Belmar Gardens Updates
Carrying charges will remain the same for 2019.
The first day of Winter is December 21, 2019. Please report any snow removal problems to the Rubinoff Company or on our website. Please do not block the areas of snow removal so the plows cannot clear the snow.
Remember to turn your outside water faucets off and remember to turn it off inside your basement also. We have had many pipes burst because shareholders did not turn the water off from the outside and the inside. If you do not know where it is or you cannot reach it, please call Rubinoff Company to help you.
Please continue calling 311 to report the pothole at the corner of Oberlin and Mingo.
Zone 5 police can be contacted at 412-665-3605 for non-emergencies. 911 can be used for anything that you need the police for right now.
Stahl Plumbing will be visiting every house to check the furnaces and change the batteries in your smoke detector. If your smoke detector is determined to be bad, Belmar will replace it, not Stahl. Also, the new smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are combinations now. Please call Rubinoff to schedule for Stahl to come to your house for inspection
Please remember, according to Belmar Gardens Rules and Regulations, anyone over 18 who moves into your unit must pass a criminal check.
The Board has appointed two new members to fill vacant positions. These two new members will be up for election at the December Annual Meeting for shareholders.
Lock your car doors!! Thieves are going around the community trying unlocked car doors and vandalizing once they are in.
Cement work is complete for this year. Cement work will be done in emergency situations and is an on-going project as weather and funding permits.
Remember, the responsibility for Belmar lies on all of us, not just the Board members. Help do your part in keeping Belmar safe and liveable!
