Water Compliance Notification with this Bill and Newsletter….
The water testing service we used last year failed two (2) months in a row to properly test our water. Even though THEY are a “DEP Certified Lab”, WE are required to put out the notice that we failed to properly test. Your water is perfectly safe, and the tests will be run again in April. WE HAVE CHANGED TESTING LABS FOR 2014!!!
Plan for Spring
Start planning ahead to bring your property into compliance with the Property Maintenance Ordinance. Remember: No chipped or peeling paint,

Disaster Tip of the Month:
Earthquakes in Saegertown???
While it might seem far-fetched, we have experienced several small earthquakes the last
few years. The latest was an earthquake centered near Toronto on the first weekend
in February. The Niagara Falls area lies on a major fault line.
We do NOT expect to face any major quakes, but here are some tips.
If you feel an earthquake:
When shaking starts:
If you are inside:
Drop to the ground
Stay away from windows or glass
Get under something solid like a table or desk and Hold On
If nothing to get under, get to the corner of a room
If you are outside:
Head to open space away from structures
Avoid standing under power lines or street lights
Stay away from trees
If you are in a vehicle:
Stay inside the vehicle
Park away from power lines, trees or tall buildings
Never stop under an underpass
