Please note that Town Oaks trash pick-up day has been changed from Fridays to Thursdays. The change was made by our trash collection contractor due to a merger within the company.  Our plastics, metals and cardboard recycling will continue to be collected every other Friday.

Town Oaks Residents,

The following information was sent out via email to all residents. Please take note of the information.

2022 TOWN OAKS CLEAN-UP DAY
 

Once again Town Oaks Association will be sponsoring an Annual Clean-Up Day for all residents. Dumpsters will be available on Saturday, April 16th from 9:00 A.M. to 12 Noon and again this year there will be one dumpster
per lot.


The dumpsters are for larger household items which cannot be left out for the normal trash pickup, such as mattresses, tables, etc. Please try to break down larger items to help make room for more ‘stuff’. This is on a first-
come, first-served basis, and when the dumpster is filled level to the top, no more items can be left there. Do not overflow the dumpster.

 

Also, please remember that the dumpsters are strictly for non-hazardous and non-electronic items only. Please be respectful and only put in appropriate items as your Association will be charged for any prohibited items (which means all of the homeowners pay for these items to be disposed). Prohibited items include:
APPLIANCES TIRES BATTERIES PAINTS/STAINS SOLVENTS
CHEMICALS/LIQUIDS FERTILIZERS/PESTICIDES INFECTIOUS WASTES
TELEVISIONS/COMPUTER MONITORS

OIL/PAINT FILTERS/AUTOMOTIVE OIL/FLUIDS FLUORESCENT LIGHT BULBS/BALLASTS
CARPET/LINOLEUM CREOSOTE TREATED WOOD

Thank you for your cooperation in helping to make this Clean-Up Day a success!

Parking Rules Reminder
Town Oaks Homeowner,

 

Since only 24 homes at Town Oaks have a garage, it is critically important that Parking Rules be adopted
and enforced so that the remaining 88 homeowners have an equal opportunity to the use of the parking
lots. Your Board has spent much time over the years crafting and revising the Parking Rules and attached
is the most recent revision. For the most part the revisions consist of previous policies approved by the
Board but which were not incorporated into the Rules and Regulations document itself.


Your Board believes that at this point there are no further Rules changes that can be made that will
improve the parking situation at Town Oaks. However, that still leaves room for improvement but those
improvements will come from a more active enforcement program. Your Board would prefer to rely on
voluntary compliance and believes that the large majority of their neighbors at Town Oaks do want to
comply with the Association’s Rules but simply need an occasional reminder; after all, the Parking Rules
is one of the largest and most detailed sections of the Rules and Regulations.

 

Please pay particular attention to Section 07.03, which contains most of the revisions. The most common
violation is the requirement that all vehicles parked in the Parking Lots must display a valid Parking
Permit assigned to that vehicle. On a recent survey less than half the vehicles were in compliance.
However, effective enforcement of the Parking Rules is impossible without Parking Permits. Please be
advised that as of March 1st periodic surveys of the Parking Lots will be made and any vehicles parked in
the Lots without a valid Permit are subject to the penalties described in the Enforcement section of the
Rules and Regulations. That can mean fines as much as $200 per violation, and unpaid fines are a lien
against the unit. To obtain a Parking Permit, contact service@omega-mgt.comor call 763-449-9100.
A source of much frustration for residents who diligently move their vehicles onto the street so the
parking lots can be plowed completely is when the vehicle in an adjacent space isn’t moved and their
space then gets missed. Please review Rule 07.11 carefully to be sure that you understand the protocol.
We know it’s sometimes difficult to know exactly when the snow has reached a depth that merits plowing
and/or when the plows will come, but if you’re in doubt, move your vehicle out!

 

Again, enforcement of the Parking Permit requirement begins on March 1st so if you don’t have valid
permits for your one or two vehicles, you need to apply for the Permit(s) early enough for it to be mailed
to you and affixed to the windshield of your vehicle(s) before March 1st, or find another place to park.

 

With everyone’s cooperation, parking at Town Oaks can become a more convenient and fair experience
for all. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Parking Rules, please contact me at
dstendal@omega-mgt.com.

Town Oaks Residents,

 

As the crew is working through the property on the drainage project they will be placing sod down. The crew will intermittently use the hoses onsite to water the sod.  The crews may also need to plug their equipment into the outlets outside of your garage. The electrical use is minimal and allows them to complete work without noisy and polluting generators. Please allow the crews access to your water and electrical as needed. 


We have received several questions on the drainage project and we thought we would share the responses with the community:

1. Some of the downspouts are directed into new drains which are very close to the basement wall. Isn't this going to cause a problem with water being so close to the wall?

Answer: The catch basins are design to collect the water to move it through to the drain tile and out of the pop up. You should have no issues with it's location.

2. What happens if the drains get clogged?

Answer: All catch basins have a removable lid to extract any debris that may filter through the lid grilles. The pop ups also can be removed, if needed.

If you have any other questions in regards to this project please email service@omega-mgt.com

Dear Town Oaks Homeowner:


I regret to inform you that I am leaving Omega Property Management effective August 13, 2021. I have
enjoyed working with the Board and homeowners of Town Oaks and wish you continued success.
Effective August 13th, we will be transitioning day to day management responsibilities to Dave Stendal, who
will also be working with an assistant who is yet to be determined. As many of you know, Dave managed
Town Oaks from 2008 to 2013, so he is quite familiar with your property. Carol Crosby will continue to be the
Property Services Coordinator for your community.

 

As a reminder, we ask that Homeowners call 763.449.9100 or email service@omega-mgt.com as your starting
point for routine financial questions (e.g., did my payment post, what is my balance, etc.); administrative (I
need a Resale Disclosure Certificate, my address changed, etc.); and maintenance issues (a sprinkler head
broke, I want to report a problem with my driveway, etc.).

 

Below is a recap of the team assisting your community:
Omega Management’s Service Center 763.449.9100 service@omega-mgt.com
Dave Stendal Association Manager
Carol Crosby Property Services Coordinator

 

A little about Dave: As founder of Omega Property Management, David’s vision, entrepreneurial spirit, and
good old-fashioned Midwestern grit transformed a small, independent operation into one of Minnesota’s
premiere HOA management companies. With over 40 years of experience in association management, David
is still active as a public speaker and consultant, providing valuable insights and advice on how to achieve
success in today’s rapidly changing industry. His philosophy is simple, yet effective – focus on the long-term
goals of the association and always have a plan for the future.

 

I know Dave will be a terrific addition to the team which serves Town Oaks and Omega looks forward to
continuing to provide excellent service to your community.

 

Very truly yours,

Jim Rosvold, CMCA, AMS, PCAM
