Fairways Council has passed a trash policy. It will be enforced beginning November 1.
Trash Policy: It is the policy of The Fairways Condominium to place trash at the curb no earlier than 5:00 p.m. the evening before trash pickup days. All trash should be placed in covered plastic/rubber waste containers, to the extent possible. Food waste and food-container waste, including pizza boxes, must be placed in covered plastic/rubber waste containers. Trash bags may be placed at the curb for collection by the waste management company only if they do not fit in a trash can and if they are filled with non-food and non-food-container waste. Per borough regulations, disposable plastic bags placed at the curb must be securely tied at the top for collection, may not exceed 30 gallons, and may not weigh more than 35 pounds when filled. Larger household items and large empty boxes are also acceptable at the curb. Owners will have 30 days from the publishing of this policy to comply. After that date, violation letters will go out and fines will be assessed upon a second violation.
The October meeting of the Fairways Council will be held on October 16 at 7:30 at the Woodlands Activity Room at Longwood. An agenda will be posted here before the meeting.
The Fairways Council will be considering a special assessment to cover several large-ticket maintenance issues at its August 21, 2017 Council meeting at the pool at 7:30 p.m. We will also have a discussion of a possible trash policy.

Fairways Council would like to remind you about the community snow removal policy.
1. “Community-wide” snow removal and sur-face treatment only occurs when a “single” snowfall event reaches 3” or more. Feerst Snow Removal will perform this service. Snow will be removed from the driveway, walkway & steps. Snow or ice removal un-der 3” is the responsibility of the unit owner.
2. “Sidewalk” snow removal (along Fairways Drive, Pinehurst Lane & the private road) is mandated by the borough to be removed at 1” or more within 12 hours of the snowfall. Feerst Snow Removal is contracted to per-form this service as well.
*For your convenience, Feerst Snow Removal is now available to any owner wishing to have snow removal service for a snowfall or ice event under 3”. You may contract with Tim Feerst privately and directly for the entire win-ter season at your expense, and at a rate of $25 per removal. Snow Removal Service will in-clude the driveway, walkway & steps, and you will be billed monthly. You can make
arrangements or inquiries directly with Tim Feerst at 412-795-3945.
Please do not call Acri or Fairways Council members regarding this service.
