Auto-Pay Service
Homeowners can pay association assessments by credit card (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, or Discover) ($14.95 processing fee applies), or by electronic check from your checking account. To reduce costs to the Association, homeowners should sign up for ACH (Automated Clearing House) payments through Ghertner & Company. This will eliminate the need to provide homeowners with payment coupons. Click here to view more information on auto-pay options.

If you prefer not to be visited by a solicitor, then simply add your home to Metro's "No Knock" list. It can be found HERE. Each residential address will remain on the list until the address expires 365 days from the date it is submitted. After 365 days, the owner or lawful occupant must re-submit the address to the Metropolitan Clerk's Website in order to be placed back on the no solicitation list.

If anyone in the neighborhood wants to have something picked up by the Sheriff's Office, they should call 880-3897 between 6:00 AM and 2:00 PM, Monday-Friday. They do bulk item pickup like refrigerators, washers, etc. and brush and limbs. They will not take any televisions, paints, solvents, or tires. When calling for pickup, make sure you let the call taker know what you want picked up so the right crew will be sent. After our annual community cleanup, we will coordinate the pick up of everyone's items.

If anyone has large items they want to donate to Goodwill such as furniture, big-screen TVs, etc., contact Ann Snelling, Special Projects Assistant at 615-346-1247. She will schedule a truck to pick up the items.

Every homeowner should learn how to test household water pressure. Periodically testing the water pressure can not only detect household leaks, but it can also find symptoms of potential water system problems for the household. The process of testing a home's water pressure is not expensive or difficult.
     Unfortunately, many homeowners do not test the water pressure until there's a noticeable difference in their home's water flow. A little preventive maintenance ensures an even water flow, catches leaks early and saves the homeowner money on costly water damage and repairs. Water Pressure Regulators are recommended to be installed when pressure exceeds 60 psi.

Testing Water Pressure
1. Purchase a water pressure test gauge. Homeowners can go to their local home supply store such as Lowe's or Home Depot and pick one up rather inexpensively. Home Depot sells one for $11.00.
2. Locate a functioning outside water faucet. It is important that the faucet is properly sealed and does not leak. Using an excessively leaking faucet may skew the results.
3. Attach the water pressure gauge to the outside faucet and turn the water on fully. The gauge will read the water pressure reading for the house. Depending on the area, house water pressure can range between 40 psi and 100 psi.
4. Turn off the outside faucets and test the water pressure for each level of the home. Go inside the house and test the water pressure in the bathroom shower, kitchen sink and any of the area where water runs. Remove either the shower head or the faucet nozzle and attach the water pressure gauge. Turn on the water full blast and test the pressure.
5. Narrow the area of the problem. If your pressure readings are not consistent, by attaching the water pressure gauge to various faucets in the house, you should be able to pinpoint the cause of the pressure variance.
