Put trash cans back after they’re emptied
I hope that your Fourth of July was wonderful; you certainly didn’t have a shortage of fireworks! I sure hope that you prepared for the fireworks with your fur babies.
The Lanark Village Boat Club had a members’ Fourth of July celebration. As usual it was a great day and if you are reading this and you are within the Lanark area, you too can join and enjoy all of the special social events the boat club has. No, You Do Not Have to Have A Boat!
Trash cans are not yard (road) art! In Lanark Village our trash is picked up Mondays (Waste Pro) and Tuesday (Waste One). It is the responsibility of the owners or renters to return the cans to their prospective homes. Not only are they ugly, but people come along and throw garbage in the cans. The bears know this, and come a calling. The picture that I have included was taken on Thursday afternoon. Keep Lanark Beautiful!
If you have a nuisance issue which you are concerned about please call Capt. Brad Segree, with the sheriff’s department at (850) 323-2780. There is a copy of the nuisance ordinances and building ordinances posted on the message board outside of Chillas Hall on Heffernan Drive.
Just in case you didn’t get to read my article last week, here are two events that are very important to our area:
Franklin County Emergency Management will be at Chillas Hall in Lanark Village on Heffernan on Thursday, July 7 from 8 to 11 a.m. They will sign up residents for Alert Franklin, issue Re-Entry Tags (if your existing tag is up-to-date you do not have to replace it) and assist with sign up for the Special Needs and Transportation Disadvantaged registries.
On Thursday, July 7, there will be a question-and-answer forum with all three candidates running for county commissioner of District 2. The forum will be held at Chillas Hall on Heffernan Drive in Lanark Village at 7 p.m. If you are in District 2, do yourself a favor and join us. There are so many issues that need to be addressed in the Lanark area and we all need to get involved. Tell your neighbors and friends.
We had a great ”Wine Down Wednesday,” hosted by the Lanark Village Association every Wednesday at Chillas Hall. Cocktails at 5 p.m. (BYOB of anything) and covered dish dinner at 6 p.m. Lots of good socializing. This event is open to all adults in the Lanark area. Come get to know us, you will like us! Thank you to all of our new friends who came.
There is a burn ban in the Lanark area until the St. James/Lanark Volunteer Fire Department is back on its feet. You must attend to all grills at all times.
BE BEAR WISE, Get Help, Report Conflicts, Know the Laws, 850-265-3676 and www.myfwc.com/bear. They are out there. Short-term renters owners, please advise your guests to secure garbage and you be sure to supply a secure place for garbage. We don’t want it spread all over Lanark. Thank you!
