Good evening PMLE 5,6,7. We hope that you had an excellent Christmas and a safe and happy New Year. That said, we have a few things to announce for all.
We typically always have a January Meeting. Ours was scheduled for January 23rd, 2021, however, will not be taking place. The Board of Supervisors met and voted that they would not allow any outside entities, such as ourselves, to use the building through the end of February 2021. They will meet again in February to vote on the remainder of our dates (April 24, 2021; June 26, 2021; September 23, 2021) and let us know.
So, to ensure that our members receive accurate and up to date information, in lieu of not having a board meeting, we are still pushing our newsletter. Attached you will find our newsletter with all of the high level detail of the things we would have discussed at the board meeting. We are providing it in a format that you can easily read here on the website, as well as a downloadable file that you can print for convenience, should you feel the need to.
We, also, want to reiterate, that Facebook is a "community page", owned and operated by community members, where all manner of things are posted, such as things being sold, anger fueled posts, swiping at other community members (in a verbal sense), etc. While this behavior is childish and not very adult like, it's the nature of the beast. Facebook is a "social" community where community members can share, not an official outlet of the board. For convenience, we publish a link to this community news article, to get as much exposure as possible, and on occasion we have published a live board meeting for those that like to attend and can't get to the meetings in person. Please be reminded that Facebook is not an official outreach of the board, nor is it endorsed by us, therefore, we will not respond to posts in a board capacity, especially anger fueled, finger pointing posts. These are not constructive, especially considering the cliques that reside in this community, the pot stirrers/social media warriors, and differing opinions. It never leads to anything good and usually leads to further division. The fact of the matter is that we're neighbors. We certainly don't have to like each other, but we should be a little more considerate of our neighbors, because I'm sure if the shoe were on the other foot, you wouldn't appreciate the same level of non-sense being done to you.
Which is a great segue into the topic of problems, issues, complaints with neighbors. While there is no police force directly assigned to the Dingmans Ferry area, we implore you to handle problems correctly. If you see a safety issue, have a noise complaint or see a violation, contact your local authorities. However, we would suggest that you reach out to your neighbor directly to work it out with them, before resorting to the authorities. The PMLE board is not a baby-sitting service. Decent human beings should know how to deal with their neighbors, should already know how to behave or act, etc. Please try and work on the issues with your neighbors as a starting point.
Last, but certainly not least, if you want to be on our email mailing list for newsletters, please send us your email address. This information is not shared with other entities, nor will we use it for anything other than the newsletters that get posted quarterly.
Information and news brought to you by the Board of Directors for PMLE 5,6,7.
