Water Meter 
Accessibility

The City of Villa Rica (City) has advised they are having a problem with reading of water meters within the various sections of Mirror Lake.  Mulch covering the water meters or shrubbery planted around the meters is the main concern.  Similarly, several locations have planted shrubbery to hide the visibility of fire hydrants from the street.

The message from the City is as follows:

“Ensuring that fire hydrants and water meters are in good working condition are two priorities for Villa Rica’s Public Works staff. The utility crews have to be able to easily read residential meters, and if the fire department needs to use a fire hydrant, every second counts.  So the message to residents is that if they have fire hydrants or water meters on their property, the City asks that they maintain the proper clearance.  Water meters must be clear six feet above the meter box, two feet to each side, and have “free and clear” access. This means the meter readers must be able to scan the meters using a remote truck mounted, Automated Meter Reader. If the meter box is not visible from the street, covered with shrubbery, mulch or other material, the meter has to be manually located, lid opened, read and recorded. 

Similarly fire hydrants must be visible from the street. All obstructions to a fire hydrant must be trimmed or removed, maintaining a three foot radius.  Ground clearance of hydrant ports must be 18 inches to the ground, and of course, a fire hydrant should never be repainted from its original color.”

It is Georgia law that the City adopts with respect to accessibility of utility equipment and fire hydrants located in the Right of Way.  In most cases, the Right of Way will be 12 feet, the approximate distance measured from the curb extending into your lot.  This 12 foot strip of your lot adjacent to the curb is reserved for utilities installation and access and represents the critical area for the City in this message. 

The City has prepared a very extensive list of offending lots within Mirror Lake, however we ask that all residents examine their properties and if your lot does not meet the clearance and accessibility criteria as above, please remedy the situation soonest possible.

Douglas County Mosquito Spraying Program

 

The Douglas County Department of Transportation on behalf of the Douglas County Board of Commissioners will be spraying streets in Mirror Lake Subdivision per the request of the Home Owners Association.   This is a mosquito control program only.  It is a mist that is sprayed using a fogger mounted in the back of a pickup truck (county emblem is on door) and it only kills the mosquitoes that it comes in direct contact with, the mist does drift up to ¾ of a mile so every street will not be sprayed.  They will not spray if the wind is blowing more than 10 miles per hour or it is raining as this makes the mist ineffective.    The product sprayed is an insecticide for control of adult mosquitoes, biting and non-biting midges, & blackflies.  The product is Biomist 4 + 4 and  I have attached the medical data safety sheets for this product.

 

The spraying schedule is Sunday thru Thursday evenings between 5:30pm & 10pm so as to come into contact with as many mosquitoes as possible.  We only have two sprayers for the county, so as the list of requested roads to be sprayed increases the frequency of spraying will decrease.   If for any reason someone does not want their road sprayed please notify us & their road will be removed from the list.

 

Again this is a mosquito control program and does not eliminate mosquito’s.  Beyond this program if you would like educational  information regarding mosquito management and control  you can contact the Cobb/Douglas Environmental Health office at 770-920-7311 located in the county courthouse.

Important Update!
All Residents of Mirror Lake Community Association, Inc.

On Friday, December 18, 2015, Joffe Land Companies purchased the entire Assets of DB Aster, III LLC.  By virtue of the purchase, they also become our Declarant for Mirror Lake Community Association, Inc.

What does this mean for the residents of Mirror Lake?  Nothing that will affect the homeowner.  The purchase primarily involves current vacant building lots and raw land within the subdivision.  Mirror Lake Community Association Inc., aka Mirror Lake HOA will have a new Declarant along with a new member on our Board; the purchase will not have any effect on the day to day operation of the HOA.

Street Parking Alert

The HOA is receiving complaints of street parking that is blocking access to school buses.  If a school bus can’t get through, a fire truck will certainly have a problem as well.  This means that ambulatory access is also restricted.  The Postal vehicles cannot get to the mail boxes. Garbage trucks cannot get through to access trash cans.

Please Note: Only short-term / temporary guests are authorized to park on Community streets overnight. The term “temporary” for purposes of these policies shall be a period of no longer than twenty-four (24) hours.

If the situation is not remedied, you will find that your school kids will have to board the school bus

at the end of the block you live on or at main thoroughfare closest to your home.  In some areas, this is already happening because residents refuse to park their cars off the street.

We ask for your cooperation – Please do not park your vehicles on the residential streets!

Thank You

Sheryl Brown
