Glenmore Community Association Annual Meeting - Feb 21 at 7 PM
At our Annual Meeting on February 21 at 7PM in the Glenmore County Club Ballroom, we will elect three board members for two-year terms. Please review the packet of information you received via snail mail and vote for three of the five nominees either by mail, drop off at the gatehouse, or by attending the meeting. (Details of voting are on the ballot.)

We need a quorum (30% of homeowner ballots) to seat new Board members. Instructions for voting are in the packet. If you have not received the packet (or your dog ate it), please contact Tim Durrer and another packet will be sent. 

The board is eager for a good turn-out of GCA members at the meeting, so please mark your calendars.
Three (3) Vacancies for the GCA Board
This year we have three Board vacancies to fill at the Annual Meeting. Chuck Axten (President), Kevin Fitzpatrick (Treasurer), and Bob Smith have reached the end of their two year Board terms. There are five qualified candidates approved by the nominating committee for the three vacant Board positions: Steve Antonellis, Jim Colbaugh, John Crawford, Kevin Fitzpatrick (running again), and Susan Worden. See their resumes by clicking here.
GCA Dues Notification
Associa - Community Group, our GCA Management company, has mailed out the spring GCA dues notifications. The GCA assessments are paid in two installments of $510 each. The first installment is due on 1 March, and the second installment is due on 1 September. As a reminder, there will be no GCA assessment increase in 2019. If you have questions, contact Thelma Washington (of Associa) at 434-984-0700 ext 1 or click email here.
Progress on Geese and Vultures
Our special goose and vulture watchers report that the population of unwanted visitors on Glenmore grounds may be diminishing thanks to the snappy pyrotechnics of Frank Keplinger. We do see the big birds outside the gates, so firecrackers only scare them so much; we hope they will not migrate back into our neighborhood. Thanks for not feeding them.
Transition Time for the GCA Board of Directors
We thank Chuck Axten, Kevin Fitzpatrick (running again), and Bob Smith for their volunteer service to our community over the past two years. Thousands of hours of their time and talent were donated to the Glenmore Community Association and we are grateful. 
Transition Time for the Scottsville District Supervisor
We also thank our GCA neighbor, Rick Randolph, for his service representing our district on the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors over the past four years. He has tirelessly advocated for citizens in our area at hundreds of meetings. We wish him well and hope he will have more time to enjoy bicycling in Glenmore, among his many other interests. 
County Waste New Contract - Correction
County Waste notified the GCA President that it will increase each resident’s monthly fees to $19.33 for basic service and $2 for the recycling collection. We asked Associa, our community management company, to compare prices with other vendors capable of serving a community as large as Glenmore. Bottom line, the County Waste fees were lower.

For those who contacted County Waste regarding the erroneous $1.00 charge for paper invoices, that $1.00 fee should have been credited back to your account. If there are still residents with this fee on your statement, Shelly Vance will make the account corrections. E-mail Shelly by clicking here .

If you have general questions regarding holiday pick-up schedules or special trash pick-ups, contact Jonathan Wills at (800) 832-1332 x145

Annual discounts ... County Waste offers one free month of service to any resident who elects to pay for service on an annual basis (i.e. 13 months of service for 12 months of payment. To receive this discount, remit a full year's payment (i.e. $231.96 for house trash OR $255.96 for trash and recycling) when you receive your next invoice.
County Waste Question on Recycling
I heard a rumor that I can commingle my recyclables and household waste in the trash container, and County Waste will still separate the recyclables from my trash. So why should I pay the extra cost for the recycling container?

ANSWER: Anything that goes into the regular trash container will be serviced as trash. The only items being recycled are those materials that are placed in the recycling cart. Only those residents who use the recycling services, which means using the recycling cart provided by County Waste will be charged the recycling fee. Any materials not placed in the recycling cart will be treated as trash and disposed of as trash. Shelly Vance, County Waste
