News Flash!  Gate Repairs & Maintenance
 
The gates were held open following a power outage on August 27th, because the inbound gate was not operating.  The outage occurred while Russ Varney was on vacation, so he and Alan Jenkins coordinated via telephone and diagnosed the problem as being a dead battery.  Because two suppliers were unable to provide batteries without seeing ours first, and said it would take a few days turn-around time, it was decided to proceed with repairs internally after the holiday.
 
Al and Russ repaired the system on September 4th, and the following was accomplished: all operator batteries were replaced, including button batteries for the system boards; and original drive belts were replaced with ones we had in stock.  (9/5)
 
 
News Flash!  Backlit Keypad & Buttons
 
The DoorKing System was upgraded the same day with the installation of a backlit keypad and operating buttons, and outdated wiring was removed from the system.  The new wiring was incorporated into looms with existing wiring to keep them safe and organized.  
 
This was an inexpensive upgrade that will greatly improve nighttime use for folks entering gate codes or contacting residents.  This work was also done internally.  Use this link to view a photo of the enhancement. (9/5)

COUGAR SIGHTINGS
 

There have been numerous cougar sightings in our neighborhood.  It is recommended to not walk alone, keep dogs on leashes, make noise while walking, be cautious at dawn and dusk when cougars are most active, and do not feed wildlife.  

In the unlikely event of a cougar encounter, it will most likely retreat.  Always give wild animals a way to escape, maintain direct eye contact and appear as large as possible, pick up children and hold them without bending, slowly back away, never run, and fight back if necessary.

 

DRONE POLICY

Harbor View Estates does not have authority to control operation of drones in our community, which are regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration.  We are providing a link to the FAA’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems website for further information.  Complaints regarding unlawful operation of drones should be referred to the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office.

WATER & SEWER DISTRICT

The HVE Water & Sewer District is a separate entity, and is not affiliated with our HOA.  They release annual 'Consumer Quality Reports' to provide details of where our water comes from, what it contains, and how it compares to standards set by regulatory agencies.  Their latest report is available here.

The District has requested our support to mitigate operational costs by being careful what you discard in the sewer system.  An informative flyer 'What Not to Flush' is available here Flushing items other than body waste and toilet paper adds thousands of dollars to operational costs, paid for by each of us. 

Contacts: Office, 208-765-5600; George Ford, Supt., 208-964-0131; and Corrine, 208-661-7866. 

 

BOAT ASSOCIATION'S DOCK

The boat dock, located just off the Harbor View Estates community beach, is not a part of our HOA.  The boat slips and dock are owned and maintained by a separate entity, the Harbor View Boat Association.  Their membership consists of both Harbor View Estates and Stevens Point Estates property owners.  Please respect their property rights by not trespassing on the dock. 

Membership in the boat association (i.e., ownership of slip interest) may, from time to time, become available to HVE and SPE owners.  Interested parties may contact the boat association at 208-666-1930 or 208-664-9198.
