The Maintenance Committee works to maintain the grounds and to keep paths, walkways and stairways in the landscape in safe and usable condition. Full details about the Maintenance Committee can be found in the Homeowner Handbook (Pages 15-16).
The current practice is to arrange for snow removal in the Alleys when the snow accumulation is two inches or more. After a snowfall, parking permit holders and guests of homeowners are responsible for moving their vehicles to a plowed area. Snow must not be moved from homeowner patios to alleys, driveways or garage courts after the plows have completed snow removal.
Trash and Recycling:
Currently, trash removal is on Tuesday mornings. The City of New Brighton manages the recycling program; pick up is every other Tuesday morning (click here for this year's schedule). Guidelines for preparing materials for recycling are regularly distributed as well as available on the City's website here.
All recycling and trash containers should be kept inside the garage except when trash is picked up. Containers must be placed a minimum of three feet out from the garage overhang. After pick-up, please move the empty containers away from the mail slot so as not to inconvenience the mailperson.
Only plant materials and soil may be brought to the bins behind the Windsor Green office for disposal. All other materials, such as metal containers, discarded furniture, etc, must be recycled or disposed of through regular trash collection.
Composting of organic waste:
While there is no composting available on Windsor Green property, the closest drop off site for organic waste is just 2 miles away, by the St Anthony Community Center. Click here to access more information on Ramsey County's website, and scroll down the bottom of this page for more info on what can be composted.
Clean Up Day:
The City of New Brighton traditionally has a clean-up day in the spring and fall when larger household items can be brought to a central location for disposal. For the schedule and fees involved, contact the city offices.
The way our townhome community was built, each home does not have its own water meter. Instead, each bank of homes has one water meter (see locations on the map).The cost of water and sewer is a significant expense for the Association and is paid by the Association as part of the monthly dues. Water conservation is the responsibility of each homeowner--water leaks should be repaired promptly.
For any problems with plugged drainage, Windsor Green's recommended vendor is Ron the Sewer Rat, they can be reached at 612-724-8253.
The maintenance staff are responsible for work on the common property during work hours and are not to be involved in work for individual homeowners. Please contact the Maintenance Chairperson or the President of the Board with any question.
