Q: Annie, with your change in role, who will be answering the questions submitted to the box at the Hospitality Desk?
Thank you for your question. This will be the last edition of Ask Annie, but have no fear. Your questions will be received in the very capable hands of Sarah Duggan, Community Relations Director. I have enjoyed researching and answering your questions and although my focus will be shifting, I look forward to the interesting topics you will bring up to Sarah. Thank you for your interest and for your questions, please keep them coming to Sarah.
Q: Do we need to recycle land line telephones and televisions?
Q: We had a day that our trash did not get picked up?
I spoke with Mike Davis, our Environmental Services Leader, and he assures me this was a random occurrence. He has spoken to our trash providers and the situation remedied. Our Environmental Services team picked up the trash in the meantime on the missed day. Regular trash pick-ups are every Monday morning, and you are encouraged to place your trash on the curbs the night before. Thanks for another great question and please keep them coming.
Q: We have a male cardinal who keeps flying off a bush next to the house and bumping up against a nearby window. The question is why is he doing that? Is he trying to attract a mate or just showing off? Or, seeing his own reflection in the glass? He goes through this routine for at least 15 minutes twice a day.
Q: How does Meadowlark Hills decide which driveways to replace?
Q: What happened to Sunday Brunch? Are we going to have one anytime soon?
