Waterford Watch

At our Mar. 16 HOA meeting, our local police officer stopped by to say “Hello.” He was glad to see that our gate was fixed and offered some friendly advise. For our own safety he reminded us to lock our cars when on the street or in the driveway, keep the garage doors down and at the slightest irregular-ity or suspicious activity call emergency 911 or non-emergency 688-3000.

If not, speak to the volunteer resident who delivers your Aberdeen Times. If you did not attend our March meeting or have not received e-mails, please be advised that Waterford Pres., Greg Van Brunt again reminds all residents that trash should be placed in a lidded container (not a trash bag alone) and traffic rules must be observed at the STOP signs and a 20MPH speed limit adhered to.
