Asbury HOA Grounds Report for year 2022-2023
Trees were trimmed and removed (due to age and wind damage) throughout the common grounds. HOA Ash tree infestation was identified within the Asbury common grounds this past year in a couple of trees that were removed. The committee will continue to monitor the ash trees health and vitality.
Mowing, fertilizing and weed control on the acres of common grounds as well as the islands in the cul-de-sacs was completed as planned. Spot spraying for thistles in the area along Scrip Road plus weed control on the ball diamond was completed and will be done each year going forward.
Another small connecting path was replaced with concrete this past year. The (3) primary paths were seal coated to protect the surface for the near term.
Street light maintenance was limited to electric eye control switches and bulbs.
Snow removal along Illinois Ave was completed on the side walk between Asbury Drive and Asbury Boundary Line that is under HOA responsibility. A portion of said sidewalk from Asbury Place south is the responsibility of the homeowner whose property abuts the sidewalk. The Board hired J&M Lawn Care & Snow Removal to clear snow off the primary paths this past winter.
This next year, 2023-2024, the committee will continue to plan for tree trimming and tree removal as needed due to aging or damage of certain trees. Contracts have been arranged for the Fertilizing/Weed Control services at the same pricing structure as in past years. The contract for lawn services by J&M will increase by 5% due to inflationary costs.
As a reminder, HOA members and their guests are asked to comply with the rule to clean up after pets on all pathways, sidewalks and common areas.
