FROM THE BOARD . . . In June, the Board of Directors established a subcommittee to study and make recommendations for removing the leaf pile at Tufton Pond and alternatives for leaf disposal. The subcommittee, chaired by Steve Carney, will present options and give recommendation(s) to the Board in November. The leaf collection program at Tufton Lake is DEFUNCT, and residents can no longer take leaves at that location. The subcommittee is studying the feasibility of a lake-wide leaf composting program, but for now, residents are urged to compost their own leaves. Furthermore, residents are reminded that SDI will accept up to five bags of leaves per household as part of the weekly trash pickup. When bagging leaves, please remember: Leaves must be bagged and tied. Place bags into the cart if there is space. Other bags should be placed at least two feet away. The cart must be present for bags to be collected so the driver can hoist the bags into the truck. Adhering to these procedures will speed up trash collection, simplify procedures for the trash company and the recycler, and keep trash collection costs low for LMOA. If interested in joining this subcommittee, contact Steve Carney at jrtolk@gmail.com. NEW VOTER CARDS BEING SENT TO VOTERS AFFECTED BY LOCAL REDISTRICTING: The Fluvanna Registrars Office and Virginia State Board of Elections will soon begin sending new voter information cards to voters whose voting district and polling place have changed due to local redistricting. When you receive your new card, destroy your old card, as it will no longer be valid. If your district and polling place have changed and you do not get your new card, call the Fluvanna Registrar at 589-3593. Voters whose district and/or polling place have not been changed will not get new cards. LAKE MONTICELLO FIREHOUSE NO LONGER A POLLING PLACE: The Fluvanna Electoral Board urges Lake Monticello voters to verify the location of their polling place prior to Election Day by 1) calling the State Board of Elections at 1-800-5529745; 2) going to the State Board of Elections website at www.sbe.virginia.gov; 3) going to the Fluvanna website at www.co.fluvanna.va.us and clicking on digital mapping under voting districts and entering their address; or 4) calling the Fluvanna Registrar at 589-3593.
