Tenants,

Lawn Spraying Jay's Lawn B Green will be spraying this weekend (May 19 & 20, 2018). The plan is to spray on Saturday, with any make up work to be done on Sunday. Hopefully this will knock back the Dallis grass that is making our yards look kind of ragged and will also take care of the broadleaf weeds that are starting to show thorns. -Please keep your pets off of the grass until the green colored dye as dried. You don't want to pet to have green or blue feet and you certainly don't want it tracked into your unit. After it has dried it should be good to let your pets out on it.

WHA is a No Smoking Site Officially By way of reminder, WHA has been no smoking since February, of last year. Strict enforcement begins on August 3rd. Remember - no smoking in your unit or within 25 feet of a door or an open window. You may.smoke inside your personal vehicle, even if it is parked within 25 feet of your door, just keep the windows up.
