickup on Monday. This will be for lose tree branches and limbs not in bags. These should be stacked neatly on the curb of YOUR property and NOT in the Street. For more detailed information please go to www.seminolecountyfl.gov/irma
Please be patient while we all work together to clean up the Community
REVISED: Very Important Heathrow Update
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) has a new bear feeding rule as of August 6, 2015.
For detailed information on this new ruling please visit their website at http://www.myfwc.com
FWC now has the capability to fine residents for “unintentional bear feeding” (i.e. leaving garbage out overnight).
“Placing food or garbage, allowing the placement of food or garbage, or offering food or garbage that attracts bears and is likely to create or creates a nuisance is prohibited after receiving prior written notification from the Commission.”
The new penalty system starts with a civil penalty of $100, and then gradually increases in severity.
Per the Heathrow Master Association Policy dated 12/14/2014, trash and garbage shall not be placed outside earlier than 5:00 am on collection day unless the garbage is placed in a Certified Bear Proof Container.
For an extensive list of Certified Bear Proof Containers, please go the http://www.heathrowcommunity.com, under documents, then go to Master Docs, then go to Heathrow Bear Proof Garbage Containers.
FWC has permission to drive the Heathrow streets at times earlier than 5:00 am, specifically in areas that bears are known to be on garbage collection days. Residents leaving garbage out overnight or prior to 5:00 am could be in violation of this new FWC ruling.
We apologize for not giving more information in the previous email.
Please govern yourself accordingly,
The Heathrow Master Association
