Let there be light: and there was light.
That’s a phrase I have been waiting to complete for 13 months.
In October of 2009 we requested that the street light at the end of Ramonas Lake Court be turned on. This request was placed with the developers of The Lakes at Antioch. We followed up on several occasions but still no light. Progress Energy never received authorization to activate the light. After a year we just gave up. Recently it was mentioned again to the developer but to no avail.
Enter the new members of the Lakes at Antioch Home Owners Association. Just a week or so after Charlie starts calling Progress Energy, we have light! Now Charlie will tell you that he went through more red tape that he thought possible and he was extremely persistent since it took multiple calls a day. (Progress Energy also found some issues and it took extra time to repair.) This is the very reason that we need an HOA especially with the level of involvement that this neighborhood has: neighbors caring for neighbors.
Our HOA is accomplishing things right from the start!
Extra thanks also go out to Charlie and his brother James for the clean up of the construction debris from two locations. Making a “deposit” that the builder couldn’t ignore was just so funny I couldn’t stop laughing! This was another issue that had been unresolved for over a year and yet once again our new HOA comes through.
…and there was light.
