Estimated "Neighborhood Watch" Patrols per week
Attendees: CCSO Deputy Bill Miller, Jim Deeble, Donna Elliot, David Smith, Joan Hulet, & Rich Hulet
The GPCIA member information sheets were given to the CCSO for their files/information. We discussed the boat in the lake, Dep. Miller was going to check their records and get back to us. We thought the situation may solve itself--We think he has a dock to put the boat.
We need to keep up our summer patrols and various times. Our population has dwindled, but theft is increasing. Bicycles, AC units, any motors (AC and pool), outboards, and as we know scrap iron of all types...Theft is also occuring on docks--fishing poles, motors, etc. some at night, by boat. If you see this, please call 911 and if possible get a description of the boat or registration numbers. The marine unit is stretched very thin.
We discussed monthly meetings, we all felt bi-monthly was ok at this time. We are to have another meeting in August at the Beach Complex or Cultural Center. Dept. Miller and Dale Phillips, NW Co-ordinator are trying to get rooms at no cost! We'll know at a later date. I will forward to all when I know!
We then discussed parking & speeding cars. Dept. Miller explained to us that the CCSO are cracking down on parking in a driveway, blocking the sidewalk. It was in the next day's Sun Herald this was happening. The violation carries a warning ticket or a fine of $118. We also discussed speed limit/children playing signs--even speed bumps. Dept. Miller explained that signage/speed bumps is not the best possible remedy--costly and time consuming. If you see parking violations, chronic speeders: call the non-emergency number 639-0013 Even better is to go to web page www.ccso.org On their Web Page you can click on section "crime reports tips online". You may do this anonymously or leave your name and information. He feels that if a number of the same complaints about a suspect comes to the tip line, the reponse will be better. We'll get this on the GPCIA Web page for everyone.
I also have an "Important Numbers" sheet for NW members. Dept. Miller only left one, I'll make copies and get it to the members. Meeting ended at 7:57 PM.
