In an effort to lessen the ever rising costs of communicating with our community, the Creekwood Ranches Board of Directors has approved the transition of routine communications (Newsletter, lost animals, etc.) in the neighborhood to electronic means (email and/or Association web site). If you have not already provided an email address to the Board, please contact the Association Secretary at kruselj@yahoo.com to ensure you receive community information. If you prefer to not directly receive information and rely on the web site, please contact the Secretary so your name is removed from the email list. In the future, your email address will not be shared or released to anyone outside the Association Board. Should you or anyone you know in the neighborhood have special needs prohibiting receipt of electronic notification please contact the Secretary so special arrangements can be made to ensure receipt of information distributed. Please contact any Board member or your Unit Representative with any questions or concerns.

February 20, 2020 Roadway Dumping News From The President

I received a call from one of the Creekwood Ranches Property Owners Association(CRPOA) members informing me of this white powder on the road way from Summer Meadows east of the park back down Creekwood Pass to the entrance. I investigated following it from the entrance to east of the park on Summer Meadows in an attempt to figure out who had dumped the material. Both starting at the entrance and where it began on Summer Meadows I found small piles of the material. Calling Comal County Road Maintenance(CCRM) I was told that the white powder was lime. Lime apparently is used in foundations. At this point I believed that there were no suspects in this dumping on a public road, but was told by CCRM that in fact there was a witness to the offense. Apparently one of our property owners observed the dumping. It is an criminal offence to dump waste, building material, etc. on public road ways and on private property. Secondly, it is also a civil offence. Apparently the Sherriff’s Department is involved as well as Comal County Road Maintenance, an environment agency, the Fire Department and God knows how many other government agencies.  

Now, this is going to take time to work through all this mess. CCRM has partly cleaned up some of the lime from Summer Meadow down Creekwood Pass before Mountain Forest. I will be following this situation contacting the Sherriff’s Department, CCRM, any environment agencies, etc. that are involved. As I understand it there is one or two police reports on the offence. It usually takes seven to ten day before the police reports are available to the public. As I already said this is a criminal and civil offence. Time will tell if the Sherriff’s Department files charges and the District Attorney for Comal feels there is sufficient evidence to make a case. On the civil side CCRM should be pursuing civil litigation to recover losses for their loss of man hours, equipment and materials used in the clean-up. Any other agencies which have suffered loss of man power, equipment and material use should also be pursuing civil recourse.

If any property owners feel they have suffered property loss to vehicles, etc. collect photos of the damage, keep receipts, ask for written statements in regards to the lime damage from the repair provider. For these damages class action law suits are the standard.

As usual, Creekwood Ranches Property Owners Association has your back.

William(Bill) F. Banfield III, President
