Fishing in Eagle Springs

Fishing in Eagle Springs

In Eagle Springs we have a lot of opinions on fishing in the lakes or ponds. The water that is surrounded by homes is on private property. The other two bodies of water are posted “No Fishing and No Swimming.” As you may have noticed we have two fountains down right now for expensive repairs. Both pump failures were caused by fishing line sucked in and wrapped around the rotating mechanisms.

I just wanted you to be aware of where part of our budget goes for repairs that could be avoided.

Cameras

Eagle Springs Gate Cameras

There has been some discussion about the Gate Cameras at Eagle Springs on unofficial websites. So I will provide some factual information about the cameras and the recent additions at Autumn Trace and Jamestown.

Our gate cameras record license plate numbers and a partial view of vehicles that go through the entrances to our Eagle Springs Communities. Until recently Jamestown and autumn Trace did not have cameras. The BOD approved purchase and installation over a year ago for those communities. Unfortunately for the last year and a half it has been very slow and hard to obtain equipment which resulted in a delay in the installations. Autumn Trace was delayed more because of the complexity of the electrical hook ups. Had to be tunneled under the wall and located in a different position than was originally planned.

The information on these cameras is no accessed unless we have criminal activity or vandalism in our communities. Then it is helpful information for law enforcement to track down and deal with the people involved. We can look for specific times and vehicles that coincide with the criminal activity. And these cameras have resulted in arrests of people.

They also assist in payments for damages to the gates when they are damaged by vehicles. WE have had two cases recently of gate damage. One resulted in over $ 9,000 in damages that is in court for recovery. The other resulted in over $ 6,000 in damages. The individual is known and has arrest warrant issued so that repair cost will be recovered also.

Eagle Springs is not monitoring your movements or keeping data on you. There is a limited look back time and then info is recorded over. We do believe it is a great addition to crime prevention in our communities and a benefit to all of us. The camera operations are a very small portion of our annual budget.

If you have specific questions we can address them for you.

2022 EAGLE SPRINGS BOARD OF DIRECTORS ELECTIONS

The Board of Directors of the Eagle Springs Association, Inc. is writing to communicate the process for the annual election of Directors to the Board and to update you on the upcoming annual meeting.

The 2022 election process is based on the 2008 By-Laws. The 2008 By-Laws are the 1999 original By-Laws with two additions. Please see the Association’s website to download and review copies of such governing documents.

After a review of the Association’s governing documents, the Association’s new legal counsel, Nowack Howard, advised the Board that the 2016 amendments to the By-Laws were not validly passed and are therefore unenforceable because there was not a sufficient number of votes in favor of the amendment as required under Article IV, Section 4.06 of the 1999 original By-Laws. The 2016 amendments were presented and voted on based on legal advice at the time. In light of NowackHoward’s advice, the Board intends to move forward and use the 1999 original By-Laws, as amended by the 2008 amendment (“Current By-Laws”), as the governing By-Laws of the Association. Specifically, the Board intends to govern the upcoming election of the Board pursuant to the Current By-Laws. The board of directors’ election timeline is tentatively as follows:

Pool Operations for Summer 2021

Great news! Georgia's COVID restrictions on pools have been lifted so our pool rules are back to normal! This includes 6 guests, slide open on weekends and holidays, and rafts and toys allowed. Opening day is on May 15th 2021 and we will initially be closed on Mondays for deep cleaning but this will likely be a temporary precaution. 
 
Please continue to social distance from non-cohabitating residents. Individuals with symptoms of COVID-19 are not allowed to enter (Fever, cough, sore throat, chills, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, muscle pain, or new loss of taste or smell. -CDC).

New Fiber Optic Construction

You may have noticed orange cable lines being installed. This is the main conduit for fiber optics being installed by Hargray for internet and TV service. The Tivoli Gates area in Eagle Springs will be the first area to have the services installed within the utility easements throughout the subdivisions. It will be installed later throughout Eagle Springs but no schedule is set. There is no cost to homeowners for the instatllation being done now. If a homeowner wants the service installed in their home they will pay for connection to the home from the main line as part of the service fee.

Eagle Springs HOA has no contract or control over Hargray. Their permissions were obtained through the State of Georgia then permits with the City. Any problems or concerns need to be addressed with Hargray at 1-866-531-9276. Eagle Springs welcomes any comments or suggestions our residents have as construction progresses but we have no control over the construction other than to contact Hargray also.

Tivoi Gates construction started in September 2020. Residents can expect some additional traffic and equipment along the streets. The installation will be by trenching and underground boring. Termination boxes will be in the ground, much like the water valve boxes in your yards. The flags placed in the ground are locates for buried utilites. Please do not remove them. Landscaping is to be restored to the way it was found at start of work. You might consider taking pictures of your yard before work starts.
