October
National (Texas) Night Out -- Tuesday, October 4 -- In the evening, join your neighbors in your front yard to celebrate the event.  This is a great opportunity to get to know your neighbors better.  We are inviting the Constables to drive through the neighborhood between 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. and to stop and get to know you better. 
Community Garage Sale - Fall Community Garage Sale will be held Saturday, October 15 from 7:00 to 12:00 Noon.

September

Cy Fair School classes have begun.  Here are some school safety tips from Pct. 4 Constable Mark Herman.
Our Pool is now closed.
Yard of Month -- Congratulations to 10807 Rustling Winds for being selected as September Yard of Month.

Capital Improvements in our Community
1)  The wrought iron fence around the pool is being replaced.  After many years of repairs, the time has come to totally replace the fence.  You'll notice that one section of the fence is currently being held up with locked bicycle chains.

2)  When the pool fence project is complete, the privacy fence in the pool/playground area will be replaced.  A self-locking gate will be added to this privacy fence for use by those who exercise on the HCFCD property.  Any homeowner who would like a key to this gate, please send an e-mail to HBTMHOA@yahoo.com.  You will be assigned a numbered key that cannot be duplicated.  At that time, HCFCD will lock the wrought iron gates at the Goodspring and Perry cut-throughs.  Here is a statement we have received from HCFCD management: 
"The District allows passive use of its channels.  Things like walking your dog, jogging or riding a bicycle are considered passive use and are fine.  The District does NOT allow any unauthorized vehicles on its channels.  Motorized vehicles are not allowed (no ATVs, no motorcycles, cars, etc.)".

The cost of these capital improvements will come from HBTM HOA's contingency reserve fund.  As required by the HOA Rules & Regs, a percentage of the yearly budget is set aside for capital improvements such as this.

August - Congratulations to 10906 Willowmist for being selected August Yard of Month.

July - Congratulations to 10822 Harvest Sun for being selected July Yard of Month.
July board briefs can be viewed here.
Buyer Beware -- A homeowner asked that we share with you that if you have or are thinking about purchasing insurance for water lines and/or sewer lines to be sure to read the fine print to ensure that your existing lines are covered.  It is probable that our existing water lines are made of polybutylene and many of the insurance companies do not cover lines made of this product.  We thank the homeowner for bringing this to our attention. 

June - Congratulations to 10835 Harvest Sun for being selected June Yard of Month.

May -- Congratulations to 9522 Walnut Glen for being selected May Yard of Month. 
May board briefs can be viewed here.

Update - Privacy fences at Goodspring and Perry Road cut-throughs -- after many months of discussion and input from Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD) and the constables, the privacy fences at these two cut-throughs have been installed.  The purpose for the fence is to reduce/eliminate the number of people entering our subdivision using HCFCD property, people who are doing so for nefarious reasons.  We have received the following statement from HCFCD management "The District allows passive use of its channels.  Things like walking your dog, jogging or riding a bicycle are considered passive use and are fine.  The District does NOT allow any unauthorized vehicles on its channels.  Motorized vehicles are not allowed (no ATVs, no motorcycles, cars, etc.)".  The wrought iron gates will be locked after a new privacy fence is installed in the pool/playground area with a self-locking gate.  Those homeowners who want to use the channel for walking/jogging will be given a key that will be numbered and cannot be duplicated.
 
March/April - Gloria Valigura was re-elected to the board at the Annual Homeowners meeting.  Thanks to all who voted.
April Yard of Month - Congratulations to 10822 Willowmist for being selected as April Yard of Month.  Homeowners, keep up the good work.
