Golf clubs stolen

There was a theft of golf clubs last week on Wednesday evening at 2328 Whispering Way. They were taken from the garage which had been left open. Police were notified about the theft.
Please, always close your garage door. We drive at night at our subdivision to check and always find some garage doors that had been left open inadvertently.
Thanks

We need to update our Directory

When our Welcoming Committee greets new homeowners, please get their names, phone NO. and e mail address if they have one. The WP Board should have a Master Directory so we can update it every time a new homeowner arrives at WP. Then please pass along this information to the Block Captains so we are aware of the new neighbors in our block.
This last time we had to communicate with the people in our block to informing them about the porch furniture theft at Quite Ct., I didn’t have the names or phone NOS. of 3 of my neighbors.
Thanks
Ed Arauco

Pest control solicitation

There is a service man knocking at doors asking if we want pest control service. Homeowners did not see a vehicle. He was wearing a bright blue shirt with a logo in bright yellow. Obviously he parks and starts walking knocking at doors. All we can do at this point, if he knocks at your door, is to warn him that what he is doing Is illegal. We have a large sign posted at the front entrance stating “No soliciting allowed at WP”
Thanks

Hi everyone. I just received a call from Pam Smith, 2339 Quiet Court, and sometime between 11:30 last night (Friday) and 8:00 today all their front porch furniture was stolen. Pam said their lights were on all night. The police have been notified. Sue, please spread the word with your neighbors so they are aware and can spread the word. Please be vigilant and always keep your front porch and back lights on at night and report any suspicious activity to Police.
Thanks

Mayor Action Line (MAC)

On June 1, 2015, the Mayor’s Action Center (MAC) will begin using a new internal system to process your requests for city services. By streamlining the way MAC representatives enter, process, and query requests, the new system will allow us to provide an even higher level of customer service.

Since Mayor Ballard took office more than 7 years ago, the MAC has worked to make it as easy as possible for constituents to request government services. We cut wait times from more than 1 ½ minutes to less than 23 seconds, added web-based and mobile options, and invited customer feedback to improve the way we operate. In order to continue our trend of enhanced service, a technology upgrade is necessary. With this newest initiative, the MAC will be among the first municipal government call centers to implement Salesforce’s cloud-based system and will be able to process requests more efficiently. Frequent MAC users will notice increased speed in tracking the status of a request and enhanced accuracy in the way services are dispatched to respond to a request once the system is fully functional.

During the system transition, callers may experience longer than usual wait times. The MAC team thanks you in advance for your cooperation, patience and understanding during this time. Please review the bullets below for additional information regarding service changes and improvements as a result of this system upgrade.

Live Mayor’s Action Center Operations:

• You will still be able to request City services by calling the MAC at 327-4MAC (4622) weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
• On Friday, May 29, the MAC will close at 12:00 p.m. in preparation for the new system launch. The MAC will reopen for normal business hours beginning on Monday, June 1 at 7:30 a.m. During this brief closure, you may still enter service requests via www.indy.gov/RequestIndy or by using the free RequestIndy mobile app.
• The first time you call the MAC on or after June 1, a representative will ask for your contact information. By providing your contact information, your phone number will now automatically be linked to all of your activities with the MAC. This new feature will allow MAC representatives to enter requests and track status updates faster.
• The option to place an anonymous report will still be available, even when using your contact information. If you provide your contact information and place an anonymous report, your contact information will not be accessible on the report for any public record request.

RequestIndy:

• You can still submit a request for service online anytime through RequestIndy at www.indy.gov/requestindy or through the free mobile app for Android and iPhone devices. These services will not change.
• To check the status of cases entered before June 1st via RequestIndy, please call the Mayor’s Action Center during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.) Status updates on cases entered after June 1st will be accessible through the RequestIndy status check feature.
