Effective November 1, 2017, the City of Calgary implemented a number of enhanced dumping restrictions for all carriers using facilities at city landfill sites.

As a result, GFL Environmental will NOT take any flattened 'cardboard' as landfill sites will not allow cardboard to be mixed with household garbage. Loads that have cardboard mixed in are charged a significant surcharge per metric ton for that load. Please, only put household garbage out, for pickup by GFL. Household garbage must be in tied plastic bags and placed in garbage can's with tight fitting lids. Our contract allows for two garbage cans per household per week. Garbage should be put out before 7:30 AM each MONDAY for pickup.

For those residents using Range Recycling for cardboard and other recyclable items the pickup day remains as WEDNESDAY, however the pick time is changed to between 8:30 and 9:30 AM. If you have not subscribed to this weekly service and would like to, please go to the Range Recycling website at www.rangerecycling.ca to subscribe or for more information.

I have been getting a number of complaints from residents lately about mail being delivered to the wrong box. I have experienced this myself in having mail delivered to my box that belonged to someone else and vice versa. I’d like to request two things to address this issue:

In the short-term, if mail is delivered to your box that is addressed to a different box, can you please do one of two things:

Deliver the mail to the house mailbox of the correct address

Write “Delivered to Incorrect Box” and insert in the new mail slot on the community boxes.
The former is the most desirable, but I understand if you aren’t able to do that.

To address this in the long-term, I ask that everyone that has experienced this problem lately to inform Canada Post. I talked to them on the phone this morning and they advised that everyone who has a concern should complete the online form. The more people that complain, the more likely it is that Canada Post will pay attention.  

Here is the link to the online complaint form.

I complained a couple of months ago, but completed one again today.

This is a reminder that our Annual General Meeting of the Priddis Greens Community Association will be held on Tuesday, June 26th at 7:00 PM in the President’s Room. Per our new Bylaws, passed at last year’s AGM, we must have at least 40% representation from all voting members in order to pass Resolutions at the meeting, so your attendance is very important. 

 Agenda for the meeting, and the Minutes to last year’s AGM held on June 27th, 2017.

 One week prior to the meeting, I will issue electronic copies of the reports that will be reviewed in Agenda Item 3: Regular Reports. I will ask that you review the reports prior to the meeting and bring your own copy if desired. Paper copies of the reports will not be provided at the meeting.


The reports in Agenda Item 4: Special Committee Reports will be verbal.


Call for Directors


The PGCA is in need of additional Directors for the upcoming term. We have numerous important and interesting initiatives planned that are in need of more hands. We meet quarterly, and can accommodate skype or facetime participation for those people who are away. During my almost 5 years on the PGCA Board, I have learned a great deal, met many of my Priddis Greens neighbours, and have appreciated the insights I have gained about our community, and in particular, about condo living! The time I’ve given on the various initiatives has been well-rewarded with the knowledge I’ve gained, people I’ve met, and the many expressions of appreciation I receive from residents. Please consider if you can give of your time and talents to help make our community a better place to live! You may contact me, Roberta Roesler at this email or 403-461-4219, for more information or to have your name put forward as a Director at the AGM. Thank you in advance for your consideration.


Finally, on the 2nd page of the Agenda, you will see a notice for an important information session for homeowners. There are a number of important topics we plan to cover and participation from every condo corporation is essential. 

Yours sincerely,
Roberta Roesler
President, PGCA
UPCOMING COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION AGM 

We require a quorum of 40% at our AGM in order for motions to be ratified. The 40% includes those present at the meeting and proxy votes. To this end, if you are not able to attend the meeting on June 26th, I ask that you complete the attached form and give your proxy vote to someone who will be at the meeting. 

The person to whom you’ve given your proxy should bring the signed form to the AGM, at which time they will be instructed on how to vote on your behalf.

 Thank you for your diligence in helping to ensure a successful 2018 AGM.


Message from Roberta:

COMMUNITY ASSOICATION BYLAWS:

As you may recall, at last year’s AGM, we asked you to vote on the acceptance of revised Bylaws for the Association. The vote exceeded 75% approval, thus the new Bylaws were accepted by the membership. They were then submitted to Society Alberta and were accepted in February 2018. The new Bylaws are now in effect. They can be found on priddisgreens.net in the Members Login page.

For those that have a New Resident’s Guide, the old Bylaws can be found in the Appendices under Tab 2 in the Guide. The attached Bylaws actually replace Schedule B only. I suggest you discard Schedule B and replace it with the attached document. 

The revised Bylaws will help the Association operate efficiently and effectively. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.


Update to Auxiliary Services document in Member's Login - under Services Co-op Section
We have had a number of enquiries asking if the Axia locator flags can be removed, especially to allow for lawn cutting. The answer is No! Even if you haven’t seen workers around for a while, if your flags are still up, they are still needed to mark something below like Gas lines, irrigation lines, etc. If they are prematurely removed, it could cause significant delays for the Axia installation, or damage could occur. The Axia crews have agreed to remove the flags once they are no longer needed. This means the lawn cutting staff will need to work around the flags. Dave Harron will work with them to determine the best solution.


So, bottom line, leave the flags in place and they will be removed by Axia contractors when they are no longer needed. Thanks to those who enquired.
