The Safety and Security Committee was informed by resident tips that a young bear was seen in the community. Though bears are beautiful creatures it's not always good to have them in the community so close to our homes. Below are some guidelines on how to keep bears out of our neighborhood.
How to prevent conflicts with bears
To avoid habituating the bears in your area, follow these steps.
Make trash cans inaccessible. Bring them inside at night or buy a bear-resistant trash can or an enclosure for the container.
Enclose your compost pile. Open compost piles, especially those that include kitchen scraps, are an irresistible treat in bear country. Burying compost won't work because bears will easily find and dig it up.
Recycle wisely. If you store recyclables outside, use enclosed bins. (Persistent bears will break into even ruggedly built bins.)
Keep your barbecue grill clean and as free of drippings as possible. Move the grill away from your house when you aren't using it, and clean it regularly with ammonia or bleach.
Rethink your bird feeders. In the summer, birds can make do with naturally available foods. If you do set up feeders, install them away from your house.

A reminder about how federal holidays affect trash and recycle days. If a holiday falls on a trash pick-up day, that trash day is cancelled and service will resume the next regularly scheduled trash day. A holiday that falls within the same week but not on the trash day will not cause the trash day to be shifted. However, with recycle, if a holiday falls on a recycle day, the pick-up will be pushed back to the follow day. If the holiday falls in the week of and occurring before the recycle day, the recycle day is then pushed back one additonal day.
