Correction To January Board Meeting Minutes
I would like to point out an error in the January board meeting minutes. Under Open Discussion regarding the Grapevine Now website, Connie stated "We do pay the yearly fee for her..." referring to the annual fees to maintain this website. This statement is NOT true. I have NEVER received any money from River Ridge to maintain this website. I have been writing this site since 2003 and ALL fees have been paid by me.

In the past, there were a few property owners who made private contributions to help with some of the costs of running this website but those stopped abruptly and now I guess I know why.

Messages From Security

Packages

We've had several calls stating deliveries were attempted at around 8:00 AM or 8:30 AM from property owners that have gotten notifications. We are unsure why these notifications are going out as we've been here at the office and UPS and FedEx have not been here. We encourage you to call the provider or courier to find out why. Our only interaction with these couriers are during package drop offs. Delivery times vary. They are typically after 1:00 PM and can be right up until closing time at 4:00 PM. The most frequent time is between 2:00 PM and 3:00 PM.

Please use your 911/mailing address for packages. If you do not know your 911 address click here and enter your lot number to see your 911 address or you can call the Security Office at (434) 636-5536 and they will look it up for you.

Emergency

If able we ask that you call 911 yourself. The 911 operators ask for a lot of information regarding what the emergency is, the persons age, possible allergies, and other information we just don't have readily available for them. If you are not able to make that call we can assist you in making the call.

Give the 911 operator your 911 address not lot number. It makes finding your place easier and quicker. If you do not know the difference between your lot number and 911 physical address give the security office a call we can give you both to make sure you can inform services properly.
