Backyard Party, September 10

Fountains friends,

Join your Fountains neighbors for a backyard party this Saturday, September 10, from 5:30 to dusk at the homes of Dave and Zona Mitchell, (4651 SW Olympia Pl) and Skip and Donna Paulic, (4647 SW Olympia Pl., next to the roundabout on Estates Dr.).

For those of you that have not been to one of the Fountains’ lawn parties, it is a very informal gathering of neighbors.  Bring your own lawn chairs, a beverage of choice, and a sweet or savory snack to share.  Water and iced tea as well as plates and napkins will be provided

It is forecasted to be pleasant temperatures so come out and visit with your neighbors!  In the event of rain, the event will be cancelled.

We look forward to seeing you Saturday!  

Mitchells and Paulics

Sad news re Kevin Neuer

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Our sincerest condolences to Sharon and her family.  May her memories bring her peace and be a blessing to all who knew and loved him.

Kevin Neuer Feb 3, 1950-Sept 4, 2022

Kevin passed away this morning at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.  He loved living in the Fountains and serving as your treasurer on the first resident HOA board and subsequent boards, including as president. 

He had been a recipient of 2 organ transplants and countless skin donations, so it was important to him that at least his corneas are able to be shared.  Mayo Clinic will also be the recipient of pertinent organ transplant tissue for research.  We haven’t determined about services in KC.  Cremation in Rochester MN. 

Irrigation Update

UPDATE FOR RESIDENTS OF IRRIGATION REPAIR

A1 Hydro, our irrigation contractor, completed repairs shortly after noon today, 8/18/2022. A1 will return later today, after glue has cured, to turn on the water to affected part of system. The area affected by this outage should see irrigation cycle restart at midnight. For the resident’s information, the total cost of this repair was: $2000 for the removal and replacement of the 2 sidewalk sections, and almost $1300 for the repair of irrigation break.

Contractor for lawn services/snow removal

Fellow neighbors

As you may know, our current mowing, weed and feed, and snow removal contracts end on December 31, 2022.  A new contract for at least snow removal must be in place before December 31st to avoid a break in the services provided to you.  Your Board of Directors is seeking your input in identifying potential contractors who can:

2. Do a Spring and Fall debris clean-up of the same areas.
3. Weed and feed the same areas with up to 5 treatments annually.
4. Remove more than 2 inches of snow from 176 driveways and front porches/steps

If you know of a contractor who would be interested in providing any or all of the above services, please forward the company name and contact information to Sandy Turner at Area Real Estate (arearealestate@hotmail.com) no later than September 1, 2022.  Your input is greatly appreciated as we are all in this together.

Irrigation Repair

From the Fountains Board of Directors
Update on the irrigation repair

As of today, August 11th a contractor has been located to remove and replace two sections of City of Lees Summit sidewalk so that A1 Hydro can make repairs. The sidewalk sections will be removed by this Saturday. Then A1 will start repairs on Tuesday the 16th. He anticipates completing repairs no later than Wednesday the 17th, barring any unforeseen problems. The sidewalk will be replaced as soon as possible when repairs are completed.

The Board would like everyone to know since Friday the 5th we have been trying to locate a concrete contractor. Until late yesterday evening most contractors were telling us, “We can do this in 2 to 3 months”.

The Board would like to thank the residents affected by this situation for their understanding.

Roof Repair Salesman

We had a ROOF REPAIR salesman in the neighborhood, Tuesday 8-9-22. He could not answer my questions about the HOA and instructions for putting on a new roof. Before you commit to roof repairs or replacement, please get instructions and a new roof application from a FARB member. Raintree is keeping a close watch on all construction in The Fountains. Both RLPOA and the Fountains need to approve a roof replacement!

Roundabout Project Update

From the Fountains of Raintree Lake Homeowners Association Board

On Monday, June 20th the contractors completed their work on the Roundabout Project and will remove their equipment on Tuesday. Our next step is to power wash  the sidewalk circle, walkway and the streets to ensure all surfaces are clean. 

In the middle of the roundabout is a pad for a large fountain if approved. There is also water and electricity close to the pad to support a fountain.

The work reduced homeowner liability and eliminated repair costs and maintenance costs. Thank you for your support.
