Money Down the Drain?

Noticed a recent increase in your sewer bill? Annually, with the first bill for service after July 1, your annual non-metered use is computed.  If your increase was substantial, call Pima County Wastewater Management at 724-6609, Option 4.  They will review your account. They automatically use the previous Dec/Jan/Feb as the months to compute water usage and charge you for the year based on that sewer volume.  If you think a different 3 month period would show lower usage, they'll check it for you. You will need both the acct numbers from the City of Tucson (sewer) and CWC (water) to do the review.  

Higher Than Normal -- Yay!
The numbers confirm everyone's sense that July was wonderfully wet. While EE's total may be slightly different, Accuweather's official report for Green Valley is 4.12 inches. Normal for July is 3.38" and the July 2013 total was 3.08".

We're Lookin' Good
Thanks to the diligence of our weed wackers, Tom Cooke and Boyd Morse, EE's common areas are virtually weed free this summer. We also applaud the efforts of our homeowners to keep weeds out of their yards.  Given the rain we've had, how good we look is pretty amazing. Thanks also to Dean Hess and the Hot Desert crew for keeping other common area landscaping in fine shape.

Peanut Butter
The GV Food Bank has an urgent need for donations of peanut butter.  If you can help, you can drop off jars (or gift cards specifically earmarked for peanut butter) at 210 Continental Road or deposit the jars in the bin at the EE Ramada. 

EE History
In case you missed it, there's a picture of one of Earl Whigham's 1974 advertisements for EE homes in the GV Celebrating 50 Years section on page B4 of the Sunday GV News.
The ad aptly asks: "Why not first class?"

For The Birders
Starting this fall, one Saturday per month, October through April, Tucson Audubon's Paton Center for Hummingbirds in Patagonia will offer three separate activities: hike, learn and eat. You can attend one, two, or all three activities.  On October 4, the kickoff Seven Saturdays speaker is Tucson Audubon's Restoration Ecologist, Jonathan Horst, who will talk about the region's sub-species.  On each of the Seven Saturdays, the day's events begin early with a guided Bird and Biodiversity Hike (advanced online signup required).  Following the morning hike the Relaxed Lecture Series will provide informal discussions on a variety of topics. Then, join fellow birders, biodiversity enthusiasts, and armchair conservationists for a Picnic in Patagonia.  For more information, visit, call 520-629-1510 or email
