We would like to thank Gus Holmelin for doing such a fantastic job on the roads. Gus took a week of his vacation to come to Sargent and work on the roads. In that week he put down close to 800 tons of limestone. He covered almost all of Marlin, a good part of Hall and some of the side streets. If you see Gus on the street stop and let him know how much you appreciate it.

We added 4 new Board Of Directors, James Sarbeck, Sally Morse, Chris Rankin, & James Farrar. We want to thank Mrs Sarbeck for finding officers & directors insurance for DCCCLOA.

March 31, 2012

Board member, Bill Pendergraft resigned from the board on Saturday March 31st. Bill sold his property in Downeys and is no longer eligible to serve. We will miss him and want him to know that we appreciate his time and input as a board member. A replacement will be appointed at the next board meeting. Ten additional streetlights have been added within the DCCCLOA subdivision. Most are new lights, placed at intersections and areas that were unlit, such as Neptune and in the Marlin area. There were also some lights that existed but were not working and not on the DCCCLOA billing, such as the second bridge on Carancahua. That area is now lit and, hopefully, much safer. There will be six (6) positions up for election at the annual August meeting. The election committee will soon be seeking people to run for the board. More details coming soon. The mosquito spraying seems to be helping. Board members have received calls from some residents expressing their appreciation for the spray. Again, DCCCLOA board members wish to remind you that the monthly meetings are held the last Saturday of each month at 6:00 PM at the Library. Everyone is welcome to attend. The next meeting is April 28, 2012

Street lights- they are sending us a list of where all the lights we own are located.
We talked about the internet tower being put on our property & decided that at this time we shouldn’t do this.

August 19, 2011
Hello, Everyone - Been a long time, hasn't it?  Hope you are all watching the paper for news and/or making plans to attend some of our monthly meetings.  They are held the last Saturday of each month at 6 p.m. at the Downey's office.  Although the office is closed, someone is usually there on that afternoon, if you have questions about your bill, etc.


Just wanted to let you all know that a member recently received a letter, appearing to be on Downey's letterhead and being sent by me.  No signature, just my name.  Won't go into details, but the letter was a little rude.  The ONLY mail that Downey's has sent out is the 2010 billing (mailed in March) and the 2011 billing (mailed in July & accompanied by the ballot & newsletter).  If any of you receive a letter from Downey's board or myself, please contact me at this e-mail address.   I need to know when someone sends out mail in my name!


Remember, our meetings are open to all members - would like to see some of you at the next meeting.

Thanks to all of you for your support.
