The PPHOA board met with the Ascension Sherriff’s Department earlier this week. Reason for this meeting was that Sherriff Wiley witnessed a minor driving recklessly on a golf cart while he was visiting our subdivision.
The Sheriff’s Department told the HOA they will take action when they see minors driving golf carts in Pelican Point. Besides patrolling the neighborhood for stop-sign and speeding violations, Sheriff’s deputies will patrol the neighborhood and watch for golf cart operators who are not old enough to have a driver’s license. The Sherriff’s Department also mentioned that a golf cart should be covered by liability insurance. Be aware that deputies could ask golf cart drivers for their insurance paperwork.
The HOA board believes this information needed to be communicated to the residents. Even though Pelican Point is a unique subdivision, the majority of the roads in our neighborhood are public streets. Please respect your neighbors by driving safely and obey the speed limit in our subdivision both in your vehicle and on your golf cart.

Attention Home/Property Owners: There are some home/property owners that red tip photinias planted near electrical boxes, water/sewer lines, or telephone/cable boxes. These shrubs can grow quite large & have extremely aggressive root systems. The developer originally planted these, and we are asking everyone to PLEASE REMOVE THESE!
Before attempting to dig up red tip photinias or plant new shrubs, you must contact the utility companies and they will come out and mark their lines. Replacement shrubs should be planted a safe distance from any utility boxes.
Should these roots cause damage to utility boxes or cause service interruption, you, as the Home/Property Owner, could be liable. Thank you for your attention & please encourage your friends/neighbors to remove these also!

ICE-In Case of Emergency
This is a standard procedure all paramedics follow at the scene of an accident when they come across your cell phone:
We all carry our mobile phones with name and numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other then ourselves, knows which of these numbers belong to our closest family or friends. If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phones but wouldn't know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency?
Hence this "ICE" (In Case of Emergency) Campaign, the concept of "ICE" is catching quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As cell phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be contacted during an emergency under the name "ICE".
The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents, there were always cell phones with patients, but they didn't know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose. In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital staff would be able to quickly contact the right person by simply dialing the number you have stored as "ICE'.
For more than one contact name, enter "ICE1", "ICE2", and "ICE3" etc. A great idea that will make a difference. Let's spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our cell phones today.
