Reiterated from previous notes:  With all the wind and water, slide hazards continue! 
Rem, A slide at Saratoga Beach occured recently.    Everyone needs to keep well away from the cliffs at our beach.  
This was the area where people carved names into the sand - adding to the danger.
Some young children (unattended by a responsible adult) were seen playing at the beach recently on one of the cliff slides.  This is EXTREMELY dangerous.  The children were warned off but soon went back to playing there.  The community members who saw them do all of this engaged them in a game with their own kids and kept them safe.  This time. All young children must be accompanied by an adult.
Enjoy our beautiful beach but, please, keep safe.

It is unlawful for dogs to leave the property of their owners without being on leash.  Or for them to chase "game" animals, such as deer, rabbits, birds. It goes without saying that dogs should not be chasing our neighborhood cats. Barking dogs which annoy 3 or more separate households are also in violation of the County statute. The penalty to an owner for such incidents can include pound fees and other fines.  In the case of roaming animals, it might also result in your dog's loss of life if law enforcement deems the animal dangerous.  (See our Community Standards section for more detail.)  Please do the neighborly thing and keep your pet under your control at all times.
ALSO - neighborly dogs have owners who clean up after them on walks :)  Please bring a poop bag along with you so that all of us can continue to enjoy walking our lovely community.  Thanks, in advance!
