Improvements Coming To Brentwood Hills
By Nicole Schoen
Brentwood Hills residents can expect to see some changes coming to completion soon. The improvements include a new tot’s playground, updated monuments at each of the community entrances, resurfacing of the pool, as well as replacing and upgrading pool equipment including new lights around the pool and complete refurbishing of both restrooms.
Enforcement Of Covenants
McNeil Management and the Brentwood Hills Homeowners Association would like to remind residents the Board of Directors is firmly committed to ensuring all covenants are complied with. The management company sends inspectors around periodically to check residents’ compliance and if a violation is noted, the homeowner will receive a letter from McNeil stating the offense and asking for compliance in fixing the deficiency. If the homeowner does not correct the issue, management will pursue additional action up to and possibly including legal enforcement, but if there are extenuating circumstances the homeowner is welcome to present its case to the board for discussion and possible remedy.
All homeowners in Hillsborough County have recently received new trash cans to assist with the county’s new automated collection service. Brentwood Hills would like to remind its residents that their trash cans must remain out of sight in accordance with its covenants. Ideally, cans should be stored inside garages but if the size presents a problem, they can be left on the side of homes concealed behind bushes or a privacy fence as long as they are not visible from the street.
Starting Wednesday, January 15 residents have the option to swap out for a smaller-sized trash can if desired. Residents who would like to exchange their roll carts for a smaller size can contact Waste Management between Wednesday, January 15 and Saturday, March 15 at 621-3053. Any downsizes in cans after that period will be charged a $30 fee.
Trash collection days are Tuesdays and Fridays and recycling is collected on Friday. Recycling no longer needs to be sorted; everything can be thrown into the same bin. Cans should be placed at the curb no earlier than 6 p.m. the night before trash day at least three feet apart from each other and from mailboxes, cars, plants, fire hydrants and poles.
