Tipton Tidbits


Trash toters
Trash toters should be stored out of sight, such as in a garage or screened from view, when not in use. Please do not leave your toter out where it can be easily seen from the street view of your home. The Association regularly inspects the property for toter violations. Members will receive a violation notice if the toter is not stored properly.

Call before digging
Finding out if it’s safe to dig on your property is as easy as dialing 811 to arrange for utility companies to mark locations of underground lines.

Lake treatment schedule
Remember to watch for red buoys in the lakes. These indicate a 24-hour prohibition on swimming, eating fish and general contact with the water.

• June 28

• July 26

• Aug. 23

• Sept. 20

The above dates are subject to change with possible inclement weather conditions.

If you are planning an event, you may want to check with the Association office, 812-342-8522, to see if the lake treatment schedule has changed.

Round up those weeds
A little bit of weed killer on your sidewalks and curbs works wonders to beautify your yard.

Mowing your lawn
One way to be a good neighbor in the spring and summer: Avoid early morning hours or times when a neighbor is hosting an outdoor event when mowing your lawn.

Grass clippings
One way to be a good Association member in the spring and summer: Do not blow grass clippings into the lake. They just end up in the bottom of the lake, costing more to maintain our clean lake system.

Pedestrian paths
Help us maintain our pedestrian paths. Although we perform a yearly audit on the conditions of our paths, there are miles and miles of them to keep track of. If you notice a problem area, please call the Association office. In addition, the Association maintains the grass between the path and the curb. However, homeowners maintain the area inside the path. If there is a problem with overgrown landscaping that impedes passage on the paths, please let the Association office know and staff will contact the owner. Assistance from owners in maintaining of plant material along the path is greatly appreciated.

City chuckhole patrol
City chuckhole patrol has swung into action and is patching those annoying holes that popped up everywhere in the streets over the winter. City residents wishing to report chuckholes may call the City Garage at 812-376-2508, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
