LET IT SNOW!


Dear Friends & Neighbors,

The North Edgebrook Civic Association (NECA) is an organization that serves almost 800 homes in our neighborhood. We collect money each year to pay for snowplowing on our streets and landscaping of our public areas. This is a voluntary membership open only to residents and businesses of our neighborhood, and we appreciate the support we continue to get from the community.

Membership in NECA is available to our neighbors between Caldwell and Lehigh from Welcome to North signs along Hiawatha and Ionia to the small subdivision north of Touhy connected through Meade Ave. We can offer our community services only through your support through membership. Please return the attached envelope and card with a check for $25 made out to North Edgebrook Civic Association or NECA. You may also pay through the NorthEdgebrook.org website, although this year we will ask for an additional $1.25 to cover PayPal processing fees.

Our snowplowing service remains the same this year, with rates and service unchanged. We make this effort every fall in order to supplement the City of s plowing. Our service brings trucks to our neighborhood more quickly to keep our streets passable during a snowfall. It also cleans our streets curb-to-curb once the snow has stopped. During a major snowstorm, the city remains focused on the large streets and t have time to take care of our streets sometimes until well after the snow stops. So s important to have an additional service so that we can get where we need to go when Winter does its worst.

The other service that we provide is landscaping for our common areas. These are "The Island" in the middle of McAlpin by Hiawatha and "The Triangle" at Caldwell and Estes. In an effort to cut costs, we are entertaining bids for a new contractor to maintain these common areas. If you know any landscapers who would be interested in this job, please ask them to call Erick Robertson at 773-631-7938.

There are other ways you can help out the association, too. The most important is that we are looking for a new Treasurer. This is an important board position, and we should try to fill it as soon as possible. I will be doing the job this year, and I hope to make some additional website enhancements to handle some of the bookkeeping. Hopefully this will result in this position requiring significantly less time. Please see the back of the newsletter for other opportunities to help out our neighborhood.

Finally, I would like to thank Laura Drohan for her years of service to our community. She has done a great job as treasurer, and we wish her and her family all of the best.

Erick Robertson
NECA President
